October 25, 2018 2:58 pm

MSNBC host Katy Tur and conservative blogger Erick Erickson got in a heated back and forth Thursday about President Donald Trump’s responsibility for promoting dangerous rhetoric and encouraging violence.

“Let me finish,” Tur said sternly. “Have you ever heard a politician other than Donald Trump say I’m so proud, or give a kudos to another politician who bodyslammed a reporter. Have you heard that from anybody else other than Donald Trump?”

Erickson responded that “both sides” are to blame.

“I think everybody needs to take responsibility for their own actions to say it didn’t get lowered, that the bar did not get demonstrably lower when Donald Trump started running for office, is just not true and it’s offensive,” Tur responded.
