This robbed the Cruz affair of a lot of it's potential for fun and crazy. No straw-grasping apologies from Cruz folks, just attacks at Trump.
A little bit better is the story of a former Breitbart reporter who was grabbed by Trump's chief of staff. (BTW, I first knew Trump was serious back in November when he hired Lewandowski, an actual political pro, away from the Kotch brothers. Well, so much for pro...).
First this blew up Breitbart.com over loyalty to her or Trump; that was fun. Then Trump campaign called her delusional, and recently a tape came out that shows that their blanket denial was a straight-up intentional lie. Nothing doing for Freepers.
But now she's pressing charges. Petty charges that the media will run extra hard with because this is one of their own. Trump is not helping himself by standing by his man and doubling down on everything from the bruises aren't real to she was gonna assault him to nothing happened shut up.
It's a cliche to say that it's not the crime it's the coverup, but this does seem like the first time something's checked Trump's momentum in a while.
From Lewandowski to Trump to Breitbart to this reporter, no one is covering themselves in glory here. But Freepers can always be counted on the be the worst. In this case, they top Trump by only a hair, though. Trump's upping his crazy game but the real issue is that Trump v. Cruz is really sapping their crazy mojo.
20yearsofinternet knows this ain't no story. Plus Cruz would have done worse!
Hey look, Cory turned himself in to face the BS charges and is loudly proclaiming his innocence.Jane Long also goes with the "Look over there, it's strawman Cruz!"
Contrast that with how Ted Cruz acts in the face of allegations. If this were Cruz, he’d be blaming Trump. LOL
It’s cRuz’s fault.LS deflects an accusation of deflection with an accusation of deflection:
You’re exactly spot on....if this were ANYTHING negative to do with the cRuz camp....they’d be blaming Trump.
The stark difference between men and whiny boys. Take responsibility - even if it’s an absurd ham sandwich allegation - or blame, blame, blame (ala the Dems).
Nice try. Nice attempt to ••deflect•• on this uncomfortable and embarrassing issue of Trump’s top man getting booked right in the middle of the frikkin campaign. Really special.Williams is sure this is politically motivated:
What’s “really special” is THE CANDIDATE HIMSELF diddling several women. Did you read the sexy song lyric back and forth on Twitter?
Cruz should be ashamed. THAT, my friend, is total deflection.
Absolutely crazy and ridiculous. Purely political.Wen the law is posted, Williams is reduced to arguing that the prosecutor abused their discretion:
no prosecutor in their honest mind would pursue a crime here.
Excuse me, but you are citing a statue. You are not recognizing that there are defenses to statutes, also there is common sense discretion by prosecutors.Ann Archy knows who the real villain is!!!
Obviously by relying on a statue that refers to ANY touching you are introducing an element of absurdity into a political campaign.
The reporters get bumped, jostled, grabbed, shoved, pushed a dozen times a day.
Michelle Fields needs to be SHUNNED for this!!marktwain smells political correctness:
She is the RUDEST person on those Sat, morning FOX business shows!!!
They must of found a police department ready to push political correctness to the limit.Uber racist The Toll has decided the nonviolent black protestors are always battering people, and two wrongs make a right:
Maybe I should not be surprised, considering the political work that prosecutors did against Republicans in Texas, such as Tom Delay.
He was just protestin!originalbuckeye knows chiefs of staff often double as bodyguards:
All I see is the ‘perp’ grabing her arm to keep her away from harassing Trump. Does she have photos of bruising or something? No assault, just an operative trying to protect his charge.Stentor loves him some vexatious litigation:
If Lewandowski hadn’t denied it so loudly and had just said “Sorry - I got carried away” it wouldn’t have come to this. But Trump and his people don’t believe in apologizing.JayGalt cries false flag:
If I were he, I'd keep her in court until she was eating beefaroni 3 times a day.
This is garbage, she bruised her own arm, there is less than a second of contact and she moved into his path.JayGalt also cries...flanking maneuver?
In military tactics, a flanking maneuver, or flanking manoeuvre is a movement of an armed force around a flank to achieve an advantageous position over an enemy. Flanking is useful because a force’s offensive power is concentrated in its front. Therefore, to circumvent a force’s front and attack a flank is to concentrate offense in the area when the enemy is least able to concentrate offense.little jeremiah is posting again! She's in the false flag camp as well:
Do people have to apologize for nonsense? This is so stupid and no professional reporter would even consider bringing a criminal complaint. It’s obvious from any video that this was a complete non incident.Cementjungle thinks this was the Democrats warning Trump about a future indictment:
And probably pre-planned.
This is a warning shot across the bow. If Trump wins the nomination and becomes a serious threat to Hillary, Justice will charge him with something. Going through tax returns and claiming fraud for various deductions would be an easy target, or perhaps they could charge him with attempted bribery for buying lunch for some mayor he may have met with while discussing a hotel project or something. The possibilities are endless.
