Trump Sides With Campaign Manager Charged With Battery Of Female Reporter Even After Video Of Assault Is Released (VIDEO)

The Trump Scandal Du Jour: Trump's Campaign Manager Cory Lewandowski Charged With Battery Of Female Reporter

On tap today we find that Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was arrested following an incident in which he “allegedly” grabbed a conservative reporter, Michelle Fields, at a campaign event earlier this month.

Lewandowski turned himself in to police in Jupiter, Florida, where he was charged with misdemeanor battery.

The whole ugly affair started on March 8th when Fields’s boyfriend Jamie Weinstein tweets that the former reporter Michelle Fields was manhandled by Lewandowski…

Later Fields came out and stated for the record that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski had indeed grabbed her when she tried to ask Trump a question. The accusation was quickly backed up by the Washington Post reporter Ben Terris.

Upon getting wind of the allegations both Trump and Lewandowski repeatedly denied that the campaign manager grabbed Fields and began a whisper campaign to discredit her including allegations that she made up sexual harassment charges against (asshole) Allen West...

After Fields heard about the denials and the nauseating tweet she stuck by her story her story and posted a picture of bruises on her arm as a result of the incident...

After the bruise tweet surfaced Lewandowski, of course, tweeted that Fields was “delusional” and that he had never even met her…

This set in motion a slash and burn campaign by Trump and associates in an attempt to discredit Fields. Trump started by tweeting out a portion of Fields’ statement immediately after the incident occurred, claiming she changed her story once she found out there was video.

Then Trump’s campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, suggested Fields was not believable because she had reported a previous incident of police abuse.

Next, Lewandowski called Fields “an attention seeker” while Trump piled on, saying “perhaps she made the story up. I think that’s what happened.” 

Then somebody threw a monkey into the wrench. A fly in the ointment. A booby in the hatch! Ahh yes, the video.

Footage was released from Trump's own cameras in which it clearly shows Lewandowski roughly grabbing Michelle Fields.

Here is that video...


Immediately the slimy Trump reversed his stance and - get this - started painting himself as the victim by saying he had interacted with the reporter but claimed she had tried to attack him (!!!!) saying...

She was grabbing me. [Am I] supposed to file charges against her?

He then shot out this pathetic tweet...

Trump then said Lewandowski was protecting him and “trying to get her off of me.

His bizarre defense culminated in a tweet suggesting that Fields was trying to harm him with the pen she was carrying in her hand...

Now for the finale in this over the top story.

Trump then invited reporters aboard his plane in Wisconsin to discuss the matter and said in referrence to bruises that Fields photographed after Lewandowski grabbed her...

I looked at the tape, there’s not even a change of expression on her face. Then I looked at Internet, and you take a look at the tweets, and people are saying, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me.’
“I don’t know if there were bruises from that, who says there were bruises from that? How do you know those bruises weren’t there before? I don’t know what the police said. How do you know those bruises weren’t there before? I’m not a lawyer, but she said she had a bruise on her arm. To me, if you’re going to get squeezed, wouldn’t you think that she would’ve yelled out a scream or something if she has bruises on her arm?
You say ‘bruises on her arm,’ how did they get there? Who put them there? I don’t know that he put them there,

Trump then finished by implying that fields could not have been hurt by Lewandowski because she didn't scream during the assault. The video, as you may have noticed, has no sound.

Watch the airplane news conference here...

Now all that's left to do is sit back and see how much higher this pushes Trump's poll numbers!
