Donald Trump supporter and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski defended Trump’s decision to shake up his staff late in the campaign by pointing out that John Kerry did the same, an odd argument considering Kerry would then go on to lose the election.
“Look, this campaign is not the first campaign to make staff changes,” Lewandowski said Friday on CNN. “If you look at John Kerry’s campaign, when he was running he was making changes as late as Labor Day. Don’t forget, we’re still in August.”
“He lost in 2004, Corey,” CNN’s Kate Bolduan retorted.
“No, I understand,” Lewandowski countered. “But that change in 2004 that John Kerry made helped him do significantly better than what he was doing.”
