New York Times columnist Charles Blow reached his limit with Donald Trump advocate Corey Lewandowski Tuesday night, furiously attacking him after the former Trump campaign manager called him a “hypocrite.”
Appearing on a panel with host Don Lemon, Angela Rye and Scottie Nell Hughes, Lewandowski criticized comments made by Vice President Joe Biden saying if he was in high school he’d like to fight Trump.
According to Lewandowsky, “If my child did that, I’d be called to the principal’s office.”
That was when Blow jumped into the fray.
“I love the fact you’re opening the door of who said what best for children,” Blow lectured Lewandowsky. “But also, if your son said that he was going to grab a — one of the girls in class by the vagina, he would also be taken to the office. That is called sexual assault. Please don’t get that confused. If your son made fun of a handicapped classmate, he would also be called into the office or expelled.”
“So you’ll excuse the vice president because you’re such a hypocrite– “, Lewandowsky shot back — and then it was on.
“First of all, don’t call me a hypocrite, right? Because you obviously don’t understand — you don’t understand what the meaning of that word is if it comes out of your mouth,” Blow said with his voice rising. “I’m not going to call you names. The moment you start calling me a hypocrite about anything on national TV — you don’t have space, Corey!”
Speaking over Lewandowsky, Blow continued, “I don’t know what your role is. I don’t know what your function is. I don’t know if you’re working for the Trump campaign. I don’t know what comes out of your mouth and to what degree, but the moment you start with the personal attacks you’re going to get it right back!”
As an added bonus, Angela Rye got in a fair amount of shots at both Lewandowsky and Trump, complimenting the Trump booster for working with a “grown-ass man” who brags about assaulting women.

Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
‘Meanest and most disrespectful’ senator: Trump lashes out at Kamala Harris in latest presser
At Tuesday's White House press conference, President Donald Trump spent a considerable portion of the time attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was just announced to be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate.
Harris, complained Trump, was the "meanest and most disrespectful person in the U.S. Senate." He particularly dwelled on her sharp interrogation of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings.
Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
California bill to establish nation’s second public bank applauded as ‘historic challenge to Wall Street domination’
