Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was absolutely ruined on live TV when he tried to claim that the Muller report had found that "there was no collusion, no obstruction".

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota did not let his statement slide. When he tried to claim that it specifically made that determination, she interrupted him.

Time out, Corey. Did you read the report?

Obviously, he had to admit he hadn't but failed to comprehend that Camerota clearly had, of course, read it. Incredulously, he asks her a total of three times if she'd read the report.

You read the entire report?!

Camerota patiently explains that yes, of course, she read the report, and she had 10 examples of instances which have widely been deemed as obstruction of justice.

Despite 1,000 legal experts signing a letter to this effect, Lewandowski continues to deny the reality, accusing her instead of implying Attorney General William Barr was wrong in his assessment.

In fact, Barr wrote in March that he "did not draw a conclusion – one way or the other – as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction".

Regardless, Lewandowski did not come out well from the exchange and was widely derided for his performance.

Although some questioned why he had been booked on the show in the first place, given he said during his appearance before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that he had "no obligation" to be truthful to the media.

In fact, his five-hour appearance was so absurd it has become a meme in and of itself, with The Washington Post creating a compilation of his best moments, at super-fast speed for our viewing pleasure.
