Remember Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager in 2016 — you know, the one who helped him get elected, but then got fired because he was arrested for battery after assaulting a female reporter? In case you forgot, here’s a little reminder.
We do try to forget about him, but every now and then he pops up on the radar, kind of like he did tonight when he went on Fox News and made such an ass out of himself that even host Kennedy had to call him out for it.
While discussing what Fox News has dubbed the “Whistleblower Showdown,” the conversation goes as follows:
‘“Corey?” Kennedy asked.
‘“Yes?” Lewandowski replied, after a momentary pause.
‘“Did you have merlot with dinner?”
‘“No!” Lewandowski said, chuckling. “Should I have?”
‘“You sound a little slurry,” Kennedy Replied.’
Corey ignored her comment and went on with his rant about the Ukraine controversy, but Kennedy didn’t let up and you (and probably Lewandowski too) could hear laughter coming from the Fox control room.
After she thanked him for being there, Kennedy suggested that maybe he might need “a cup of coffee,” while she took a BIG swig of her own.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t blame Lewandowski for getting drunk. Can you imagine having to defend Trump every day for a living? Merciful heavens, I’d go insane! Then again, Lewandowski was charged with assaulting a female, so he probably has issues anyway. Regardless of the reasoning, Twitter had fun with this interview, and we have a bunch of those responses for your reading pleasure:
