Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s recently fired controversial campaign manager (due to his kids’ apparent intervention), is off to a frenzied start in his new position as a political commentator for CNN.
The news network scooped up the embattled former Trump operative just three days after the billionaire businessman’s campaign gave him the boot. Now, some CNN staff members are ready to give him the boot too.
CNN is facing inner-protest and anguish over company President Jeff Zucker’s decision to offer Lewandowski a high salaried position as an exclusive correspondent for the network. “CNN is facing a near internal revolt over the Corey hiring,” an unnamed source, described by Page Six as a “TV insider,” said, adding that many in the newsroom are “livid.”
“Female reporters and producers especially,” the source added. “They are organizing and considering publicly demanding [that Lewandowski be let go].”
