I would have never taken a job with CNN as former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski did. CNN is not the place for conservatives/Republicans at this time. It seems the network hired these individuals to them up like a circus whack-a-mole game.

From The Hill:
Corey Lewandowski resigned from CNN Friday afternoon, and is rumored to have accepted a position with Donald Trump’s administration.
A CNN spokeswoman said the resignation was immediate.
Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, was fired in June but has remained an outspoken supporter of Trump and kept close to his campaign. A report on Thursday by The New York Times said he was being considered to serve as Trump’s chief of staff.
Since winning the presidential election Tuesday night, Trump has been busy meeting with with politicians, lobbyists and members of his campaign staff preparing for his transition into the presidency. According to reports, Lewandowski was seen entering Trump Tower Friday before resigning.
Trump is said to be considering several others for the position of chief of staff, including campaign chief Steve bannon, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and deputy campaign manager David Bossie.
Other members of his transition team include: Ben Carson, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Rudy Giuliani and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions.

At least one thing can be said, Lewandowski didn’t embarrass the Trump campaign and give answers to debate questions. He went over there, did his job against an onslaught of media hacks and rolled out like a boss.
