Well, folks, Team Trump has finally responded to those allegations about campaign manager Corey Lewandowski manhandling Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.
And while this is about what we’ve come to expect from the Trump camp, that doesn’t make it any less appalling:

This is a clown statement, bro.
1st sentence in 2nd paragraph completely contradicts last sentence in the first. https://t.co/mXr9tTAxI5

Not to mention there were eyewitnesses:

"We leave it to others whether this part of a larger pattern" I admire the Trump team's commitment to typos https://t.co/1aDn3xFqPG

Their commitment to integrity and keeping their story straight, however, is apparently less solid.
So Corey Lewandowski told Breitbart he didn’t realize it was a Breitbart reporter he’d grabbed… but now Trump camp says nothing happened?

Something smells very rotten in Camp Trump.
I hope you all realize this probably means Corey Lewandoski is a clinical sociopath.

It's no wonder we've seen such violence from Trump's supporters and now the campaign itself. And no wonder the campaign excuses itself.

This is political malpractice – by denying that anything happened, you're guaranteeing it becomes a bigger story https://t.co/GXvHniNjCf

Time for a new Trump tagline?
Team Trump-"Come For The White Pride, Stay For The Violence Against 100 lb Women!"
