This is not an attempt to diminish Michelle’s claim that she was grabbed by #Donald Trump‘s campaign manager/bodyguard, Corey #Lewandowski – she was grabbed. Corey Lewandowski alleged that Michelle had lied and called her delusional.
@MichelleFields you are totally delusional. I never touched you. As a matter of fact, I have never even met you.
— Corey Lewandowski (@CLewandowski_) March 11, 2016
Now that it is established that Lewandowski has lied, can we now, comfortably, discuss the problems with Michelle’s story.
She gave an impassioned rendition of what transpired on the day the alleged incident, through her former employer Breitbart. Part what she said was:
Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.
As you can see from the statement there are problems with her story. First, she stated she was “jolted” backwards. That is apparently a blatant lie, she was not “jolted”, but even if you find it as a jolt, it gets more worse. Second, she says she almost fell to the ground; however, if you see this video she keeps walking as if nothing happened. Then, the cherry on top are the bruises. She claims that her forearm was bruised and shows the images:
If you look at the still image from the video it is apparent she was grabbed on her upper arm. You can see where her arm goes up and where she is grabbed, that is very clear. Where she states she was bruised is on her forearm. Hence, the bruises do not add up. Further, how was he able to create those bruises on her that quickly; and, when he never grabbed her forearm. It seems as though whomever created those bruises they forgot which part of the hand was grabbed. If you think we are just saying this as some form of conspiracy, look for yourself above. This is not a pro-trump blog, we have been critical of him in the past. We aim to report things as we see them, and this is not adding up.
She further stated in her statement the following:
The Washington Post’s Ben Terris immediately remarked that it was Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who aggressively tried to pull me to the ground.
Did anyone see Lewandowski “aggressively” trying to pull her “to the ground”? I have watched this video so many times and have analyzed it over and over, but there is no proof that there was ever an attempt to pull her to the ground, let alone aggressively. When did that happen?
She continues on stating:
Campaign managers aren’t supposed to try to forcefully throw reporters to the ground, no matter the circumstance.
I never saw, once again, any campaign manager trying to forcefully throw anyone to the ground. I did not see Lewandowski attempting to throw Michelle to the ground. What I saw was Trump’s manager trying to pull her away from Donald Trump. I saw a quick, reflexive action that almost seems subconscious.
However, as I stated earlier, Michelle was grabbed, and anyone that says otherwise needs to see their primary care doctor for an Ophthalmology referral. Lewandowski blatantly lied when he said it never happened. Trump campaign also blatantly lied by alleging it never happened. However, Trump and his affiliates are not the subject of this article. When someone’s reputation and livelihood can be ruined by a story full of holes, it should be all of our concern. Anyone can make up a story or embellish a story. Michelle’s story is embellished. If she had told the complete truth from the onset, then it’s an open and shut case; however, when she engaged in distorting the facts, it becomes quite difficult to sympathize with her. Simply being a #NeverTrump person should not make you devoid of facts, especially those ones that are blatant.
ASK YOURSELF: Why did Michelle have bruises on the wrong part of her arm? Why did the bruises she took pictures of hours later look like her arm was just grabbed? Why did she claim she almost fell to the ground? Why did she pretend that she was almost thrown to the ground by saying reporters shouldn’t be dragged to the ground? Why did she press charges because she didn’t get an apology? Why did she want an apology – an apology is an admission of doing something wrong; is she planning a lawsuit?
There are problems with her story – period! It’s not about sexism or anti-feminism, this is about a story told by someone that has not come out to be 100% factually accurate and someone’s reputation and future depends on the truth. There are legitimate victims out there and this isn’t a case that should become the champion for the legitimate problems women face. If she had not embellished her story she would be completely justified in filing charges and all sympathy thereafter; but the minute she lost credibility, all my empathy disappeared.
The mainstream media will not challenge these issues because they do not want to side with Donald Trump or look to side with him in anyway. In addition, the media is so corrupt that they prefer ratings to the truth. Yes, this is a salacious story, but it is being pushed at the expense of someone’s livelihood. They will not ask questions because they are all totally devoid of any credibility left.
Honestly, if she writes a book or files a lawsuit after this, I will not be surprised at all. Something just isn’t adding up about her, her story; and, people should ask questions.
