Donald Trump former bullying campaign manager Corey Lewandowski found himself at the center of a firestorm of attention after he manhandled then Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. Lewandowski claimed that Fields reached out and touched Donald Trump so he had to grab her in order to protect Trump in case Fields had a bomb. Note that all reporters had been screened previously but don’t let that little fact get in the way of his ridiculous assertion.
Lewandowski was charged with simple battery after Fields filed charges. The charges were only filed after the Trump campaign dared her to do so rather than them offering a simple apology. Although the charges were ultimately dropped by the DA, this was not the first time Lewandowski had manhandled someone on the behalf of the Trump campaign. His propensity for putting his hands roughly on someone makes his whining this morning on CNN even more ridiculous and comical.
It should be noted that Lewandowski is now a CNN commentator paid to defend Trump, since his non-disclosure agreement with the Trump campaign prevents him from speaking badly of Donald Trump. He’s also still receiving “severance payments” from the Trump campaign.
I admit. I wasn’t watching this segment but came across a tweet by The Reagan Battalion. It has Lewandowski feigning upset at a female panelist for daring to reach out and touch his shoulder.
The short clip is even set to music to assist in your viewing pleasure. The sheer hypocrisy of Lewandowski, whose rough ways with reporters and protesters were described by Trump as “spirited” is humor enough….and pathetic.
Don't touch me!
Master toucher Corey Lewandowski whining about being touched.

Someone, please save Corey from the mean woman who dared to gently touch his shoulder!
Is he a wuss or a drama queen?
