2. I'm sure Maxine had a great response.

Sounds to me like Tur gave Rep. Waters a great opening to describe what Dems believe in.

14. Sometimes reporters play devils advocate. To allow people like Rep. Waters to shine.

I'd have to see the footage, but I think we agree Tur in general is not a GOP/Trump apologist.

Even if she were, I've got full confidence in Maxine Waters to handle a question like that.

25. she had Ms. Waters on to talk about the house visit from rosenstein.

when Waters gave her opinion, this was tur's comeback.

as if, 'you democrats are just against the president'.

i know when reporters play devil's advocate and this was not an instance.

it that way, too. LOL. She was giving her a chance for some positivity.

10. Me too. That was like a sucker-punch question, unlike her in the past

as far as I remember. Ticked me off.

Looks like Tur's gotten the new talking points. Oh well, another one bites the dust.

11. In the past, she was assigned to Trump. I waited until

I saw her reporting on Hillary to join the fan club and very glad I did. (There ARE a few advantages to being some decades older than many others.)

First time I saw Tur doing a discussion show on Hillary was literally the last time I've watched her. She was as viciously antagonistic and dishonest as any of the Fox alpha sharks. Unfortunately, she is very good at what she does.

18. Nope. We are for equality of all men. We are for

government of, by, and for the people. WE ARE THE PEOPLE AND WE ARE FOR THE PEOPLE. That sort of thing.

This "out of touch" thing is a direct offensive attack trying to project their own huge fault on the only party that truly represents the wishes of the people.

12. What do Democrats stand for? Everything that the republicans are trying to take away

from the most vulnerable in our society, and that goes from healthcare, social security, medicare, civil rights, women's rights, labor rights, to the environment.

Ms. Tur, you are an ignoramus

15. Well she had to balance out the latest commentary

That the Republican Party doesn't stand for anything anymore...it supports Trump...the party just exists to troll Dems...

It's "both sides ism"

Et tu Katy? Et tu?

17. We stand for the ordinary working families of this country, Katy.

Not their bosses.

Not their insurance companies.

Not their bankers.

Not the corporations that want to sell them things.

Not the airlines that want to drag them off planes.

None of that.

We stand for the ordinary people of this country.

Someone has to.

20. I'd have to see the exchange to judge

But Katy Tur has been one of the better reporters covering the Trump administration, and has earned its ire for her trouble.

The question posed could have and should have been asked for eight straight years of the Republicans: "What do Republicans stand for...or are you just against Barack Obama?"

As it is, the question is a fat, hanging curveball over the heart of the plate. I hope Rep. Waters deposited it in the cheap seats.

24. We stand against

disenfranchising voters, taking health care away from people. We stand against poverty and hunger and social services taken away from people just so the rich can be richer.

I like this answer because it justifies the argument they like to throw in our faces about standing against things. And it pretty much shuts them up because they can't very well admit out loud that they stand for those very same things.
