This is not good. There needs to be more than an apology for this:
POLITICO – Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski forcibly yanked Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields out of the way after his press conference in Florida on Tuesday night.
Fields was attempting to ask Trump a question as he exited the press conference. Secret Service was starting to clear a path, when Fields was forcibly grabbed on her arm by Lewandowski, moving her out of the way and nearly bringing her down to the ground, a source who witnessed the situation told POLITICO.
Fields was clearly roughed up by the move, the witness said.
Daily Caller senior editor Jamie Weinstein, Fields’ boyfriend, also tweeted about the situation:
Trump always surrounds himself w thugs. Tonight thug Corey Lewandowski tried to pull my gf @MichelleFields to ground when she asked tough q

Breitbart News CEO and president Larry Solov said in a statement if it was Lewandowski, he owes her an apology.
A spokesperson for the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Fields did not respond to a request for comment.
Michelle didn’t see exactly who grabbed her. It was an eye-witnesses who told her it was Lewandowski and it looks like Politico has confirmed this.
If Trump’s boys can’t handle a victory night, how are they going to handle working for the president?
Trump needs to fire Lewandowski after he makes an official apology, especially if Trump wants any cred with women after this.
Clearly Lewandowski is a hothead and it’s time for him to go.
