Ann Coulter: Trump “is mental”

Ann Coulter: Trump “is mental”

And that was before today!

Had the video below bookmarked; wasn’t sure what to do with it. But *somehow* right now seems to be a good time to post it.

Both because I’ve been off the grid and don’t have anything else to write about, and because of the fury from Trump world over the charge against Corey Lewandowski for battery on Michelle Fields.

Scrolling through Twitter, clearly the world has gone mad.

It started as a defense that Lewandowski never touched Fields, she made it up, and she’s a publicity hound.

Corey Lewandowski Tweet Never Touched You

Bill Mitchell Tweet Michelle Fields a Nut

Ann Coulter Tweet Michelle Fields Duke Lacrosse

Then surveillance video surfaced with the police charge and appears to show Lewandowski reaching for and pulling Fields:

Corey Lewandowski Michelle Fields Surveillance  Video 1

Corey Lewandowski Michelle Fields Surveillance  Video 2

Corey Lewandowski Michelle Fields Surveillance  Video 3

Now the defense has morphed into the claim that Fields deserved to be grabbed because she was a threat to Trump and maybe even battered him. All as I predicted weeks ago:

Trump has discovered that maybe HE was touched (even though the surveillance video doesn’t show that), and is threatening to file charges against Fields.

Ann Coulter, possibly Donald Trump’s biggest media attack dog, was on a show the other day hosted by Milo Yiannopoulos of, and she referred to Trump as follows: “Our candidate is mental”

The Washington Examiner reports:

Defending billionaire businessman Donald Trump is like constantly having to bail a teenage son from prison, author and political commentator Ann Coulter groused in a recent radio interview.

“I’m a little testy with our man right now. Our candidate is mental! Do you realize our candidate is mental?” Coulter said jokingly during a taping of an episode of the “Milo Yiannopoulos Show,” which is scheduled to air in full this weekend. “It’s like constantly having to bail out your 16-year-old son from prison.” …

For Coulter, Trump’s attacks on Cruz’s wife may have crossed a line, and she wished he, “would be a teensy bit less low-brow.”

“This is the worst thing that he has done,” she said as her host laughed. “Everything else I could probably defend.”

Ann Coulter throws verbal molotov cocktails for no other purpose than to set people off. All she does is make her purported allies look bad.

    She’s getting old and her books aren’t selling like they once did. Just like the faux-conservative talk radio hosts, she saw a chance to boost her income by dividing Republicans.

    Not one of them gave a damn about the costs. Some like Rush & Levin probably thought they could control the lynch mobs they created, but that’s no excuse. Their backtracking comes too little, too late.

    They have fostered and nurtured the worst elements in American society and given them a mainstream platform. Let us not forget this.

Bear in mind this is Ann “I don’t care if he performs abortions in the WH” Coulter.

    SeanInLI in reply to Ragspierre. | March 29, 2016 at 8:29 pm

    Just goes to show that you do not “get” Ann at all.

      quiksilverz24 in reply to SeanInLI. | March 30, 2016 at 1:04 am

      A few years ago, I might have agreed with you. Now days, AC is concerned with one thing and one thing only: AC. She wants to sell books and get on TV as much as possible. With current events, she should have a permanent place on Bill Maher’s show.

        buckeyeminuteman in reply to quiksilverz24. | March 30, 2016 at 7:45 am

        A few years ago Pauly Shore (if you’re less than 30 you’re probably saying “who”) made a movie called “Pauly Shore is Dead” just to boost his own publicity to get back into the media again. I’m wondering how much longer until AC does the same thing.

I understand that Milo calls Der Donald “Daddy”.

By T-rump sucking standards applied to Amanda Carpenter, that is guaranteed evidence that Milo and Der Donald are having hot steamy jungle love.

Secret service reportedly has stated that they warned Michelle Fields, twice, to back off. If so, the pull on her arm was privileged.

    Ragspierre in reply to Wisewerds. | March 29, 2016 at 7:39 pm

    I’ll believe that when a Secret Service spokesman tells us that.

    Not a T-rump sucker.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Wisewerds. | March 29, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    It’s nothing but a flimsy claim from an experienced smear merchant, drunk, and convict who works for hump-loving Tucker Carlson.

