The #NeverTrump Cruzers have now joined with Team Obama to bash Donald Trump over a hoax assault.
The real question is: Are they working together to bring down Trump?
Yesterday group of 16 self-righteous Ted Cruz supporters released a statement demanding Donald Trump fire Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski for allegedly assaulting reporter Michelle Fields. Fields claims she was assaulted when Lewandowski walked past her at the end of a Trump event in Jupiter, Florida.
White House Press Secretary joined the Cruz-supporting vigilantes in calling for Lewandowski to step down.
Trump said he will stand by his campaign manager because he watched the video and nothing happened.
Good for Trump.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Wednesday condemned Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump for standing by his campaign manager after he was charged with battery.
Corey Lewandowski is accused of grabbing the arm of a reporter after a Trump press conference in Florida earlier this month.
“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 told reporters.
Earnest said Trump’s response to the Lewandowski incident, as well his other controversial actions, is “completely outside the realm of acceptable behavior.”
