On the day Donald Trump’s recently fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski announced he would be joining CNN as a political commentator, his former boss had harsh words for the network on Twitter.


In a later tweet, the real estate mogul called the cable channel the “Clinton News Network,” linking to another Breitbart article that accused CNN of erroneously deeming a Trump talking point false.


Despite his new national platform, Lewandowski may not be able to fire back at his former boss’ slams. Many of Trump’s employees, Lewandowski included, sign strict nondisclosure agreements that keep them from releasing any confidential or disparaging information about the real estate tycoon.
