Target: Turner Broadcasting System President David Levy
Goal: Fire the former manager of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign from his new CNN paid contributor position.
CNN has for some reason hired former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a paid contributor. Why a supposedly professional news agency would hire a man who used to work for one of the most racist, misogynistic, and ignorant campaigns in recent U.S. history is beyond comprehension, but regardless, he needs to be fired immediately.
Not only did Lewandowski used to work for Trump, he was fired from the campaign for allegedly assaulting a female reporter and later being caught on video assaulting a protester by violently grabbing the person’s collar. To make things even worse, it’s just been revealed that Lewandowski signed a non-disparagement agreement, meaning that he is legally not allowed to say anything bad about Donald Trump.
How is a man who is not allowed to criticize Trump supposed to be an impartial contributor? Moreover, what was CNN thinking hiring such a violent man who worked on a campaign based on hatred of Latino people, Muslims, and women? Corey Lewandowski should never be able to get decent paying work again. Sign our petition to demand that CNN immediately fires him.
Dear President David Levy,
Your recent decision to hire Corey Lewandowski, former manager for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has baffled many decent American citizens. This man worked for a campaign based on racism, Islamophobia, misogyny, and basically every form of disgusting, hateful bigotry you could imagine.
Not only that, but Lewandowski was actually fired from this campaign for being too violent. He was accused of yanking a reporter to the ground just for trying to talk to Trump, and there’s video footage showing him violently grabbing a protester by the collar. This is the man you’ve decided to pay money to be on television under your company’s name.
In addition to this, Lewandowski has apparently signed a non-disparagement agreement that continues even after he was fired. How is he supposed to be an impartial contributor to your network if he’s legally prohibited from saying anything critical about Donald Trump? He’s already been ducking questions about the candidate.
Corey Lewandowski is the last man you should have ever hired to be a CNN commentator. We demand that you immediately fire him and ensure that better hiring decisions are made in the future.
[Your Name Here]
