Jamie Weinstein, senior editor of the Daily Caller, tweeted Tuesday night that a “thug” at Donald Trump’s press conference tried to pull Michelle Fields of Breitbart.com and Fox News’ “Cashin’ In” to the ground. Further, he alleged that Trump “always surrounds himself with thugs.”
Recently, a photographer for TIME said multiple videos show a Secret Service agent slamming him to the ground at a Donald Trump rally.
Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski forcibly yanked Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields out of the way after his press conference in Florida on Tuesday night.
Fields was attempting to ask Trump a question as he exited the press conference. Secret Service was starting to clear a path, when Fields was forcibly grabbed on her arm by Lewandowski, moving her out of the way and nearly bringing her down to the ground, a source who witnessed the situation told POLITICO.
Fields hasn’t mentioned the alleged incident on her Twitter account, nor has Lewandowski, nor has Donald Trump — which doesn’t prove anything.
