Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Friday that this year’s upside-down Christmas tree fad is about as weird as Al Franken.
Appearing on ‘Fox & Friends,’ the onetime Washington power player was asked to weigh in on a flipped artificial fir retailing for more than $1,000 at Target stores.
‘It’s like “Seinfeld”,’ he said. ‘It’s like the bizarro world, like you can be a U.S. senator after groping people on a picture and no one has any accountability for it.’
‘That’s what the upside-down Christmas tree means to me. I mean, it is everything that is wrong.’
Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Friday that the ‘bizarro’ upside-down Christmas tree trend is as weird as a certain U.S. senator groping women without consequences to his career
Lewandowski’s jab was aimed at Al Franken, the Minnesota Democrat who refuses to resign despite allegations of improper touching from four women so far

Franken, a Democratic senator from Minnesota, is clinging to his job with his fingernails after four women accused him of inappropriately touching them – including one who has a photo to prove it.
The picture shows Franken groping then-model Leeann Tweeden’s breasts on a military aircraft following a USO tour of overseas bases in 2006.
The other latest accusers say Franken felt their rear ends during photo-ops during his political campaign events, and at the Minnesota State Fair after he took office.
Franken said Thursday in his latest quasi-apology that he has ‘met tens of thousands of people and taken thousands of photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations. I’m a warm person; I hug people.’
‘Some women have found my greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate, and I respect their feelings about that.’
The women said the events occurred in Minneapolis in 2007 and 2008. Last week Leann Tweeden (pictured), spoke out about a similar incident involving Franken that happened in 2006. Tweeden accused Franken of forcibly kissing her and putting his hands on her breasts

Franken insists that he doesn’t remember feeling anyone up, and that ‘it’s difficult to respond to anonymous accusers.’
The former comedian refuses to resign but says he will be ‘much more careful’ in the future.
‘I feel terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly and for that I am so sorry, and I want to make sure that never happens again,’ he said.
As Franken’s political world turns upside-down, Lewandowski said Friday that he’s sure the White House’s Christmas symbols will stay right-side-up.
‘I don’t even know what an upside-down Christmas tree means,’ he said.
‘I can be sure that the first family will not be turning the tree upside down. They love this country and our traditions.’
