Video Emerges of Corey Landowski Yanking Michelle Fields, Like She Says; Trump World Claims, Fantastically, Vindication

The "vindication" apparently is based on the idea that this isn't such a big deal. She wasn't "thrown to the ground."

But she never claimed she was thrown to the ground. She claimed she was jerked and almost thrown to the ground, but recovered her balance. Washington Post Brian Terris has always said the same: That she was grabbed, and then stumbled due to it.

But on Megyn Kelly last week, Trump spokeswoman Katrina Peirson kept shifting the defense to the claim that Michelle Fields had never been "thrown to the ground." Megyn Kelly repeatedly told her that Fields never claimed to have been thrown to the ground; the most she said was that there was an attempt to do so. But she always said: She kept her feet.

Meanwhile, Corey Landowski denied having "touched" Fields at all, and called her "delusional."

Well, now comes the video, as we always knew it would, showing what sure looks like Landowski grabbing Fields, and then Fields stumbling due to the yank.

In the video, you see Lewandowski pass in front her. Fields reacts, dips down slightly, and turns toward him. At the end of the clip, you can see his arm releasing her. No, she doesn't fall. But she never claimed that she did. In fact, the video corroborates that she was grabbed, and her picture of the bruises corroborates that he grabbed her hard enough to hurt her. It certainly wasn't an extreme act of violence, but it was worth apologizing for, and that is all Fields says she wanted.

And... so of course Trump World is claiming this always proves they were 100% right when they were claiming the 100% opposite.

And thus, as with Bill Clinton and the Dress, the defense moves from "never happened, she's a delusional stalker" to "come on, it's no big deal."

Meanwhile, Trump and Lowandowski's utter refusal to simply say "I saw someone coming quickly, I acted too hastily and grabbed her, I apologize" has now completely melted down Trump's only media ally, Breitbart.

Trump would rather burn down an ally than have his campaign manager confess to have briefly, wrongly grabbed a girl trying to ask Trump a question.

So, yeah, would-be Trump allies like the GOP, conservative movement, or immigration-restrictionist movement: I'd be super-eager to sign up to march under Trump's banner. I'm sure it will all turn out well for you. He'll definitely have your back when you need him too.

It's been a PR disaster from the beginning. Even if you KNOW that you're innocent, you don't go with a Carville/Blumenthal "nuts & sluts" defense. You wait for the truth to come out, because the truth is on your side.

Only when the truth isn't on your side do you need to distract everyone with a "nuts & sluts" defense.

44 Even if you KNOW that you're innocent, you don't go with a Carville/Blumenthal "nuts & sluts" defense.

If you are genuinely wronged, you reach out in private and then escalate if necessary. The evidence so far indicates that that step was skipped, and the offense is trivial at best.

Going straight to a public media accusation was an act of bad faith and an attack. A public attacks is responded to in kind, and Trump's response a plus to Trump supporters.

If he fights the trivial things, we can trust he will also fight on the bigger issues.

Now that trust may be misplaced ... Trump may fold like a house of cards once in office ... but the very qualities decried here WRT Fields is evidence against him being an empty suit.

47 It's not the crime, it's the coverup. Ace never said it was a brutal grap-and-yank, just that it was enough to warrant an acknowledgment and apology. That Team Trump would rather melt down a friendly news out than do that more pittance tells you a lot.

Posted by: Steves28 at March 14, 2016 01:23 PM (Ory8r)

48 I don't actually care much about this story. A reporter getting grabbed or shoved by some campaign official is... well, it's just not that serious. As Ace said, and apology would do. And even if the incident was more serious than that, it doesn't reflect on Trump directly.

But the way the campaign and Trump's idiot followers have handled this has been appalling. You're falling all over yourselves to trash the reputation and ruin the life of a reporter... and for what? For some guy you'll never meet? For some campaign manager? For *Wales*?

98 Why should they have to apologize every time some fucking crackpot makes ridiculous accusations? They would just be overloaded with ridiculous accusations and apologizing non-stop which would make them look weak.

They were fucking right not to give into this scrunts hysterics and the whining of her pussy ass boyfriend and then all the little bitches like ace who rushed to defend her.

Waiting for all the facts to come in they were vindicated, and those who rushed to hysterical judgement look like assholes and chumps, ace.

I'm not seeing a jolt, a yank down, or anybody almost falling to the ground.

I have to agree, after watching that video twice I didn't see any thing like what she said. It looks like possibly someone may have bumped her, or she stumbled slightly over something on the floor, but no where does it look like she was grabbed tightly or otherwise.

111 She said she was grabbed from behind and didn't see who did it. In the clip, Lewandowski was not behind her; she had a clear view of him. And the video doesn't show ANYone touching her. In fact, when Lewandowski passes by her, she is not in the vicinity of Trump (her claim was that she was in mid-question when grabbed). Her facial expression doesn't change, as you would expect it to had she been grabbed and displaced. She doesn't appear to lose a single step as Lewandowski passes by. Previous photos show Lewandowski three or four feet from Fields with someone else in between. The video is two-dimensional, and does not allow seeing the gap (whatever it was or wasn't) between Fields and Lewandowski.

The video is captioned that the allegation is proved false, and it looks that way to me. It supports Fields' story only for someone determined to see it.

"More than you got," is my reply. It isn't how he rolls, and seeing how far the Democrats have gotten not apologizing and instead brazening things out, I'm not sure that tactically he isn't wrong. Apologizing for mistakes and intentional slights hasn't won the Republicans any battles, they seem to get slammed harder for agreeing to their opponent's definitions. Ignoring them and moving onward seems to be the answer that works politically.

This is one of those "no clean hands" things though, and the respective sides, entrenched, are going to a WW-1 trench warfare stalemate over it.

Which is equally as stupid as the original WW-1 trench warfare.

What's worse about this one, is that the Allies are shooting at each other from opposing trenches, while the Jerries watch askance, laughing the whole while.

Matt Boyle spent half of last year chopping Scott Walker off at the knees at Breitbart over campaign advisers and low and behold now you have a campaign adviser for Trump who did get physical with a female reporter and then straight up lied about it.

It's not a matter of kindness to reach out in private to deal with wrongs. That's one falsehood. Going public is escalation. Escalation may help your case, but it also raises the stakes.

Fields publicly attacked Trump first, and now she gets counter-attacked publicly in response. Trumps is doing to Fields as she did to him. That's entirely fair. No one's called her a whore, that's you.

That's two false statements. And you're going to accuse me of lying about what I believe?

187 I think her boyfriend, Jamie Weinstein, escalated it unnecessarily when he tweeted that Trump's guy "tried to pull Fields to the ground." Obviously not the case from the video. That started the rodeo of stupidity from both sides.

Her boyfriend went off half-cocked and the Trump guy should have apologized like Ace said. Everyone loses.

The video to me shows a tiny guy nonchalantly moving people aside, the look on his face and body language certainly don't show this man was attempting to exert physical violence.

Breitbart suspended a reporter for questioning the narrative and requesting the video evidence that we're looking at now.

The rest of their leadership can quit over this and I won't give a damn.

Posted by: ReactionaryMonster browsing Bravely at March 14, 2016 01:41 PM (uURQL)

212 So, on the one hand we have:

Many fans of Trump doing a "fierce" defense of their candidate. Except this guy is not the candidate, he is a guy who works for the candidate. Anyone who criticizes this guy is impugning the honor of Trump and must be an establishment shill.

On the other:

Many people who dislike Trump are attacking this guy as though he is Trump- except he is not Trump, he is a guy who works for Trump. Anyone who supports them, be he troll in Trump Fan clothing or not (and usually someone who calls her a slut/whore is a tip off) is used to then tar Trump as though he directly said it.

My pov:

Why is this video in super slow mo? Every motion, no matter what has a tendency to make motion look much more gentle than it does in real speed. Does this mean she was almost thrown to the ground? Probably not.

Everyone goes straight to plaid these days. Everyone seems to use ANYTHING that happens to confirm their already bedrock assumptions.

Trump defending his man, even though he MIGHT have bit exuberant? Well, this man will fight for us on any issue.

Trump defending his man? Well, that means he must condone violence against women.

Sheesh.

What I think should have/should happen? Trump or more importantly the guy should apologize for jostling the poor lady. That is just good manners even if she is trying to use this to get at Trump. It would have helped defuse the situation before it went to plaid speed.

Trump could enact communism, and they'd fawn over him.

Of course not! they will blame never trump people.

once again, the claim changes from "he never touched her" to "I see nothing *horrible* happening."

