JOE SCARBOROUGH (CO-HOST): So Katy, in the article you actually talk about having to have Secret Service protect you from leaving events.

KATY TUR: Well --

SCARBOROUGH: That's extraordinary. 

TUR: It was just one event. It was the December 7th rally in South Carolina when he said -- 

SCARBOROUGH: Is that when [Trump] called you out?

TUR: He's called me out a number of times, but this is the one that he did in a -- I guess a more forceful way and it was after he announced the Muslim ban and the crowd was very -- and they always are, but they were very anti-media, thinking we were whipping up a controversy when he was trying to just put in procedures into place that would protect Americans. So he -- he was angry over some tweets, and he pointed me out in the middle of the crowd and it was jarring. I mean everybody turned and this one older woman, who had this like fearful look on her face, like "this poor girl." But the rest of the crowd was, I mean, just angry. I mean they were angry and at the end of it, at the end of it, one of Trump's -- I'm not going to say who, but one of Trump's people there got a Secret Service guy and said, "He's going to walk you to your car."
