Hey, the man has a family and needs a paycheck. Ted Cruz’s guy went to MSNBC when he was let go. These guys have mouths to feed, just like everyone else. Do I like the guy? No. I would have taken the first thing that popped on my radar too if the first day of the month is coming and the mortgage is due.
Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is joining CNN as a political commentator, according to a source familiar with the arrangement.
It’s a salaried position and will make Lewandowski exclusive to CNN, effective immediately.
Trump fired Lewandowski on Monday, ending the tenure of the fiery operative who faced a steady string of controversies while guiding Trump’s skeleton campaign operation to a shocking victory in the 2016 Republican presidential primary. That same afternoon, his first in-studio interview was with CNN’s Dana Bash (an NBC News reporter caught up with him outside of Lewandowski’s apartment as he headed down to the studio).
Following his interview with Bash on Monday, Lewandowski went straight from the set and into a meeting with CNN executives, according to a source who witnessed Lewandowski enter the meeting.
Though CNN is often the target of Trump’s insults, Trump has a history with CNN president Jeff Zucker. Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice” premiered on NBC in 2004, when Zucker was president of NBC’s television group. In an interview with POLITICO earlier this month, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said Trump had once called Zucker his “personal booker.” (CNN declined to respond to Scarborough’s comments.)
