In June, when Donald Trump let go his top campaign advisor Corey Lewandowski, I’m sure the mainstream media was just itching to grab hold of him, hoping that he would reveal damaging secrets of the GOP candidate. It has proven to be just the opposite, however, as Corey has actually defended Donald Trump in several media snafus since his departure from the campaign.
Perhaps loyalty is still alive in politics, since Donald Trump stuck by Corey after he was accused of “man handling” Michelle Fields several months ago. Corey has stated that he will always be grateful to Trump for sticking by him during that time, as the media crucified him and called for his resignation.
Maybe good deeds do get rewarded, as Corey has come to Trump’s defense during this whole Khan debacle.
Corey’s media partner next to him does not look too happy…
The Hill reports:
Donald Trump‘s former campaign manager on Monday said that Khizr Khan’s son, Capt. Humayun Khan, would still be alive today if Trump had been president.Corey Lewandowski noted Trump’s long-standing opposition to the War in Iraq, where Humayun Khan was killed by a suicide bomber in 2004.”If Donald Trump were the president, Capt. Khan would have still be alive today because we never would have entered the Iraq War in the first place, we’ve been very clear about that,” Lewandowski said on CNN’s “New Day.”Trump has repeatedly railed against the Iraq War, conducted under George W. Bush, during his presidential bid. Last week he tweeted of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, “Hillary voted for the Iraq war, not me!”Still, Trump endorsed invading Iraq during a Sept. 11, 2002, radio interview, telling Howard Stern, “Yeah, I guess so.” Soon after the war started in 2003, Trump remarked on the “tremendous cost” of the war and by 2004 his opposition was “well documented,” according to FactCheck.org.For several days, Trump and his political allies have scrambled to respond to fallout over the candidate’s public feud with the parents of the slain soldier, who was Muslim.Khizr Khan denounced Trump’s views at last week’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
