Trump's former campaign manager ridiculed a report about a young girl with Down syndrome being thrown into a cage by border agents.
Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski mocked a report Tuesday about a young girl with Down syndrome who was forcibly separated from her parents and “put in a cage” as part of the Trump administration’s attack on immigrant families.
Lewandowski made the unthinkably cruel remarks during an appearance on Fox News Tuesday evening, after Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas recounted the story of the young girl, which was reported by the Wall Street Journal.
“I read today about a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was taken from her mother and put in a cage,” Petkanas said.
Rolling his eyes, Lewandowski responded, “Womp, womp.”
“Did you just say ‘womp, womp’ to a 10-year-old with Down syndrome being taken from her mother?” Petkanas shot back. “How dare you!”
Lewandowski tried to backpedal on his remarks after realizing that he had accidentally let his inner depravity slip out uncensored, but the damage was done.
As disgusting and reprehensible as his comments are, they aren’t exactly a surprise.
And lest we forget, he was the campaign manager for the guy who openly mocked a disabled reporter at a campaign rally.
