Former Vice President Mike Pence “lost it” after former President Donald Trump threw a crumpled newspaper article at him in frustration, according to a report. Administration officials recalled Trump taking umbrage when he found out Pence’s political committee hired Corey Lewandowski, a manager of the 45th president’s 2016 campaign for a time, according to the book. Mr. Trump was holding a newspaper article about the hiring and said it made him look weak, like his team was abandoning him as he was probed for his campaign’s role in Russian election meddling. He crumpled the article and threw it at his vice president,” the essay wrote. “‘So disloyal,’ Mr. Trump said.” “Mr. Pence lost it,” the essay continued, adding Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, was the one who asked Pence to hire Lewandowski, and he planned to discuss the matter with Trump over lunch. Mr. Pence picked up the article and threw it back at Mr. Trump,” Bender wrote. “He leaned toward the president and pointed a finger a few inches from his chest. ‘We walked you through every detail of this,’ Mr. Pence snarled. ‘We did this for you — as a favor. And this is how you respond?”
