8:35 am
regenerated. but you're back. and the bond between you is as strong as ever. >> yes. i think for an action film, sounding like the great veteran of action movies. for it to work, it has to have heart. when you watch people fight, you have to root for someone. >> taron, you are rather new to the seem. he's coming back, colin firth, i'm not sure. but taron, for sure. you were right out of drama school. >> it's been crazy. that being my first film. and to have the validation of coming back because people want another one, and then we have a few little-known actors to join us in this movie, as well. >> good segue. who is in this? >> we have a nice supporti inin cast. >> jeff bridges.

here. she chronicles the campaign in her book, "unbelievable." katie, good morning. it's good to see you. the title says it all. "unbelievable." as time has passed since election day, is your view of the campaign the same? or has it evolved a little bit? >> it is still unbelievable, every day. when i went back and wrote the book and reviewed the diary notes i took and a lot of the reporting i did, i couldn't believe i experienced what i did. there were memories that i went back and i didn't think happened. and i found a clip of it on television. >> you were in the thick of it. i think it's important to remember that you didn't have a ton of experience. >> no. >> following politics or covering politics before that. do you think that impacted the way you covered the campaign? >> i think that benefits it greatly.
8:42 am
donald trump is an outsider candidate. and everybody in washington counted him out immediately. the headlines were so severe. donald trump is running for president and it's going to be hilarious. because i didn't have preconceived notions. because i wasn't living in the bubble of washington, not so say anything negative about washington, but i felt i was able to assess his support and what he was enjoying more easily. >> there were moments in the campaign when you found himself in the news, as well, as part of the story. i want to play two clips. these are comments that donald trump made about you. i'll put them together and we'll talk about them on the other side. >> she's back there. little katie. she's back there. what a lie it was -- third-rate reporter. remember that. third-rate. >> katie tur, what happened? i saw her back there. gave her a big kiss.
8:43 am
she was fantastic. >> okay. >> how did you deal with the very different versions of donald trump, when it came to his attitude towards you? >> it was like a rollercoaster. you had to put it aside and continue doing your job. that's why i saw so many different mood swings with him. at first, he was very charming. when he realized his charm wasn't going to change my reporter, he would go on the k atta attack. but he switched back and forth throughout the entire campaign. what i did every day, and you saw this, was go out and try to honestly report on what was happening and hold him accountable for the things he said. >> you said you kept a diary. i would love to hear the entry on the day he called you little katie tur. >> that's in the book. you can read what it felt like in that moment. it was jarring. it was scary. and one of those feelings in a i don't think i'll be able to
8:44 am
shake. >> i was at a few of the rallies where he would target the press. and while he didn't mention me by name, but i remember the entire room turning around and looking at the pressu pool. it was -- >> we had to have armed security. i think everyone but fox and cbs. the crowd would all -- they would turn on us. and they would yell. and he riled them up to do that. and i'm not saying his supporters were violent people. the concern was what if there's one person in that crowd who might take this too seriously? who might feel like this is not just a show or part of the act and take it further. >> another campaign coming up, faster than we would like to admit. would you be part of that, as well? >> absolutely. i hope that nbc says they want me to do it. i would love it. >> an amazing account.