He grabbed her, which is what she said happened. He had no right to do this, and was just trying to shut her up from asking a question.

The fact that you don't think this is "horrible' is irrelevant, as the discussion was not "Did something *horrible* happen?"

Though I would say people's longing for, or at least acceptance of, a casually violent, thuggish leader is revealing.

264 "Yeah, that sounds like the totally classy approach encouraged by Donald J. Trump. Someone wrongs you, so you privately reach out, with kindness.

And because Fields didn't do unto Donald as she would have him do unto her, she's a whore and a liar."

No, I see what the other poster is saying. Did Fields make any effort to contact the campaign or the actual offender and say "hey did you know you bruised me and almost yanked me to the ground?" or did she run to the media instead? Smells like a gotcha move, and those moves aren't worthy of civility.

BTW, who has called her a "whore" over this? Or are you just trying to spice up a bland dish so we don't notice the absence of meat?

280 So ace, you think that Field's claim that she was assaulted will be prosecuted by the courts? She's filed a police report, and she is the one that will have to push for a prosecution (this being the case where the police did not directly observe a misdemeanor)...

And she will be liable to a charge of false prosecution if it goes to trial and she loses. That's my amateur understanding of the law fwiw.

Also I would note that a media scrum and a rugby scrum are hard to tell apart except for the clothes worn.

281 I honestly went from completely believing that Landowski assaulted her and that trump should just fire him, to now thinking this was some fame hungry reporter trying to exploit the tiniest opening.


This is the equivalent of bumping into someone at a bar.

The fact that this reporter repeatedly has found herself in situations like this where she was beat up by a cop or groped by Allen West, etc just further erodes her credibility.

"Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken. "

Fields takes a step backwards and turns, but her head never drops in height.

That's some major losing balance and almost falling there ... I bet she does aerobics to recover from something like that.

She told the WaPo reporter to write about it, she didn't keep it "private". She wasn't looking to keep it private. Her right to not be quiet. But she claims she wanted to keep it quiet, and that isn't something you can claim when you told a WaPo reporter to write about it.

222 >>>What exactly am I supposed to see in this video. No many how many times I've seen it, I see no indication of anything horrible happening to her.

once again, the claim changes from "he never touched her" to "I see nothing *horrible* happening."

He grabbed her, which is what she said happened. He had no right to do this, and was just trying to shut her up from asking a question.

The fact that you don't think this is "horrible' is irrelevant, as the discussion was not "Did something *horrible* happen?"

Though I would say people's longing for, or at least acceptance of, a casually violent, thuggish leader is revealing.

346 she told Megyn it was the worst thing that has happened to her except her father dying, and was almost in (attempted) tears, in her low cut night gown.

She immediately told that Post reporter, that asked about putting it in his story, "go for it" (not wait 24 hours, I want to talk to them). That those two knew their own talk was recorded, and spoke of it as such a violent action, seems overplayed and deliberately so, to me.

video shows no touching at all, just her misstep (could have been a grab, but other video angle just showed his arm straight out, and there is no jerk in his motion)

she is already behind Trump when her brief change of direction happens.

Her question was "are you still against affirmative action?" (iirc) Isn't SCOTUS also against that?

What seems most clear is the networks are desperate to rack up "violence" accusations against Trump, and they have to use what they can find. One old man sucker punched a guy, and this "incident".

358 P.S. this video appears to be a subset of the last video - as in by necessity it shows *less* than the last one.

Both videos are ambiguous (well, all three).

I discount the third video almost entirely because it shows less than the second one (just over and over in slow motion).

But none of them "prove" a great deal.

However, as I said, it's not so much the event as the reaction that is depressing. And predictable.

Saying a sin is worthy of death in God's eyes is not the same as doing what ISIS does and throwing gays off of rooftops. Especially since the basic Christian belief is that we are all sinners and worthy of eternal death/damnation.

Public accusation and demand for an apology is an escalation and an SJW attack. A public apology is proof of guilt and means #WarOnWoman and #TrumpIsViolence.

The only way there could have been an apology is if Fields privately contacted Corey and asked for an apology.

You'll note that in Fields' own words, she doesn't say she ever contacted Corey privately to seek a reconciliation. She never gave them the option of an apology - she went for the public apology which is an escalation.

So I'm fine with the current state of things. Let her seek her 15 minutes of fame, Never Apologize to her, and let's see which "conservative" figures are Stuck on Stupid and insist on giving the Left ammunition to win for a false conception of honor.

once again, the claim changes from "he never touched her" to "I see nothing *horrible* happening."

He grabbed her, which is what she said happened. He had no right to do this, and was just trying to shut her up from asking a question.

The fact that you don't think this is "horrible' is irrelevant, as the discussion was not "Did something *horrible* happen?"

Though I would say people's longing for, or at least acceptance of, a casually violent, thuggish leader is revealing.

Yep. This is where I'm at. The video shows the incident was

admission and apology then this whole shitstorm could've been avoided.

.Apologize for what? I mean that as a serious question. By the time anyone knew about this it had exploded into a minefield for anyone associated with Trump and if his campaign had apologized it would have been all over the MSM.......Trump campaign manager apologizes for grabbing and throwing a woman reporter to the ground, etc,.....which from the numerous videos did not happen the way she claims it did.

419 Hey Pete


She's the claiming she wanted to keep I private. Read what I wrote. I said it's her right to go public. But she claims she wanted to keep it private after already telling a WaPo reporter to write about it

It's about credibility, belief in her word. Even the latest video doesn't show an arm grab or who did it. You see jostling.

No yanking. No pulling down. No almost falling. You have to take her word on the grabbing. I'm finding that hard to do


And I was firmly in her camp, until this video. I used to be a criminal prosecutor. This whole thing is less than nothing

"overwhelming evidence" sounds remarkably like "the science is settled", and equally kooky.

Everyone here has seen the same videos you've seen and don't agree the video shows anything more serious than a jostle. This girl has a new book coming out next month, was looking for a new job on TV and is a member of the most unscrupulous profession on earth, next to Mexican cartel leader.

It's a small story. Fields was being overly dramatic.

457 Breitbart site seemed to favor Trump, but certainly not everyone there was on board, some no doubt feeling Cruz was being shorted. I can imagine some dissension happening over that alone, precipitated out with this seemingly trivial incident, that became a "but they didn't apologize and instead defamed her" argument.

Then it became a stand unfortunately around her, but really more about which candidate would be supported, which no doubt has much more behind it. I'm curious about a tell all behind all the tactics and undercover work, and the various backers and histories.

482 "overwhelming evidence" sounds remarkably like "the science is settled", and equally kooky.

Everyone here has seen the same videos you've seen and don't agree the video shows anything more serious than a jostle. This girl has a new book coming out next month, was looking for a new job on TV and is a member of the most unscrupulous profession on earth, next to Mexican cartel leader.

I don't support Trump, but those who are attacking him for not firing his most critical advisor over an equivocal (at most!) assertion are loony. This is politics.
Posted by: MTF at March 14, 2016 02:06 PM (TxJGV)


Who said anything about Trump firing anyone? Its about Breitbart backing their reporter. Do you seriously think that the man who hijacked Anthony Weiner's press conference would take the side of Donald Trump (or any other politician for that matter) over his own staff? No! It'd be #FUCK YOU, WAR.
Breitbart.com jumped on Trump for hits. (Just like CBS said they've done) and now they've screwed themselves.

489 once again, the claim changes from "he never touched her" to "I see nothing *horrible* happening."

He grabbed her, which is what she said happened. He had no right to do this, and was just trying to shut her up from asking a question.

The fact that you don't think this is "horrible' is irrelevant, as the discussion was not "Did something *horrible* happen?"

Though I would say people's longing for, or at least acceptance of, a casually violent, thuggish leader is revealing.


Posted by: ace at March 14, 2016 01:43 PM (dciA+)



You're assuming that this was something more than a typical clearing of a security corridor for Trump.

I'm not seeing it.

Every celebrity has frankly much rougher clearing of the space around the celeb than what is seen here.

This Fields chick isn't so famous or so physically striking that anybody's going to remember her.

For Corey, it was probably just an average night clearing space for the boss.

And the claim that she was almost thrown to the ground-

probably did sound like a nutcase.

Because Corey would remember no such thing and nothing so dramatic.

Plus, her record of previous claims- probably confirms the "nut" diagnosis.


Frankly, with all the threats that I'm sure Trump has been getting-

I'm surprised that it wasn't a rough removal instead of what for security looks very gentle.

and that she's a woman makes no difference-

I'm sure you've heard of that frail flower of womanhood Squeaky Fromm and her presidential adventure.


