The Trump campaign continued gaslighting Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields on Thursday, who has accused campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of grabbing her so hard she was left bruised. “Perhaps she made the story up,” Trump told CNN’s Dylan Byers. “I think that’s what happened.”
Despite overwhelming evidence that what Fields said happened did in fact happen—and setting aside the fact that Fields works for a publication that is remarkably friendly to Trump, and therefore has even less reason to lie about something like this than someone normally would—the Trump campaign has quintupled-down on its version of events.
@MichelleFields you are totally delusional. I never touched you. As a matter of fact, I have never even met you.— Corey Lewandowski (@CLewandowski_) March 11, 2016
Trump just accused Michelle Fields of faking her bruises in the debate spin room in case cable news would like to wake the fuck up— Stephen Gutowski (@StephenGutowski) March 11, 2016
