MSNBC’s Tur: “What Does it Mean” That Biden Can’t Attract a Crowd?

MSNBC’s Katy Tur was given the Donald Trump assignment in late 2015, when almost no one in the mainstream media thought the New York billionaire had the slightest prayer of winning the Republican nomination. Tur was a second-string reporter, and she got the second-string assignment: Cover the celebrity populist, have some fun at the rallies, and we’ll give our best reporters the more important business of covering the Jeb Bush campaign.

But in the process of covering Trump, Tur inevitably bumped her own career up a few notches. It wasn’t long before she and everyone else realized that Trump WAS the story of the campaign. And in her position as MSNBC’s embed reporter with the campaign, Tur had a front-row seat to history. She was there in every state, watching thousands of people turn out to watch Trump hold court while Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio were talking to VFW audiences of 15-20 retirees. Few reporters in the media know better what it looks like when a candidate is catching fire with the people.

So it isn’t too surprising that it would be Tur, uniquely, to look at the anemic crowds (if you can even call them that) that Joe Biden is drawing in Iowa and see trouble for the Democratic frontrunner.

“Biden and Buttigieg have basically had this state to themselves along with Yang and a couple others,” Tur said Monday. “Why is Buttigieg starting to surge and Biden not surging? What is going on with his support?”

Tur noted that Biden’s numbers in Iowa were faltering compared to Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, both of whom are stuck in Washington for the impeachment trial.

“Over the weekend Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg all got over a thousand people at rallies, Biden got a couple hundred,” Tur said. “What does that mean for his support going forward? You can hear the excitement from the crowds from Warren, from Sanders, from Klobuchar, and from Buttigieg. And then you hear Biden’s crowd and it’s just him, it’s just his voice.”

Tur, no doubt thinking about the president’s Wildwood rally where people were already camping out a day in advance, said, “As these candidates are getting a couple hundred, sometimes a thousand people, Trump is gonna fly in here, and if past is precedent, get 5,000, 10,000 people here in Des Moines.

“What does that say about the Democrats’ chances in November when Donald Trump is drawing crowds that are that big and the Democrats are not?” she asked.

Oh, Katy, you know exactly what it means – history is getting ready to repeat itself.

  1. I think Katie’s question was rhetorical. We all know what it means when a candidate is attracting maybe 100 or so versus someone who attracts ten’s of thousands.

  2. Why would anyone with a pea brain what to hear brain dead talking. Joe Biden is brain dead but
    doesn’t know it. I would rather watch the Disney Parade than brain dead Joe Biden. He probably
    pays the people in his audience with George Soros’s money.

  3. Katy is the Brain Dead one. She has been shamelessly in the tank for the DNC even though it was Trump’s campaign that got her a career worth having. Instead of using the access she should have been able to get, she squandered it by pandering to the MSNBC Squad. Stupid, Stupid little Girl. No one is going to see Settle Joe because watching a Train Wreck is okay the first time, but after the 10th, it is just painful to watch. Fauxahontas is reaching the same level, and is Bernie. HIs clown show is threatening to burn down states he loses in. The DNC is pulling out the Bernie Insurance Policy and polishing it up again. Butt Gig is just pandering his butt off and the rest, come on. Then there’s Trump. His rallies look more like parties than a speech. Compare that to a Biden rally. Still can’t figure it out?

    • Dims are dimwits- they have no common sense or street smarts what so ever. Why they keep loosing to reality- TRUMP 2020 KAGl

  4. What do you think it means? Nobody cares about the Creepy, Decrepit, Idiot, Asshole and his Crack Dummy Idiot Asshole son. They all need to fade away, drop dead or go to hell ASAP.

  5. Let’s see . . . NOBODY is coming to YOUR rally? I THINK that means that NOBODY is interested in what you have to say (Get it? NOBODY?!?). JUST a thought. Team Trump and his allies 2020.
