Wow. That was fast.
Donald Trump fired his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski on Monday.
It’s Thursday and Lewandowski already got a new gig with CNN.
His title: Political commentator.
Trump advisor Michael Caputo tweeted, “Ding Dong the witch is dead!” He, too, was fired Monday within hours of Lewandowski’s departure.
The news was first broken by Politico‘s Hadas Gold.
Some at CNN may not be too thrilled about the hire — namely S.E. Cupp and Mary Katharine Ham.
Back in late March, Cupp and Ham and 14 other female reporters sent a letter to Trump asking him to fire Lewandowski for his “inexcusable, unprofessional” behavior.
“The logic behind CNN hiring Lewandowski is obvious: He’s the ultimate Trump ‘insider,’ remarked CNN’s “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter on Twitter. SOMEHOW CNN’s Stelter was able to “confirm” the news with CNN PR but he did give Gold a “h/t.”
Will be fun to see them all on air together.
