Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is joining CNN as a political commentator, according to a source familiar with the arrangement.
It’s a salaried position and will make Lewandowski exclusive to CNN, effective immediately.
Trump fired Lewandowski on Monday, ending the tenure of the fiery operative who faced a steady string of controversies while guiding Trump’s skeleton campaign operation to a shocking victory in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. That same afternoon, his first in-studio interview was with CNN’s Dana Bash (an NBC News reporter caught up with him outside of Lewandowski’s apartment as he headed down to the studio).
Gott in Himmel.
Well, the staff meetings are going to be a lot more interesting.
