‘There's something happening. They're not reporting it. Katy—you are not reporting it, Katy but there's something happening, Katy. There's something happening, Katy."

After this incident, she got much support from her family and well-wisher. She revealed 2016 as "crazy year with Trump". She said in an interview that, ‘The idea that the media is not reporting on the Trump crowds is "just factually incorrect. Her statement over Donald Trump was seen by more than 2 million people on YouTube.

Katy said,

“Trump called me naïve, He told me I didn't know what I was talking about. He didn't like my topics, which were direct, or my tone, which was conversational.”

She is invited on Late nights with Seth Meyers, where she explains What It Was Like Covering Donald Trump's Campaign.
