Corey Lewandowski raves that Trump is 'the greatest communicator as a president that we've ever had'

Hours after the covfefe heard 'round the world, President Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, took to Fox & Friends to boast that Trump is "the greatest communicator."

Lewandowski explained that "when you have a communications team, they have to have that relationship with the president, to understand how he communicates, because he is the greatest communicator as a president that we've ever had." While the implication that one must already understand how Trump communicates in order to see he's a great communicator may seem dubious, White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks also effused Tuesday that Trump "has an unparalleled ability to communicate with people."

The communications shakeup at the White House could see Lewandowski returning to the employ of his former boss. Trump is reportedly considering adding Lewandowski to the communications department; Trump had also considered adding his former deputy campaign manager, David Bossie, although Bossie has since expressed his wish not to join the White House. Press Secretary Sean Spicer's on-camera appearances are nevertheless expected to be rolled back and the Great Communicator will reportedly be holding more press conferences on his own. Jeva Lange
