Corey Lewandowski is a very, very close friend of Donald Trump. He was his campaign manager for a year and a half, is a political commentator for Fox News, and was a lobbyist until May of this year when it was revealed he never officially registered as a lobbyist.
So it should come as no surprise that he had a gushingly pro-Trump chat on Friday night’s Hannity on Fox News. Host Kimberly Guilfoyle and the Washington Times’ Charlie Hurt talked with Lewandowski about Trump’s Twitter feud with MSNBC’s Morning Joe show hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
At one point, Lewandowski made the outrageous statement that Donald Trump is the “Ernest Hemingway of Twitter.” This prompted Twitter users to imagine how Hemingway would have written about Trump, and questioned if the commander in chief even knew who the late Nobel Prize-winning writer of The Old Man and the Sea was.
If by Hemingway he means “it’s all fiction”, then yes. If he means “articulate” then no.

He is, however, the Ernest Goes to Camp of Twitter.

Lewandowski is the Gomer Pyle of literary criticism

I feel like the phrase: “the Ernest Hemingway of Twitter” is an oxymoron. Heavy on the moron.

Hemingway volunteered to fight in WWI and was severely wounded. Any comparison to Trump is a slander.
