This story has been updated.

After racking up another string of primary wins Tuesday night, Republican Donald Trump offered a familiar refrain railing against the party establishment and the media in a speech at his compound in Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump slammed “really disgusting” and “horrible people” in the media as his embattled campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, laughed on stage.

Lewandowski, who is accused of manhandling a Breitbart reporter, flanked the candidate at his right-hand side during the televised speech and was featured almost as prominently as Trump’s own son.

Trump did not take any questions from the media, a rarity for the press-savvy candidate on a victorious evening, and only addressed the ongoing controversy by gesturing at his manager to say, “Corey, good job, Corey.”

The billionaire also bemoaned the slew of recent negative ads targeting his campaign, saying, “nobody has ever, ever in the history of politics received the kind of negative advertising that I have” while allowing that the ads are “mostly,” but not all, false.
