It’s amazing to me that people still point cameras at Corey Lewandowski. He’s the washed-up hack who, at one point, was Donald Trump’s campaign manager. No, not the one who’s about to be dragged off to jail, the guy before that.
I think the weirdest part about still seeing Lewandowski on television is the fact that, even after all this time, he’s still under the impression that being loyal to Trump is somehow going to eventually pay off for him. Never mind that it literally hasn’t paid off for one single person so far, Corey is still convinced for some reason.
So it wasn’t really terribly surprising to see the one-time lobbyist and former candidate for the US House debasing himself further on one of the least-watched shows on Fox News, Watters’ World with surprise journalist Jesse Watters. The host was doing his predictable schtick of feigning outrage over someone actually questioning Donald Trump, which seems to be a favorite act among Fox anchors these days, despite the fact that literally everything Trump does lately makes the rest of the world question his actual sanity.
Watters was describing an exchange that the president had with an NBC reporter while he was in Seoul, South Korea in which the woman asked him about possibly increasing scrutiny of people attempting to get guns:
You’ve talked about wanting to put extreme vetting on people trying to come into the United States, but I wonder if you would consider extreme vetting for people trying to buy a gun?”
Trump’s idiotic response is irrelevant — it was more garbage about “good guys with guns,” anyway. And Watters, upon listening to the playback of the footage they had on hand, was disgusted all over again by the fact that someone DARED to think we didn’t have enough in the way of background checks. But Corey skipped all the bullshit entirely:
You know, when the president’s overseas, and he’s just south of a madman, why don’t we actually talk about the things that the world cares about? Which is containing that madman in North Korea.”
Totally, Corey. Nobody cares about gun control, or the mass shooting in Texas that happened a week ago and left 26 people dead. All that REAL Americans care about is “containing that madman” that Trump keeps calling names on Twitter.
Get bent, Corey.
Here, you can subject yourself to the exchange, if you really want to:
