Former Trump campaign manager mocks girl with Down syndrome

Former Trump campaign manager mocks girl with Down syndrome

During a Fox News Channel panel, Democratic strategist Zac Petkanas described how this girl was taken away from her mom at the border - prompting Lewandowski to make a sad trombone sound: "Whuh, whuh".

Lewandowski interrupted, mockingly interjecting, "womp womp".

Corey Lewandowski dismissed the story of a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was reportedly separated from her mother after crossing the border illegally.

"How dare you. How absolutely dare you, sir", an outraged Petkanas replied, after Lewandowski's "womp womp" response, which may be seen in the video below.

"What I said is you can pick anything you want. but the bottom line is very clear: When you cross the border illegally, you have given up the rights of this country", Lewandowski said while Petkanas was saying "How dare you".




"How dare you? How dare you?".

During a press conference on Tuesday, Mexico's Foreign Affairs Minister Luis Videgaray remarked, "From conviction and by constitutional obligation, we can not remain indifferent before an inhumane and cruel situation".

"The Mexican government in no way promotes illegal migration", Videgaray told reporters at a Mexico City news conference. Videgaray said the girl and her brother were sent to a United States facility in McAllen, Texas, while her mother went to one an hour away in Brownsville.

Among those who immediately condemned Lewandowski's comments was former Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who tweeted, "There is no low to which this coward Corey Lewandowski won't sink".
