Lewandowski’s Incoherent Defense of Trump

Lewandowski’s Incoherent Defense of Trump October 30, 2017

Corey Lewandowski may have been fired as Trump’s campaign manager last year, but he remains a loyal lapdog, dutifully saying the most asinine things in order to defend his former boss. If you can’t spot the obvious contradiction in this statement, you should probably just give up thinking forever.


“Speculation is so insane right now,” Lewandowsky offered. “What we should be focused on right now are the continuing lies of the Clinton administration.”

“The continued fallacies that they perpetuate,” he continued as he built up a head of steam. “Look, Robert Mueller is doing his job, whatever that may entail. And he has filed charges against somebody, although we don’t know what they are. We don’t know if they are felony charges. We don’t know if they are against one or multiple people.”

“Let me be very very clear, I am certain of this, this has nothing to do with the president,” Lewandowski insisted. “If there were players on the outside that had a periphery or a small role of some type in the campaign, my guess is these charges have nothing to do with the campaign because I was there, there was no collusion, cooperation or coordination with Russia. So, let’s see what Mueller does, but the dam is not breaking. The only thing that is breaking are the Democrats.”

So in one sentence he says that we don’t know who the charges are against or what they’re for, and in the very next sentence he announces his certainty that it has “nothing to do with the president.” And since this was said on Fox and Friends, of course no one called him on the obvious contradiction. This is how absurd our political discourse has become. People go on national television and say things like this with a completely straight face and half the country nods in agreement.
