Yes, Corey Lewandowski Still Loves the Patriots

The former Trump campaign manager exchanged pleasantries with a fellow Tom Brady fan on the streets of Washington, D.C.

Corey Lewandowski—controversial Harvard fellow, Ivanka Trump enemy, ousted presidential campaign manager—still loves TB12.

According to some careful reporting by Politico, in a show of the utmost camaraderie, the Lowell native yelled “Tom Brady baby!” to a passerby in Washington, D.C., after said passerby shouted “Go Patriots!” on Monday. The united fans of Touchdown Tom allegedly convened at the corner of 15th Street and Pennsylvania Ave., spitting-distance from the White House’s South Lawn (a great place to stretch and get pliable!) and less than half a mile from the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts.

The exchange is probably the nicest thing anyone has yelled at Lewandowski in public in the last two years. The former Trump campaign manager has had a rocky time in the public eye. There was a March 2016 incident when he was charged with battery in Jupiter, Florida for grabbing a former Breitbart reporter, and he was also accused of getting physical with a protester at a campaign rally. He lost his job with Team Trump a few months later, and more recently, he was accused of touching the conservative singer Joy Villa without her consent.

Ahead of last year’s Super Bowl, Lewandowski told NBC Boston that Trump and Brady were golf buddies, and implied that Trump, who read a letter from Bill Belichick at a rally the night before the election, would be supporting the Pats. Trump famously left the Super Bowl party he was attending before the Patriots began their historic comeback.

Unlike Lewandowki’s passion for the Pats, Dorchester native Mark Wahlberg said he “would be fine” if the Eagles won the Lombardi Trophy. Whatever, Mark. Who needs the support of the problematic Wahlberg when you’ve got Lewandowski and former press secretary and crowd-size aficionado Sean Spicer on your side?
