Trump Campaign On Assaulted Breitbart Reporter Gal: Who, Us?
I don't know, I guess she could maybe be half-black?
The Trump campaign has gotten so crazy, sometimes they assault people who aren't even black! Take this nice young Breitbart reporter gal -- she's white, even! (And cute!) And she says Trump's campaign manager came up behind her, grabbed her by the arm and attempted to throw her to the ground. Maybe, since she was asking about Affirmative Action, he just assumed she was a young black lady. So you could see how that would be fair.
Scratch that. You could see how it would be usual. (And we didn't even write about the poised young black woman who floated serenely through the angry, male -- and military -- crowd as it took turns shoving her like a super racist game of Blind Man's Bluff. Do click through to look at her beautiful face and be proud of her.)
Of course, it's usual for the Trump campaign to beat on reporters too. Tell us about where Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski bad-touched you, Breitbart reporter gal Michelle Fields:
When [Trump] approached me, I asked him about his view on an aspect of affirmative action.
Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.
The Washington Post’s Ben Terris immediately remarked that it was Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who aggressively tried to pull me to the ground. I quickly turned around and saw Lewandowski and Trump exiting the building together. No apology. No explanation for why he did this.
But nuh uh, says the Trump campaign! How could Fields and some dude from the Washington Post know it was Trump's campaign manager when they have never even met him before just because they are covering the Trump campaign? And how could it be true that Lewandoski had left finger-shaped bruises on Fields's arm when she wrote about it instead of quietly going to the campaign to make them say sorry in private, which is the law for what happens when you are allegedly assaulted by a Trump campaign manager?
See, Michelle Fields? You should have gone to them, especially since nobody else (except the Washington post guy) saw it? Like so:
"The accusation, which has only been made in the media and never addressed directly with the campaign, is entirely false," Trump campaign press secretary Hope Hicks said in a statement. "As one of dozens of individuals present as Mr. Trump exited the press conference I did not witness any encounter. In addition to our staff, which had no knowledge of said situation, not a single camera or reporter of more than 100 in attendance captured the alleged incident."
(Except the Washington Post guy.)
Oh, also Trump spox Hope Hicks points out Michelle Fields "claimed" to have been hit by a New York City cop with a baton, and since when has the NYPD ever hit anyone, anywhere, and who would libel them so???
Hope Hicks will leave it to others to call Michelle Fields a total liar, but as you can see from the tweet above, she is a total liar, and she probably cries rape about 50 times a day too, and she is definitely bleeding out of her wherevers. (Actually, she's just bleeding under her skin. From where Corey Lewandowski allegedly grabbed her hard enough to leave bruises.)
And now you know why we don't go to Trump rallies, even though we're not black either.
