Does this guy never cease to make the most ridiculous headlines in US political history? In his most recent feat, he took to Twitter to suggest that a reporter’s pen could have been a potentially dangerous weapon.
Former Breitbart reporter, Michelle Fields, recently approached Trump after a victory press conference to ask him a few questions. The pair have had issues in the past as Fields was allegedly assaulted at a previous event by Trump’s campaign manager Cory Lewandowski after he grabbed her arm and dragged her out of the way.
Trump initially denied the occurrence but then changed his stance to say that Lewandowski was only trying to protect him. Either way, he clearly is still bitter about the whole thing as Trump tried to claim on Twitter that Fields was trying to assault him when she approached him holding a pen.
Why is this reporter touching me as I leave news conference? What is in her hand?? pic.twitter.com/HQB8dl0fhn

When CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked him about the “incident”, Trump said:
She went through the Secret Service.
She had a pen in her hand, which Secret Service is not liking because they don’t know what it is, whether it’s a little bomb or…
He was cut off there, probably because of the fact that him trying to claim that a reporter’s pen could’ve been some sort of James Bond Spy Pen is an absolutely ridiculous statement.
The people of Twitter also agreed that it was a ludicrous speculation and came up with some A+ responses:

@realDonaldTrump whatever it is, it's probably too big for you to grasp.

Well done Twitter, you did it again.
This whole election run up is probably one of the most ridiculous in all of American history. The fact that Trump and Ted Cruz have been wife shaming each other on Twitter just says it all.
