he campaign manager doesn't fall far from the president, it seems.
Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has been accused of sexual assault, and to say we're not surprised would be an understatement. Trump himself has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by 19 women.
That doesn't really have anything to do with the accusations against Corey Lewandowski, but we're just going to bring them up every day until something is done about them.
But back to the story at hand — the Lewandowski accusations are terrible in their very own way.
Singer and Trump supporter Joy Villa has accused Corey Lewandowski of sexual assault.
Villa has filed a complaint with the police against Lewandowski and plans to meet with the Washington Metropolitan Police Department about it next week.
Villa — whose potential bid for congressional office has been endorsed by Donald Trump himself — says that Trump's former campaign manager slapped her behind several times at a party in late November.
Villa was at a holiday party at the Trump International Hotel in Washington when a friend brought her over to introduce her to Corey Lewandowski. They had never met before.
In an interview with Politico, Villa explained that she thought Lewandowski seemed dismissive of her and rolled his eyes when he thought she wanted to take a photo with him.
“I said, if you’re busy, don’t worry about it, we don’t have to take a photo,” Villa said, but someone pushed her toward him and they ended up posing for a photo anyway.
“I’m wearing this silver suit and stretchy pants, and after the photo, he smacks my ass really hard,” Villa told Politico. “It was completely demeaning and shocking.”
Villa didn't let the incident go. In the moment, she confronted him. "I said, 'Watch it.' Half-joking, I said, 'I can report you for sexual harassment.'"
“He said, ‘Go ahead, I work in the private sector.’ Then he smacks my ass again.”
What unbelievable grossness.
One of Villa's friends witnessed the incident and corroborated the details of the story.
However, this friend wanted to remain anonymous — partly because Lewandowski is still close to the president and still very influential in those circles.
After, Lewandowski laughed in Villa’s face “and ran away.”
“It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever experienced,” Villa said. “It was shocking and gross.”
But it seems like Villa’s story may not be the only one of its kind…
