Conservative Twitter Takes Early Sides in the Villa + Lewandowski Fight
Yesterday, Annie Karni with the Politico posted an exclusive story detailing the alleged sexual harassment and unwanted touching reported by Joy Villa and one of her friends to have occurred at the slap-happy hands of former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski at an event at the Trump International Hotel in D.C. last month.
Villa, who finally records her age as 31 instead of 26 in the article by a current White House reporter who covered the Hillary campaign, has not divulged the name of the only other witness to the alleged unwanted touching. The unnamed friend was the one who acted as intermediary to introduce Joy to Corey. So far, the best theory is that this is all George Soros‘ doing.
Like the Michelle Fields incident in 2015 that split the conserv-o-sphere apart, this time the lines have been drawn in the sand while the rest of us have been enjoying cocoa with family in the lead-up to another happy Christmas. So, here’s the starter pack of tweets about the incident:

In my personal opinion, an alleged ass slap isn’t a reason to ruin a man’s career.
People slap my ass all the time. You have to pick your battles.

Joy Villa Awareness crusader Vinnie James points out that he’s been warning us about Joy (Archive Link):
I just had a terrifying thought. Corey Lewandowski was Trump's campaign manager, right? Joy Villa is on his reelection council, right? What if she's attempting to destroy Corey so he's out of the picture so either Joy or someone in her circle can become campaign manager? -VJ

Matt Couch with the America First Media Group (Archive Link):
Joy Villa starts her attack on Team MAGA… The First Victim Corey Lewandowski… Many of us tried to warn everyone what she would do. We told you about her saying she was a Christian and a Scientologist.. It’s has begun..

Mike Zollo says (Archive Link):
Joy Villa is a LIAR, claiming Corey Lewandowski slapped her butt. Joy Villa was a fraud from the beginning. She is being used by the democrats to infiltrate the Trump team to claim sexual assault.
Wow. Many people fell for this one.

Omar Navarro, (Archive Link) who has hosted Joy at his fundraisers as he looks to unseat Maxine Waters in California, who is still on probation from a misdemeanor criminal conviction “stemming from his use of an electronic tracking device he attached to his wife’s car,” refuses to comment. Further reading: Is There Anyone on the New Right who HASN’T Been Arrested?
I ask people not to distract me with matters that are not related to my Campaign. I’m running against Maxine Waters. That’s my only focus defeating her in 2018. Anything else is getting a block.

Lee Stranahan seems to be holding his cards close to his chest (Archive Link):
What really happened with that Hope Hicks screaming match that happened on the streets of NYC?

Mike Cernovich has deleted his supportive tweet about the incident — not before I snagged it on Archive — so perhaps he’s looked again and is now walking back into neutrality. For the laughs, here are some highlights from his Titanic AMA on reddit yesterday:
And for kicks, it appears that Roaming Millennial and Peter Boykin are taking Joy’s side in the fi-ass-co.
I’m almost disappointed I’ll be out of range of internet on Christmas Day while visiting family, because this is too good.
