Ben Howe, a leader of the dwindling so-called #NeverTrump group of moderate bloggers, pundits, and political consultants on the right, mocked the defenseless woman in San Jose whom protesters pelted with bottles, eggs, and food on Thursday night.

Howe, who is a RedState contributing editor, has been leading the growingly embarrassing so-called #NeverTrump movement of moderate “movement conservative” political consultants, pundits, and bloggers upset over Trump’s victory in the Republican primary. When he received backlash over his mocking of the woman covered in egg yolks thanks to anti-Trump protesters, he aimed to draw a moral equivalence between a woman being pelted with bottles and eggs and a reporter who had her arm grabbed while chasing a presidential candidate.

Then he tried to blame Donald Trump for the attack and claimed that throwing rocks and bottles are no worse than a glitterbomb or a Halloween prank.

Howe eventually admitted that maybe he had let his anger get the best of him and immediately claimed his moral superiority over “Trumpists” for his “introspection.”

Now Howe is trying to paint himself as the victim by retweeting all the mean things people on the internet said to him.
