Reporter Who Enraged Trump Campaign Lands A New Gig Involving Trump

The former Breitbart reporter will continue covering the presumptive Republican nominee and his campaign for the presidential elections 2016.

Michelle Fields, the former Breitbart reporter who invoked a storm of controversies against Donald Trump and brought charges of battery against his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, found herself a new job that will keep her in close contact with Trump's campaign.

Fields, along with some other staff members, left the Breitbart network earlier this year after the management decided not to back Fields’ accusations of Lewandowski manhandling her at a campaign event. Senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak even ordered other staffers to stop defending their colleague and reportedly threatened some with termination.

“I can’t stand with an organization that won’t stand by me,” Fields wrote on Twitter at the time.

Now, she is going to cover the presumptive GOP nominee and his campaign once again, thanks to The Huffington Post.

In a dramatic (but not so shocking) turn of event, Fields told CNN about her appointment at the liberal-leaning publication a day before she is set to start work.

“After the tumultuous events of the last few months, I am ready to get back to writing and reporting on what is without question the most bizarrely fascinating presidential race of my lifetime (and, perhaps, any lifetime),” Fields said in a statement on Sunday. “[I am] beyond excited to join one of the biggest names in political journalism.”

Moreover, The Huffington Post’s Washington bureau chief, Ryan Grim, called the journalist “one of the most widely read chroniclers of the conservative movement.”

Meanwhile, Patrick Howley, a disgruntled former colleague who tried to smear Fields at the start of the controversy, took to social media to mock the reporter right after the news of her new job surface the internet.



He went as far as to mention Jamie Weinstein, senior editor for Daily Caller and Field’s fiancé, in one of his tweets.



Weinstein hit back shortly and the interaction soon turned into a length online rant, which ended with Weinstein ending the conversation by questioning Howley’s mental stability.
