When you consider the months of boorish behavior from Donald Trump, can one really be surprised when that behavior rubs off on his staff?
How else does one explain Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski assaulting Breitbart.com reporter Michelle Fields following his press conference on Tuesday night? The incident has been captured on audio.
How else does one explain the efforts of the Trump campaign to defame Fields' character and reputation rather than discipline Lewandowski?
If Trump can pull off stunts without consequence, his staff figures they can do the same.
Dislike the media to your heart's content. But there's just no excuse for what happened. Fields is not only with a media outlet sympathetic to Trump, she was hardly doing anything out of the ordinary. I fail to see how posing a question to Trump about affirmative action warrants being physically accosted never mind engaging in defamation.
