It looks as if Piers Morgan is looking to surpass Donald Trump for the very worst response to news that the front-runner's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with simple battery of a female reporter. The former CNN host has emerged from irrelevance to tweet the following:
Can you imagine Barbara Walters, Katie Couric or Diane Sawyer claiming 'battery' for this? Just ridiculous. https://t.co/JuysRTwRTJ— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 29, 2016
Morgan's response follows the release of a security video that appears to verify former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields' claim that Lewandowski forcibly grabbed her arm on March 8 as she approached the real estate magnate for a question earlier this month—an incident Lewandowski and Trump's campaign have vehemently denied ever happened. After being formally charged with simple battery today, Trump's campaign remains in denial.
