ICYMI: Donald Trump’s Team of Extremists And Losers

Donald Trump’s newest campaign advisor Corey Lewandowski joins extremists Karoline Leavitt and state Rep. Jon Stone as top Trump allies in the Granite State

While Donald Trump is nowhere to be found in New Hampshire and his Granite State campaign operation flounders, he is making clear with his newest campaign addition that his team couldn’t be more extreme. “Trump Creep” and New Hampshire Senate candidate wannabe Corey Lewandowski is the latest Trump ally that Granite Staters have already rejected, joining crash-and-burn House candidate Karoline Leavitt and disgraced state Rep. Jon Stone on the long list of failed politicos turned Trump advisors. 

Lewandowski's hiring is not only consistent with Donald Trump’s embrace of serial losers, but also his campaign’s disregard for sexual assault, embrace of political violence, and endorsement of attacks on law enforcement. Lewandowski, who faces battery charges and allegations of physical and sexual assault, is teaming up with top Trump ally Jon Stone, a favorite MAGA surrogate and Kelly Ayotte endorser who was removed from two local Claremont committees after reporting detailed how Stone allegedly “threatened to kill fellow police officers in a shooting spree, and murder his chief after raping the chief’s wife and children, all while he was already under scrutiny for his inappropriate relationship with a teen girl.”

“Donald Trump is so desperate for anyone willing to work for him that he is once again scraping the bottom of the MAGA barrel, adding Corey Lewandowski to a line-up that already includes crash-and-burn House candidate Karoline Leavitt and disgraced Rep. Jon Stone,” said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley. “Donald Trump’s team isn’t just full of failed candidates and disgraced elected officials, his extreme plans to ban abortion, cut Social Security, and gut the Affordable Health Care Act will make him the biggest loser once again in November.”

Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is back on the Trump political team payroll, making $20,000 from the Republican National Committee last month. [...]

He has served in and been forced out of other roles in Trump’s sprawling political operation, including being removed from a top post with a pro-Trump super PAC in 2021.

Lewandowski at the time was accused by a top Trump donor’s wife, Trashelle Odom, of making unwanted sexual advances towards her while at a Las Vegas charity dinner.

One of Donald Trump’s county campaign chairs in New Hampshire lost his job as a police officer after threatening to kill his colleagues in a shooting spree, murder the department chief and rape the chief’s wife in retaliation for his suspension over his relationship with a high school girl, according to a newly released report from an internal affairs investigation.

Jonathan Stone, who is currently a second-term state representative, was announced as Trump’s Sullivan County chair by his campaign on June 27, 2023. The coup-attempting former president first came to know Stone during Trump’s 2016 run, when Stone gave him an inscribed AR-15 assault rifle at a campaign stop. [...]

Stephen Stepanek, Trump’s New Hampshire campaign chair, said he knew nothing about Stone’s background until seeing news accounts.

“I just found out about it this morning,” Stepanek said Wednesday. “He’s been a Trump supporter for a long time, and he’s been a state representative, and he had, as far as we were concerned, what looked like a great background.”

Stepanek said Stone’s future with the campaign has not been determined.

“We haven’t made any decisions at this point,” he said, adding that he expected the campaign’s top aides at Trump’s South Florida country club would be taking the lead. “I think it will be handled by Mar-a-Lago, in consultation with me.”
