The Trump campaign’s efforts to pretend that Michelle Fields is nothing more than a giant lie designed to make Trump looked bad took a major hit yesterday, when the Jupiter Police Department charged Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with battery. The police department also released CCTV footage that clearly showed Lewandowski roughly grabbing Fields and jerking her backwards. This, coupled with eyewitness accounts, the bruises on Fields’ arm, audio, and video, made it fairly obvious, and police arrested Lewandowski. Any decent presidential candidate and human being would, at this point, fire Lewandowski. But this is Trump we’re talking about, the guy with authoritarian leanings who openly admires dictators and despots. He probably gave Lewandowski a raise, and the Trump campaign quickly put out a statement saying that he would not be fired.
Now, Trump is making this entire saga even more ridiculous. Lewandowski was right to grab Fields the way he did, because Michelle Fields could have been a super-secret assassin, on a mission to kill Donald Trump… with her pen!
