Quote Piers Morgan or show Britney Spears in a bikini?

Readers, I cannot decide what to do in this post. Do I quote Piers Morgan's response to this nontroversy over Corey Lewandowski (Trump's campaign manager) allegedly pushing touching a girl reporter away from Trump, or do I post the latest picture of Britney Spears in a bikini?

You make the call, dear readers.

First, a picture of Britney Spears at the beach in Hawaii on Tuesday.

Now Piers Morgan:
Part of Lewandowski’s job is to protect Trump from nosey journalists, and that’s exactly what he’s doing.
Fields, let me also be very clear, was also doing her job and if I were her editor, I’d congratulate her on getting so close to her prey, especially as repeatedly touching a presidential front-runner in public when he’s surrounded by Secret Service agents is a very risky thing to do.
But my fulsome praise would very rapidly be replaced by utter incredulity if she then informed me she was going to press charges against Lewandowski for battery.
Particularly given that battery, according to the law, means ‘intentionally touching someone without that person’s will’ – the very same thing we now know Fields did to Trump.
This doesn’t mean I take violence against women lightly. But there has to be some kind of harmful intent surely?
Lewandowski wasn’t trying to hurt Michelle Fields, he was trying to stop her getting to Donald Trump. If one of the Secret Service agents had done it, as they had every right to do given her behaviour, they’d have been applauded for doing their job.
Like every journalist I know, I’ve spent much of my career being pushed, shoved, elbowed and barged in crowded places when trying to get near famous people.
It goes with the territory.
Just as for that special breed of journalists who work in war zones, daily life can include dodging bullets, bombs and grenades.
Some of the toughest journalists in America are women.
Would Barbara Walters, Katie Couric or Diane Sawyer have pressed charges if they’d been in Ms Fields’ position?
Of course they wouldn’t.
They’d have all brushed off Lewandowski’s obstruction and chased back after Trump to try and fire more questions at him.
That’s what real reporters do. They don’t take no for an answer.
Trump is the imperfect candidate with the perfect message. He has my vote and if you don't like it, well, here is another picture of Britney Spears in a bikini:


  1. What? Piers Morgan, the British schmuck, actually said something that makes sense? Maybe not so surprising, as he seems to have taken a liking to The Donald - at least judging from the text of his recent interview with him.

    As for Britney, it looks as if she has snapped out of her previous problems and started taking care of herself again. - Elric

    1. Piers Morgan:When it comes to terror, isn’t it time we started listening seriously to Trump?

  2. Britney's gotten big boobs. Me likey.

    Michelle Fields has no boobs. Me no likey.


    1. Actually Fields has quite an impressive rack. She's a boob with large boobs.

  3. Enter my vote for the lovely Britney. Especially any photos of Britney when she is hangin' out with her friends (Paris?)

  4. Don has now gone in Full Anti-Woman. First by not defending Fields and then showing a pic of a woman in a Bikini. Oh the horror.
    I guess we are lucky he did not post a pic of Hillary or Nancy P. in a bikini.

  5. What Piers Morgan wrote is what I saw in the security video that was posted on the Internet, viz., that Fields herself began the chain of events that eventually led Lewandowski to get concerned over Trump's security. That was my interpretation of the individual video frames I watched, and what I posted here the other day. I find it amazing that so many people have missed--literally--the big picture in order to focus on the tiny part where she's grabbed by Lewandowski.

    1. She ignored Secret Service instructions to stay a respectful distance away from their protectee, Donald Trump. 2. In the video clip Lewandowski showed obvious, visible concern over the safety of the candidate. 3. The secret Service protective detail failed in its job to protect Trump. 4. This incident proves that anyone who wishes Trump physical harm likely can get close enough to him to act upon their plans.

    Point #4 is the important one. We do not need another Robert Kennedy assassination. There are a lot of people out there who wish Trump serious harm, far more than the Kennedy Secret Service detail had to worry about. Liberal Democrats have become obsessed and irrational over Trump. Their protests agains him use threatening language. A number of George Soros backed groups have openly stated their goal is to physically disrupt his campaign rallies. The prospects those groups might direct physical violence at Trump are real and growing with time as his nomination becomes more certain. They cannot be ignored. The incident with Michelle Fields illustrates the Secret Service faces a difficult task if it is to protect Trump against possible violence by the Left. The agency needs to step up to the challenge to avoid a repeat of Robert Kennedy's assassination.

  6. Great selection Don. Two from column B and none from column A.

  7. I recall seeing a picture of Field's' arm with the bruise--and could not see a bruise on her arm. Could be one, but I couldn't see it.

  8. @LYNNDH - Hillary or Nancy Pelosi in a bikini? Please - I just ate.
