Trump Hammers Reporter, Asks His Own Tough Questions

During an interview with NBC’s Katy Tur, Donald Trump showed no signs of backing away from his comments on illegal immigration. He blasted Tur for her assertion that crime is down, telling her “Don’t try and convince me that there’s no crime, that it’s wonderful.”

A new clip has emerged which shows Trump taking this mainstream media reporter to task. At times, it’s painful to watch.

When Tur tries to cite statistics to back up her claim that crime from illegal immigrants is down, Trump cuts her off and says “Don’t be naive. You’re a very naive person.”

After stumbling over her words, Tur tries to continue, which leads Trump to tease her saying ‘come on, spit it out.’

He then lowered the hammer for the final shot – “I don’t know if you’ll put this on television but you don’t even know what you’re talking about!”

Watch the clip below …

The best part is when Tur says “illegal immigrants commit less crime, other than coming into the country illegally.

Yes, and bank robbers commit less crime, other than robbing banks. That logic is foolproof.

Your thoughts? Is Trump right to take the reporter to task? Does the mainstream liberal media need the dose of reality that Trump provides?