    There’s not a scintilla of evidence supplied directly by LE or the SS authenticating it – no statements, video or audio interviews, nothing, zip, zilch, nada.

    If it’s true, the authorities will pursue it and she’ll be held to answer because the hump would never let it go. So we’ll see. Don’t hold your breath.

      Even if it’s true what could they pursue, and how could she be held to answer? What authority do they have to tell anyone what to do?

        sequester in reply to Milhouse. | March 30, 2016 at 5:43 am

        Seriously??? There are a host of charges from disobeying lawful orders of a law enforcement officer, trespass, assault, harassment ….

        What State are you licensed to practice law in?

    Sanddog in reply to Wisewerds. | March 29, 2016 at 11:49 pm

    Yeah, the Daily Mail reports they spoke to someone on his detail that confirmed she was told to back off. Even if that’s true. his detail should have pushed her back, not Lewandowski.

    Milhouse in reply to Wisewerds. | March 30, 2016 at 1:03 am

    There is no such thing as a “privileged” pull on the arm. It doesn’t matter who told her what; nothing she could possibly have been told by anyone could turn an assault into not an assault.

    Oh, and the Secret Service does not have the authority to order people around. If someone told her to “back off”, it was a suggestion, not an order, and she was free to ignore it.

      Sanddog in reply to Milhouse. | March 30, 2016 at 1:34 am

      Of course they have the authority. Hell, a private security guard has the authority. Disregard them at your own peril.

      Estragon in reply to Milhouse. | March 30, 2016 at 6:24 am

      When the Secret Service wants someone to back off, they leave absolutely no doubt about it – the person & everyone around immediately understands.

      The Daily Mail is BS. The Secret Service details NEVER talk to the press themselves. It’s grounds for dismissal.

    Julian in reply to Wisewerds. | March 30, 2016 at 6:30 am

    Fox News showed Secret Service Agents grabbing Fields arms. Her arm bruises could have come from that. (Greta segment) To move her away from Trump. Corey according to the tapes may not have ever touched her. As far as remembering the incident, he is winding his way through a crowd passing hundreds of people, you get bumped in a crowd, he probably didn’t give Fields a second thought.
    I can’t stand Trump, but this game of personal destruction, because you are from a different party or support a different candidate is really terrible. People want Lewandowski’s life ruined over nothing, is really sad.

      Ragspierre in reply to Julian. | March 30, 2016 at 8:26 am

      Let’s just step back here a second.

      WHO is doing the “personal destruction” here? I’d say it was Der Donald, the guy with the power, money, and megawatt megaphone who made it his business to slime the young lady. Not anyone else.

      As noted by several commenters here, ALL CL had to do was issue an apology to the young lady…one that nobody would even have had to hear but her, and the whole deal goes away. No muss, no fuss. THAT is how you protect your candidate, BTW. You screen him from being the hypersensitive school girl he is, and you never let your own stupid get near him by fanning the flames. Which, of course, is EXACTLY what happened here.

      And now the fool is charged with a MINOR crime, but the whole deal is a comedy of errors that he pretty much scripted for himself. “I’ll have the best people…the BEST!” Yeah, right.

In Trump’s defense (oh, how I hate writing those words), if a woman holding something in her hand like that were to approach the POTUS in the same fashion, getting grabbed by the arm would be the least of her worries.

    SeanInLI in reply to georgfelis. | March 29, 2016 at 7:58 pm

    She was a credentialed reporter who had been around the campaign a while by that point. She was a known quantity, and if the SS screwed up by letting The Donald roam too far afield alone, it is not the privilege of a campaign staffer to make that call.

    That being said, what Lewandowski did was minor, and putting distance between his client and the reporter was the right thing to do. But he was a real dick about it, then lied about what he did, then the campaign lied, then smeared the reporter as all sorts of nasty things.

    That is the problem. When they could have just gone the right thing and ended it, they opted to go full d-bag as an organization. Own-goal, unforced error, call it what you will, but it is not something that fundamentally good and forthright people would have gotten themselves so deep into.

