MSNBC’s Katy Tur Ridiculed with Sexist Remarks from Fox News Contributor
Fox News contributor Richard Grenell unloaded on MSNBC’s Katy Tur Friday morning on Twitter, saying she has “no clue” and suggesting that she landed her job because of a past relationship with Keith Olbermann.
He tweeted, “Calling yourself a journalist is offensive to real ones. Did u intern for @KeithOlbermann or date him? Either way doesn’t make u a reporter.”
It started when Grenell went after Tur over what he feels is biased reporting on the recent WikiLeaks document dumps. Grenell, a former Mitt Romney spokesperson, said, “MSNBC’s Tur has no clue about the Breaking News of the smoking gun email found.”
Tur, who has been one of the hardest-working reporters covering Donald Trump during the election season, seemed to take it in stride. Quoting one of Grenell’s tweets, she replied, “Classy.”
Tur appears on a variety of NBC and MSNBC programs, including “Today,” “Nightly News,” “Meet the Press” and most of MSNBC’s lineup. Trump has personally mocked her during campaign rallies, and she recently told Marie Claire that, “By Election Day, I’ll have lived out of a suitcase for a year and a half.”
According to Mediaite, Olbermann and Tur dated at one point, but broken up in 2010.
Olbermann, meanwhile, made his opinion of Trump clear in the tweet below:
