    Consider the boss. Is anyone surprised?

    Florida police have charged Donald Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with simple assault in connection with an incident earlier in the month involving a reporter.

    Meanwhile, Michael Brown's stepfather continues to escape prosecution for inciting to riot and commit arson in Ferguson two Novembers ago. Please to remember; this ain't goin' away.

    Is Michael Brown's stepfather running for president?

    Or is the stepfather being investigated for fraud in the failure of an entire university venture? Whereas Hillary Clinton is being pilloried by Republicans for political purposes for use of email that is now revealed to have been identical to practices of previous Secretaries of State, and other Cabinet officials.

    But the issue today is Trump's bully campaign manager (ah, a match made in Heaven). With new video evidence, that Trump and his manager are still lying to deny.

    Ah, well, Trump's supporters will continue to ignore facts & reality. As do his RJ supporters. About this and many other things. And will Trump and his people be able to resist their usual pattern of sexually insulting this female reporter who was injured? Another nail in Trump's female voter coffin.

    And the irony is that she was an extreme Right, Breitbart reporter. Not from the usual exaggerated Libreral targets of Trump and the Right. If Trump should win the Republican nomination it will be fun watching him go 100% psycho. He's at about 90% now.

    I was going to post here that there is nothing to see, the charge is totally ridiculous (grabbing her briefly by her arm because she blocked him from following Trump) but I see you politi-nerds have already moved on.

    That is beside the point. Michael Brown's stepfather is still basically a criminal who had gotten away with arson and inciting a riot. He should have been prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    There it is. This bullshit comes from both sides and anyone who says it doesn't is willfully ignorant.

    Let's see, Donald Trump stands by his right-hand man who is charged with criminal assault of a woman. (After video shows Trump's man lied about "never having touched her")
    I guess in Trump-Land this is okay?

    This will all play very well with women in the general election. icon_lol.gif

    I've seen the video from every direction including overhead, and this is the most BOGUS case I've ever seen. I've seen rougher assaults at a BLACK FRIDAY shopping spree. The reporter should be ashamed of herself. Kudos to Trump for standing up for his campaign manager who was clearly unjustly charged

    The bitch had her hands on Trump. She should have been arrested and cuffed!

    I've seen the video. I think a lot of people in that crowded room should be charged with assault. A lot of bumping, touching, grabbing....
    And I've seen celebrities with their bodyguards protecting them against throngs of paparazzi... I guess they should be charges with assault too.

    In cases of simple battery, a complaint needs to come from the alleged victim and most people simply don't bother. General human interactions, such as jostling in a crowd or gently tapping someone to attract their attention, are not battery, but deliberately and forcibly grabbing someone, however fleetingly, generally is. If Trump's Secret Service detail feel the need to physically intervene to protect him, that's one thing, but the rest of his retinue need to learn to keep their grubby little hands off people.

    Yeah, now that I saw it in high definition. He did grab her arm. So the arrest is warranted.
    Now it gives me idea, if someone grab my arm because I approach someone to ask a question, I could get him/her arrested with assault, as long as I file complaint.
