Few people have managed to last in Donald Trump’s political world longer than Corey Lewandowski. That is not to say that the adviser has not faced controversy in the past.

Lewandowski was initially fired by the Trump campaign in 2016 after numerous physical altercations at rallies. In 2019, the adviser was called out by Fox personality Kennedy for appearing on her show drunk.

And this week, news broke of sexual harassment claims against Lewandowski. He was fired by the Trump team on Wednesday night. This morning, Maggie Haberman revealed the real reason Lewandowski got the axe.

The New York Times scribe tweeted, “A former Trump adviser makes the point that Lewandowski has been accused of a wide range of this kind of behavior for years – what moved Trump was that it was hard for Lewandowski to raise money now, and that Trump is focused on advisers appearing to make $ off access to him.”

Haberman continued, “Key is anyone saying they “control” Trump or his orbit. While there are a number of people who believe that to be true about themselves, when it gets said aloud, it provokes a reaction.”
