    The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur called Breitbart News an “embarrassment” when speaking with TheWrap about his recent interview with Bernie Sanders.


    Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has been arrested for battery in connection with the incident that had Uygur fired up, involving a Breitbart News reporter.


    “They didn’t back their reporter at all. They fired their reporter basically after she got assaulted by Donald Trump,” Uygur said. “We would be in the opposite direction. We would back our guys 100 percent.”


    Uygur also called the GOP frontrunner a “media-absorbing monster” and said he would take legal action if a Trump staffer laid hands on one of his reporters.

    “We would tell our reporters, as we have throughout, to be as aggressive as possible with each candidate. That’s their job. They’re supposed to be the watchdogs of the government and politicians,” Uygur said. “If they respond with violence, I can guarantee you we’re going to file charges.”