      RodFC in reply to SeanInLI. | March 29, 2016 at 9:58 pm

      And we all know that “credentialed reporters” never try to assassinate someone like they do all the time in the movies. Just like terrorists never blow up skyscrapers.

      As for CL, over the course of the campaign he has probably done something similar many times. He probably doesn’t remember it.

        SeanInLI in reply to RodFC. | March 30, 2016 at 8:37 am

        Yes,CL and the other campaign worker with the buzz cut who shielded the view of the pull from the other side, have clearly coordinated the manoever and done this numerous times. And you do not think that is sleazy? And then to lie about it and have the campaign, as a whole SMEAR this person just for calling them on it?

        You do not see anything sleazy and unscrupulous about trying to destroy a person’s reputation intentionally and falsely? Sadly, Trump supporters really think that the end justifies just about any means.

        And I do mean: SADLY. I gave money to his campaign not long after he threw his hat in the ring. But the new car smell wore off long ago, and his lack of character has made itself too obvious too many times since.

      CloseTheFed in reply to SeanInLI. | March 29, 2016 at 10:11 pm

      Dear SeanInLI:

      I agree what Lewandowski did was minor. I agree he shouldn’t have smeared her.

      But more than anything, I want the wall built, and I want someone to take muslim terrorism SERIOUSLY. So I will tolerate alot.

      I will say, reflecting on our times while driving home tonight, I don’t believe a SINGLE presidential candidate from our founding until 1960 could have survived the 24/7 scrutiny and the constant cell phone video we have now. No one can be that unoffensive and bland that constantly. If so, they’ve had a lobotomy and aren’t fit for office.

        SeanInLI in reply to CloseTheFed. | March 30, 2016 at 8:28 am

        I appreciate a lot of what Trump says, especially that he, like Alan West, calls ISLAM the problem. No “radical” tag. It is the first step needed to fight Islam is to stop with the adjectives like “radical”. Islam is the cancer of mankind, and he sees it, and most importantly calls it straight.

        But I see far too many qualities I associate with the left with Team Trump. The lying and smearing of proven conservatives such as Cruz and Carson (and I know Carson endorsed him after quitting, but that’s a different sad story), readily running with any left wing smear story for his gain, and to actually use the name ” Lying Ted” assures me he is not interested in conservatism, but only in Donald Trump.

        I am in it, and have been in it, for the movement and values. And while Cruz is not perfect, he does not lie so easily and often, and is a proven conservative. Who knows what Trump really is.

      Sanddog in reply to SeanInLI. | March 29, 2016 at 11:49 pm

      She’s a citizen practicing journalism. No less inclined to be a nutcase than any other person in that room.

So we now see that the case is exactly what I said it was two weeks ago when I explained why Lewandowsky did nothing wrong in being just about as mildly physically defensive as it is possible to be with a person who is aggressively pursuing his candidate as they try to leave a venue. My earlier comment, posted for the brain-dead Trump-haters at National Review:

Trumpians are sick of people making mountains out of molehills to attack Trump. Oooh, he said he would do worse than water board (which is nothing more than psychological pressure). No one who can’t do a lot worse than waterboard should ever be president, but idiots left AND RIGHT immediately scream “war crimes.” Yeah? Go to hell, morons.

And sorry, but this looks like another molehill, especially as concerns Trump. The very fact that you want to read so much into Lewandowski’s questionable decision to call a nothing a nothing–and it absolutely is a nothing when someone protective of a candidate reacts with mild physicality to someone he isn’t sure who coming up on the side of his protectee (nobody has a right to get within 2 feet of Trump)–looks like just another pumped-up excuse to attack Trump.

Here you are pursuing a “the cover-up is worse than the crime” approach to this molehill, which means you are trying to make a mountain out of a pimple on the molehill’s ass, and Trumpians, who do not think Trump is an evil fascist but see him as a great defender of Liberty (a judgment on which they are far more perceptive than you) are rightly having none of it.

Poor Michelle didn’t get her apology. How about recognizing that when you are pursuing within arm’s reach of a candidate it isn’t all about you? If she is going to demagogue about it, as if it is a horrifying thing that someone would grab her arm and stop her pursuit, it is reasonable for Lewandowski’s to be ticked at her.

