Summary Unbelievable My Front Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History Unbelievable My Front Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History Free read ä 0 Katy Tur » 0 Characters 7 hours 46 minutes Called disgraceful third rate and not nice by Donald Trump NBC News correspondent Katy Tur reported on and took flak from the most captivating and volatile presidential candidate in American historyTur lived out of a suitcase for a year and a half following Trump around the country powered by packets of peanut butter and kept clean with dry shampoo She visited forty states with the candidate made than 3800 live television reports listened to endless loops of Elton John’s Tiny Dancer a Trump rally playlist stapleFrom day. If you paid attention to the 2016 campaign you had to notice Katy Tur She was a veteran but virtually unknown NBC correspondent assigned to the Trump campaign in its early days when his presidential run was considered to be little than a joke Tur s fame grew as Trump gained momentum and the Donald s angry yet weirdly flirtatious treatment of her as she sat in the centrally located pen which housed the press at every rally soon turned her into the embodiment of fake news itself and a focus for the attention of Trump s increasingly hostile crowdI followed her closely from the first pleased with her luck in drawing the Trump card impressed by her pluck and tenacity and at times when the boos of at a rally grew in intensity genuinely afraid for her physical safety This was the 2016 campaign memoir I wanted most to read and I was in no way disappointedTur is a savvy perceptive observer shrewd enough to know her limitations She doesn t reflect at length on the significance of the campaign but instead uses an unadorned informal style to tell us the Hollywood version of the story how a plucky thirty something bachelor girl reporter found fame and fortune covering the dark horse and eventual winner of a volatile presidential campaign Tur never loses sight of this basic story but she finds opportunities along the way to make scores of shrewd observationsHer writing is sharp filled with just the right details whether she is describing her break up with her Paris boyfriend Benoit I told him I was too old to fight on the street her wardrobe I bought the same J Crew sweater in fifteen different colorsalong with a rainbow collection of scarves or the deterioration of her early sartorial habits under the pressures of the campaign We ve all started dressing like the Saturdays we rarely get off any The structure of the book alternates between a chronological account of the Trump campaign as she experienced it and close up vignettes of election day events and reflections This structures allow Tur to give her book depth and perspective without ever abandoning her casual collouial styleI ll end with two examples of that style First her meeting with Trump before her first sit down interview Certain people have a presence that s bigger than their physical size an ability to ripple the air They fill the room with significance or at least with a perfect imitation of it Trump has that kind of presenceAnd he s orange There s no other way to describe him He s the color of orange marmalade perhaps a shade darker like marmalade on toastHe also doesn t say hello exactly but sort of sings it He smiles and suints and the sound seems to slip out the side of his face And her reflection at a campaign event in the Mar a lago ballroom It s actually kind of impressiveBut as I watch all this money walk around as I survey a room of people nipped tucked and sucked to their ideal of perfection I can t help thinking of Trump s rally crowds The people in this room are decidedly not the people at his rallies The rally people arrive in denim flannel and thick soled boots They wait for hours eat whole pizzas in the security line tattoo Trump s face on their forearmsThe people in this ballroom are not the subject of Trump s speeches either Their industries aren t dead Their jobs didn t disappear overseas More likely these are the people shipping the jobs overseas These are the people slashing budgets and enhancing their own bottom line while the bottom falls out of everyone else s livesWhat would the people at Trump s rallies say about the people at his victory parties What would the folks who are fanning Trump s political flames think of all these gilded types trying to warm themselves by Trump s new fire
