Former Breitbart conservative journalist Michelle Fields got her 15 minutes of fame earlier this year when she claimed Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, violently grabbed her arm and shoved her down to the ground at a Trump rally. Did he? No. Lewandowski called Fields “totally delusional” and insisted he never touched her. There are even video screenshots from security cameras at the event that prove her story was a total fib, as well as sources claiming Fields has a past of playing “cry wolf” toward other male politicians and figures. Regardless, she pressed charges and created a media frenzy until Breitbart finally let her go due to the trouble she was causing.
So where does she work now? None other than the Huffington Post, a far left liberal and pro-feminist publication on the other side of the spectrum. “After the tumultuous events of the last few months, I am ready to get back to writing and reporting on what is without question the most bizarrely fascinating presidential race of my lifetime (and, perhaps, any lifetime). I’m beyond excited to join one of the biggest names in political journalism,” Fields said in a statement on Sunday night.
Fields said last month that Trump and Lewandowski “defamed” her and her reputation, and that she was considering a defamation suit against the two. Below is a double triptych of video footage proving Lewandowski did not push her down, as well as a Twitter user’s rather humorous tweeted response to Fields’ announcement:
