Joy Villa Files Sexual Assault Charges Against Former Trump Campaign mMnager

As Scooby Doo would say, Ruh-Roy Raggy! President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is being sued by pro-Trump singer Joy Villa.

Villa, who is popular for wearing a “Make America Great Again” dress to the Grammys, claims that Lewandowski slapped her “on the butt hard, twice — even after she voiced an objection.”

According to Villa, the incident took place during a photo op at the Trump International Hotel in Washington in late November during a holiday party celebrating President Donald Trump’s first year in office.

“I’m wearing this silver suit and stretchy pants, and after the photo, he smacks my ass really hard,” she said,  “It was completely demeaning and shocking.”

Villa said that when she told him to “watch it” and that she could report him for sexual harassment, he arrogantly responded “Go ahead, I work in the private sector,” according to Villa, and “then he smacks my ass again.”

The singer told Politico that she initially told authorities she wanted to file a sexual harassment claim, but “the detective I talked to said that sexual harassment is what happens in the workforce” and that “what you describe happened to you is sexual assault.”

Lewandowski has yet to comment on the incident and did not respond to multiple calls, emails, and texts requesting a comment following the report.

Villa mentioned in October that she may be running for Congress in the near future. She said, “I’m looking everywhere from Jacksonville all the way down to Miami.”

“We need to put new people in, we need to vote fresh blood in, and we really need to make America great again with people who are going to work for the aims of the president, not lobbyists, not Washington elitists,” Villa added, “I know Hollywood’s not going to like me. They already don’t like me. That’s fine.”
