After his big win last night Donald Trump brings campaign manager who manhandled female reporter on stage with him. You know, because he can.

Courtesy of Slate:  

Lewandowski doesn't usually stand by Trump's side during election night addresses. He's typically offstage, either watching or bossing people around. But there he was tonight, following Trump's wins in Florida, Illinois, and North Carolina, standing immediately to his candidate’s right.

This was not an accident. It was a display, and a vile one. Lewandowski was accused of aggressively grabbing Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields at a Trump event last Tuesday. She was bruised. The Trump campaign first denied that anything had happened, smearing Fields as either dishonest or delusional. Breitbart, Fields’ own publication, which serves as a mouthpiece for the Trump campaign, refused to fully defend its reporter, arguing instead the most likely explanation was that a Secret Service agent had grabbed her. Eventually, video emerged that showed Lewandowski lunging for Fields. Fields filed a police report, and she and a number of other Breitbart staffers resigned—all while the campaign continued to deny that Lewandowski had anything to do with it.

Meanwhile Breitbart's response to former staff members going public is to threaten them.

Courtesy of Politico:

Breitbart is getting litigious. 

The company sent out cease and desist letters to some of the employees who left the company in the past week, multiple sources with knowledge of the letters told POLITICO. Six staffers resigned in the past few days, citing the aftermath of how the site handled one of its reporters, Michelle Fields, accusing Donald Trump's campaign manager of strong-arming her as she tried to get the candidate's attention. 

I think this might be one of the best previews yet of what life would be like under Donald Trump presidency.

People being being abused by jack booted thugs, and pressure from propaganda outlets to keep quiet about it.

Now where have we seen this before?

      Mitch McConnell’s Obstruction Falls Apart As 8 Republicans To Meet With SCOTUS Nominee

      Mitch McConnell's plan to obstruct President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, by holding no meetings, hearings, or votes is coming closer to collapse as eight Senate Republicans have stated that they will meet with the nominee.

    2. He's a good choice. He's a moderate, is thought of well by the GOP, no objections the last time they confirmed him.

      Plus I think they are better off with the devil they know.

      If they are so against Drumpf not sure they would want any SCOTUS nominee he put forth. And if it's looking more and more like Hillary will win and they'll lose their majority in the Senate, they may want to accept the moderate Obama gives them than take a chance on a nominee Hillary puts forth that they don't have the numbers to block.

      In other words they are screwed. The more pragmatic ones are biting the bullet and their tongues and making nice. Reality checks in.

    I noticed that Trump did not take any questions last night. I figured it was because he wanted no questions about his abusive campaign manager. He also backed out of the FOX debate that was to be held this week. He and Palin are so very much alike. No wonder he wanted her campaigning for him.

    It was a vile move, yes. And today, of course, came news that Trump won't debate on Monday. He says he didn’t know there was a debate scheduled. Yeah, right, it'd been planned for a while (and Hillary had already accepted an invite and he needed to do the same, of course). He's using an AIPAC address as an excuse not to be at a Fox debate. He started up his anti-Megyn Kelly tweeting again last night to lay the groundwork on nor participating: a debate on Fix would be subjecting himself to unfairness and cruelty. And he won't address the fact that the AIPAC talk could be on one of three days of that meeting and at any time during those three days. He is avoiding a debate because he now would have to deal with there being no Cruz-Rubio fight and he'd have to answer things much more specifically, and we know he's incapable of that.

    On the night of the last debate (I think it was CNN), when he showed people on stage the fake BBB grade of A paper, at the very same time the NY attorney general was on MSNBC talking about the fake university case. Trump was calling it a minor personal lawsuit while the attorney general was talking about the realities of what is a large and serious and very real case. Megyn Kelly has since discussed this matter on her show, along with all the facts regarding what Trump and his campaign manager have done in regard to the assaulted Breitbart reporter. Last week, Megyn Kelly had Michelle Fields and one of the two men on who quit Breitbart on and they looked at all the film footage and listened to the audio that states how another man saw who grabbed Fields. Kelly also had on Trump’s spokesperson Katrina Person, who was still denying what happened. Till this day, Trump has denied what happened. Then last night he said a big f-you by bringing his campaign manager, the assaulter, on stage to stand next to him. On Trump’s other side was son Eric, the one who now owns the winery (which the Trumps got for 6.5 million in foreclosure and they never planted those grapes—it was the dream of the owner who put everything she had into creating the winery and then was broke and tried selling at 100 million but she was so desperate and Trump took advantage), so Trump was definitely making a statement.

    Now if Trump debates, he'll be asked even more questions on both of these subjects, the university lawsuit and the Breitbart reporter assault. He will be faced with one about why he had produced that false BBB document on stage. And he'll be faced with one about the assault. Given how Fox has been using video at the debates, chances are they'll use it to show that in both cases he has lied. And with the assault, he'll be asked to watch the videos (there are videos plural) and listen to the audio clip, and he'll be asked if he now will acknowledge that the reporter was grabbed by his campaign manager.

    Add to this all the policy questions he won't be able to answer with specifics. Nah, Trump does not want to debate Anyone. Ever. He’s such a coward. He’ll have to debate Hillary, but when it comes time to arrange a schedule he’ll try getting away with one or two debates, I’m sure. He keeps saying, “I haven’t even started on Hillary yet,” but she will rip him to shreds.

      Oops. Sorry, I meant Hillary had accepted an AIPAC invite, not a debate invite.

      Donald Trump Threatens Riots If He Doesn’t Get The GOP Nomination

      ... “I think we’ll win before getting to the convention, but I can tell you, if we didn’t, and if we’re 20 votes short or if we’re 100 short, and we’re at 1100 and somebody else is at 500 or 400 — because we’re way ahead of everybody — I don’t think you can say that we don’t get it automatically. I think you’d have riots. I think you’d have riots. I’m representing a tremendous — many, many millions of people. […] I think bad things would happen. I really do, I believe that. I wouldn’t lead it, but I think bad things would happen.”

      So after declaring that he should receive an “automatic” ascension to the Republican Party’s nomination, even if he does not satisfy the rules that govern the nominating process, Trump inhales deeply to puff up his chest and let loose one of the most piercing dog whistles of the campaign yet.

      Yes, when his audience has the energy to riot. Rioting means hurting people unable to defend themselves.

    Hillary accepted AIPAC's invite on 3/9. Trump accepted on 3/11. I don't know when the invites went out, but the Fox debate was announced on 2/20. Trump's trying to say he didn't know there was a debate scheduled. What a pussy.
