Donald Trump’s former aide Corey Lewandowski is expected to return to the swamp house, working under Vice President Mike Pence’s political action committee.
Lewandowski, who served as Trump’s first campaign manager, was reportedly dumped in the summer of 2016 after he manhandled a Breitbart reporter, but according to sources, he’s now leaving the pro-Trump dark-money group America First Policies and embarking on a new Trump administration adventure.
His new position, essentially, will enable him to travel with Pence and puts him firmly back in the president’s 2020 reelection orbit, as reported by NBC News.
Despite his ouster from Trump-world, Lewandowski was never far away from the White House. His first job in Washington D.C. was at his own lobbying shop with sweeping views of the White House. That venture soon went down in flames, when Lewandowski quit after it became obvious he wasn’t actually draining the swamp, but profiting off of his proximity to the president.
It is truly appalling that the Trump administration is recycling grifters less than 2 years in; the West Wing can’t get enough of second-rate political filth. It will also be interesting to see how Lewandowski transitions from working directly under Trump to now Pence. Trump and Lewandowski have a strangely disturbing bromance going on, so Trump reluctantly would let his aide get away with anything. Pence may or may not use that same method as he is known to not always follow Trump’s path–which undoubtedly—will set off the president.
