Trump, his family, his friends, his administration, his White House are morally bankrupt, low life's of the lowest phyllum.
'Womp, womp': Ex-Trump campaign manager Lewandowski mocks migrant girl with Down syndrome

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski cynically dismissed concerns about reports that a migrant girl with Down syndrome had been separated from her mother at the southwest U.S. border as a result of the White House's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy.
"Womp, womp," Lewandowski said to fellow panelist Zac Petkanas during an appearance on Fox News Tuesday night after Petkanas, a Democratic strategist, said he had read about a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome "who was taken from her mother and put in a cage."
"Did you say 'womp, womp' to a 10-year-old with Down syndrome being separated from her mother?" a shocked Petkanas asked. "How dare you."
"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," Lewandowski said. "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."
After the show, Petkansas said in a tweet that exchange with Lewandowski "was truly a surreal moment."
A 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome was detained and separated from her mother by US immigration officials last week in what Mexico's minister of foreign affairs called a "particularly painful" case of families being separated at the border.
The young girl, who crossed the border illegally with her brother and mother, was being held in a detention facility in McAllen, Texas, even though her father is a legal US resident, Mexico's Foreign Affairs Minister Luis Videgaray said at a press conference Tuesday.
"From conviction and by constitutional obligation, we cannot remain indifferent before an inhumane and cruel situation," Videgaray said.
Mexico's government issued a strong rebuke Tuesday of the Trump administration's decision to separate children from their parents at the border over its "zero tolerance" policy and asked for the policy to be rescinded, Videgaray said. Mexico has also requested officials from the UN Human Rights Council monitor the situation.
