Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump's former campaign manager, has a mission in his new job as a political analyst for CNN — to put on a positive spin on his former boss, columnist Lucia Graves writes in The Guardian newspaper.

"Whomever Lewandowski's new contract insults — women, journalists, CNN viewers, to name a few — one thing is clear: it could hardly have worked out better, not just for Lewandowski, but for his old boss too," Graves says in her column .

"Trump hasn't been able to count on favorable coverage from CNN, in contrast to rightwing outlets such as Breitbart. With Lewandowski on the air now, suddenly, he can."

Lewandowski was hired by CNN just days after getting the boot from the Trump campaign where he had stirred up trouble by allegedly roughhousing a reporter, mistreating the press and making questionable comments to women.

Graves compares Lewandowski's ouster from the campaign to the history of veteran Republican strategist Roger Stone, who advised Trump until his departure last August.

"[Stone] has gone on to be a supremely valuable ally for Trump from the outside ... Like Lewandowski, his leaving could hardly have worked out better for Trump," she says.