That doesn’t excuse the cover-up, but it does show it to be a pimple on a molehill’s ass. And this is Lewandowski’s ass, not Trump’s. But you are going to try to make a huge deal about it FOR TRUMP if he doesn’t follow you in making a mountain out of this pimple on Lewandowski’s ass. I’m not a Trumpian, but they are right on this. National Review SHOULD go to hell.

Now Professor Jacobsen is following the same line as NR two weeks ago, that the cover-up is worse than what turns out not to have been a crime. We learn that Fields was not just aggressively pursuing Trump at arm’s length but was in contact with his arm to the point where the contact was drawing a sharp look down from Trump himself, and Lewandowski is not supposed to grab her? Professor Jacobsen, if this is your reaction to seeing what actually happened, you are insane. You have Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I am for Cruz, who I think is 100-times better than Trump, but again and again I find myself compelled to condemn the numerous absolutely disgusting and unprincipled attacks on Trump from a whole host of people on the conservative side who I otherwise respect. What the hell has gone wrong with you people?

    janitor in reply to AlecRawls. | March 29, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    Whatever the professor is doing — I submit that it is propagandizing, creating headlines for the search engines, and using “Trump” to drive cheap traffic on the website, compare if we were to see the same approach used on this website in the multiple self-defense articles dealing with circumstances in which someone has ended up dead, or in the numerous issues that have involved false rape charges in colleges.

    This shows up the rabid Cruz supporters to be nothing but hypocrites.

    I suspect that the professor does not care about the credibility of this blog any more and/or perhaps thinks that there is a higher purpose to be served in pushing Cruz.

    I was a Cruz supporter until a few months after Trump entered this race. The frankly shocking behavior and demented language and name-calling by so many Cruz supporters — most of whom formerly were persons whose opinions I respected and took to heart, and who I thought were objective — and their screeching personal insults of supporters, as well as their misrepresentations of Trump himself, have totally turned me off Cruz.

    I do not want people who are this mean and this hypocritical in charge almost as much as I do not want OWS, BLM, BDS et al. irrationals in charge. Okay, maybe that exaggerates a little, but suffice to say that I am turned off. It’s not winning me over, and I’m not the only one.

    The Supreme Court appointment indeed is important. If Trump is the next president, it won’t be a problem, because Trump understands and will take advice and counsel on this one matter from Cruz or Paul Clement or Newt Gingrich or someone else similarly knowledgeable, and we don’t actually need Cruz to be the president to accomplish this. (In fact a Cruz nomination will only exacerbate left-wing hysterics and the raising of diversionary issues in the general election.)

    CloseTheFed in reply to AlecRawls. | March 29, 2016 at 10:23 pm

    To AlecRawls:

    I agree with everything you said, except that the Professor is insane. I do think he prioritizes factors differently than you and I. To Janitor, I don’t think he’s trying to drive traffic to his site in that fashion. Trump’s the frontrunner; ignoring him would be odd.

    My priorities include building the wall, DEPORTING DEPORTING DEPORTING ALIENS, stopping the trade madness that causes American financial ruin, and other similar items.

    Trump gets it much better than Cruz, but I don’t find anyone “mental” except Ragspierre. I mean, really, his language and bitter tone are distasteful.


      Professor Jacobson is doing what he believes to be best for the country.

      He is a honorable man whom I have associated with as a blogger for almost 7 years. I know his history.

      Anyone disparaging his intentions is waaay off base.

      While GOP primaries are contentious in general, this is the first open seat primary in both his and my blogging experience.

      I would ask those looking to fault find with the Professor to keep my earnest words in mind.

      I will also say while the Professor and I find ourselves on opposite sides in this primary tussle, I respect him and he has shown respect to me, blogger to blogger.


If what Wisewords has heard is factual, bit of a game-changer. We’ll see how this all plays out. I have no dog in this hunt, but I’m running very low on popcorn.

All Trump and Lewandowski had to do was to say “sorry, Corey was concerned and unfortunately got carried away” or something along those lines at the beginning. That would have ended any serious discussion of it.

