FLASHBACK: Trump Calls 'Little Katy' Tur A 'Third Rate Reporter'

Apparently, the former reality TV star, who once bragged about molesting and groping women without their consent, placed an unwelcomed kiss on Tur's cheek - leaving her shocked.

"Trump lets go and saunters right onto the 'Morning Joe'set, seemingly very proud of himself", she continued, according to People magazine.

"Before I know what's happening, his hands are on my shoulders and his lips are on my cheek".

'My eyes widen. My body freezes. "My heart stops", she wrote.

'F***, I hope the cameras didn't see that. "My bosses are never going to take me seriously". Axios recently reported that he "hate" watches the program on occasion - so perhaps he was tuned in when the NBC News correspondent implied Trump tried to intimidate her with his campaign rhetoric.

The president has previously gone after Tur over her converge of him, calling her a "third-rate reporter", Business Insider reported. So, it's only slightly surprising to find out that Katy Tur-a renowned journalist who followed Trump's campaign trail-has claimed he kissed her without permission while she was working.

Covering a presidential campaign is full of challenges-but being kissed by a candidate is not usually one of them. Six thousand Trump supporters railing against 30 or so journalists - caged in the center of the arena like a modern-day Roman Coliseum, ' she wrote.

Tur was embedded with the Trump campaign throughout 2016 and it's safe to assume the president wasn't her biggest fan.

She said that initially, he was both kind and charming. Trump appeared to enjoy targeting Tur as an example of what he considered biased media and "fake news".

On Tuesday morning the President reacted to Tur's book by firing off an angry tweet about the "fake news" media.

In one chapter of her new memoir called "Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History,"released Tuesday, Tur wrote about traveling to New Hampshire to watch Trump be a part of an interview with MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on "Morning Joe".
