Embattled Trump Campaign Manager Trashed on Twitter After Being Praised at Victory Rally


trump lewandowskiDuring his victory night speech in Florida earlier, Donald Trump singled out campaign manager Corey Lewandowski for praise amid media scrutiny of his recent actions.

A week ago tonight, Lewandowski allegedly grabbed Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. Not only did he deny it (despite another reporter witnessing it, video corroborating it, and Fields tweeting out a picture of her bruised arm), but Lewandowski went on the attack in an attempt to discredit her on Twitter.

And then another report dropped today that Lewandowski actually has a history of abusive and sexist behavior.

So when Trump singled him out tonight for praise, politics Twitter didn’t pass up the opportunity for some mockery:

When Trump ranted about the “disgusting” and “horrible” press tonight, Lewandowski just grinned.

It’s worth noting that Trump’s speech tonight was billed as a press conference, but he didn’t take any press questions. A desire to avoid questions about Lewandowski may have had something to do with that. In the week since, Trump has given tons of TV interviews and hasn’t been asked about it in any of them.
