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.”

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
