White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest tried, convicted and sentenced Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski at Wednesday’s press briefing.

And he was “confident.”

“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 said.

“I am also confident in telling you nobody is particularly surprised that that’s behavior that Mr. Trump doesn’t just seem to tolerate, he seems to encourage,” he added.

Lewandowski is accused of grabbing the arm of a reporter to get her away from the candidate in a media scrum in Florida.

When he refused to apologize to reporter Michelle Fields, she filed a police report, causing the release of a video. Dominoes began to fall.

And they keep falling.
