When NBC News and MSNBC correspondent Katy Tur was assigned to cover the Trump presidential campaign, her editors assured her it would be short-term–no more than six weeks. Forty states and a year and a half later, Donald Trump was elected president. Now, Tur has published “Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History,” replete with campaign trail gossip and stories of being singled out by Trump at campaign rallies. Tur joins us in studio to discuss her experiences trailing Trump, today’s media landscape and the latest political news.

Katy Tur,
correspondent, NBC News; Anchor, MSNBC Live; author, “Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History”
