Lewandowski: Controversy Over Trump’s Star of David Tweet Is ‘Political Correctness Run Amok’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former campaign manager for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump Corey Lewandowski, now a CNN contributor, said the controversy over a tweet from his former boss which showed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton next to a Star of David shape was “political correctness run amok.”

Lewandowski said, “A tweet is a simple tweet. the bottom line is you can read into things that are not there … it’s the same star that sheriff’s departments use to representation law enforcement. To read into something that isn’t there is — that’s the mainstream media trying to attack Donald Trump for something that really isn’t there. They put a new tweet up with a circle. The message is the same. Look at the message. The message is that Hillary Clinton is corrupt.”

He added, “The bottom line is, this is political correctness run amok. If it would have been a star next to Hillary Clinton without the cash behind it, no one would be questioning this. This is the mainstream media trying to read into something.”
