Det politiske Amerika var i opprør tirsdag kveld ved nyheten om at politiet i Florida har pågrepet Donald Trumps valgkampleder Corey Lewandoski for å ha tatt en kvinnelig reporter hardt i armen.

Trump-leiren mener establishment er desperate etter å finne en sak de kan henge ham på.

Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with battery Tuesday by the police in Jupiter, Fla., who said he had grabbed a reporter as she tried to ask the candidate a question.

The charge stems from an incident on March 8 that attracted days of news coverage and became a distraction for Mr. Trump’s campaign as his victories in the March 1 Super Tuesday contests gave way to more mixed results.

It occurred after a news conference at Trump National Golf Club, as Mr. Trump made his way out of a crowded room and the reporter, Michelle Fields of Breitbart News, a conservative website, sidled up to him.

Fields har sluttet i Breitbart, og seks av hennes kolleger har gjort det samme i solidaritet. Siste ord er neppe sagt. Trump, Kasich og Cruz møtes til town hall-debatt i Wisconsin natt til onsdag og saken vil sikkert komme opp. Trump backer ikke ut. Han støtter sin valgkampleder.

Er det storm i vannglass? Hvordan vil velgerne reagere?
