Elitist SNOB! MSNBC’s Katy Tur goes for the gold in SNEERING at working Americans

When she’s not outright lying to Americans, MSNBC’s Katy Tur keeps herself busy by outright mocking them:

Gentleman at Ohio Trump event says he’s going to save to start a family with his 1,000 dollar one time bonus.

Average cost to give birth to one child in Ohio is $5,836.

How dare he?!

He’s got some nerve keeping his money in hopes of bringing a child into the world. https://t.co/blWF9KDM2Z

Right?

that’s nice, he could buy $1,000 worth of ham if he wants, who cares https://t.co/A04N5Y05tJ

I had far less in savings when I had my first kid. Good for him. https://t.co/kHgk5ZpXYa

Or 10% of his Obamacare deductible! https://t.co/nYAo7lNUeY

— Federalist Musket (@Patriot_Musket) February 5, 2018

That $5,836 represents the cost that insurance pays, meaning policy holder pays a fraction of that amount (depending on deductible). So $1,000 may actually go a long way to paying for live birth. Could also cover about 2 years of diapers. https://t.co/CRabKPJgeC

HOLY SHIT. You mean the unexpected cash infusion is only going to pay for about 20% of his bill? His happiness must be hard to understand from that Ivory White Tower of Hackery https://t.co/ZC4mB8FMgm

But wait — there’s more sneering condescension where that came from:

Woman who just spoke says she’s going to use her $1,000 bonus and tax cut to help buy a home and pay for her two kids who are going to college.

In Hamilton Co, Ohio (where they are) avg home is $277,582

Avg cost of private college nationally ~35,000Public $19,000

— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) February 5, 2018

Yeah, people who can use an $1000 in their pockets — money they wouldn’t otherwise have — sure are stupid!

Right?! Who are these uncultured peasants to say $1000 matters? https://t.co/ygsCgAbOzj

Good thing we’ve got someone like Katy Tur to point out how ignorant we all are.

I’m saving to buy a new house.

Oh this paycheck doesn’t cover a house. I can literally never buy a house. https://t.co/cYfNIvJzEx

What part of “help” aren’t you getting https://t.co/Gc54tAydjU

— Alex Griswold (@HashtagGriswold) February 5, 2018

She didn’t say she was going to buy a $1000 house she said it’ll help go toward buying a house.

This snobbish dismissiveness from the media is why they get the hate they do https://t.co/pUsAtEHzI7

This is some monumentally absurd, condescending analysis.

If you got $1,000 and chose to save it, it would absolutely help with a future purchase, starting a family, or college tuition for kids. It doesn’t PAY for it, and no one thinks it does. https://t.co/r4DX5l3ytf

Imagine hearing a woman describe getting a $1,000 bonus and a tax cut and saying it would help buy a home, and then Googling how much the average home costs in the town she’s from to try to portray her as an idiot, like @KatyTurNBC did. Incredible.

— Steve Krakauer (@SteveKrak) February 5, 2018

I legitimately don’t get the point when the alternative is… not having that $1,000? Still not being able to pay for homes and children?

— Alex Griswold (@HashtagGriswold) February 5, 2018

The point is that Katy Tur is about as out-of-touch as it gets.

Do journalists know what it’s like to be poor? What $20/week could do for gas, food, something for a family? Man.

— Melissa Mackenzie 🌐 (@MelissaTweets) February 5, 2018

Fascinating logic, by the way. So it would be better if these little poor people didn’t get this $1,000? They will forever be childless and destitute? I mean, they couldn’t possibly have jobs or anything. Such a weird tweet. https://t.co/Ob70tyHF72

— David Rutz (@DavidRutz) February 5, 2018

So I assume Tur’s point is…these people shouldn’t even bother to have lofty goals?

Just enjoy their lot in life, I guess. https://t.co/X9Ec8MSGfY

The media and Democrats are REALLY going all-in with the argument that bonuses and pay raised are crumbs that mean nothing to people.

— Federalist Musket (@Patriot_Musket) February 5, 2018

Good idea to mock the plebes who are happy with an extra grand being paid to them. https://t.co/EaBEYjdI4Q

— Mike (@ThePantau) February 5, 2018

It’s me, a brave firefighter rushing in to condescend to working people who don’t understand how numbers work

— Alex Griswold (@HashtagGriswold) February 5, 2018

You put those fires out fast. https://t.co/c21P4x1hgV

— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) February 5, 2018

Nice… mocking people happy with an additional $1000 bonus, and painting them as stupid.

That’ll go a long way in gaining people’s trust in the media. https://t.co/eOCoujNced

Keep up the good work, Katy.
