VP Chance Gone? Rumors Are Swirling SD Governor Kristi Noem Had An Affair

Just a week after Republican Governor Kristi Noem endorsed Trump at a campaign event, rumors are swirling Noem has been in a long-lasting affair with Trump advisor Corey Lewandowski. …

The Daily Mail reported Noem who is married had an affair with Trump advisor Corey Lewandowski who is also married.

In the Daily Mail’s report, however, they did not reveal who their “source” was which raises speculation if the accusation was made up by the source in order to soil Noem’s chances of being Trump’s VP.

The Daily Mail asked Noem and Lewandowski for their response but did not reportedly receive a denial from either.

Here’s what the Daily Mail reported:

Married South Dakota governor Kristi Noem, 51 – who stresses her belief in ‘family values’ – and Trump advisor Corey Lewandowski, who is also married, began carrying on in 2019, if not before.

Now news of the relationship threatens to wreck Noem’s chances of joining Trump’s ticket in a potential rematch with President Joe Biden.

The liaison emerged one week after Noem, a 51-year-old mom-of-three, formally endorsed Trump, 77, for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, raising the pitch of speculation that the 45th president would pick her as his running mate.

“He’s 100% banging her,” said one person familiar with the relationship between Noem and Lewandowski, first reported by

The source added that they personally witnessed Noem “sitting on his [Lewandowski’s] lap” and “playing grab-ass” during an event at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in March 2020.