And no I'm not a Trump guy.

Cruz is my first choice by far.

498 Team Trump would rather go into full meltdown than actually do what real men do when they make a small mistake.

This is the other side of the coin to FYNQ. We all love it when Trump refuses to bow to the Social Justice types and cave in when they claimed offense. But that attitude does not come in isolation, he'll very reluctant to apologize for anything because sign of weakness, gives opponents upper hand, bad negotiating and ego almost as big as Obama's.

So, good with the bad, I guess. As you noted (I believe accurately) mild apology, minor incident.

503 I was really hoping that this was video where you could actually see something definitive so that this deeply stupid episode could come to a merciful end one way or another, but no.

To me, it does look like she could have been yanked aside briefly (however hard she was grabbed) and looks up with a surprised, WTF expression on her face.

But then I think she made a big, showy deal out of it, egged on by that Ferris guy. Maybe she did deserve an apology, but the way this was handled made it unlikely she would get one. We'll see what happens with the filed charges.

Maybe it could rest until then? :: shrugs fatalistically::

This. What's demonstrated is a profound lack of maturity on all fronts. A sissy journalist that is making a big deal out of something that is truly nothing at all. And then some other sissy journalists and bloggers that don't actually have the stomach to stand up to the left. They like to wax poetic on the internet and media, but push comes to shove and they're powder puffs. If ace thinks this incident, some lady being bumped into, warrants cries of fascism, then heaven help him when times actually get rough. This demonstrates total lack of comprehension for what's going on out there in the real world.

What people ought to be talking about is the fact that a mob of leftist terrorists attacked a completely peaceful gathering of Republicans in Chicago on Friday and how they are publicly planning to do it again and again and again. More than that we should be talking about Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich defending those terrorists and seizing it as an opportunity to score political points. This is it folks. This is that moment when lines get drawn in the sand, you must choose one or the other sand. There is no being neutral, you're on one side or the other. Period. Trump may be a jerk and all that, but I damn sure know what side I'm on. The left wants to divide us. They want us to implode.

It's so obvious that Fields was out of line. She touched and was moving in on a presidential candidate. Security - campaign and/or SS moved her away in a literal one second pass.

To say that Corey would remember her is ludicrous. To say he deserved to have his name slandered like it was is deplorable.

The story for days was Corey slammed this poor woman reporter for asking tough questions. Turns out she approached Trump with something in her hand and she was (kindly - in my opinion) moved aside.

She's a real special snowflake. Her quotes of tears, fear and drama are really shameful and defamatory.

1. A known friendly news organization calls you and claims that their reporter claims you injured her, you apologize. Period. It's simply common sense. And all it needs to be is, "sorry if your reporter was hurt while we were clearing the way for Mr. Trump."

2. I don't see how the number of bad incidents that happen to someone impugns their integrity. If Lora Logan, heaven forbid, had something bad happen to her again, would you disbelieve her because she's already had something happen to her? That's silly.

550 "Fuck Breitbart for that, but not Fields"

Nah. Fuck the Trump fans for doing their best to ruin conservatism.

Trump performed a valuable service: he moved the Overton Window on immigration, and he cleared out the RINO squishes. Awesome stuff. And in doing that, he secured the nomination for an actual conservative: Ted Cruz.

But that's not good enough for the Trumptards. They've got to burn all of conservatism down. Cruz isn't conservative enough. A year ago each and every Trumptard would have been thrilled to have Cruz as our nominee. But now they're willing to lose this election because they're a bunch of Trump-fellating retards. And Turmp's not even a conservative. He's lying about immigration. He loves single-payer. He's a goddam New York liberal, and these gullible idiots believe them.

Fuck those assholes. Fuck anyone who carries water for this pro-choice, open-borders, liberal liar. Fuck them all.

Now, you're shifting ground. But even this is ridiculous. If every reporter was jostled, a safe bet, why apologize to her? Or, rather, why stop there? Why not apologize to the entire audience?

The event itself was a big nothing burger, and the campaign overreacted. That's the answer to your question. Of course, Trump won one more news cycle as a result (even if it fed the MoveOn "violence" meme).

My only quibble is at the end of the episode there was the intimation that Carol might be losing her nerve. I hope not.

Oh... and Preacher steps up last week.
Posted by: fixerupper at March 14, 2016 01:55 PM (8XRCm)<<<<




See, I don't think she was completely faking while she was duck taped. I think she was having a crisis of conscience about all her killings. Even the actress herself said on the Talking Dead afterward, that it was supposed to be ambiguous.



Old Carol, the one who burned the two sick people at the prison, the one who wanted to kill Morgan's Wolf prisoner, the one who had Lizzie look at the flowers... she would never have hesitated to cap the ginger. Crisis of conscience Carol did. She wants to hook up with that dude she gave cookies to last week. He basically said she's scary in what she can do (as a "mother" for the Alexandrians). I think she'd gotten tired of being an enforcer, knowing that means you can't allow yourself to get attached to anyone or anything. It must have taken a toll.



But to protect Maggie and the baby, her "protective mother" instinct kicked back in, and she removed the threats. Old Carol will be back after the short layoff. There are many more threats to come.

557 Nice backpedaling, Trumpkins. You've gone from arguing that he never
grabbed her, not no way, not no how, to trying to spin about how HARD he
grabbed her.

Exactly.

Yeah, it's a picky story. Fields is overplaying it, being dramatic.

But it's the damned reaction that is the problem here.

If this had been any other campaign these sycophants would have never stopped talking about it. But it's their tough guy Trump and we must be tough and it's the liberal media and we must not be PC and we're tired of the Establishment.

All of these other responses to justify something that is unjustifiable.

Sometimes it's little things like this that show us more about a cause or movement than big things.

They can't say, "Yeah, Trump messed up here." No, must not admit error. Must always defend Trump.

If she tried to touch Trump first, it's self defense of a third person. She doesn't get a freebie touch.
Trump touched against his will by her would be battery then.

562 If Trump had underbussed his guy, we'd be hearing "see, Trumpers, he'll cut run on you..." with a different twist. It's not Trump's job to quell internal problems between Team Cruz/Hoax and Team News at Breitbart.

We don't believe what we read because we see all the more clearly how personal relationships define news coverage ala Gamergate. The remedy for that is not more wagon-circling and finger-wagging at readers for being so stupid they have to be misled back to "sanity" as construed by the George Will wing of the GOP (4 more years of Bush).

573 Longtime lurker here - don't expect anyone to give a crap what I think, but here goes:

I am not a Trump cultist; I agree that he has red flags everywhere. It's obvious he hasn't really thought through the issues or developed any kind of coherent philosophy. That's not even getting into personality/character traits.

That said -- which of these other candidates running are we supposed to be placing our trust in?

Cruz claims to have our back, but when the chips were down last week he went on television to make excuses for BLM and communist anarchists. He either doesn't understand the nature of progressivism, or he placed politics over the country.

Imagine if an Obama rally had been disrupted by a horde of white rednecks. Could you imagine Hillary or any other Democrat going on TV and saying...that bad Obama, he was sooo divisive in his rhetoric, he invited this? I'm laughing as I type this because it's so absurd -- yet that's exactly what Cruz did on our side.

Rubio...we don't have to speculate whether he will betray us if elected, because we've already seen it.

At this point, our choices are so bad I'd go for Trump just to watch him fight the progressives for a few months, even if it's aimlessly.

I doubt that reporters, or anyone else for that matter, have consented to battery for merely being close to and speaking to Trump in an area which they have been given permission to be in. For instance, neither the SS or Trump's staff, could have just walked out of that room, punching in the face anyone within range.

nominee. But now they're willing to lose this election because they're a

Or sexy girls shirt scientist - whose scientific achievement of landing a probe on a comet was tossed ignored because it's misogyny to celebrate sexy girls. His apology did not rehabilitate him - only proved that he was Misogynist Scum.

660 Good grief...this is madness. I've lurked here for a decade, and appreciate Ace's tenacity when he locks on to a target. It's generally driven by objectivity and facts...I can appreciate his frustration as he points these things out and mirror the "why the hell doesn't anyone in the media pick this up" undertone. In a way, it feels like he's reading my mind (I haven't seen any posts about a menage with the girl from Fuller House and Kate Upton...so pretty sure he's not actually reading my mind). But this, it just doesn't fit the mold.

