OUCH: Rep. Jordan Tells MSNBC Anchor He'll Buy Her Book Because it's '30 Percent Off'

An exasperated Katy Tur told her guest Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) at the end of their interview Friday that just once she'd appreciate it if he actually answer one of her questions.

"I've allowed you to go on your tangents," Tur said at one point when the two were sparring about the Trump-Russia dossier. Tur said parts of the dossier have been corroborated, while Jordan dismissed it as "garbage."

Jordan, not to be out quipped, randomly mentioned how he'd glanced at her election book the other day in Barnes & Noble. 

"Did you like it?" Tur wondered.

Not exactly, judging by how you interpret his answer.

"I'm going to get the whole thing. Yeah, it was like 30 percent off at Barnes & Noble, I need to buy it and read the whole thing," Jordan said.

Tur said there was no need, she'd "send him a copy."

Tur's book "Unbelievable" detailed her experience covering Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The president has singled out the MSNBC reporter more than once for what he perceives as biased coverage. She even earned one of his nicknames: "Little Katy."
