Trump Campaign Fires Corey Lewandowski – Who Made The Call?

It was just another Monday in the Trump campaign. Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager with a chip on his shoulder, ran the 8:30 am campaign conference call as usual. Less than an hour later, Lewandowski was being shown the door.

“The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign,” the campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said in a statement. “The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”

In other words…

Two people briefed on the move, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that Mr. Lewandowski was fired.

The campaign manager was seen as having a hostile relationship with many members of the national press corps who cover Mr. Trump, and many officials at the Republican National Committee had strained relationships with him.

And Mr. Lewandowski was often at odds with Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, Paul Manafort, who was brought on in March when the candidate seemed poised for a lengthy fight over delegates.

While Lewandowski had butted heads with Manafort, and had the misdemeanor battery grabbing incident with reporter Michelle Fields, nothing seemed to shake Trump’s reliance on him. Until today. So, what happened?

Apparently, Lewandowski had not learned the first rule: Never take sides against the family.

For those who don’t know, Jared Kushner is Ivanka Trump’s husband.

But lest you think that Lewandowski is just going to fade away quietly… he’s also a delegate to the Republican convention from the state of New Hampshire. And Team Trump can’t fire him from that.

Could Lewandowski still make trouble at the convention? It seems unlikely, as he is now toxic without the blessing of Trump.

However, it looks like we’ve found the one woman who Donald Trump will listen to, and that’s Ivanka. And with her intervention, we are all better off.
