Corey Lewandowski doesn’t fall for Sacha Baron Cohen’s race-baiting prank

Womp. Womp. Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski foiled Sacha Baron Cohen’s race-baiting ploy when the comedian mock-interviewed him for the satirical Showtime series “Who is America?”

Cohen tried to goad Lewandowski into praising a fictional group called the Rastafarian Lobby while posing as a far-right conspiracy theorist named Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr.

To his credit, Lewandowski didn’t take the bait and somehow managed to keep a straight face. As BizPac Review previously reported, numerous politicians have been tricked by Cohen, who does not identify himself as a prankster when conducting his interviews.

“The Rastafarian Lobby is behind a lot of the major military decisions of the last 30 years,” Cohen joked in a Southern accent wearing a disguise.

“The invasion of Iraq is because the Rastafarian lobby, their leader, General Robert Marley, suggested that they had developed over 45,000 Buffalo soldiers. These dreadlocked Rastas…were marching through Africa into the heart of America, and the plan was to take them into Iraq.”

The whole point of Sacha Baron Cohen’s show is to embarrass and con people, usually public figures, into saying or doing embarrassing things. Like Lewandowski, not everyone falls for his stunts.

Cohen did not share an excerpt showing Corey Lewandowski responding to his “Rastafarian Lobby” gag, but did tweet a clip of the former Trump aide saying he has never heard President Trump say anything racist.

“I had the privilege of standing and sitting next to candidate Trump — and now the president— for thousands of hours over my tenure running his campaign,” Lewandowski recounted. “Never, ever, ever did I ever hear him utter a racist word in his life. Ever.”

 

While the liberal media are mocking Lewandowski, his words backing President Trump mirror those of former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman — before she got fired.

Omarosa is now calling Trump a racist in order to promote her anti-Trump book.  But until she was fired by the White House in December 2017, Manigault Newman repeatedly praised Donald Trump and touted him as a champion for minorities.

Omarosa has a long history of being fired from White House jobs, as BizPac Review has reported. In 2004, Omarosa was ousted from four jobs in two years during the Clinton administration.

“She was asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive,” said Cheryl Shavers, the former under-secretary for technology at the Commerce Department, where Omarosa worked for a few weeks in 2000. “One woman wanted to slug her.”

Speaking of liars and grifters, DNC co-chair Keith Ellison was accused of beating up his ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan. She says she has video and text proof of his abuse.
