MSNBC reporter Katy Tur was reporting from Friday morning’s event at the Trump International Hotel when the stage collapsed behind her.
“And the stage is falling apart behind us,” Tur said as figures scrambled in the background and men shouted, “Whoa!”
“If you can see this,” she said, turning to watch the black stage draperies billow and fall. She then resumed her commentary.

No one was reportedly injured in the collapse, which took place after Republican presidential nominee gave a very brief statement to the press affirming that Pres. Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen.
Many in the media were disgusted with the fact that Trump promoted Friday’s appearance for hours only to give a truncated statement and plug his new hotel.

During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
