Just when you thought it couldn’t get any lower, here comes Corey Lewandowski.
During a Tuesday night Fox News appearance, the pugnacious former Trump campaign manager dismissively brushed off the story of a ten-year-old girl with Down Syndrome being removed from her mother at the border due to the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
After Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas mentioned the heartbreaking story of the girl being separated from her family, Lewandowski had only one reaction: “Womp, womp.”

Yes. For real. That is how a close ally of the president reacted to a family being torn apart.
“How dare you?!” Petkanas exclaimed. “How absolutely dare you, sir!”
Meanwhile, Lewandowski maintained an indignant pose as he justified his response by pointing to the need to stop illegal border crossings.
As you would expect, Twitter had a lot to say about Lewandowski’s reaction:

There is no low to which this coward Corey Lewandowski won’t sink. This man should not be afforded a national platform to spew his hate. https://t.co/M8adu7P2sf
