On the June 19 episode of Fox News Channel’s “The Story with Martha MacCallum”, substitute host Sandra Smith had former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and Democratic Party strategist Zac Petkanas on for a segment about Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy, which at that time included separating children from adults when they cross the border illegally. Petkanas began with a story he read about a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who was separated from her mother. He neglected to mention that the mother was suspected of involvement with a child trafficking ring and was detained for that reason. Lewandowski responded by rolling his eyes and making his now-famous retort, “womp womp”, as in a sad-trombone effect that follows a failure of some kind. This caused Petkanas to completely lose his composure as he raised his voice,

“How dare you! How dare you! How absolutely dare you, sir! We have infants that are being taken from their mothers! We have infants that are being stolen from their mothers and put into cages! And you go ‘womp womp’?! This just exemplifies…how dare you, sir, how dare you! She has Down syndrome and she was taken from her mother. How dare you.”

Meanwhile, Lewandowski maintained composure and softly continued,

“What I said is you can pick anything you want to, but the bottom line is very clear: when you cross the border illegally you have given up the rights of that country. When you cross the border illegally, when you commit a crime, you are taken away from your family because that’s how this country works.”

Smith tried to keep them from talking over each other, to little avail. The next day, Lewandowski appeared with Smith again on FNC’s “America’s Newsroom” as well as on Chris Cuomo’s show on CNN to clarify his remarks, saying that “womp womp” was directed at Petkanas for politicizing children and not at the young child.

The great and good of the Cathedral brahmins reacted predictably. On June 20, Lewandowski was released by Leading Authorities Inc., a Washington, D.C. firm that helps political figures get speaking engagements. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow cried at the end of her show over the issue of child detainment centers. David Perry expressed dismay over the Trump administration’s “white nationalist agenda” in CNN’s opinion column. The harridans of ABC’s The View were outraged. NBC’s Megyn Kelly called Lewandowski a coward and said that he should be de-platformed.
