MSNBC: Donald Trump Will Kill Us!

You might think it was just a joke if you were watch­ing any other network.

Of course MSNBC’s Katy Tur was deadly serious:

MSNBC took its fear monger­ing smears of the Donald Trump admin­is­tra­tion to a dark new low Monday after­noon when reporter Katy Tur suggest­ed the president’s war with the media would start racking up actual casualties. During an inter­view with Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, a Repub­li­can, Tur suggest­ed Trump would take a page from Russian Presi­dent Vladimir Putin’s playbook and start target­ing journal­ists for death.

As we know, there’s, since 2000, been a couple dozen suspi­cious deaths of journal­ists in Russia who came out again­st the govern­ment there,” Tur remind­ed the Senator before unscrupu­lous­ly suggest­ing Trumps distaste for the media would escalate, “Donald Trump has made no secret about going after journal­ists and his distaste for any news that doesn’t agree with him here. Do you find that this is a danger­ous path he is heading down?

Fischer defend­ed the Presi­dent, saying that it’s his job to foster relation­ships with leaders from countries around the globe. “And I believe that Presi­dent Trump will recog­nize, or does recog­nize right now, who Putin is,” she added in his defense.

But Tur wasn’t having any of it, pressur­ing the Senator by asking, “What makes you say that he does recog­nize who Putin is when he hasn’t said so publicly?” The Senator tried to argue that the new presi­dent wasn’t going to sour the relation­ship right out of the gate, but was cut off by her inter­view­er. “There is a differ­ence between attack­ing and flatter­ing,” Tur spat.

The Senator tried to put Tur’s worries about Trump’s handling of Putin to rest, stating that Trump “will have very firm, very harsh, if need be, conver­sa­tions with Putin…” And that the United States would not allow Putin to “re-establish some kind of empire for himself…”

Tur scoffed at the idea that our allies would be reassured by the Trump White House. “We will see if they are convinced by that,” she said dismis­sive­ly.
