Tur is interrupting everyone on MSNBC

I won't bother to try to condense her comments, but the jist of it was that Cheato had a ragtag staff in 2016 and no one to warn him about breaking election law. Boo Hoo. Cry me a river.

She literally interrupted the attorney to wail about this in very dramatic terms, continuing to interrupt other panel members.

She is a plant working for the Trump campaign. It wasn;t long ago that someone working for a campaign had to resign from their news job.

and thus should not have any opportunity to exercise executive power. Trump has bad judgment, so should not be President.

(Fair Political Practices Committee) and we knew such act would be wrong.

Oh, hell. We didn't need the binder. We didn't need anyone to tell us what we'd known since we were children: Unethical behavior is never acceptable.

Something is going on - perhaps because she was busted and there’s even more to the story than we know. Hoo nose?

Horribly unfit for office either way.

She's trying to tell us that a "billionaire" major party candidate can't be expected to have the resources to know how to campaign legally.

Yeah right. It's either because he wanted to break the law (evil) or too stupid and inept to ask people who would know (incompetent).

Either way, it shows he'd make a horrible president, as if we didn't already know that....

large and in charge. They knew exactly what they were doing 24/7.
Tur is an insult to journalists everywhere and anyone who thinks clearly. She is certainly a plant and doing exactly what Cheato and Charles Koch want her to do.

whereas Hillary had to fight against a total double standard by the press, Russian propaganda, The Enquirer, the rightwing echo chamber, etc. She still won the popular vote even with all that, but my God it was unfair.

He knows who she is from when she covered his 2016 campaign. He called out her name at nearly every rally when he was railing against the media. He likes to surround himself with people whom he knows and he believes he can trust.

Or she just might be a lousy journalist.