Lewandowski, however, has burned Trump by his sleazy behavior. Trump is loyal to his people, too local in this case, and went out on a limb for Lewandowski who clearly lied to Trump the day this all happened. Now that the cat is out of the bag, Lewandowski is just exploiting Trumps loyalty by not accepting responsibility.

Instead, Trump is forced to remain doing contortions and his supporters and surrogates smearing and lying, all the while undermining his campaign.

I think Trump would have been better served beginning his career as NYC Mayor or NY Governor, because he was not ready, temperament wise, for the rigors of a high profile political campaign.

Instead, he has been able to tear asunder a conservative base that, heretofore, showed few signs of fracture. I am talking the Trump vs Cruz base, not the Jeb RINO vs conservatives split that has been alive and well since 2008.

    janitor in reply to SeanInLI. | March 29, 2016 at 9:35 pm

    All she had to do, given that she was pushing herself in where she didn’t belong, had been told at least twice to back off, and was grabbing at Trump, was to not make it into an issue.

    Now we’re supporting the snowflake victimology whiners here?

      gmac124 in reply to janitor. | March 30, 2016 at 12:54 pm

      “had been told at least twice to back off”

      Another smear by the Trump campaign that will keep this story going. If they would quit doubling down on stupid this story would have never had legs.

This is why no one listens to Coulter anymore. First Christie, then Romney, then Trump.

Hey, maybe we should listen to her — and always choose someone she doesn’t like!

    SeanInLI in reply to Same Same. | March 29, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    Coulter sees her role as a Republican sophist, simply making the case for the GOP candidate that appears to be the “best”. She defends and explains away what she can, and does what she can to make that candidate’s case. If Cruz gets the GOP nomination, she will become a determined Cruz advocate. And if she did not believe that Cruz is not eligible due to the natural born citizen bit, I am sure she would be doing that now.

    She had preferred candidates early on, but she is the epitome of reason and practicality, not a “the guy I liked is out so I am burning it all down” lunatic. She does not necessarily agree with or personally believe what she puts out vis-à-vis a candidate she defends, but she does what a campaign needs.

    You may not like that, but Coulter has been a strict anti progressive from the get go, and does what it takes to make sure the left can do as little damage as possible. She is a conservative advocate, first and last, she has never been anyone’s “supporter”. She makes the practical case to elect the least progressive candidate. Always has, and I hope she always does.

Henry Hawkins | March 29, 2016 at 8:02 pm

As always, the lying cover-up (“I never touched you”) is worse than the covered up offense, which in the big picture was a nothing burger, literally a minor touch foul.

I thought it was only two-bit burglars who were ignorant of the prevalence of security cameras.


The way Trump reacts, it does look like Fields grabbed his arm.

She also seems to have embellished other events.

Also hear the DA is a Clinton activist.

Saw a video of Huma Abedin really committing a battery. No news there.

Overall, this is something that should be on ignore, but the state of the campaign is such that it’s wishful thinking.

Not totally OT.

Donald Trump was ambushed today by former Miss Wisconson 2005. She spilled the beans on two of Donald Trump’s companies and broke Donald Trump’s cool.

    Eskyman in reply to rotten. | March 31, 2016 at 12:53 am

    When I first read your comment I thought, “What’s this? More anti-Trump rubbish!” but then I watched the clip. It shows what a beautiful man Donald Trump is. I apologize for misreading your intent.

    A lady who is dying, the former Miss Wisconsin 2005, wanted to publicly thank The Donald for the kindness that he has shown her and her family.

    “…you have given me the greatest gifts of all – peace of mind, heart and soul. I have been writing letters to Jack so that he can read them when I am in heaven, explaining how you, your organization and the snowballing effect of support from people all around the world have forever changed our world. With this, I have explained to Jack that a great responsibility has been instilled in him to pay it forward just as you have done for us. Yours is a gift that will keep on giving. I am forever grateful.”

    Please watch this clip, the truth may set some of you free.

    Now it’s time for the TDS sufferers to laugh at this lovely woman and call her names. Don’t forget to denigrate everything Donald Trump stands for. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed!

The surveillance tape shows Trump reacting to Fields’ approach by sharply turning to look at her and clearly pulling away, presumably in response to the contact on his arm that he shows in his tweet. At that moment the Secret Service agent behind Trump reaches out to keep Fields away from Trump and it is only after this that Lewandowski reaches in and grabs her.

