President Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has been accused of “inappropriately touching” a woman at a recent holiday party held at the Trump International Hotel.

Joy Villa, the pro-Trump singer who made headlines when she wore a “Make America Great Again” dress to the Grammys earlier this year, has accused the disgraced strategist of “slapping her behind” while they were standing for a picture together.

After she complained to him and threatened to accuse him of sexual harassment, Lewandowski allegedly replied “Go ahead, I work in the private sector” and immediately did it again.

Villa’s account was confirmed by a witness to the incident, who has chosen to remain anonymous.

This is not the first time that the intolerably smug Lewandowski has found himself in trouble for inappropriately touching women; he was charged with light battery during the campaign for roughly grabbing Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields’ arm and shoving her when she tried to ask then-candidate Trump a question.

Naturally. Trump’s campaign refused to condemn either the literal objectification of Fields or the violence that Lewandowski used against her, instead choosing to blame her for her own assault.

Buzzfeed reports that he had been “accused of pushing a CNN reporter who tried to ask the candidate a question; physically confronting an aide for a rival campaign in a post-debate spin room; publicly shouting threats over the phone at a restaurant; making sexual comments about female journalists; and calling up women in the campaign press corps late at night to make unwanted romantic advances.”

Judging from this track record, it’s no wonder that Donald Trump and Corey Lewandowski got along so well – one serial sexual harasser to another.
