I’m almost at a loss for words with this one, people. Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, has been charged over the whole arm-grabbing thing. It strikes me as utterly ridiculous, but that’s the sad state of affairs we’re living with.

Here’s the report

 

Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump campaign manager, was charged this morning with misdemeanor battery after allegations of forcefully grabbing a reporter at a Jupiter news conference, town police confirmed this morning.

Following a March 8 conference at Trump National Golf Club, Michelle Fields, a 28-year-old reporter formerly with the online Breitbart News Network, said she was grabbed on the arm by Lewandowski, 41, after she asked Trump a question about affirmative action.

Washington Post reporter Ben Terris wrote that he witnessed the battery.

Jupiter police later said they were looking into the incident after Fields filed a report, although investigators had not named Lewandowski.

Lewandowski turned himself in to Jupiter police just after 8 a.m., according to a police report.

We’ve all seen the multiple videos by now. Anyone with any sense can see that no assault took place. Lewandowski just moved Fields out of the way, since she was obstructing Trump’s exit. I don’t see how this could ever be any sort of crime.

Here’s the new video the police have released in order to justify this prosecution…

I still don’t see any kind of assault. This whole thing is pathetic. The way members of the Republican establishment are reacting to this is also about as lame as you can get. Retweeting SJW media and acting like some activist with Listen & Believe on the brain? Wow. I would be stunned, but these people long ago showed that they don’t care how Trump gets knocked off course, so long as it happens.

 

UPDATE: The Trump campaign has responded…

 

UPDATE II: Arrest report text…

  1. They are charging Corey with battery, not assault, and the definition of battery is so loose that… well, let’s just say a Jury will be who decides this. I think it’s a really horseshit charge that will waste law enforcement’s time, but of course a disingenuous person would bring a disingenuous charge.

  2. This woman is trying to stretch her 15 min of fame for all it’s worth. I hope he sues the ever living shit out of her for her butthurt harassment campaign against him.

    1. I see the update. He got charged with simple battery? Which is…………….

      Touching someone against their will, presumably in any place except sexual areas because they probably carry their own charge. Holy shit, everybody. We’re all guilty of simple battery x 1000 at the very fucking least. I should be life in prison by now. Welcome to 2016. Enjoy your stay, motherfuckers!

  3. What the fuck? Either Fields has super delicate skin or Lewandowski has a super powerful grip to cause some bruises like that. he didn’t even really grab her back that hard.

  4. he may be innocent but the fix is in

    Exclusive Sandman footage of the GOP elite sponsored jury

  5. There comes a point when you need to think a bit. This vid here has a closer view and a slow down,,,,is there a vicious assault? No, she was not beaten within an inch of her life,,,if you and your girl or mom were walking down a street and some dude yanked her back and behind him and his buddy so they could waltz on through, are you all seriously going to tell me you wouldnt knock the shit out of him? If you watch this and tell me that yeah, youd take this from a stranger pulling this move on yer sis or mom or girlfriend or wife, then you’re either so pussy that you dont deserve to be called a man or so politicized that logic is now beyond you. Which is it? I despise listen and believe as much as anyone. But sometimes an asshole is an asshole, no matter how sports teamy you feel about them. Be for Trump, fine. Be angry that are trying to undermine his delegate count after elections by their arcane rules. Be pissed that his own party is trying to steal his victories. But an asshole is still an asshole and any dude that yanks any woman because of imagined self-importance is an asshole. http://youtu.be/U11NTzEpjlg

    1. You know except for the security people at concerts or other crowded venues when you go where you’re not supposed to like she did.

      1. Bullshit. They werent in a secured area it was on the open floor. The apologist nature of Trump fans through this whole event is a series of backpedals. First it didnt happen he dindu nuffin, now its he’s suddenly a secret service agent or security gaurd, Bullshit. He’s a fucking campaign manager trying to get him away from being questioned, pure and fucking simple. Nothing more. Do a little experiment with me. Go rewatch the vid I posted and instead, imagine its footage is instead from E3. Imagine Trump is Sarkeesian, the female reporter is Co-host Nora and that Lewindowski is Jonathan McIntosh doing this bullshit move. You and me both would be pissed and calling him out,,,FOR THE EXACT SAME THING…dont fucking lie and say you wouldnt. He fucked up. And when the cops reviewed it and arrested McIntosh, do you think Ralph’s article would look llike this one? No, he would rightly be celebrating as would all of us. Its why so many ggrs of many political stripes came together to begin with. The SJW cancer repulsed all, even democrats and traditional liberals and consetvatives all alike. But this event is why party politics and partisanship blinds people.,,,facts don’t matter because “muh confirmation bias”,,,like I said above, Trump has bigger problems than an asshole manager,,,but that is all this guy is,,,not a security gaurd, not a secret service agent, just an asshole manager who managed to fuck up…

        1. Maybe look to the new video Ralph posted where she’s getting around security? Yeah, I’ll accept your apology now. You don’t ignore security and try to get around them. I was more jostled at a movie premiere trying to get a look at stars, if that’s a terribly injury to you, you’re just a pussy.

