Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski took some serious heat over his response to a fellow guest Tuesday night on CNN.
Despite being fired from the Trump campaign in 2016, Lewandowski appears to have regained the president's approval.
A former campaign manager for Donald Trump provoked an angry backlash on Tuesday night by apparently dismissing a story about a girl with Down's syndrome reportedly separated from her mother at the U.S. border with a sarcastic "Womp womp".More news: Bavarians give Merkel two weeks to reach EU deal on migrants
"Did you just say "womp, womp" to a 10-year-old with Down syndrome being taken from her mother?"
To which Lewandowski said: "Womp, womp". "How dare you, how absolutely dare you sir, 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". He said the girl is in McAllen, Texas, while the mother was taken to a center in Brownsville, Texas.
The story Petkanas was referring to involved a young girl with Down syndrome who was held in a detention facility away from her family in McAllen, Texas, despite her father being a legal USA resident.
