Former Trump campaign manager tweets background to 'wah-wah' comment

Former Trump campaign manager tweets background to 'wah-wah' comment

On Tuesday night, Lewandowski appeared on Fox News with Democratic National Committee adviser, Zac Petkanas.

At one point, Petkanas referenced a 10-year-old girl with Down Syndrome who had been separated from her family.

"Did you say "wah, wah" to a 10-year-old with Down syndrome?" an enraged Petkanas, a former rapid response director for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, asked Lewandowski. An incensed Petkanas repeatedly stated to Lewandowksi, "how dare you?!"

Then there's Corey Lewandowski, President Trump's former campaign manager.

Don't Panic: Here's Why Trump's China Trade War Won't Happen
Security guards walk in front of containers at the Yangshan Deep Water Port in Shanghai, China on April 24, 2018. The Commerce Ministry criticized Trump's order to prepare tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods as blackmail.

"I think that was a bad mistake", said Scaramucci, who shares a good relationship with Lewandowski, on WABC's "Bernie and Sid in the Morning" in NY.

Lewandowski, who was sacked from the Trump campaign in 2016 but has since regained the president's support, stood firm on his stance Wednesday morning as criticism of his comments grew.

SMITH: But, to be clear, you were not speaking about the young girl with Down syndrome that was separated from her parents at the border? "I know you, you're a parent, it's a hard situation for us as Americans to see this happening at our border".

"We need Democrats to act with us and pass more funding to fund those detention facilities", she said.

Mickelson Steps Out of Character at U.S. Open
What everyone might remember most about Mickelson's time here in Southampton is his freakish actions on hole No. 13. At that time, I just didn't feel like going back and forth, hitting the same shot over.

"An apology? I owe an apology to the children whose parents are putting them in a position that is forcing them to be separated?" he said during a Wednesday appearance on Fox News.

The US President has said that he sees no other option to family separations to ensure that illegal immigrants don't "pour into" the US and "infest" the country.

Lewandowski's defense of the policy was also troublesome because the super PAC he works for received a $5,000 contribution from the GEO Group, which helps run the kind of immigration detention centers that Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy use.

"The administration's current family separation policy is an affront to the decency of the American people, and contrary to principles and values upon which our nation was founded", McCain recently said.