I was raised to never get rough with the fairer sex. Period. I've watched the video a couple of times, and I can't make a determination one way or another. There are two people who actually know, and quite honestly, neither are trustworthy arbiters of the truth. I could appreciate Ace taking this hard line if the lady was family, or a close friend, and if that's the case, then OK. But to bulldog this story, bait with comments (there are idiotic supporters for any candidate, ANY candidate, that can be incendiary and stupid), and generally take the scorched earth tactic for this story just doesn't stand to reason. Had Trump been the one to engage in the "physical altercation" I'm 100% with you, but he didn't. There are myriad concrete policy issues with which to beat him about the head and neck, but this isn't it. If the point is to preach that Trump is boisterous and unapologetic...I have to say that if folks haven't picked up on that yet, they're not going to. I've toyed with the idea that you're playing 5th dimensional chess here and you're actually trying to boost support for Trump for this...I honestly just can't tell.

I'm not a Trump guy. I'm in Texas, and proudly voted for Cruz. I still think he's got a chance. But if he doesn't, my second choice is "anyone other than Hillary". Ace, I respect you. I'm a fan, and hit the site more times a day than I'd even venture to guess. I'm by no means qualified to tell, hell even ask, you how to run your ship...I'll just say that this doesn't seem like the substantive hits that make me send out/tag Ace stories to anyone I know. It feels like you need a good steak, a cold beer (or several), and a fat cigar...and disconnect for a couple of days. I'm holding out hope that things level out as this nomination process comes to a close, and I'll keep hitting the site like Joe Lewis until then to see if it happens.

Eh, before this shot she was walking calmly next to Trump with her recorder, asking a question about affirmative action, and he was responding, then she was grabbed, so I don't think she was seen as a threat--more like CL wanted a reporter he didn't recognize to stop asking questions. She was subbing on the Trump beat because the usual guy was out for some reason.

You're right that celeb body guards are rough-- we were at a thing in Los Angeles where my cute niece got jostled out of the way by Travolta's goons, but they didn't grab her, and they didn't make bruises on her. BTW, Harrison Ford was the other star there and he didn't have any goons.

688 "You oppose immigration due to being a white supremacis"

Hardly. Immigration is what made this country great.

What we oppose is ILLEGAL immigration. See, we think there should be some kind of laws re immigration, and that those laws should be enforced so that immigration into this country is controlled by adults, instead of a border rush like the native americans experienced. Because it didn't work out to well for them.

Posted by: buzzsaw90 at March 14, 2016 02:31 PM (o7Ufw)<<<

Yeah, I can definitely see that. Carol lost her daughter (not even gonna count the abusive husband) and that was everything good she had. It helped her develop the armor necessary to do some of the brutal things she's had to do.

Maggie's lost almost her entire family too (though more of them, and not all in one fell swoop), but she still has Glenn and the little bun in the oven. She doesn't need to wall herself off from attachment like Carol has. She doesn't need to be the bad ass fighter that Carol has become. She was being groomed to be Deanna's successor, and doesn't need to put herself into danger, especially in her "condition" as an expectant mother, and a hope for Alexandria's future.

Carol thinks she can have a different path. Maybe not, with the way their world is, but Carol seems determined to give her that opportunity.

No both aren't liars. Why would Corey even remember her? One second contact that didn't even register with him more than crowd control.

Her description was so self-serving and over the top that of course he'd deny her account because her account is defamatory.

We've all seen security throwing people down and that is what we were lead to believe happened but that's not what occurred.

Corey should sue for defamation.

710 The video, all of it, is every bit as mild as her her calm and casual demeanor is in the full audio.

WP Pajama Boy was going to report on it and get his spotlight at her expense and maybe, just maybe, she felt compelled to jump out in front so it was her face in front of the cameras instead of his. Because, she's certainly comfortable to be a marginally paid online reporter for the rest of her career and hurting trump would be a bad move, right?

Oh, and maybe Shapiro quit because it's his golden moment as well to get a gravy, paying gig at Fox (as suggested) or NR or the rest of the DC circuit.

Again, the video and audio make this "battery" laughable. And bruises are really easy to make happen if you know that's going to be all you have to work with.

Its like Cato the Elder said" carthago delinda est, because their foreign minister grabbed my secretary by the arm and left a bruise and carthage didn't apologize right away".
There were many excellent reasons why Carthage needed to be destroyed.
There are many excellent reasons to not vote for Donald Trump. In fact, our very own Cato the blogger could easily marshal much better arguments against Trump than this kerfluffle, which does not rise to a matter of policy, politics or ideology.
The most interesting oddity of all, is that bloggers seem to be stuck on this incident, instead of the fact that Trump polls consistentlybehind the worst democratic candidate in the 21st century. He's a serial philander who doesn't keep his marital vows, he allegedly doesn't keep his business vows either, and the main reason for voting for him is because one ostensibly believes he will do what he says. There's a lot of material there to work with to undercut his credibility.
Instead we get a social drama between a campaign manager and a reporter. Neither of whom is going to have any impact on governance after the election.
Its just very odd considering the wealth of material that is being left on the table by those who aresupposedly anti-trump.
I find the whole thing very confused.Perhaps that's the goal then.

747 White supremacists?

I'll quibble with Fen and say Americans are what made America - not "immigrants." The nation became greater when the immigrants who arrived were assimilated into the preexisting culture of Americans that started in the 17th century. The fact immigrants came from elsewhere was if anything a bug, not a feature, but one we turned to our advantage by turning them American.

I for one support a drastic curtailment of legal immigration as from 1920s-1960s to promote assimilation and stem cultural drift toward the Left/Other. Illegals go without saying.

The fact this position provokes "supremacist" screamers shows how deep the neoconservative kool-aid has soaked into the conservative bedrock in America.

Splutter all you like, traditional American conservatism has been anti-immigration, pro-protectionism and anti-interventionist. I've been on the other side and I see where we neocons made mistakes we're refusing to own up to. We discredited conservatism to two generations and it's biting us in the ass.

Our choice is to remain the party of discontented ideologues railing at "stupid voters" and ratf*cking our way to power or follow the Constitution and rule of law we claimed to uphold and recognize we need to scale down our ambitions and indignations and rebuild voter trust again.

Demanding public apologies that will be ammunition for the left is not an act of an ally. Though now that Fields is gone, I don't see any reason for there to be bad feelings between the two camps.

763 I am surprised that Ace is doubling down on this. The video posted above is proof positive that this "assault" is a laughable claim. It's classic arm flailing hysterics over nothing. I've been treated worse at amusement parks, and for less.

I'm a practicing lawyer and Cruz supporter (just to get that out there), and from I've seen, this claim is a joke. It's great for damaging someone in the press, but that's it. I can only marvel at the law enforcement money pissed away haggling over this.

And for Gawd's sake, who in the f*ck is going to come out an apologize before they even know what the hell happened? That's separate from slandering someone who makes a claim, but, and I'm goign to type this slow, the party making the claim HAS THE BURDEN OF PROOFING IT. How about we actually, like, request that proof first? Brietbart actually suspended someone for asking for a video? Are you kidding me?

Let's cut the bullshit and ask yourself seriously - what Judge would find someone guilty of "assault" for that action? Then ask - what judge would actually issue a sentence of anything other than a fine? Then ask - what are the victim's damages here? Medical care? For a bruise? She made more money from putting this claim out there and getting media attention. And people that hate Trump will gladly swoop right in to give her a job.

Here's an idea - instead of swallowing hook, line and sinker every claim that's made DURING ELECTION SEASON, especially those against a guy that 50% of the country has a hard on to disgrace, we actually, like, wait 5 or so days before we run our mouths and, ya know, actually let the claim be adjudicated by a court of law? Who in the hell thinks the media, or this blog, or any blog, is gonna decide this matter finally? How many f*cking times do "we" have to learn this lesson? Ferguson, Zimmerman, Clock boy, etc., etc. For Christ's sake!

775 Long time lurker here. I supported Trump before I decided to vote for the best candidate running - Cruz. I have looked at all of the pertinent videos online taken at this rally. This latest one posted by Ace is the one with the best view of the so called altercation. I have played it over and over and I just don't see it. This seems to be tied to TDS the same as CDS is rampant at Free Republic. It's amazing that we are trying to nominate a candidate to beat Hillary and all we have is a circular firing squad.

Otherwise, everything would have been private and we wouldn't know about it, duh.

Posted by: ReactionaryMonster browsing Bravely at March 14, 2016 03:08 PM (uURQL)

781 I'm not angry at Ace - it's his blog - but more depressed than anything. I counted on coming here day after day to get a different perspective on politics, with nice use of irreverence and humor to make great points. There was a certain fearlessness too - not being afraid to skewer tropes and cliches.

But this obsession with what might or might not have happened - a real life RASHOMON - baffles me. As others have noted, there is plenty to bash Trump with without this non-event. It's almost like this gag was the play that everyone agreed to to take out Trump, and people (like Ace) are furious it didn't work.

I'm hoping that there will be a moment of clarity a few weeks from now, when Trump is the nominee (not a supporter btw, more a student of what he represents) and we have to decide what to do with him.

Sadly, I think Trump might be taken out either before or after the nomination - he's just upsetting too many people in every direction. I'm not into conspiracy theories, but it sure does start to look weird when an obviously popular (to many) candidate not beholden to anyone is targeted this way.

She said he grabbed her arm, pulled; she didn't fall but lost balance a bit... which is not too far from the video. But he grabbed her hard enough to bruise; which doesn't exactly take a long time.
HE said she's a crazy con artist liar; he never touched her, and he never got near her.Which one is the liar? Oh, the one who gave a story that lines up with what happened in the video.And we should defend as our brave truth teller the one whose claims are entirely destroyed by the video.Because when you're a Trump supporter; facts are something that happens to other people.Or is that NOT what you're saying?

791 Still on this Ace? After Fields and Shapiro were fired/resigned from Breitbart? That Sea Island money from Soros to stop Trump still coming in? I'd like to know, if you got any. I can't figure why you don't retract, given that more video shows (at Gateway Pundit) that Fields was not even touched. The only explanations are either Soros money from the Sea Island meeting of Cruz, Jeb, Rubio, Kasich and the Oligarchs to stop Trump or white-knighting gone berserk.

GotNews has done a number on Fields. She's an attention seeking person who was fired from Daily Caller for being lazy and using social media to write her stories. She wears high heels and sexy/revealing outfits to make herself the story. She was hired at Breitbart because her boyfriend the Editor at Daily Caller pulled favors. She claimed Col Allen West raped her, but did not file charges.

Just the profile of young, White, female reporter screams hard left anti-White male hater, given that this profile is accurate in that regard something like 95% of the time. At least. Her boyfriend is an open Cruz supporter, which raises all sorts of questions.

Meanwhile all sorts of goons are jumping Trump and his supporters. And you want the typical cuckservative grovel in front of an attention whore Media Whore. That's either like I said, White Knighting** gone beserk* or Soros Sea Island Money.

*Only female relatives and women I'm sleeping with deserve my protection and support. All others can scream at White men and the patriarchy all they want. Some random media whore is my enemy confirmed by many, many encounters.

**Friends don't let Friends play White Knight. Its a fools game that only enables female dysfunction and things like sluttery, single mommery, attention whoring, and Lena Dunhamism. Really it is nearly as bad as drunk driving. I'm serious.

As far as "apologizing", if this "assault" is a tort action, it's no different than rear ending someone in your car, and then getting out and saying "sorry, my fault". That just locked you into decision against you, based upon an admission against interest. And the driver you it drops to the ground like Curly and wiggles from "whiplash". Jesus, why do I even have to type this - you NEVER admit fault, you simply exchange info.

Well, hopefully Breitbart can pick up more readers than it's driven away (I for one have gone from being an hourly reader, to not reading them at all). And, doesn't care about its credibility beyond its core readership. If that's their business model, then I wish them good luck. Unfortunately, if Beck's stint on FNC is any indication, it may not be the best strategy for landing and retaining advertisers.

There are eyewitnesses going on the record that nothing happened. Audio evidence cannot possibly prove that Corey battered Fields, and we're all looking at the same video evidence.

A picture of alleged bruises exists, but they are not evidence that Corey caused them.

You've hit on an important point, what WAS the point of Andrew Breitbart's career? Credibility with the broader media and public? I doubt anyone would agree with that, even among his fans. He aggressively served truth to a niche market, with bigger implications for broader politics.

Anyways. I'm not sure if you are wishing them luck or not, but if they can get a reflection of the Trump movement, maybe they will get a lot more eyeballs and ads. Does popularity matter to them? Who knows. I'd rather they be a site with integrity, who doesn't let a literal family compact form without their readers realizing it.

848 I give this story 2 "mehs". I'm not a Trump guy, but I don't see any brutal assault on a woman.

To my eye, he was trying to catch up to the Trump entourage. She was in his way. He grabbed her upper arm and pulled her aside to get past her. I didn't see any motion that would indicate that he even grabbed her wrist, but you can't see everything. I did not see where she was yanked back hard enough to warrant her comments in the immediate aftermath.

I can easily see where he would say afterward that he didn't touch her. That type of contact would have been something that happened and then was done and was so inconsequential as to not register.

This is what I see: I see two people who have heard or seen Corey Landowskibe rough with people (especially given that one of the two was writing and article on that specific point). He then engages in an act that could have been that type behavior but was more likely incidental as I stated. It became what they believed it to be whether it actually was or not. Kerfluffle ensues.

852 Ace: "Meanwhile, Trump and Lowandowski's utter refusal to simply say "I saw someone coming quickly, I acted too hastily and grabbed her, I apologize" has now completely melted down Trump's only media ally, Breitbart."

In "Lonesome Dove", hard-ass Capt. Gus McCall tells his son "Never apologize; it's a sign of weakness." This could be the Trump motto. But in real life, we know that never apologizing is actually the sign of a weak and insecure man.

This episode reminds of Travelgate, where Hillary chose to Trump-up false charges against Billy Dale rather than
apologize. He went through hell just cos Dragon Lady didn't want to take a tiny pr hit.

Trump says he supported her for his business, but I think he gave her a hundred times more than he ever gave to veterans because they are alike, politically and personally. bullies. fakes. liberals.

But if he supported her just for business, that's
even worse; he sold us out simply to pad his bank account.

Watch it at regular speed. It's clear he yanked her out of the way. And the bruises indicate he probably grabbed her fairly hard. After being contacted by Breitbart, he could have easily given her a private apology that he's sorry if she got hurt. No admission of fault or anything.

Also, her description from her article doesn't match up with the event. Trump was walking by her when she asked the question. He didn't seem to answer and kept walking. She followed and that was when Lewandowski grabbed her armed, stopped her, and walked by.

From her article:
Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.

GM, exactly what I was thinking. It's pretty clear if you understand physics and watch how she comes down and around, then sort of has a stunned look on her face.

This is just common sense. But some folks just want to crush it to get an ego boost or prove themselves superior arbiters of all things reporter or Trump.

I think her reaction and that of the WaPo reporter corroborate what happened. No one indicated she was thrown to the floor or raped or whatever other nonsense some "think" they heard, but didn't.

Just unbelievable how something sort of just simple observation can be so mixed up with the heated arguments, etc.

I don't love reporters, but I've never seen a reporter, or a female reporter, jerked out of the way by a campaign official. That is quite unusual and if you're ok with that, then you and I just disagree.

Oh, did I mention she has a book coming out?

So, she tried to ask DJT a question as he was being escorted out of the room and she got shooed aside just like the 10 reporters before her and the 10 reporters after her. Was it Corey or the SS agent that did the shooing? Who gives a fuck. Whatever it was, it wasn't violent or horrible enough to wipe the smile off her face. So, no apology was necessary, and none was going to be given. It's a nothing burger. Take a bite.

It is not that surprising that during this GOP crack up, there was a cabal of Cruz supporters at BB News willing to conspire with leftists from the WP to fabricate an event that played into a desired narrative. (Trump is a misogynist that condones violence) It is just sad to see a writer like Ace, who I admire so much, so shamelessly promote such nonsense. It truly makes me sad.

I think the issue isn't the level of confrontation, but the denial and character assassination that followed. If it was so minor (and I think it was relatively minor an innocent) why engage it hateful polemics and character assassination afterward?

Posted by: Dagny at March 14, 2016 03:50 PM (WmLD5)

884 1) I agree that the safest and easiest course would have been to issue an apology. However,

2) I can't even tell from the video at which point she was "grabbed." As others have said, she was never "jerked" or even moved even in the slightest. Nor was there a wince or anything showing there was even the tiniest bit of pain or discomfort.

3) There is no way to justify her saying that she was even "almost" thrown to the floor if this is the moment that it happened. She never even budged. So she's clearly lying about being "jolted backward."

4) I agree that's entirely possible (and perhaps even probable) that the guy grabbed her. However, it is also clear that, if this is the moment in question, that she has taken "crying wolf" about how she was so horribly abused to an entirely new level.

5) I understand that this has clearly become anti-Trump territory, but it is possible for *BOTH* parties to be in the wrong here. The video does show that she has clearly lied about what exactly it was that happened, and her conversation with the WaPo reporter does show that she was indeed looking to be part of the story from the outset. So the Trump people have a point where that is concerned.

