Journalist recalls moment when Trump allegedly kissed her

Written by  Natalie O'Neill

An NBC correspondent is claiming that then-candidate Donald Trump forced a smooch on her cheek that was so unwelcome, her entire body froze.

Katy Tur was covering Trump on the campaign trail last year when he allegedly dove in for the non-consensual kiss, she writes in the book, “Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History.”

“Before I know what’s happening, his hands are on my shoulders and his lips are on my cheek,” Tur writes of the awkward encounter. “My eyes widen. My body freezes. My heart stops.”

Tur feared that the kiss, which went down before an episode of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” would make her look unprofessional, she wrote, according to an excerpt of the book posted by AOL.com.

Her first thought was, “F–k. I hope the cameras didn’t see that. My bosses are never going to take me seriously,” she writes.

Trump on Tuesday slammed members of the “fake news” media who write books about him, apparently bashing Tur’s memoir.

“Fascinating to watch people writing books and major articles about me and yet they know nothing about me & have zero access. #FAKE NEWS!,” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump came under fire last year after a recording emerged in which he bragged about grabbing women “by the p—y.” He boasted, “When you’re famous, they let you do it,” raising questions about his disregard for physical consent.

Between 2015 and 2016, Tur traveled to more than 40 states as the “Trump correspondent” for NBC News and MSNBC.

And she waited until now to broadcast this instead of joining all those others. Oh maybe she wanted a "lone" accusation for the most publicity, all the attention on her...right!!!!

When will the insane democrats learn? The "rapist" schtick was tried already and failed miserably. I guess Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" is pretty much a "one trick pony" in that the tactics have been tried and the tactics have failed. Why keep trying them? You insane democrats remind me of the command staff of the Allied and German armies in world war one: using outdated tactics in a modern situation. Just look at how well that worked out. I mean, come on. You insane democrats are truly insane if you think that you can change the outcome of a failed experiment. At least TRY to come up with something new. This crap is getting boring.

Oh no, he kissed her on the cheek. But did she say anything when this travesty occurred?