          1. Then she should be charged with trespassing by him and Trump as a counter measure, but that doesnt promote Corey to security gaurd. He should have pointed her out to a secret service agent, who shouldve been on her anyway if they viewed her as a threat. And He still is just an asshole manager trying to protect his special snowflake from tough questions. If you can concede this, then I’ll concede she is a tresspasser. But as I stated, no, the severity of the injury doesnt enter it. I granted it wasnt a severe battering in my initial post. So did the Florida cops in assigning misdemeanor battery, which you could be charged with just for standing in front of someone and tapping them on the chest or just simply spitting on them. Assault can be legally defined as lightly as someone saying fuck you. Battery is unwanted, unconsented contact. Of any type. So I’ll concede misdemeanor tresspassing for her. And misdemeanor battery for him. And I notice you had zero to say about my point on if this was a vid from E3 with Sark, McIntosh and Nora. Since I addressed your points honestly here, please address that point from my comment before this. I await you to absolve FullMcIntosh of sin as vigorously as you do this stuffed suit douche of Trumps.

          2. Again, a lying whole with multiple false charges. I really don’t care about the outcome of this, except to predict she’ll be embarrassed again. And I love how you people are so certain of my love for Trump, it’s laughable, maybe you need to get on Breitbart with your like minded binary worldview fools. I personally don’t care who wins, I just hope it’s Trump for the lulz.

          3. You have missed what my mind is like by a mile. And still havent honestly answered my E3 challenge. I accept your surrender to that as you know you cant lie about the obvious. As for lulz, they’ll come in Cleveland,,,the ciry is spending 50 million bucks on riot gear, riot fencing and extra cops for the Republican National Convention,,,THAT’S gonna be hilarious,,,

          4. ,,,and now I have to rescind the tresspass charge,,,all i saw of your video “evidence” was a guy claiming to have heard an agent say they warned her twice about touching Trump,,,nothing sbout ntering a restricted area,,,NO SOUP FOR YOU,,,and if they did issue those warnings, why didnt THEY, not Corey grab her? He literally reach across an agent to yank her away because brave Sir Donald cant be questioned,,,keep on listening and believing your very special Trumpkeesian,,,

  6. Given that we have video evidence that this didn’t happen, I see this as a dirty trick to distract Trump’s campaign manager from his true purpose and thus damage Trump.

  7. This just added to the mountain of evidence only further solidifies Trump’s sinister intentions. That 80 year old backwoods racist who sucker punched a black protestor. The black Trump supporter who was immediately arrested after kicking the shit out of a protestor whose partner was wearing a KKK mask and giving the hitler salute. Trump treating women like how he treats the men he has contempt for, but it’s still worse because women are fragile glass creatures made out of snow. Now this?!! This man is running his campaign like a fascist. The only reasonable comparisons are Hitler, or Satan, or General Idi Amin.

    We need more woman protecting heroes for minorities like Thomas DiMassimo to peacefully run up to Trump’s face and, what he was likely intending to do, have a constructive conversation about how Trump is wrong for inciting heinous acts of violence against non-whites.

    We need more articles and biased, but correct, media telling anyone who isn’t a poor red neck living in Alabama that Trump will take away their human rights, their daughters, and possibly their lives. We need to insert as much fear as possible so more sound minded, informed citizens, like Thomas, do what they can to stop Trump at any cost before he incurs the inevitable sexist and racist apocalypse that will destroy the world.

  8. Can we take a moment to admire the Trump team’s response?
    They’re standing by their people, 100%,screw all the backlash or the drama or the politics. No needless apologies or excuses, they believe him to be innocent.

    That’s cool.

  9. It doesn’t matter if he’s exonerated by the courts. This was done so that the impression that Trump’s closest adviser on the campaign is a criminal and an abuser of women, complete with an arrest record they can trot out to bolster the character assassination, will be carried with him for the remainder of the election cycle. All part of the campaign to quash libertarian ideals in American politics.

  10. I’ll be very surprised if there’s ever a trial, the first thing his lawyer will do is move for a dismissal and unless the judge has a massive hate boner for Trump he will probably dismiss this.

  11. Trump needs to charge her for assault. It’s a double-bind on the prosecutor, who it turns out is a Clinton aid.

    He can either charge her as well, making this a wash, or enforce a double standard, effectively martyring Corey and Trump.
