During the 2016 campaign, MSNBC’s Katy Tur said she had an unsettling experience with then-candidate Donald Trump.
Trump apparently tried to kiss Tur on the cheek, something Tur said made her feel very uncomfortable.
“Before I know what’s happening, his hands are on my shoulders and his lips are on my cheek,” Tur wrote of the encounter in her new book. “My eyes widen. My body freezes. My heart stops.”
She added that her thoughts immediately turned to if the encounter was captured on tape.
“F—. I hope the cameras didn’t see that,” she wrote. “My bosses are never going to take me seriously.”
In another odd exchange, Trump also told Tur, “You’ll never be president!”
Tur’s book came out on Tuesday and Trump does not appear to approve.
“Fascinating to watch people writing books and major articles about me and yet they know nothing about me & have zero access,” Trump tweeted out shortly after Tur promoted her book on the “Today” show. “#FAKE NEWS!”