The video camera remains stationary so you can tell by the distances to the edge of the frame that Lewandowski did not pull Fields back, but merely stopped her from continuing to pursue Trump. He stops her pretty much dead in her tracks, but she seems to have pulled back, as they end up a couple feet further along the direction the whole group had originally been travelling, and she quickly resumes following Trump.

Henry Hawkins | March 29, 2016 at 10:07 pm

lol@Trump supporters going all Andrew Branca/Forensic Files on this.

Grabbing her arm is not the offense. Lying about it and attempting to savage her reputation – over nothing – is the illuminating event, to wit: the first impulse was to lie, lie, lie.

The DA is a Hillary supporter! LOL. And did that DA make Lewandowski lie about whether he’d touched her or had ever even met her?

Trumpbots defend the perimeter, but the wolf is in the kitchen.

    janitor in reply to Henry Hawkins. | March 29, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    If you recall (accurately), the denial came when she was saying that she was thrown to the ground and similar, and making herself a scoop story (not the first time).

    This also happened extremely briefly, in a pushing, crowd and was of no rational moment, after she pushed herself into the circle of Secret Service agents and twice was told to back off. And nothing happened that any reasonable person would have taken note of. This is not a “cover up” except for those who are determined to find a spin or angle that in some way somehow reflects on Trump and furthers the false narrative about “violence at Trump events”.

    Watch the video tape.

      Henry Hawkins in reply to janitor. | March 30, 2016 at 9:32 am

      What part of the bald-faced lie “I never touched you/I’ve never met you” confused you so?

        janitor in reply to Henry Hawkins. | March 30, 2016 at 11:25 am

        This isn’t difficult. In a crowd in which people were jostling all over the place, he blocked a woman from behind in a non-memorable one-second non-event who had pushed herself into the circle between Secret Service agents and Trump as their group was hurrying toward the exit door.

        The next day, “a” woman claimed that she had been “thrown down”.

Here is one of Ann Coulter’s latests tweets on this:

Whatever your politics, whatever your ethnicity or religion, please take a moment to pray for the recovery of brave Michelle Fields.

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) March 29, 2016

Let me add my two cents.

Let us all help Michelle recover by buying her upcoming book:—Overthrow/dp/0553447556/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1459302998&sr=8-1&keywords=michelle+fields

Ann Coulter ‏@AnnCoulter 1h1 hour ago

Ann Coulter Retweeted Mike Cernovich

Same office spent yrs investigating Rush’s prescription pain pills, but let a pederast walk.

Fields obviously saw Trump pull back away from her just before she was grabbed by Lewandowski. She wouldn’t have been aware that just before Lewandowski grabbed her a Secret Service agent had started to push her away, but she certainly knew WHY she was being pulled away. Yet none of this has entered her account of the incident. As she told it at the time, Trump was still taking questions and she merely asked a question and suddenly for no discernible reason she was yanked away.

She knew damned well why she was being yanked away. Her contact on Trump’s arm had caused him to turn and pull away. So if the cover-up of Lewandowski’s non-crime is supposed to be the crime now, Fields has a big cover-up of her own going on, pretending there was no reason she was pulled away.

One must also wonder what kind of sense of entitlement this girl has, to think she can physically accost this candidate who is constantly under physical threat, and when it leads to the mildest possible physical restraint insist that it is all about her?

Megan Kelly is very similar. She pulled a full-on Candy Crowley, abandoning her moderator role to directly herself attack Trump with the most dishonestly demagogic of all of the Democrats’ dishonestly demagogic attack lines, accusing him of engaging in a “war against women,” a meme that began with Sandra Fluke. Hey, if you don’t buy women their birth control for them, it is an act of WAR baby.

In perfect conformity with that utterly fraudulent double-standard, Kelly and her defenders endlessly demand that TRUMP should apologize, and that she has nothing to apologize for. About her abandoning the role of moderator to debate with Trump herself (dishonestly debate, exactly as Crowley did with Romney) Kelly doubled down: “I’m in the arena too!” No you aren’t bitch. You are there to MODERATE between the debaters, not to debate with them yourself.

Where does this insane sense of female entitlement come from, that they don’t have to adhere to any moral limits? Kelly’s supposed to be conservative. She’s supposed to know that what Candy Crowley did was wrong. But no, it is Trump who is supposed to apologize, and now Fields is a Kelly clone. Fire all these damned females. They have no moral sense.

When Kelly attacked Trump with the war on women line everybody knew how wrong it was, but as soon as he fired back most of the people on the right forgot that she was the one who was wrong, like a mass of idiotic white-knighting beta males who can’t resist rushing to protect the pretty girl, just because she’s a pretty girl.

It’s so fricking beta. I hate it. That Kelly can get away with her Candy Crowley act without ever having to apologize, that is such a shame on the conservo-sphere, an embarrassing “bloody” shame. Hey, it’s obviously got to do with the fact that she is female so why not go there? It’s so disgusting that conservative men are letting these females get away with things they would never let a male get away with.

    willow in reply to AlecRawls. | March 30, 2016 at 6:42 am

    As a female, I totally agree with your comment. I never believed that Trump was referring to “the cycle.” If you are familiar with his speech pattern, he got a little bungled up. One unrelated point is that haters say he could have been more rich if he had invested the money from his father. So, he sits on his a** and lives a privileged life with no work ethic? I don’t like the demagoguing of him either. He is a flawed candidate, like any candidate who has ever run. There has been a stalemate in Congress for years, except when the Republicans cave. Maybe Trump can get more concessions. There will never be a 100 percent cave in of Democrats. But I stood for my principles! Yeah, so why are we living in moral decay?

    Anyone but Hillary. It is mind boggling that the Democrats have had to work so little against the candidate who has been in the lead for months. The Establishment made their input unnecessary.

    gmac124 in reply to AlecRawls. | March 30, 2016 at 1:14 pm

    “When Kelly attacked Trump with the war on women line everybody knew how wrong it was”

    The funny thing is Kelly was trying to help Trump. If he would have handled this situation without making it personal he could have distanced himself from this issue for the rest of the campaign and general election cycle. Because he chose to be a jackass and attack Kelly he will never be rid of the “war on women” and the democratic opponent if he wins the nomination will ride this and Trump U to the white house. Of course that is how Trump handles everything is to react and attack. If he learned how to prepare and turn negatives into positives he might be a great candidate. As it currently is Trump is the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime.

Just another sign of how off the rails this election has run. A minor event even according to Fields has now exploded into a 24/7 covered news item. And the few clips are being studied with energy and effort not seen since the Zapruder film. Everyone calling each other names simply because another disagrees.

Maybe I live in a cocoon. But if my work and personal live were like this day in and day out, I might have to go underground or find an island to occupy.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men can not put Michelle Fields’ career back together again.

She must have been subjected to liberal university mind programming to have pulled this idiomatic stunt.

She’s a liar and legal has lost their credibility

    Video evidence isn’t good enough for you? You sound about as reasonable as the folks that still think Michael Brown was executed while kneeling with his hands in the air.

      Did you really make that comparison when the Michael Brown incident ruined a police officer’s life and caused so much destruction and pain to the community? Really?

Right after the arm attack happened you can see Michelle walking of with the plaid shirt/backpack gentlemen. These two had some kind of conversation, and he definitely egged her on. I don’t believe Corey tried to through her to the floor. That part seems ridiculous. Overall, I have to agree with Henry Hawkins. The bigger issue, in my mind, is that Corey lied about grabbing her. That cannot be settled in a court.

What a load of crap this whole event is! This reporter has had a similar issue with the NYPD and described the same “Attack” and throwing her to the ground then. It didn’t happen then and it didn’t happen now. This woman is a publicity seeker and her career is just about over. That being said Trump and his mindless bullies simply have no judgement about anything. They over react to any provocation and then insult an entire new group of future voters. Other than the 30 – 40% of the Republican base, just exactly who is Trump betting on voting for him? Not women, not blacks, not Hispanics, not any of the other candidate’s voters and that leaves the less than half of the Republican base. Come on Trumpets, you must realize that he can’t keep up this smash face insulting approach and have any voters left can you? Who is he “Winning” over to his cause and how? Go ahead and throw your insults, I’m prepared to receive them for what they are.