6) Enough with the white-knighting of Fields which is actually nothing more than just barely concealed anti-Trump stuff.

I'd vote for Cruz in a heartbeat, but I think Trump's ability to make progtards drop their masks is pretty much our last hope. But considering 2012.. well let's not despair. Because it's a sin.

Unbelievable. Trump is literally accosted by throngs of people everywhere he goes but the world needs to stop for some special snowflake named - Michelle Fields - who was treated like every other person who invades Trump's (a presidential candidate with SS protection) personal space.

Question for you: if this video is presented in such a way as to minimize the alleged battery upon Fields, and Ace is taking the position that, "yes, indeed, there was a battery upon Fields, and this video proves it", why did he not obtain and post a copy of the video at normal speed, which surely must be available?

890 Beg, you pardon would suffice if he had bumped into
her by accident. It does not suffice when he grabbed her. At that point,
he would really need to say "I am sorry I grabbed you."




Posted by: redbanzai at March 14, 2016 03:51 PM (y7/KB)

So she gets to barge into a security/staff entourage, without an apology, but her removal warrants a full blown apology. I can deal with it if you say that's her job, and my retort is that blocking her approach was his job, but you have anterior motives, so it's important to blow this up as a last ditch, pathetic, effort to stop Trump. The fact that you cover that fact up, while complaining that Trump attempted to cover up this event, appears to be nothing more than desperate flop sweat.

It's worse than that. Cruz triples down.



He never mentions that Trump has private events and is also is
talking about self defense for his supporters. Not starting anything but
finishing things - ***if need be. They chant for USA until security
comes.



Complete bullshit spin by Trump detractors.



Cruz is the lowest of the low for encouraging anti-Constitutional memes.

Campaign rallies are usually public events... some are ticketed events. If the protesters have tickets, they are not trespassing until told to leave. Also, there has been violence against protesters that were not violent first.

896 I will also say that the bruise marks on her arm looked suspiciously UNLIKE the bruises that would be left behind by someone grabbing your arm. What they DID look like was someone who grabbed her own arm with the fingertips of her opposite hand and squeezed really hard.

Take a look again at her supposed "proof." Those are very suspiciously NOT the elongated marks that most likely would have been left behind by the hand of a grown man (try grabbing your arm with your hand and think about how that bruising would look.) grabbing someone's arm.

I'm not saying that it's not possible that she was grabbed by his fingertips, but that is not how I would personally grab someone by the arm. It just seems extra suspicious in light of the lack of evidence of what she claimed was some kind of crazy assault on her person.

All that was wanted was an apology.

Corey Langoustini has no license to grab anybody. That fact is simple and true. If this had been Rahm grabbing a reporter, same analysis. Either Corey thinks nothing of such minor assault or was caught up in a hectic moment and not fully aware of his actions. Either case, he was wrong. We don't see the reporter's full reaction, let alone clearly. She says it was disconcerting and sufficiently rough to leave bruising. Makes sense to me. There is nothing in this video to show the reporter is "lying." You claim that she claims something worse happened to her, but that's not true. Corey needs to apologize and cease from grabbing anyone in the future.

Trump's rallies are PRIVATE events. He pays for the halls. He can kick out anyone he wants. When they disrupt they have obviously crossed the line from asshole to trespasser.

Before a rally starts his staff tells the audience NOT to take things into their own hands. Chant USA and security will handle things.

Some of these trespassers have swung at Trump supporters in Trump's PRIVATE event. There has only been ONE instance of a 'supporter' swinging back and I don't know all of the circumstances.

Trump is speaking like a man...self-defense is OK if you are threatened or hurt. That's it self-defense.

- Market Ticker

"Donald Trump, like all candidates for political office, rents his space for rallies and such. Nobody gives away aircraft hanger and football stadium time for free. He pays for it out of campaign funds he, or some group directly affiliated with him, controls."

"You do so with your home or business too. You pay rent or a mortgage. If you rent an apartment, house, hotel room, business location, or have a mortgage, you own, during the time of that rental or payment, that space."

SNIP

"That room is your property during that period of time and those other people came there under false pretense. They lied to you in order to gain admission as they had no intention in participating in the peaceful watching of the Superbowl."

"The same applies at your house or apartment, of course. If you invite me over to watch a movie and I instead decide that I'm going to try to prevent you from doing so by rising from my chair and displaying a nasty slogan on my shirt along with blocking your TV, and perhaps screaming epithets at the top of my lungs, you would throw me out."

Okay, I have to make a correction to my previous invisible comment.

I said that trajectory of Field's body did not change in the slightest.
I've carefully reviewed the footage about five times more.
My initial claim is NOT true.
As Lewandowski is passing Fields we can clearly see him raise his arm, from that motion it seems very likely that he touches her arm as he's passing her. (We can't see for certain that he touches her because of other bodies in the way. But certainly seems likely that he did.)
Keep in mind that Lewandowski is simply helping shepherd Trump through a throng as they were trying to leave. - That's obvious enough.
But as he passes her, Fields does slow down and then finally faces a different direction. While it's possible she changed her trajectory for some other reason than Lewandowski touching her, it certainly seems very unlikely.

But, again, something else that we can clearly see is the look on Field's face. She clearly does not look distressed or even concerned - let alone in any kind of pain.

And there is yet another thing we can clearly see. Assuming the very likely case that Lewandowski did touch Fields and that's why she slowed down: she was obviously NOT almost thrown to the ground.
- And that was her claim. She has repeatedly emphasized that the grab was so forceful that she was nearly thrown to the ground. This video clearly puts the lie to her claim.

That Lewanbowski did not recall the briefest of moments when he likely touched Fields as he and his candidate were trying to exit and having to navigate a throng is not surprising.
Why would he recall that moment?
Had he actually violently grabbed her and nearly thrown her to the ground - AS SHE HAS REPEATEDLY AND EMPHATICALLY CLAIMS HE DID - then there would be no way he could forget it.
Then there would be reason for Trump to fire him and for everyone else to expect Trump to fire him. (And not just for being a brute but for lying about it.)

But that's not what happened. What's happened is that Michelle Fields has taken an innocuous mole hill and tried to lie her way into turning it into an evil Mount Mordor.
- And she's been caught doing it.

939 hmmmm...

It appears that my ban may have been lifted.
If so, I want to make clear that it was not only fair that I was banned but that I would have no complaint if the ban had lasted many months or even if it had been a permanent ban.

Having lost someone very close to me recently, I had used the occasion as an incredibly stupid excuse to binge drink (which in no way helped my sorrow) and then to double down on stupidity I chose to comment on-line in that inebriated state. But there can be no excuse for making bad decisions and becoming an online dickwad.
So - YET ONCE AGAIN - I'm sorry and will endeavor to do better.

Being allowed to comment here has never been a right for anyone but ace. It's only ever been a wholly unearned privilege that ace has been generous enough to share with anonymous individuals - assuming they can conduct themselves appropriately enough in what and how they choose to say.

So, if my ban really as been lifted: thanks again, ace. I don't deserve it. If not, believe me when I say, I understand. And will keep reading and sometimes invisibly-commenting anyway.

(And yes, either way, I still owe Maetneloch an apology. - Which I will take the occasion to make the next time I'm online during one of his ONTs.)

...an awkward by the way clarification: my emphasizing that I "yet once again" apologize is not because I've been invisible-comment apologizing a whole bunch and so now it's about time that the ban has finally been lifted. (Like I said, it wouldn't have surprised me if I'd never been allowed back. - Especially since I had drunkenly asked for exactly that. - Which I later regretted.)

Rather, it was to emphasize that it sucks that I have on several occasions given ace and company good reason to ban my comments. - And so they have.
But it's embarrassing to have to admit that. (Even anonymously under _Dave_ or Trump Super Fan or under any other pseudonym.)

Anyway, here's to redoubling efforts to do better - or otherwise be banned.

Leaving aside your question-begging assertions that 1) Fields was battered, and 2) anyone who doesn't think Fields was battered is arguing that women should be subject to battery, I'm convinced that 90% of the hoopla about this little drama is driven by white-knightery.

Ask yourself this: If what happened to Fields had happened instead to a cigar-chomping, crusty old beat reporter named, I dunno, Ralph, would anyone on earth, including Ralph, even be talking about it? Would Ralph and his detractors and supporters be appearing on FOX and CNN for days afterwards?

@ comment #943,

Oh, Maet! You're here!

