16 Female Journalists Make a Bold Statement to Trump About His Campaign Manager

Screen-Shot-39-e1459360561452-674x330A number of notable female members of the media have signed their names onto a press release calling on GOP delegate frontrunner Donald Trump to fire campaign manager Corey Lewandowski over his “inexcusable and unprofessional” behavior.

The women wrote in a press release obtained by Independent Journal Review on Wednesday:

“The press is to have an adversarial, yet civil approach to those in, or running, for elected office. Never in this line of work is it acceptable to respond to reasonable and legitimate questioning with use of physical force.

The photographs, audio, videos and witness accounts documenting the treatment of Michelle Fields by Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, are inexcusable and unprofessional. Donald Trump should immediately remove Lewandowski from his campaign.

The Trump campaign has stated that Lewandowski will not be fired even if convicted, however unlike the Trump campaign, we believe in making a statement on the record to clearly highlight the difference between right and wrong.” READ MORE OF THIS STORY
