Trump's former right-hand man does just what you'd expect him to.
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski threw a tantrum when he was asked to apologize for mocking a little girl with Down syndrome.
On Tuesday night’s edition of Fox News’ “The Story,” Lewandowski shocked many when he reacted to the story of a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was ripped away from her mother by making “womp womp” noises.
Lewandowski was back on Fox News Wednesday morning, where anchor Sandra Smith asked Lewandowski if he should apologize for his performance.
“There are some who saw your words last night as overlooking an individual, when there are so many affected by this,” Smith said. “Do you feel that you owe an apology of any sort?”
“An apology?” Lewandowski angrily replied. “I owe an apology to the children whose parents are putting them in a position that is forcing them to be separated.”
“We owe an apology to Jamiel Shaw and Brian Terry and Kate Steinle’s family, who have allowed those individuals to be killed by illegal aliens,” Lewandowski continued, referencing victims of crime whom Trump has repeatedly exploited in order to falsely demonize immigrants.
“The American people owe an apology to those people,” he said. “When you cross the border illegally, you have committed a crime, and there is accountability for committing crimes, and there should be.”
Earlier in the interview, Lewandowski claimed he had been “mocking” Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas for “politicizing” personal tragedy by bringing up the little girl’s story.
But Lewandowski exposed that claim himself by citing three personalized anecdotes during the rant in which he refused to apologize.
At best, Lewandowski is mocking people for bothering to care about a disabled child who has been ripped away from her mother. And at worst, he’s mocking the little girl. But true to Trumpian form, Lewandowski refuses to apologize for either.
