Katy Tur and Trump bootlicker Francis Rooney matched wits this morning, during which both revealed themselves to be fucking morons.
KT: A lot of folks in the Trump administration…have a friendlier view of Russia than…past administrations.
FR: It was Obama that leaned over to Putin and said ‘I’ll have a little more flexibility to give you what you want after the reelection’.
KT: I’m sorry, I don’t know what you’re referring to.
That was like watching 2 koala bears take an Algebra test.
Ftr, Obama in 2012 did in fact “lean over” and promise more “flexibility” to the Russian president.
But that Russian president wasn’t Vladimir Putin– as Rooney claimed– it was then-President and current-Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev:
Katy has since tried to play it off like an “honest” mistake…
And I'd rather be honest about what I know and don't know in the moment. Got off air, did the research, then talked about it at 5pm on MTPD. https://t.co/BJ3RCJheIg

She makes no apologies, however, for being condescending AF– and clearly assuming that the rube congressman was making shit up…
Though to be fair that was hot and I would do her.