    It’s interesting how repetitive noise from all around drowning out the facts can create the perception that it’s Trump and Trump supporters who are doing the insulting.

    Trump and supporters have been unfairly, inaccurately, and continuously attacked by numerous so-called conservatives, including periodicals, blogs, and websites, as well as the left, as well as the GOPe directly, constantly and unrelentingly. Some of these have received huge financial donations from Ted Cruz PACs and/or the donors to those PACs — previously supporting Jeb Bush and then Rubio.

    Instead of ferreting out the corruption, we get me-too noise on minutiae from this website. And, roughly a year or so ago, a disturbing change in tone with the foulest language attacking people who support Trump.

Guys, it’s a misdemeanor battery as described in the relevant statute. It’s up to the DA as to whether to prosecute. The incident is so minor, that even with a complaint filed, it’s still just a misdemeanor. But then, the Trump people had to go “nuts and sluts”, instead of offering a quiet apology. Had they done so, she might have whined about it a little more, but it would’ve gone away.

But that was unacceptable to a campaign that must be smarter then everyone and more alpha than everyone 100% of the time, so here we are. How insane.

    Why should Trump apologize for something he didn’t do, didn’t see happen, was an extremely minor nothing in his defense, has been made into an obnoxious brouhaha, and initially was lied about by the “victim”.

    Has SHE apologized for pushing into the circle of Secret Service agents and grabbing at him after she was told twice to back off?

    If she had done this to Obama or Clinton, what do you think would have happened to her?

      janitor in reply to janitor. | March 30, 2016 at 4:21 am

      And if you think that would satisfy and shut up the anti-Trump propagandists, you’re naive.

      All it would do is lend the imprimatur of credibility to the ridiculous victim claim, and in addition to harming Lewandowski inappropriately, would become the forever repeated media refrain that “Trump had to apologize for…”, after which there would be no explaining or justification possible.

      “Why should Trump apologize for something he didn’t do, didn’t see happen, was an extremely minor nothing in his defense, has been made into an obnoxious brouhaha, and initially was lied about by the “victim”.”

      Your off the rails. Nobody said Trump needed to apologize. It was on Corey the entire time. Hell if Corey would have just acknowledged that the incident happened, even if he didn’t apologize, would have defused the whole mess. The smear campaign and denials are what tainted Trump and now he owns it like it or not. How many more “nothing burgers” need to float up before you realize he isn’t a viable candidate?

Paul Nehlan to challenge Paul Ryan.

You say the video “appears to show” Lewandowski reaching for Fields, not that it does show him grabbing her. So you admit there is reasonable doubt that it happened therefore he gets acquitted at trial, right?

I’m a big, big fan of Milo Yiannopoulos. He “gets it”. I read LI/CI daily because you are a great source of SJW nonsense and leftist PC tactics. Trump is giving the leftist tactics and “media narrative” the big metaphorical punch in the nose it so richly deserves and instead of cheers we get hand wringing? What’s wrong with you people?

Once again we are being strung along by yet another bullshit “media narrative”. I showed the video to my non-partisan young adult children with no context and asked them to identify the assault.They watch the videos over and over and were stumped. So I pointed out the alleged culprit of the “assault” and they still couldn’t identify it. So the alleged assault was a “nothingburger” and the narrative moves on to Trump should have handled it better and move along. He didn’t do that. Yay! Instead he chose to expose just how insipid the “media narrative” can be. Bravo! As Milo would say – “Go Daddy go”.

    CL should not have said he didn’t grab her, but I hardly believe he intentionally set out to hurt her or manhandle her because of her gender. It was so blasted quick, that it did not even seem to register. When comments here sound like Huff Post, there is something wrong.

Don’t ever forget that this was all part of the larger narrative that the Trump campaign incites violence. If you offend the leftist sacred cows and incite their wrath – you my friend are the guilty party. I want nothing to do with it. I fully support anyone who fights against this nonsense, unapologetically.

The only thing I can think of is, dueling blonde jokes.
