Anybody surprised by this move? The hiring of Lewandowski by CNN was a joke for a variety of reasons. First of all, Lewandowski was not brought on to be an “analyst.” He was hired to be a shill for Trump, nothing more. Second, CNN should have canned him when they found out he was still collecting checks from the Trump campaign.
Now that Trump has won, Lewandowski has bolted.
Corey Lewandowski, the controversial Donald Trump campaign manager turned CNN commentator, resigned from CNN on Friday afternoon.
The resignation is effective immediately. A CNN spokeswoman confirmed that Lewandowski is no longer serving as a contributor to the network.
Lewandowski has stayed in close touch with Trump and some top Trump aides since being fired from the campaign in June. This week there has been media discussion about Lewandowski possibly taking a role in the Trump administration.
Lewandowski did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Earlier on Friday, Lewandowski was seen arriving at Trump Tower, where the president-elect is holding transition meetings.
Have to love it. The clown gets fired from the campaign. CNN is stupid enough to hire him. He still collects checks from Trump while doing “analysis” with CNN. He then quits when Trump wins with the apparent reason being he’s likely been promised some role in the Trump administration.
