Trump Only Today Started Claiming That Michelle Fields ‘Grabbed’ Him


trumpDonald Trump and his people are claiming that it’s Michelle Fields who changed her story after video emerged of Corey Lewandowski grabbing her.

Yeah, no. It’s actually Trump himself who changed his story, because today, suddenly, after the surveillance video from his hotel came out, he “remembered” that Fields grabbed him.

The first time he brought it up today was with this tweet, which does not depict Fields grabbing him:

But then he pulled the old CSI trick. Computer, ENHANCE!

He said it again on his plane today––”I think if you look at it, he was trying to block her, that’s the way I would view it, and she’s grabbing me and asking questions.”

Trump said the same during his rambling appearance for CNN’s town hall, and during his Hannity interview tonight, he seemed dead certain this totally happened:

“She grabbed me. Before he grabbed her, if he even grabbed her… she grabbed me, and she wasn’t supposed to! She grabbed me once or twice and that’s why I’m looking down at my arm!”

If Trump was really grabbed by Fields and felt that undermined her case, um, wouldn’t he have brought that up weeks ago?