I apologize, sir.
Though I was very drunk, I remember that you were kind enough to warn me that I was getting out of line. I acknowledged the warning and promised to leave off for the night. - And I meant that when I wrote it. But being drunk, my impulse control was next to nil, and so my promise while sincere had an extremely short shelf-life. And that's no excuse, but that's precisely what happened.
By not heeding your fair and generous warning and by not keeping to my word that I was done commenting for the night, I disrespected you.
And for that I am sorry.

Would you please post your email address here in this comment thread. I'm sure it's listed somewhere on the webpage but I don't know where that is.

951 The reporter looks as if she is mildly moved aside. To the point of moving an say step back. Normal crowd bump and grind.

Looking at that video you provided, there doesn't appear to be any violenc, intentional or otherwise. Certainly not to match the over-the-top rhetoric of the reporterette and others.

952 Ace remember that comment you made about people having an embarassment limit? This post, where you shamelessly lie for Fields, who was proven to be a fraud with the video you just posted is where I hit my embarassment limit. I'm one of the people (and I feel stupid and humiliated for having done so) who thought Fields was telling the truth despite her history and the suspicious lack of evidence (it turns out part of that is because Ben Terris, the sole eyewitness to the event ordered his photopgrpher to lie and claim he wasn't even there). She said, and had her surrogates say, that she was thrown down. She wasn't. Nor was she even jerked back. She was moved out of the way by some guy who wanted to get past her. I am genuinely embarassed I've been reading and promoting this web site for almost a decade and even forked over 5 bucks despite the fact that I'm a dirt poor student with no income. I'm not gonna stop reading because I'm a masochist but I am coming to terms with the fact that the high regard in which I held you is no longer justifiable to me.

She could bruise easily. Or she had one of her co-conspirators do it. We already know some level of fraud was involved because Jabin Botsford (WaPo photographer) first claimed he wasn't at the event, then when shown that he took a picture right before the incident changed his story and admitted he just didn't hear or see any assault (presumably telling the truth could get him in trouble with te WaPo).

Landowski randomly grabbed and yanked a woman hard enough to leave bruises. But that's not assault and the woman is a lying whore because TRUMP2016!!!!!!!

So is that kind of minor assault a yuuuuge deal (Click) or absolutely nothing (Landowski). Because right now y'all seem like a bunch of hypocrites.

No, it wouldn't matter if Fields was Hulk Hogan. Trump suggested his supporters engage in violent responses multiple times, and offered to pay the legal bills of one who took him up on it. That's a pattern.

Violence might fly in the Democratic primary, but this is the Grand Old Party, and Trump was already radioactive with independents.

It's getting harder and harder to support Trump in the general.

JT @ #609,

There is a categorical difference between what Melissa Click did and what Corey Lewandowski did.

Click got in the kid's face and told him he was obligated to leave the public area that he was reporting on. He was not under any such obligation, and he made it clear that he had a right to be there. That's when she attempted to physically remove him. She called for muscle. Threatening to use unwarranted physical force on someone is also considered a form of assault in criminal law.

Lewandowski was trying to help his candidate, Trump, leave a PRIVATE venue that Trump had rented. Fields had no right to persist on obtaining an unwelcome interview with Trump as he was EXITING a venue that Trump had rented.
Fields, like everyone else was there with Trump's PERMISSION at his event - that he was in the process of leaving.
Moreover, there was no confrontation between Lewandowski and Fields. No words are exchanged. It doesn't even appear that they ever look directly at each other.
Lewandowski is merely passing by her to catch up with his candidate, Trump, as they attempt to exit through a throng of people. It appears he probably touched her arm as he passed by her - and that's why she slows down and gives up the chase.
She is obviously NOT being assaulted. No threat was hurled. There is not even a brief confrontation between the two. She is obviously not in pain.

Rather, the video footage shows that Michelle Field's claim that she was grabbed an pulled so hard that she was almost thrown to the ground IS A COMPLETE AND ABJECT LIE.

Now, she's been caught in that lie. And that's the plain truth of the matter.

972 Melissa Click was charged under http://www.moga.mo.gov/mostatutes/stathtml/56500000701.HTML . I always assumed she was charged for violating subdivision 5, due to her pushing the kid's camera (which would be an actual assault). If it was actually under subdivision 3 then that would be a grotesque, bullshit political abuse of justice and your support for it would be proving my point perfectly.

Yes, there is a categorical difference. You like Trump's staff, you don't like Click, so one stupid bullshit misdemeanor assault is cool and the other is the worst thing ever. Unless you are correct about Click's assault charge, in which case you're super excited about somebody being charged for a vague threat of maybe committing misdemeanor assault while excusing somebody who actually committed misdemeanor assault.

No, Landowski was caught in a lie. He said he never touched her. HE LIED.

Fields claimed she was grabbed (true), pulled downwards (also true) so hard that she stumbled and almost lost her balance (also true--you can see her wobbling to correct her balance). So Landowski straight up lied, Fields didn't, but TRUMP2016!!!!! so whatever.

973 "I didn't join the conservative movement to become a fascist." -Ace

How about this, then? Fuck you. Join that.

And since Cruz/Rubio people like to issue threats about not voting, here's one for you:

Unless Ted Cruz "repudiates" cocksuckers like you, who very strongly imply Trump supporters have joined a Fascist Movement, for voting for Trump in the Primary, I'm not voting for him in the General Election.

See, we can do it too. And I have my "principles" too, one of which is to not support people/things that obviously hate me.
Rubio I was never voting for anyway, I won't bullshit the Rubio people on that. No more neocons. But Cruz I would even have sent money to.

Interestingly for history buffs, getting accused of being a fascist by Gore Vidal is what set WF Buckley off on TV that time.

Speaking of which, assuming Cruz somehow becomes the nominee, how is he going to lawyer his way out of it when he's asked, in the debate with Hillary, by Candy Crowley "But Senator Cruz, how can you deny that the Republican Party is a den of Fascism and Racism, when even your own ardent supporters, like Ace of Spades, admitted over 1/3 of the Party were following a fascist?"

Obviously, she'll/they'll use someone more famous than you, Ace, since you're basically a fucking nobody, but you get my point.

PS- You have admitted before to lying in posts to further your political ends (e.g., lying to benefit GOPe politicians because the "War on Terror was too important"). Now you're lying about Trump, because you think Cruz can save the Country, and Trump might hurt it.

I do not think these lies will work out well for you.. Either in the sense of Cruz getting the Nom, or of you not having to get a day job.

If its not a big deal, then apologizing is not a big deal.

---

There was no cover up, since it was "no big deal." If it's no big deal, then no apology necessary. The video shows nothing out of the ordinary with a crowd of people and a reporter trying to get close to a candidate as he is leaving the arena. It wasn't question and answer time.

If the reporter had been a man, no issue. If the gentle flower can't handle something like this, maybe she should get another job. Reporters should report, not make themselves the story.

I'm taking a reverse tip from the anti-Trump crowd: If Trump doesn't get the nomination, I'm voting Hilary. Before BS outrage over this nothing burger I would've pulled the lever for Cruz, but no more.

JT and others,

Incidentally, I do not believe that Lewandowski lied.
I believe there's no reason he'd remember touching Field's as he made his way through a tightly packed throng of people desperately vying for the attention of the candidate, Trump, he's supposed to be helping leave the venue.

Why would he remember that nothing-burger moment?
Have you ever been to a packed concert? Or a subway station? Or any number of other plausibly crowded places?
Do you remember every jostle, nudge, or bump you experienced when you were there? - Please.

When Lewandowski tweeted something to the effect of "I never touched you", that was in direct response to Field's going on TV and making the LYING claim that he had grabbed her and nearly thrown her to the ground.
There is no way he could have forgotten had he done something obnoxious like that. And then his claim of never having touched her would indeed be a lie.

If instead Fields had taken to the TV airwaves and said that Lewandowski had "touched" her arm in the middle of crowd reporters and fans following Trump has he was leaving the building, it never would have caught Lewandowski's attention. Indeed it never would have caught ANYONE'S attention.
No one would have been slightly interested in the nothing-burger moment it has now been revealed to be.
When you publicly accuse someone of violently grabbing you and nearly throwing you to the ground (when in fact they did not), I have no problem with that someone coming out and responding with "Hey, I don't even know you. I never touched you."
When it later turns out that all he did was INCIDENTALLY touch you as he was passing by you to catch up with the candidate he is supposed to be helping to protect and exit the venue, that doesn't make him a liar.
Again, there is no reason anyone would remember that nothing-burger moment.

Lewandowski was responding to the now UTTERLY EXPOSED LIE made by Michelle Fields that he had attacked her. - That he violently grabbed her arm and nearly thrown her to the ground.

