Yesterday, we reported that sources had come forward to claim that South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) has been engaging in an extramarital affair with Corey Lewandowski, a longtime advisor to Donald Trump, for months.
Now, Noem is speaking out to deny the claims after Lewandowski was fired by Trump once again over the allegations.
“These rumors are total garbage and a disgusting lie,” Noem tweeted. “These old, tired attacks on conservative women are based on a falsehood that we can’t achieve anything without a man’s help. I love Bryon. I’m proud of the God-fearing family we’ve raised together. Now I’m getting back to work.”
Byron is Noem’s husband of nearly 30 years.

This came after sources came forward to reveal the alleged affair to the world.
“There are members of Congress close to Mar-a-Lago who have called the affair ‘an open secret’ and worried that about Noem’s viability as a national candidate and within the movement,” one source told American Greatness.
Pedro Gonzalez, the reporter who wrote the story exposing the alleged affair, fired back at Noem on Twitter.
“Hi Noem, please tag me next time. Which rumors? That you caved to Amazon, the chamber of commerce, and the NCAA on a transgender sports bill?” he wrote. “That you used your office to strong-arm and force a woman to retire to get your daughter a job? Or the allegations about Lewandowski?”

It was announced on Wednesday night that Lewandowski had been removed as head of a pro-Trump super Pac and “will no longer be associated with Trump World.”
“Pam Bondi, the very talented and honorable frmr AG of FL, has our complete faith and confidence in taking over MAGA Action. Corey Lewandowski will be going on to other endeavors, and we very much want to thank him for his service,” a Trump spokesman said in a statement obtained by Daily Mail.
Lewandowski’s firing also came after he was accused of inappropriately touching a woman at a charity event last weekend. Sources close to Trump had reportedly been urging him to ditch Lewandowski for quite some time.
“I said to the [former] president you could use some distance from Corey and that he’s embarrassing you,” one source told the Daily Beast. “He should have let go of Corey years ago, so I don’t know if he will now.”
Noem has shown herself to be a RINO time and time again, and Lewandowski is nothing more than an incompetent creep. Perhaps the two of them are perfect for each other after all, but Trump is better off without them.
