Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for Donald J. Trump, was interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this morning. While most media outlets consider the “Battery Charge” levied against Mr. Lewandowski by Michelle Fields, a former Brietbart reporter, all but dead news Wallace proceeded to question Lewandowski about the incident, in a out of line attempt to revive the now dismissed charges. This unnecessary and inflammatory questioning once again substantiates the anti-Trump sentiment that GOP establishment’s influence over pundits and reporters who at their behest continue their efforts to stop Trump.
Chris Wallace then proceeded to leverage his contemptuous questioning of Mr. Lewandowski about some alleged fracture within the Trump campaign. Wallace’s question alleging that the addition of Paul Manafort as a “Changing of Guard” is snarky to say the least. It is a continued attack of the establishment to exploit any weakness alleged or manufactured to try and slow the Trump campaign.
Manafort was quoted as stating in the Trump Campaign’s press release about his duties and focus within the campaign, “As part of the campaign team, my job is to secure and protect Mr. Trump’s nomination and that is what we will do. In this regard, I will be working closely with Mr. Lewandowski and Mr. Glassner to ensure Mr. Trump’s nomination. I am honored that he has allowed me to join him in this effort.”
In an attempt to voice concern over the controversial Colorado primary surprise Donald Trump in a written opinion for the Wall Street Journal masterfully nailed the frustration of many disenfranchised voters. The GOP’s rules disqualify the voter from the candidate selection process. The candidate is not determined by the constituency of Republican Party, rather, the candidate is a coronation of the Republican establishment; “If you are not an insider then you can’t play!” The frustration of the Trump Campaign’s position certainly rings true with Trump supporters.
The United States of America was founded on the principles of God and Democracy. The whole democracy theory is subjugated when the process removes the power of the governed over the state when matters of constitutionality are put at risk. It may be time to return to a basic structure as the founders of this country envisioned. We escaped from aristocracy and we certainly don’t want to return. It is the continued political class establishment rule, whether Democrat or Republican, that risks our freedom and Constitutional rights.
