New Low: Trump Campaign Manager Roughs Up a Female Reporter

New Low: Trump Campaign Manager Roughs Up a Female Reporter

Members of the media are calling him a "thug."

Published March 9, 2016

Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has been labeled a “thug” by Daily Caller editor Jamie Weinstein after he forcibly grabbed Weinstein's girlfriend, reporter Michelle Fields, after she asked a tough question. The choice of words is interesting, considering "thug" is probably how many of Trump's supporters would describe young Black men.

Breitbart, the outlet Fields writes for, confirmed the story in a statement, “It’s obviously unacceptable that someone crossed a line and made physical contact with our reporter. What Michelle told us directly is that someone ‘grabbed her arm’…Ben Terris of the Washington Post told her that it was Corey Lewandowski. If that’s the case, Corey owes Michelle an immediate apology.”

Speaking of "thugs," seems like an apt term for Trump supporters who attacked a young Black woman during a rally in Virginia. Catch up on the recent violence at Trump rallies with BET Breaks:
