Newsflash: Rallies are filled with rowdy people.
At a Tucson, Arizona Donald Trump rally Saturday, a protester was pulled back by his shirt collar — some say by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who was previously accused of grabbing former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields’ arm to pull her back from Trump at a crowded rally.
Fields demanded an apology, alleging that the grab left bruises.
The Trump campaign denied both instances and critics are just shocked by the thought of the “rough” campaign manager touching someone else.
Thank goodness for video to put things into perspective.

The Trump camp later denied that Lewandowski was the collar-yanker. It claimed it was the individual to Lewandowski’s left.

Still, at least one wasn’t quite so sure.

Maybe he should just fess up to protecting his boss. The Gateway Pundit editor Jim Holt, called Lewandowski “the best campaign manager ever.”
At the same event, a Trump supporter punched and kicked a protester as he was being led out of the building by police, followed by a hooded KKK agitator.
As for Fields, both she and Breitbart’s then-editor at large Ben Shapiro resigned from the news organization, and Fields lost her position as a panelist on Fox News Channel’s “Cashin’ In” because of the incident.
