Sign The Petition: Fire Corey Lewandowski! Ex-Team Trump Boss Mocks Disabled Child During Border Debate

On June 19, 2018, Corey Lewandowski mocked a disabled child who had been separated from her family due to the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy during a debate on Fox News. This type of behavior does not belong on television or anywhere in any civilized debate. 

Corey Lewandowski was Trump's first campaign manager and is a Fox News contributor.

Fox News must fire Corey Lewandowski now!

People are calling for T-Mobile to push out its adviser Corey Lewandowski after he mocked a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was taken from her mother at the US-Mexico border.
Lewandowski, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, appeared on Fox News' The Story With Martha MacCallum on Tuesday night to talk about the administration's separating members of some families that cross the US-Mexico border
Zak Petkanas, a Democratic strategist and fellow guest on the show, told the story of the 10-year-old girl being separated from her family. 

Lewandowski responded with, "Womp, womp," a sound generally conveying a lack of empathy, or suggesting a person got what they deserved or failed. 
"When parents commit crimes by coming into this country, regardless of who their children are, they are separated because we are a nation of laws," Lewandowski said on Fox on Wednesday, defending his earlier comment.
Lewandowski's comments prompted criticism on Twitter. Journalist and television host Megyn Kelly said in a tweet, "This man should not be afforded a national platform to spew his hate."

Others urged T-Mobile to fire Lewandowski.

"In light of Corey Lewandowski's recent chilling appearance on @FoxNews, it's time for both [T-Mobile and Vice President Mike Pence's PAC] to #FireCorey," said one tweet, utilizing a trending hashtag. 
"Our hearts and prayers go out to this child and her family during this unprecedented and trying time," Sara Hart Weir, president of the National Down Syndrome Society, reportedly said in a statement.
Lewandowski responded to what he claimed was "fake news," saying he "mocked a liberal who attempted to politicize children as opposed to discussing the real issue, which is fixing a broken immigration system."

T-Mobile didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
