Corey Lewandowski was Trump’s campaign manager in 2016 and now serves as the pr*sident’s senior adviser.
Which means … IT’S NAZI TIME, YO!
LEWANDOWSKI: “Hey, this is a message for the Alpha Freedom Friends. This is Corey Lewandowski. You know me as President Trump’s 2016 campaign manager and his current 2020 senior adviser. Look, I want to say freedom only for the members of the government or only for the members of the party is no freedom at all. We need to end the China virus lockdown, and only work sets you free. Let’s get everyone back to work, let’s get our economy growing again, let’s send Donald Trump and Mike Pence back to the White House for four more years.”
Uh, where have I heard that before? Oh, yeah …

I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. No, really. But I have a hard time believing Corey Lewandowski doesn’t know this reference. Sounds like he’s dog-whistling up a storm to me. And the fact that he flashed the slogan on the screen? Fishy.
Then again, who knows? I’ve been playing the “racist or stupid?” parlor game when it comes to these jackholes for four years now.
Hopefully, that’s about to end.
Pedal to the metal.
UPDATE: Looks like this might have been an expert troll job. Turns out alphafreedomfriends.com redirects to a Planned Parenthood fundraising page. And this video may have been requested through that weird celebrity Cameo site. (h/t to the redoubtable Jessica Sutherland.) That said, Lewandowski should have definitely understood the reference. Again, is he being racist or just stupid? Naturally, he can be both. Though of those two, I suspect he’s only proud of his racism.
