Fox News’s Kat Timpf says she was attacked during a political event by a man who sprayed her with water.
Timpf, who co-hosts Fox News Specialists, detailed the shocking incident on Twitter.
The 28-year-old libertarian said she was attending an event honoring her friend, Brooklyn Borough President Hope Ben Kissel, at Union Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Monday night when she was approached by the strange man.
She was supposed to speak out on criminal justice reform at the event, but before she had a chance to step on the podium, the stranger threw a 1.5 liter water bottle at her.
When she turned to look at the man, Timpf said he continued to splash more water “right on my face” before leaving the facility.
“I am shocked, I am stunned. I’m obviously upset, ”recalls Timpf.
Timpf says she was so taken aback by what happened that she ended up not speaking the way she expected.
She went on to say that she had “had it” with the “cruel and disgusting climate” that “we are in now”.
” This is what we do ? Verbal abuse on Twitter is not enough? I got it. I am a real human person. I have a soul, a family, I have feelings.

“I have opinions, which some people may disagree with, but I am a human being. I am able to recognize that the people I disagree with have souls and families and are humans, why are there so many people who see unable to see the world this way? ‘ she asks.
Because she’s a libertarian, Timpf says she receives “hatred from people on all sides of the aisle” and still doesn’t know why this particular man targeted her.
“I still don’t know what the madman’s problem was with me. If he was trying to change my mind about something by throwing his water over my head, the least he could have done was express what he had a problem with before or after assaulting me. She writes.
After detailing the incident on Twitter, several reporters responded with kind words, including fellow Fox News host Geraldo Rivera and CNN’s Jake Tapper (above)
However, Timpf says she isn’t convinced it has to do with just one problem.
“I realized that probably wasn’t even about it. These are no longer specific issues. It’s either about blindly supporting or blindly hating some people and for some reason this guy has decided that I’m someone he hates, “she said.
It’s disgusting, I’m disgusted. And everyone has to do better than this childish b ******* because for my part, I had it with insane hostility. It’s not activism, it’s not for anything. It is only sickness and cruelty.

It is not activism, it is not in favor of anything. It is only sickness and cruelty. I’ve had it with people who behave like animals. Come together and grow.
