Since how long have Kristi Noem and Corey Lewandowski been having an affair?
Kristi, who Daily Mail claims believes in “family values,” has been probably involved with Corey Lewandowski since 2019, if not before.
It noted that the pair recently met on Friday when Lewandowski travelled with Trump to Rapid City, South Dakota, for a campaign rally.
However, they remained “careful” about holding any public interaction after they were aware of a pending relationship on their relationship. This had not been the case before.
In 2021, American Greatness, a far-right website claimed they were romantically involved. However, Kristi strongly rejected the story as a “total garbage and disgusting lie.”
These rumors are total garbage and a disgusting lie. 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
