Lewandowski on Girl With Down Syndrome Separated From Mother: ‘Womp Womp’
Former Trump campaign chief Corey Lewandowski dismissed the story of a disabled girl separated from her mother as a result of the Trump administration’s family-separation policy at the southern border. “Womp womp,” Lewandowski said on Fox News in response to Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas mentioned that a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome was taken from her mother. “How dare you. How absolutely dare you, sir,” Petkanas said in response. Lewandowski justified the policy by saying it was the necessary result of illegal border crossings.
