Skip to comments.White House rips Trump for standing by aide charged with battery

White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Wednesday condemned Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump
Corey Lewandowski is accused of grabbing the arm of a reporter after a Trump press conference in Florida earlier this month.
I am confident that neither President Obama nor President Bush would tolerate someone on their staff being accused of physically assaulting a reporter, lying about it and then blaming the victim, Earnest told reporters.
Earnest said Trump's response to the Lewandowski incident, as well his other controversial actions, is "completely outside the realm of acceptable behavior.

The charge of simple battery is bogus
it will be pleaded down to a double parking ticket, pay a $200 fine plus court costs and that will be the end of it
just a money grab by locals
Those white house values.
“Proof positive the Left is scared $hitless about a Trump candidacy.”.....
Their house of cards is about to fall and Trump is the one shaking the table. All the more reason to vote Trump.
Obama had Bill Clinton campaigning for him.
If he really believes this then shouldn’t an independent prosecutor be appointed in the matter of Hillary’s e-mails?
In related news-(CNN)President Barack Obama commuted the prison sentences of 61 people who were serving time for drug offenses,
Obama is, or was, friends with Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dorn, and Rev Wright.
It will probably be thrown out without any fine.
Its done its damage and demonstrated the failings of the Trump campaign.
If Trump had immediately fired him, the WH would probably say, “see Trump doesn’t stand by his campaign manager in a ridiculous charge, how can you trust someone like that to have the country’s back when times get tough.” Cruz, of course, would be saying the exact same thing.
It should not go that far and I don't think it will. The fact that Trump stands by his people and is not swayed by the mob is a badge of honor in my mind.
Unbelievable that so many people take a charge of “grabbing the arm of a reporter after a Trump press conference in Florida earlier this month” seriously as any sort of happening at all.
Corey must be doing something right!
Having no loyalty themselves, these pols don’t understand Trump’s history of loyalty to friends and employees.
Wasn’t President Bush warned against getting involved in the 2008 presidential campaign?
“neither President Obama nor President Bush”
I see that the Obama spokesperson now speaks for the Bushes also. The big government leeches are all consolidating in the effort to defeat Trump.
I am also positive that Trump or President Bush would not cover up for Hillary like obama does
Corey undoubtedly has to peal off 50 or 60 people a day from Trump. That Ms. Fields files charges says a lot more about Ms. Fields. Hopefully she will never work again as a journalist.
What failures of the Trump Campaign?
It is just another MSM/Uniparty Trick
Most people have wrote this off as nonsense
“Earnest said Trump’s response to the Lewandowski incident, as well his other controversial actions, is “completely outside the realm of acceptable behavior.””
Sorry Josh, but you don’t decide those things. What an arrogant jerk! If he expects the American people to be in universal agreement with that statement then he’s got another thing coming.
