That young woman who assailed Donald Trump for his treatment of women was not just someone who walked in off the street. The female questioner at the No Labels event who badgered Trump for not showing enough respect for women was Lauren Batchelder, a paid staff member of Jeb Bush's presidential campaign. The Conservative Tree House called out Batchelder, whom it noted was quickly trying to scrub her social media history to hide the identity of her employer. That didn't stop CNN from framing the narrative it wished to project to its viewers about Trump. Trump was quick to call out the sham questioner on his Twitter account.
The arrogant young woman who questioned me in such a nasty fashion at No Labels yesterday was a Jeb staffer! HOW CAN HE BEAT RUSSIA & CHINA?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2015
"@Politics_Reddit: That feminist who called out Trump last night? She's a Jeb intern. http://t.co/aRroatryt6" Jeb always gets caught, sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2015
