Corey Lewandowski Dumbfounds 'The View' with Unhinged Rant About 'Killer' Trump

Corey Lewandowski appeared on Tuesday's episode of The View to promote his new book, Let Trump Be Trump, co-authored with David Bossie.


The interview was uncomfortable as Lewandowski, who had been fired as campaign manager for Trump, fawned over the president.

He was tense and fidgety throughout the appearance. But a disturbing moment occurred when co-host Joy Behar interrupted Lewandowski's praise of Trump to confront him with a passage from his own book highlighting Trump's abusive behavior.

Lewandowski immediately started screaming at her.

“What I say is, he’s tough! He’s a killer! I want a killer as president!” he screamed.

"You do?" Behar responded calmly.

“Absolutely! I want to make sure that we are the toughest, greatest in the world and that we are safe,” Lewandowski continued to shout.
