Piers Morgan: Michelle Fields Assault Claim ‘Pathetic’

By Mark Joyella 

Former CNN host Piers Morgan, now Editor-at-Large for DailyMail.com, says the incident that led to criminal charges against of battery against Corey Lewandowski, campaign manager for Donald Trump, is “one of the most pathetic things I have ever seen.”

In an interview with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, Morgan, a former contestant on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, said surveillance video of the incident involving former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields was “utterly tame.”

Morgan said “the idea that you watch that video and anyone with a brain thinks that is some kind of assault or battery, they are living in cloud cuckoo land…what would Christiane Amanpour, what would Katie Couric, what would Barbara Walters, what would Diane Sawyer have done if they had been brushed away like that by Corey Lewandowski? I’ll tell you what they would have done. They would have dusted themselves down and run back after Trump and try to get another question.”

Van Susteren, in an interview in Wisconsin ahead of Tuesday’s primary, told TVNewser “a lot of women, Christiane Amanpour, Andrea Mitchell, Judy Woodruff, Greta Van Susteren, Susan Page. All the women who have covered campaigns over the years. We fought real hard to get into this room. We want to be part of the scrum.”
