As the latter was talking about a young girl with Down Syndrome who had been separated from her mother by authorities, Lewandowski - who Trump is eyeing to replace John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff say some - could be heard snarking, "whomp, whomp". But Lewandowski was unmoved, responding with a derisive "sad trombone" sound - "womp, womp!" as Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo described it.
The story was repeated by another Fox panellist, Zac Petkanas.
Meanwhile, Petkanas asked Lewandowski: "How dare you?"
And just when you thought the level of heartlessness surrounding this issue had reached its peak, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski opened his mouth during a Tuesday segment on Fox News. Earlier, he made the false claim on Twitter that the separation of families at the border began under former President Obama, writing, "It's offensive that the MSM doesn't want to talk about the fact that these policies were started under Obama". "The difference now is they are accompanied minors, but the Trump Administration is forcibly making them unaccompanied minors when they take them from their parents and put them in cages". The president has doubled down on his stance, maintaining the policy while falsely spewing blame at congressional Democrats.
"Speaking of not being a patsy or a pushover, you ever watch Corey Lewandowski on the shows?" Videgaray said the girl had been travelling with her mother and brother when the children were separated from their mother by border police.
CNN previously reported that Department of Homeland Security officials said last week that the policy has caused the separation of at least 2,000 children from their parents. Children are taken from their parents and placed in temporary detention centers while their parents are detained and forced to meander the immigration court system.
