‘Sociopath Corey’: Lewandowski Torched For Mocking Disabled Migrant Girl Taken From Her Parents
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was on Fox News tonight, and responded to a story about a migrant child with down syndrome who was taken from her mother by mimicking trombone noises and saying “womp womp” — a remark that drew the ire of nearly every decent person on Twitter.
Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas, who was on Fox News when Lewandowski made the comment, shouted “how absolutely dare you, sir!” in response to theTrump shill’s vicious remark and fact checked him when he tried to blame the family separation policy on the Obama administration.
While others could not excoriate Lewandowski on live television, journalists, pundits, and other Twitter users torched him by calling him “Sociopath Corey,” comparing him to “garbage,” and even nailing Fox News anchor Sandra Smith for staying silent about the gross comment.
Below are a few of the best responses to the exchange:

Revolutionary idea. Stop having garbage humans like Corey Lewandowski on your shows. He brings nothing but hatred and lies.
You’ve got one hour a night. USE IT.
Fill it with activists. With organizers. With genuine progressive politicians.
Stop wasting your time and ours. pic.twitter.com/FQZU6ed3cC

In case you forgot, Corey Lewandowski is the Trump Campaign Manager who was charged with battery for assaulting a reporter (NOT the one currently sitting in jail).https://t.co/vwL2Bdvfzh

Morality is a foreign concept to @CLewandowski_. What a garbage thing to do to mock the plight of a young girl with Down Syndrome. Then again, what do you expect from a guy who assaults reporters https://t.co/a8eh7ApEkd

Listening to Corey Lewandowski, who assaulted a female reporter, mock a 10 year old with Down syndrome being torn from her family, I find myself thinking the only difference between these people and the worst regimes of the 20th century is what they can do, not what they would do https://t.co/2VJcZHQnep

Sure, Lewandowski was Trump’s campaign mgr. He also went on to be a paid political analyst for CNN & a fellow at Harvard. Various companies, including Lockheed Martin, have paid him for advice. And he’s reportedly worked w/ the DC lobbying giant BGR. This stain is on all of them. https://t.co/aPrrFXvjBk

Think @Lawrence just questioned why anyone would invite @CLewandowski_ on the air, but at least as of a few weeks ago, he was still a regular and welcome guest on @MeetThePress with @chucktodd. https://t.co/LpJJB0Qfhr
