What’s worse than being manhandled by a campaign staffer and getting mocked by the candidate in the national media? Having all that happen while receiving threats from strangers. Former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, who accused Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of grabbing her at a press conference earlier this month, tells the Blaze that she’s moved out of her apartment because she’s been receiving threats and no longer feels safe. Fox News and BuzzFeed inadvertently published her address and phone number along with Lewandowski’s arrest report, and while the outlets have redacted her personal information she’s still getting disturbing messages on her phone. It’s like a real-life version of a pro-Trump comments section, but scarier and harder to ignore.
