Let’s be clear, the fact that Corey Lewandowski was arrested is absurd, but so is the idea that he did nothing wrong…
A Florida prosecutor has decided not to prosecute Donald Trump’s campaign manager for battery after a March run-in with former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, sources with knowledge of the situation told POLITICO.
The decision not to press charges against Corey Lewandowski is scheduled to be announced on Thursday afternoon by Palm Beach County State Attorney David Aronberg.
Fields may still pursue a defamation case against Lewandowski, a source said.
Fields filed a police report last month after Lewandowski grabbed her by the arm and moved her out of Trump’s way following a press conference at Trump National Gold Club in Jupiter. She said he left bruises on her arm. Police later charged Lewandowski with simple battery, releasing video from surveillance cameras that shows Lewandowski reaching for and grabbing Fields.
Had this been an Obama/Hillary aide who grabbed a reporter and yanked her talk radio wouldn’t be questioning the validity this and pretend nothing happened. Pathetic behavior by talk radio on this, just like all Trump scandals.
Michael Savage, Sean Hannity, a ton of local hosts, and until recently, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin have bent over backwards to explain, justify and rationalize Donald Trump’s toxic personality, terrible behavior and incoherent policy positions.
As someone who has done talk radio for 12+ years, I have found it to be completely embarrassing. Talk radio, as long as I have been doing it, has told everyone listening that conservatism was the key to a better government but now the industry has generally bought in to the idea that celebrity and the chaos Donald Trump can bring is more important than his background, consistency or sanity. In order to do this and placate a vocal mob of malcontents that want to burn it all down, a majority of talk radio host have checked their credibility, honesty and intelligence at the door.
But I am not naive, I understand that Donald J. Trump is the clear Republican front-runner. As a talk show host, I talk to people every day who support this man and a majority of them fall in one of three groups:
- People who are angry, so angry they are not thinking straight.
- People who say “Donald Trump is saying the things I think but can’t say”. These people think Trump is speaking for them; these people belong in mental institutions.
If you are offended by this group being listed here and think I am talking to you, I probably am.
Groups 2 and 3 are a lost cause, the angry people are not.
Not a day goes by where I don’t hear from a listener to my talk show tell me that they are angry, and they tell me they are tired of having to hold their nose and vote for Mitt Romney(s) and John McCain(s) instead of “true conservatives”. I have been hearing some variation of this from the moment McCain lost in ’08.
I’ve been trying, and failing, to explain to my audience that this is an incredibly illogical way to choose a nominee. If the issue truly is, as described, that the candidates are not true conservatives, then how the hell did these people end up supporting Donald Trump?
If Marco Rubio’s Gang of 8 bill and now Ted Cruz’s wife’s employment at Goldman Sachs make them fake conservative, how do these people excuse Trump’s past record?
He brags about using his money to buy influence. He did this by giving money to prominent liberals, to include the Gang of 8’s Harry Reid and his most likely opponent Hillary Clinton. He wanted a taxpayer-funded single-payer healthcare system. He calls the Iran deal the worst deal he has ever seen but in 2015 he said he wouldn’t tear it up. He has been “very pro-choice”. He supports tariffs of up to 45% while making his own goods in foreign countries.
Not proof enough that he is a campaign conservative? Maybe he had a change of heart?
But… you’re mad.
How about the fact that he is a terrible person?
He blamed Pamela Gellar when her anti-Islam event was attacked by terrorists, he wanted to use eminent domain to take a woman’s house, he used our bankruptcy laws to walk away from his failed ventures while leaving others holding the bag. And while he doesn’t condone violence on his political foes, he surely doesn’t care that it is happening.
But… you’re mad.
On top of all these issues, the man is pathological liar. Even Ben Carson, who has endorsed Trump, says that even Trump does not believe the things he says.
He is an unprincipled loudmouth.
Again, I understand, conservatives are mad about stuff.
I also know that conservatives already know all the things I just told you but you’re mad and you don’t care.
Great…but here is a reality check for you, no one makes good decisions when they are pissed off. How often do we hear people tell us that they did something REALLY moronic because they were so mad they weren’t thinking straight?
This is what Republicans are doing right now and it is terrifying.
Primary voters are so angry they are not thinking straight. And IF this continues, America could wake up in November with a President Trump, but the more likely scenario is we will end up with a President Clinton and we will ask ourselves, “How could we be so stupid?”
Donald Trump will never be President.
