Someone once said that there are usually three sides to any story involving a conflict between two people. In a conflict involving more than two, well…

As is being reported by numerous news outlets, popular analysts Ben Shapiro and Michelle Fields resigned from Breitbart News this weekend over the way that publication handled allegations that Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski assaulted Fields at an event for the GOP front-runner last Wednesday. Shapiro resigned, presumably in solidarity with Fields.

I’ve met Fields, never met Shapiro, but I’ve had some brief dealings with some of Trump’s inner circle who will for now remain nameless because it isn’t important, and because I’d rather end a fight and start one. I will, for the record, convey my firsthand assessment that those in Trump’s very small inner circle can be pretty arrogant knuckleheads at times.

That said, if I were in Trump’s shoes, I might want arrogant knuckleheads acting as my gatekeepers also.

I have no intention of saying what I think happened between Fields and Lewandowski because I wasn’t there. Given what I know of Ms. Fields, I seriously doubt that she would bear false witness against Lewandowski even if she despised Trump as a candidate. I also think it’s nonsense to presume that either Fields or Shapiro are attempting to exploit’s lack of reaction to the incident in order to bolster their careers. Neither of them need to do so.
