Trump Attacked MSNBC Anchor Katy Tur As ‘That Bitch With The Tranny Dad,’ New Book Claims





Donald Trump attacked MSNBC anchor Katy Tur as “that bitch with the tranny dad” and mocked The View co-host Meghan McCain for what he described as her getting “fatter,” according to a new book by Daily Beast reporters Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng, titled “Sinking in the Swamp: How Trump’s Minions and Misfits Poisoned Washington.”

The book, which is set to be published February 11 by Daily Beast reporters Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng, delves into Trump’s longtime contentious relationship with TV news personalities and highlights several anti-media rants dating back to the 2016 presidential election.

Newsweek reports: “An excerpt from the book portrays Trump as a manipulator of the news media, tangling with figures ranging from Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski to former Fox News anchor Abby Huntsman. The president routinely engaged in petty gossiping about the physical appearance of female journalists and constantly questioned why he doesn’t receive more positive news coverage.”



“He was prone to distraction and consumed by gossip and petty feuds. And he took any criticism as a personal slight against him and went scorched earth in response,” wrote Markay and Suebsaeng.

According to the excerpt released Sunday, Trump referred to then-NBC News correspondent Katy Tur as “that bitch with the tranny dad.”

Trump’s alleged insult references Zoey Tur, formerly Robert Albert Tur, a pilot and journalist who gained national notoriety covering several high-profile 1990s Los Angeles events including the O.J. Simpson Bronco chase. The elder Tur drew Trump’s ire after labeling him a “fascist” and “mentally ill” during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

In March 2019, Meghan McCain responded to Trump’s repeated attacks on her late father’s credibility by describing Trump’s life as “pathetic.”

She went on to say: “I don’t expect decency from the Trump family.”

This reportedly prompted Trump, who was diagnosed as obese last year, to pick up the White House phone and launch into a tirade with a confidante in which he asked, “She’s been getting fatter?” while discussing the appearance of her cheeks and waistline in obsessive detail.
