When Corey Lewandowski grabbed Michelle Fields and then lied about it, Donald Trump stood by his loyal aide. He made dark insinuations about Fields’ ninja assassin skills. He claimed the Secret Service said nothing happened. He lied his fat ass off about it, just like he lies his fat ass off about everything else.
But that was then, and this is now. Maggie Haberman, NYT:
Donald J. Trump is parting ways with his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, a move that comes as the presumptive Republican nominee faces challenges as he moves toward the general election.
“The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign,” the campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said in a statement. “The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”
And now, all the people who praised Trump for not firing that creep will praise him for firing that creep. Or, preferably, they’ll just shut up.
You’re on notice, Governor Christie. Hurry up fetching those Big Macs for your boss, or you could be next.
If revenge is a dish best served cold, Fields just unleashed a blizzard in June:

P.S. This guy works on the Trump campaign.

P.P.S. Coincidences are coincidental.
Trump's just-departed campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, told Hope Hicks, "you're fucking dead to me." https://t.co/wywfkqY9yQ
