Corey Lewandowski: People Need A Preexisting Relationship To Understand How Trump Functions

The Washington Times reports:

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Wednesday that he’d be willing to consider a White House communications role. “If they want me to be helpful on the inside, I’d be willing to consider that. But the most important thing is you have to have people who surround the president who are on his agenda,” Mr. Lewandowski said on Fox News.

“Look, that’s a decision for the president to make and his team. You know I’ve been very clear, I want to make sure this president’s agenda gets done, which is tax reform and health care reform and building a wall on our Southern border, and all of the things that he pledged during the campaign,” he said.

Mr. Lewandowski said it would be easier for someone who has a “pre-existing” relationship with Mr. Trump to fill the role of White House communications director. Mike Dubke, the current communications director, announced Tuesday he would be leaving the White House in the near future for “personal reasons.”

More from Fox News:

Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, explained that it’s not just Democrats on Capitol Hill who are roadblocking the president’s agenda, but also individuals within his own party.

“President Trump was elected to change the country. And you can get on board that train or you can lose your next election, because – I can promise you this – the Democrats have a different agenda,” Lewandowski said. He argued that Democrats have forgotten about everyday Americans and that’s what helped propel Trump to the White House.

        Sad 🙂

  • Treant

    What? The only advantage is that Corey’s rep is already in shreds, so it’s not like this job will make it any worse.

    Maybe that’s what he means by “pre-existing condi…er, relationship.”

  • djcoastermark

    Those repubbles and their pre-existing conditions again. They seem to be stuck on that. However one type of pre, locks you out of health care, and the other type gets you in the door.

      • barrixines

        It’s an odd detail of French law. I think it happens in China too. In France, it doesn’t entitle you to the usual laws of family inheritance but it could possibly entitle him to a widow’s pension and insurance payments. It could just be a matter of pragmatism.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    This is just so funny, White House statement from Hope Hicks:

    “President Trump has a magnetic personality and exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him. He has an unparalleled ability to communicate with people, whether he is speaking to a room of three or an arena of 30,000. He has built great relationships throughout his life and treats everyone with respect. He is brilliant with a great sense of humor . . . and an amazing ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible.”

    Corey, try and top that!

      Kellyanne Goebbels could not have said it better!

      • Andymac3

        Old Kellyham must be sharpening her talons and cursing under her breath with all these younger pantene hair models stealing her man. Huckabee is more of a Dove ‘any size’ but she can still whip her hair back without splitting the ends, poor Kellyham.

    • GayOldLady

      Meet Hope Hicks, Trump’s 29 year old Director of White House Strategic Communications. Any alarms going off?

      • GayOldLady

        My guess is she’s the reason Melania is not spending much time with Trump. Hicks travels with Trump everywhere he goes.

        • Skokieguy [Larry]

          Do you really think that Trump is sexually active? I do think he likes pretty women around as scenery and to bolster what he thinks is his macho image (just like Putin being photographed hunting or on a horse).

          But his seemingly mentally ill behavior could be explained by decades long methamphetamine use (i.e ‘diet pills’ which would explain why a ‘amazingly healthy’ man’s physician is a gastroenterologist).

          • GayOldLady

            I don’t think that Roger Ailes was sexually active either, but that didn’t stop his lecherous behavior toward women. DJT said on numerous occasions that women over 35 are too old for him, so Hope is the right age. I’ve had friends who worked in a Nursing home and talked about how lecherous some of the old men were. Old men who couldn’t perform sexually, but were somehow driven to act out sexually. Maybe he’s still into the showers. 🙂

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            Good point and if he has legitimate issues that interfere, the anger and frustration may make him even more likely to act out – which he has a long history of anyhow.

      • Treant

        She looks like a younger, prettier, more open-legged, gold-diggier version of Melanoma!

        • GayOldLady

          According to Wiki, she’s his longest serving political Aide. Wiki didn’t say what sort of political “aide” she’s giving him.

          • Andymac3

            Well, going by her White House statement, she gives him good head swelling.

      • JT

        She’ll try to grab all the publicity. He’ll be grabbing the usual.

      • Karl Dubhe

        At least we know the Republicans will impeach over a blow job. Now we’ll find out if they’ll impeach a Republican for the same.

          The verbal bj that the press release represents is as close as he’ll get to actual sex.

          • Karl Dubhe

            Oh, you can felate the dead…

            I wish I didn’t know that, but I do.

      • Acronym Jim

        Now we know why Melania keeps slapping Trump’s hand away recently.

      • trouble94114

        I wonder if Ivanka is jealous or happy?

      That sounds like something an 18 year old girl would write about the 50 year old College Professor she’s sleeping with.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        Or something Trump suggested and she fluffed up to laughable proportions to earn his praise.

    • GayOldLady

      “exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him.”

      Penicillin will treat that!!!!

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        I think hazmat suits might be warranted.

      Another Drumpf bimbo.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        I think the word you’re looking for is Strumpet.

