Donald Trump Accuses Jeb Bush of Planting a Feminist at a New Hampshire Conference


PicMonkey CollageFollowing a fiery exchange with a woman at a campaign event Monday, Donald Trump took to Twitter to accuse Jeb Bush of planting an intern at the No Labels conference in New Hampshire.

According to her LinkedIn profile, the woman in question — Lauren Batchelder — is a campaign intern at Jeb Bush for President 2016, and a former intern for New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte. Conservative bloggers culled images of Batchelder at various Bush campaign events, as well as since-deleted tweets where she appears to support Bush’s candidacy.

In reponse to Trump’s accusations, Bush’s communications director Tim Miller tweeted:


According to the Washington Post, a spokeswoman for the Bush campaign confirmed that Batchelder is not a paid staff member, and insisted that her question was not sanctioned by the Bush campaign.

Despite reports that Batchelder is not, in fact, a paid staffer, Trump continues to attack the Bush campaign for planting the young woman at the conference.
