‘I don’t know what he meant’: Corey Lewandowski flames out defending Trump’s ‘2nd Amendment’ remark
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s comments about “Second Amendment people” stopping Hillary Clinton are still a hot topic of discussion on cable news shows.
CNN on Wednesday went to former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to see if he could offer a good explanation for exactly what Trump meant with his latest outrageous remarks.
Long story short: He couldn’t.
“I don’t know what he meant,” Lewandowski said when asked by host Chris Cuomo to explain Trump’s declaration that “Second Amendment people” could stop Hillary Clinton from appointing judges after she gets elected as president.
Lewandowski quickly tried to pivot away from being unable to interpret the words of his former boss, but Cuomo wouldn’t let him off the hook so easily.
“Isn’t that a problem?” Cuomo asked. “If you don’t know where he’s going when he says something as President of the United States, is that really of no concern?”
Lewandowski responded by totally dodging the question.
“I think the larger issue is, what he was trying to do was rally those people who believe in the Second Amendment,” Lewandowski replied. “If you care about this election, you care about the Second Amendement… you have to make sure you’re united, you’re together, and you go to the ballot box and stop Hillary Clinton.”
Earlier in the segment, Lewandowski said that we should cut Trump some slack since he frequently talks in a “stream of conscious” style, which is not something that’s typically desirable in a president.