        • Andymac3

          Strumpet, a nice bit of crumpet gone moldy.

    • kareemachan

      Well…. she grew up with Fuckabee, so maybe she believes it? Or maybe she popped two Valium before writing it?

    • Rex

      “Treats everyone with respect” – WTF? Seriously, has she met Trump?

      • superindy

        Just read an excellent article which states he is the most mocked man in the world. And that is true.

    • Steverino

      Now we know who wrote Sean Spicer’s unctuous peon to Trump at the beginning of his presser yesterday.

      • Dagoril

        I the word you were looking for was “paean” hehe. Spicer himself is an unctuous peon 😉

    • nocadrummer

      Has he EVER had a crowd of 30,000? I don’t think there were THAT many at his inauguration!

    “Democrats have forgotten about everyday Americans and that’s what helped propel Trump to the White House.”

    It doesn’t help that many everyday Americans have forgotten that Fox News is not always siding with reality.

  • lymis

    “But the most important thing is you have to have people who surround the president who are on his agenda’

    No, asshole, the most important thing is to have competent people who care about the damn country. If that means they’re at odds with the president’s agenda, then the president either needs to change his agenda, or we need to change the president.

    The jokes write themselves.

  • Rex

    Good luck finding people with a pre-existing relationship with Trump that isn’t corrupt.

  • Rex

    I’m thinking a lot of the people that fell for Trump’s con job and voted for him didn’t think he’d hit them the hardest – but they got what they wanted, and the most corrupt crazy man ever elected in office to boot.

  • TexasBoy

    “…you have to have people who surround the president who are on his agenda,”

    In other words mindless “yes” men. I wonder if we could get Disney to build about 50 animatrons to fill that role, of course, we could build a duplicate of the White House on a deserted island, and fill it with the androids…move Trump there and he’d be in Nirvana. Then we could have a do-over election.

    • superindy

      Oh THAT agenda. The one that reads…If Obama did it….destroy it.

  • Leo

    OT: The man arrested with guns at Trump Hotel says he’s a military vet with PTSD. :/

    No, Corey, the people who voted for drumpster did so because he promised to make Murrica white and xtian again.

    Oh yeah, and the 1% richer.

  • geoffalnutt

    Trump took his orders from Putin He was told to destroy America – or there’s that pesky “kompromat” stuff – and that must NEVER get out. His war on America is actually Putin’s.

  • BobSF_94117

    Logically, then, the only person who ever understood Trump was his mother.

    Anyway, NYC is full of people who have had a “preexisting relationship” with Donald Trump, and most of them despise him.

    It’s not him, Corey, it’s you…

    • safari

  • Halou

    Does Trumpcare cover preexisting relationships?

  • “President Trump was elected to change the country.” No he wasn’t. He lost the popular vote by three million votes.

  • -M-

    Neither Trump nor Lewandowski have ever cared about ‘everyday Americans’ and they wouldn’t know how to help them if they wanted to.

  • Andymac3

    Corey can’t hide his stupidity. He made a mockery of CNN for a few months while he was a talking head on there. Now if it was Katrina Pierson was throwing her mouth back in the mix I would be very bothered.

  • safari

    Those aren’t covered.

  • 2patricius2

    “President Trump was elected to change the country. And you can get on board that train or you can lose your next election, because – I can promise you this – the Democrats have a different agenda,” Lewandowski said.

    #45 was elected to fulfill promises he never intended to keep. He was not elected to destroy the country, and the world and the people in the country and the world. He was elected by an Electoral College that put the interests of the powerful, and their party ahead of their country. He was elected due to interference by a foreign power, and the conniving of Republican politicians to disenfranchise large numbers of their citizens.

    Does a pre-existing relationship make you ineligible for Trumpcare or is is a prerequisite?

  • andrew

    Corey misspoke. Some of the horrors on Trump’s agenda are huge tax cuts for the super rich. gutting Medicaid, destroying our Nutrition Assistance programs, depriving 23 million lower income people of health insurance, undermining NATO while ignoring Putin’s goal of reestablishing the Russian Empire, undermining attempts to deal with the catastrophic problem of climate change, and, of course, self aggrandizement at all costs.

    >Corey Lewandowski: People Need A Preexisting Relationship To Understand How Trump Functions

    I don’t care. I’m too busy caring about the consequences of his actions.

  • Lars Littlefield

    I had my pre existing relationship with Trump removed. I feel about 295 lbs lighter.

    • Vinnie NYC

      Only 295 lbs dear ?

      • Lars Littlefield

        I’m feeling generous today.

  • Jim Maloney

    Presidents don’t lead by having others interpret them for us. We see his actions and words. He’s a fake, a fraud. We get it.


  • labdad95

    My insurance doesn’t cover that.

  • Gianni

    I can’t figure how or why these idiots actually believe and keep saying that – Trump is “so good at communicating.” HUH? Is that why we need continuing reinterpretations of his utterings?
