Michelle Fields needles Trump's former campaign manager
Journalist Michelle Fields on Monday needled Corey Lewandowski after news broke that he is no longer presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald TrumpDonald TrumpHarris stumps for McAuliffe in Virginia On The Money — Sussing out what Sinema wants Hillicon Valley — Presented by Xerox — The Facebook Oversight Board is not pleased MORE's campaign manager.
Fields, who parted ways with the right-leaning Breitbart News website after a run-in with Lewandowski, tweeted:
Lewandowski knocked Fields on Twitter as "delusional" and an "attention seeker" when she filed a police report and displayed bruises on her arm after the incident at a Trump event in March. Security footage released later showed Lewandowski taking hold of her arm after a press conference.
Trump's campaign denied the incident took place before the video was released.
Trump and his aides then argued that a misdemeanor charge was overblown. In April, authorities in Florida declined to prosecute Lewandowski on the battery charge.
Fields, who joined The Huffington Post in May to continue covering the Trump campaign, discussed the incident in her book.
Trump fiercely defended his embattled campaign manager, who had been at the helm of the billionaire's campaign since last year, for several weeks amid fallout from the Fields incident.
