I guess all that ugliness with threatening to stab someone, accusations of sexual assault and extramarital affairs are just water under the bridge now. Look who Trump hired to take out one of his critics: Lewandowski’s New Gig: Get Rid of Gov. Sununu
On the Howie Carr radio show Wednesday, Trump advisor Corey Lewandowski said his old boss has given him a new job: Get rid of Gov. Chris Sununu.
“When we spoke earlier in the day, you told me that [President Trump] assigned you a couple of duties and one is in your home state of New Hampshire,” Carr said to Lewandowski. “What’s your assignment for President Trump in New Hampshire?”
“The president is very unhappy with the chief executive officer of the state of New Hampshire, Chris Sununu,” Lewandowski replied. “And Sununu, in the president’s estimation, is someone who’s never been loyal to him. And the president said it would be really great if somebody would run against Chris Sununu.”
Lewandowski said Trump has given him two jobs in the Granite State.
“One is making sure we’ve got a great candidate in U.S. Senate race who can beat Maggie Hassan, another failed, hack, Washington, DC politician who never delivered. And the second is potentially finding someone to run against Chris Sununu, to make sure they understand that the ‘America First’ agenda is more than just a saying. It’s actually about putting people first and listening to what constituents have to say,” Lewandowski said.
It doesn't sound like Lewandowski is having much luck, as "no serious primary challengers have emerged to take on Sununu." Lewandowski also reportedly pushed back on the notion that he's been banned from Mar-a-Lago following the sexual assault allegations.
Why would Trump ban him? They're two peas on a pod. We'll see how things work out for the GOP with Trump continuing to push the party further and further to the right with candidates that may do well in their primaries, but not so well in a general election for statewide office.
