Former Trump campaign boss Corey Lewandowski was unceremoniously dumped last month after he reportedly spent much of the time sparring with current Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
In the wake of the plagiarism controversy in Melania Trump’s speech on Monday evening, Lewandowski couldn’t resist using his platform on CNN to knife his former rival.
In discussing the speech, which clearly lifted at least a full paragraph from a speech Michelle Obama gave in 2008, Lewandowski said that whoever gave Melania’s speech the final sign off ought to resign from the campaign.
But then he took it a step further: When the CNN hosts ask if the person responsible for the speech should resign even if it’s Paul Manafort, Lewandowski didn’t hesitate.
“I think, if it was Paul Manafort, he’d do the right thing and resign,” Lewandowski said. “If he was the last person who saw this, and saw this happen, and has brought this on the candidate’s wife, I think he’d resign.”

Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
Chief Justice John Roberts issues New Year’s Eve warning to stand up for democracy
"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."
Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why
According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.
As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
