MSNBC’s Katy Tur is most notably known for three things. Not being very bright. Being one of the few women in the universe to date Keith Olbermann. And perhaps most famous for proclaiming journalists are like firefighters, because after all, reading from a teleprompter and writing articles is totally like risking one’s life to go into a burning building and saving people. It was at that moment that the media’s inflated sense of self-importance became undeniably clear and it’s been a basis for parody ever since.
Like AOC, Tur has lots to say but pretty much all of it is stupid. But in her defense, her only degree is a BA Philosophy and her father is a transgender named Zoey, so who knows what crazy things are going on behind those eyes.
Recently, she bemoaned “gerrymandering” in Senate races, which happens to not be a thing since state lines can not be gerrymandered. Not to be outdone by herself, Tur simply moved her beer to the other hand as she illustrates the bubble more media types live in these days by making another ridiculous comment. In case you missed this bit of broadcast brilliance from a few days ago, here is another one of Tur's AOC moments:
Katy Tur: "When I ask people if they’re voting for [POTUS], I hear about their 401(k)s a lot … but there are those out that who don't have a 401(k) [and] this economy is not really working for them."— 𝚒'𝚖 𝚊 𝚑𝚒𝚐𝚑𝚠𝚊𝚢 𝚝𝚜𝚊𝚛 (@BecketAdams) February 11, 2020
"They can get a car, but it's a loan that will take 30 years.”

I’m sorry, did Katy Tur really just say “they can get a car, but the loan will last then 30 years?”. Huh?— Brittany (@bccover) February 11, 2020
But fear not, Don Lemon. We all know it won't be long before we see another video clip of your famous AOC moments. Few are in your league.
