The latest fake meme being spun by the media is that Trump rallies are dangerous and unsafe. The media are treated like cattle or worse. The obvious desired effect is to stop people from attending Trump rallies out of irrational fear and to brand Trump and his supporters as racist, sexist and insensitive. Now a reporter named Michelle Fields is pushing it one step further. She is making wild claims that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski assaulted her. Did it it happen or is it a hoax?
Fields posted a picture of a bruised arm claiming that Lewandowski caused it. There is also an audio <a href=”http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-media/2016/03/transcript-corey-lewandowski-breitbart-reporter-attack-220589″>published by Politico</a>. But it sounds to me like a couple of reporters trying to whip up a nothing incident into an outrage. I realize that’s their job but this borders on the farcical. Clearly Fields approached Lewandowski seeking comment and was brushed off. There is no evidence that Ms. Fields was treated any differently or targeted (as she suggests) due to her gender. Her narrative is false.
Lewandowski responded with a blanket denial
There’s only small problem for Michelle Fields. Or perhaps two. She has no video evidence to support her claims and she has a history of making fraudulent accusations. Add this to the ongoing battle by the progressive left media and Republican Establishment who want to take Trump down and you have a highly suspicious situation. Cruz supporter Charles C. Johnson at Gotnews.com in an article entitled, “<a href=”http://gotnews.com/calling-bullshit-michelle-fields/”>We’re Calling Bullshit on Michelle Fields</a>” explains her history of false accusations. She is obviously a troubled individual let’s hope she gets help.
<blockquote>Last month Breitbart’s Michelle Fields falsely accused me of hacking her computer after she sent me a LinkedIn request and I called her. Not only was this absurd to accuse another reporter of a federal crime but she didn’t correct her tweet about it until I called her bosses at Breitbart and forced her to. No apology, nothing. That kind of pissed me off. I mean she’s hot but not accuse you of a federal crime hot. I guess <a href=”http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=GOTIS”>GOTIS</a> really is a thing.
Anyway, I called her because several months before that I published a story about how she had been sexually assaulted by former congressman (and her former colleague) Allen West. She wanted to be a source, then she didn’t, then she did, then she didn’t. It got exhausting, so I published what I had and called it a day. She freaked out and called me over and over again until I put a crappy update in it. I didn’t want to make life difficult for a victim, after all. (I still believe that West assaulted women, but I don’t know if I believe Michelle Fields. If she cared so much about the victims why did she waffle?)
I’ve since been told that she claimed she was assaulted when she worked for Students for Liberty and threatened the organization when they asked her to do work.</blockquote>
Field’s main ambition is to make herself famous over this story. To some extent, it’s worked.
Fields was desperate to insert herself in the story. Thus she was devasted that it was not mentioned during the March 10, 2016 CNN Republican debate. Her smear fell flat on its face.
The fact that this reporter is a serial hoaxer however, seems to be lost on desperate Cruz backers like Ben Shapiro. The frothing and insane responses to this are symbolic of the desperation the #nevertrump folks feel right now. Ben is having a career defining meltdown over his dislike of Donald Trump. He’ll do anything to trash Trump and support his guy Ted Cruz.
Just a few tidbits from boy wonder Ben’s timeline; it’s filled with seething self-righteous rage.
This tempest in a teapot is just another desperate smear attempt by the GOPe. A suicide attack by the media, who are used to having their smears and lies work and succeed in getting ‘undesirable’ candidates knocked out. Trump is different and won’t tolerate the endless lies and baseless attacks. If Ms. Fields feels aggrieved she needs to file a police report and press charges, not grandstand on twitter. You mean she didn’t file a police report and go on the record? Why not?
But let’s not lose sight of the obvious. These endless lies and smears directed at Trump are just mean spirited attempts to nullify the will of the electorate. They want to paint Trump as a monster. Their second or third rate ‘news’ organizations are simply extensions of the GOP establishment and or the Demcratic National Committee. They are biased against Trump and have hated him<a href=”http://www.nationalreview.com/article/419853/witless-ape-rides-escalator-kevin-d-williamson”> since day one</a>. Entire issues have been written “<a href=”http://www.nationalreview.com/article/430137/donald-trump-conservative-movement-menace”>Against Trump</a>”. They want to brand Trump as a misogynist, racist, Islamaphobe and any other smear possible. They want to play pin the tail on the donkey with Trump but he’s not having it.
What has infuriated them the most, however, is that Trump has gone around them completely by using social media and cable news to get his message out. Thus these reporters are no longer gatekeepers of information and shapers of the election and it’s driving them over the edge. They know if Trump gets elected they will spend the next 8 years watching his successful administration while they pine bitterly on the sidelines. They foolishly thought some puppet like Jeb!, Rubio or Ted! was going to be their access to power and influence. Face it guys, it’s over.
A picture has surfaced which completely debunks her claims. Thank you #twitter
And Breitbart has done its due diligence and <a href=”http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/03/11/trump-presser-ben-terris-misidentified/”>exonerated Lewandowski</a>. However a security guard (secret service?) appears to be rather aggressive in his defense of Trump. But Field’s claim of injury are suspect at best as noted by Breitbart.
<blockquote>In addition, the injury may have been accidental, owing simply to the chaos of the press scrum. A video filmed by a local CBS reporter earlier in the evening shows Fields standing near Trump and the same security official, with no concern or alarm on the part of Trump campaign staff.
Fields relied in good faith on Terris’s confirmation, and later assertions, that the person who touched her was Lewandowski. But he cited no other source to prove his claim, neither at the time nor in the <i>Washington Post</i>.</blockquote>
Once again Michelle Fields has embellished a situation and attempted to use it to smear Trump and achieve notoriety for herself. Seems in line with her previous hoaxes.
