Trump Campaign Manager Charged With Misdemeanor Battery (UPDATED)

Here's your "Making America Great Again" Republican "presidential" campaign in a nutshell:
Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with battery Tuesday following an incident in which he allegedly grabbed a reporter, Michelle Fields, at a campaign event earlier this month. 
Lewandowski turned himself in to police Tuesday morning in Jupiter, Florida, where he was charged with misdemeanor battery.
After lying repeatedly about the incident, both Rump and his ruff 'n' tuff bully boy now have the visual evidence shoved right in their smug faces in the form of this new videotape released by the local police (that's Lewandowski with his arm outstretched walking behind Rump and Fields is in the pale yellow jacket being yanked away):

UPDATE:  Here's where you can see the interview with Lewandowski's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, that Gene references in comments.

Of course it was a battery. Lewandowski is a chump wash-out wanna be cop with a fake never served military haircut, he embodies every right-wingers authoritarian dreams. What made this incident so funny was the victim was a breitbart woman, the type who lustfully cheered on the worst conservative lies and championed the right-wing Obama is Hitler bullshit. It should be a warning sign about Trump and what his regime would be like but instead it is another opportunity for conservatives to embrace their strongman and seek to impose their values of oppression, intolerance, and adulation of the rich. BTW, watch the segement withthe scum bucket defense attorney on Chris Hayes from last night. Hes a junior Addington and presages the Trump DoJ.
