Piers Morgan Tells Reporter Accusing Corey Lewandowski of Battery to “Toughen Up”

Morgan’s response follows the release of a security video that appears to verify former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields’ claim that Lewandowski forcibly grabbed her arm on March 8 as she approached the real estate magnate for a question earlier this month—an incident Lewandowski and Trump’s campaign have vehemently denied ever happened. After being formally charged with simple battery today, Trump’s campaign remains in denial.
