President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has been fired… again. This time it wasn’t by Trump. Conservative cable channel One American News Network gave Lewandowski the boot, according to The Daily Beast.
Citing “three sources with knowledge of the situation,” the Beast reported that Lewandowski was let go because he appeared on Fox News and other networks too often. A source told the Beast that appearing on too many competitor networks is a “big no-no” with the OANN’s leadership.
OANN CEO Robert Herring declined to comment further but didn’t deny that Lewandowski was fired when contacted by the Beast. When asked if he had any reason to dispute the report, he responded, “I have none whatsoever.”
Lewandowski joined the network in January and is no stranger to switching jobs. He was then-candidate Trump’s first campaign manager but was fired in June 2016. A group of female media members sent a request to Trump, urging him to fire Lewandowski after he appeared to grab Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields at a Trump rally.
Lewandowski landed at CNN less than a week after being fired by Trump. He played the role of CNN’s Trump supporter for a few months and stepped down from his role at the network shortly after Election Day.