But you Trump Haters aren't about to believe your lying eyes, are you?
Oh no. You desperately need to concoct the fantasy that Trump is a thug who employs thugs.

Fine. Have at your fantasies. But don't expect us to participate in them.

Based on ace's initial description of the new footage, I was prepared to condemn Lewandowski and join in the call for Trump to fire him.
Then I clicked on "continue reading" and clicked on the video and saw the new footage. And it was plain as day that Michelle Field's was LYING about having nearly been thrown to the ground. Which in turn makes it plain that Lewandowski was responding to this obvious LIE made up by someone he doesn't even know - and was not responding to an incidental touch that does remotely resemble the BLATANT LIE repeatedly told on him on television.

Why don't you try some self intellectual honesty and ask yourself how you'd feel if a friend of yours was in Lewandowski's place? I wonder if you'd blame your friend for responding to the obvious lie that he had violently grabbed someone so hard that he had nearly thrown them to the ground by saying "I don't know her. I never touched her"?

If you say you would, then either you're not being honest with yourself, or you're not much of a friend.

990 I didn't see a yank. (Technically I didn't even see physical contact; I had to infer it - although based on what I know of physics and of the female skeletal system, I'll concede that's a safe inference.)

The most I can infer is that a woman rushed toward Trump and someone blocked the woman somewhere around the elbow. The woman then stopped, with an "aback" expression on her face. The crowd then moved on, oblivious that anything untoward happened.

This is not an assault. This is, at most, what any bouncer does at the mosh pit. Journalists rushing for unscheduled interviews are, exactly, a mosh pit; they have ceased to be journalists, and are now paparazzi.

Trump needs to apologise for precisely nothing.

tryptic @ comment # 991,

I can't share that sentiment. While I strongly disagree with ace and others here at Ace of Spades about Trump and about Michelle Field's hoax specifically, I can EASILY get over the disagreement and not hold it against them. (I don't think they need forgiveness because just holding fast to a grossly distorted viewpoint is not in itself a wrongdoing.)

And that's not just because they have forgiven me for the multiple times I have displayed sad jack-assery and inappropriately insulted fellow-commenters here in their comment threads (regardless of who started it).

I can look past this gross misjudgment on their part because in the fervor of a heated political season, viewpoints can get distorted.
Hell, the first time I watched the new video footage, I was CERTAIN that if Michelle Fields had been touched you wouldn't know it based on the direction her body was moving. Then I watched it again and saw that her body clearly had changed speed and direction in perfect timing with the reaching arm motion of Corey Lewandowski.

- The heat of the topic had caused me to not clearly see all the pertinent details of what actually happened. I think it's pretty clear that Lewandowski touched her even though we can't see the contact.

Ace and others are likely to stick with this silly claim that Lewandowski behaved like a thug (even the video footage utterly contradicts that) and then liked about it.
It's a heated time in our politics. And things are going to get said that rub us and others the wrong way. The key is not to take them personally and so forswear each other over them.
In fact, THAT WILL BE VITAL to Trump winning in November.
He's said a lot of things that have rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. But we're going to have to unite as a party if we're going to keep Hillary (or whoever replaces her) out of the White House.

I encourage everyone who disagrees with ace on this and other similar Trump issues not to write him off or be forever disappointed in him over it.

I can tell you first hand (and from very recent experience) that ace and other hosts here at Ace of Spades are very generous in spirit. I know ace uses a deliciously acerbic tongue to denigrate enemies of conservatism and public assholes in general. But he doesn't hold a grudge.
And there's no reason to hold a grudge against him over a disagreement - even a very important one.

This particular issue will pass and there will be plenty of issue and ideology simpatico in the future.
You'll see.

Trump would rather burn down an ally than have his campaign manager confess to have briefly, wrongly grabbed a girl trying to ask Trump a question.

So, yeah, would-be Trump allies like the GOP, conservative movement, or immigration-restrictionist movement: I'd be super-eager to sign up to march under Trump's banner. I'm sure it will all turn out well for you. He'll definitely have your back when you need him too.

1003 Seems like with the "old Ace", if he showed a video, it would actually prove what he was saying it proved. Maybe this is a Dread Pirate Roberts situation? I guess we'll stay tuned...

My own interpretation is that Fields (who I generally like) is a bit of a princess who got handled in a push-and-shove crowd in a way that was less than worshipful, and when some leftist propagandist asked if he could use her to make a big deal out of her nothingburger she said "Hell, yeah" instead of using her common sense and telling him to go f himself.

Basically, she made herself a turncoat without even realizing it through her own narcissism and elitism, which is probably why the Trump camp is unsympathetic (the turncoat part). Maybe she can go sit next to S. E. Cupp on MSNBC after this.

It's just elitist bullshit. A vulgarian juggernaut is beating the shit out of one "conservative" icon after another and is dragging all of the sophists into the sunlight. This is actually a good thing, but you wouldn't know it around here.

Who knew that Conservatism--as we know it--was all just part of one big fucking con to preserve the power of a menacing oligarchy.

People giving their lives to contribute to that oppressive charade will find that a mercenary's reward won't be worth it. In Blood Meridian, Judge Holden says that everything in this world is for sale. Maybe not with money only. Reputation and the respect of peers is a powerful draw too. Deep down, I suspect that but for divine intervention, Judge Holden merely describes the way of the world.

But it is sad to see it repeatedly confirmed.

1006 I didn't realize Ace was a cuckservative.

1007 Look, hvV01; "cuckservative" won't get you anywhere. It's a term of abuse; it's troll shit. It'll just get ace's back up. It's getting MY back up and my position is on the side of the bouncer here.

1008 And I'm watching this video on full speed and that's exactly what I see - a gentle bounce of a pushy paparazza.

1009 Well, I'd say Trumps people are owed an apology. This reporter quite clearly lied about the severity and circumstances of the contact, she was not yanked anywhere, her ARM was pulled back to make way for Corey to get past her. She was not nearly thrown to the ground. She lied to make a nothing event into an anti-Trump story.

And now that I've had to spend more time reading about this bullshit and now that the video clearly shows she is the one telling tales, it makes me wonder about the rest of her story too. Those bruises look awfully like the finger pattern of a person grabbing their own arm and not at all like the pattern you'd expect from someone else grabbing you. How exactly did Corey exert so much force on the OUTSIDE of her arm when his fingers would have been on the inside of her arm to grip it firmly.

This whole thing stinks to high heaven. It smells like a reporter used a nothing event to create and anti-Trump story with the possibility of self-inflicting a little "evidence" to goose things along. She lied about what happened, I see no reason to take her word for it about anything else now.

1010 I'm not a Trump supporter, but having now seen the multiple camera angles and stills, there is little doubt that there was no assault as she asserted.

The claim that she was waiting for an apology is equally false as she gave the execrable WaPo reporter permission to use her quote within seconds of the incident; her wackjob boyfriend was making accusations on social media shortly after.

If you couple her previous history with false claims about being beaten by cops and equally spurious claims against Allen West, what you have here is a fabulist that more interested in being the news than covering the news. And that is wrong whether it is a liberal or 'conservative' 'reporter'.

That is why, contrary to what others have said, if Breitbart were still alive, both her and Shapiro would have had been on the street pronto with Andrew's bootprints implanted on their posteriors.

Yeah, full speed doesn't make it look worse. Why ace is doubling down on this I don't know. Nothing even close to serious happened her. She didn't talk to anyone privately and ace hasn't shown that she did. It's stupid.

1012 Lame! What a damn disappointment you are ACE and SHAPIRO. Un favoriting your stupid site. Geezuz there is nothing sacred in this world.

1013 Really Ace? You're making a story out of this?

Did Andrew Sullivan take over AoS?

Posted by: JoeNYC at March 15, 2016 10:27 AM (MCCiz)

1014 Seriously lets blow this up and call in forensics. A brown bruise shown right after an assault? That's seven to ten days old. It would be bright red, purple and blue and other signs of injury if as violent as she says.

People lie ACE. You fall for the mattress girl lies too? She has a mattress on her head and she's a girl, a victim. She can't be lying no matter if there is a video.

I can't see any evidence of malice or egregious force. SHE'S BUMPED AT BEST. Feel free to point out again how she was body slammed.

Why would you post a video that contradicts what you say?

1015 If Ace searches my post history he will see I am clearly a full on Cruz supporter.

This video doesn't show what Ace says it does.

Her facial expression is totally neutral throughout, her mouth doesn't even open.

This story is a fraud, Ace.
