Megyn Kelly laced into CNN on her show Thursday night, ripping her competitor for hiring Donald Trump’s fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a paid contributor.

Lewandowski, Kelly continued before asking Kurtz for his opinion, “has had some very ugly language attributed to him when it comes to women and now he will be getting paid by Donald Trump one day and by CNN the next.”
“Well, this is no knock on Corey who I thought handled his firing with class. But for CNN to hire him 12 minutes after he was fired is to use, one of Trump’s famous words, sad,” Kurtz said. “It’s really sad.”
Lewandowski’s segments with CNN this week, the first immediately after his firing Monday with Dana Bash and the second Thursday night with Erin Burnett, “made clear” that the Trump delegate “doesn’t intend to utter a negative syllable of Donald Trump.”
