MSNBC anchor Katy Tur reacted to President Trump’s address about an Iranian missile attack by complaining about the “white military men” who stood with him.
In the wake of escalating conflict between the U.S. and Iran, culminating in two Iraqi airbases housing U.S. forces being targeted by Iran’s launch of more than a dozen missiles, Tur’s response to the president’s speech on Wednesday was to voice her disdain for the officials who stood behind him.
Tur kicked off her MSNBC segment by recapping Trump’s earlier address, strangely choosing to focus for a moment on the race and gender of the Joint Chiefs of Staff standing behind the president during his speech.
“Flanked by stern white military men, the President addressed the world this morning, following Iran’s attack on military bases housing American soldiers last night,” she said.
The MSNBC anchor even seemed to be bothered by the president not opening his remarks by saying “good morning.” Rather, she contended, Trump began by “demanding” that Iran not be allowed to have nuclear weapons, a view many people not suffering from anti-Trump issues would probably agree with.

Tur went on to emphasize how the president “asserted, without evidence,” that the Iranian military leader was planning an “imminent attack” on American personnel.
Just days ago, the NBC News correspondent was dumbstruck by the size of the crowds at the funeral for the deceased Iranian terrorist.
“A stunning show of solidarity just a few weeks after anti-government protests threatened to destabilize the country. It seems President Trump did what the Iranian government has been unable to do: unite the country,” she announced to viewers.
Tur was roasted on social media for her take and was schooled on the basics of Iranian propaganda.
The size of funeral crowds in authoritarian regimes is not an indication of popular support. In fact, the opposite is true. All those dictatorships are just trying to overcompensate for their lack of legitimacy. Let’s call it Legitimacy Envy. Soleimani’s funeral is no different. https://t.co/Abk6vmt6HQ pic.twitter.com/amyaTa5H63

Just because @MSNBC‘s Katy Tur is wowed by the size of the crowd mourning blood thirsty murderer Qassem Soleimani’s death at his funeral doesn’t mean there was indication of mass popular support in the crowd. Just ask @MessageFromLen https://t.co/AmHwn6vET9

I hope she also criticized the Ayatollah for being flanked by too many bearded old Iranian men. Where’s the diversity in 2020

The desire by left-wing news anchors to shoe-horn race and gender into every conceivable issue, even life and death national security matters, is a disturbing trend that only works to undermine the work of dedicated public servants… https://t.co/b7PtGNZFnD
