‘Ignore me. Ignore me’: Awkward moment MSNBC’s Katy Tur gets two flyover states completely confused

In an analysis of the upcoming 2018 midterm races, MSNBC’s Katy Tur confused two flyover states while on the air.

The MSNBC anchor mixed up Montana and North Dakota on her show Thursday while discussing midterm polling in Senate races with MSNBC reporter Steve Kornacki.


Tur got her facts jumbled as she pointed out Democratic North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp running in Montana, instead of Democratic Sen. Jon Tester.

“And, by the way, you’re looking at Montana in the ‘unassigned’ and Montana, the polling, doesn’t show Heidi Heitkamp in a particularly — I’m sorry, Tester,” Tur said. “Uh, not Montana. I’m talking about North Dak — nope, never mind.”

After some confusion, Kornacki attempted to save the MSNBC host.

“Tester — that’s the other possibility, that Republicans could add,” he said, as Tur tried to explain.

“Ignore me. Ignore me. I was getting Montana and North Dakota confused because — I don’t know, I just was,” Tur said.

Naturally viewers who witnessed the faux-pas were happy to mock Tur’s error on Twitter.
