Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson got a little incredulous this afternoon with guest Kevin Jackson as he downplayed the significance of Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski grabbing Michelle Fields.
Lewandowski was charged with battery today, but Jackson called this whole thing “completely overblown.” Carlson pointed out that instead of handling it at the time, Trump and his team “fueled” this story further.
“I don’t believe,” Carlson said, “the Jupiter police got in on this for a political fight! They’re getting in on it because they believe battery happened.”
Jackson stated as a fact that Fields’ bruises “didn’t come from that particular incident. Carlson cried, “How do you know?!” Jackson said, “Because it was barely in passing and you don’t see any reaction from her.”
He argued that what’s going on here is an attack on Trump and conservatism. Carlson shot back that it actually isn’t.
