At a rally today in Miami, Florida, Donald Trump singled out NBC reporter Katy Tur. After a long-winded, but familiar, tirade against “the media” and dishonest reporting, Trump called out Tur directly. “There’s something happening, they’re not reporting it. Katy, you’re not reporting it....but there’s something happening, Katy” Trump said from the podium, referring to the size of the crowd at the rally. Reporters at the rally had earlier noted that the numbers in attendance were modest, yet Trump insisted otherwise.
According to reporters at the rally, crowd members began heckling Tur:
This isn’t the first time that Trump has used this tactic with Tur who has been reporting on his campaign since he first announced. Earlier this year, Trump launched a personal attack against her during a South Carolina rally. He was, apparently, upset about a handful of tweets she sent which noted the low attendance at that rally. “She’s back there. Little Katy. She’s back there,” Trump told the South Carolina crowd before describing her as a “third-rate reporter.” In a familiar pattern, Trump followed up that callout with a series of tweets aimed at Tur and reporter Sopan Deb.
