President Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski on Thursday defended his former boss's habit of eating fast food during last year's election, and said he wasn't worried about it because the candidate never ate the bread on his sandwiches.

CNN asked Lewandowski about Trump's standard dinner — two Big Macs, two Filet-o-Fish, and a chocolate milkshake from McDonalds.

"Were you concerned about him?" CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota asked.

"Well, he never ate the bread, which is the important part. So it was really, you know, a couple of fish sandwiches and a couple pieces of meat and a drink," Lewandowski said. Was I concerned? No. He was so busy campaigning, we didn't have time to sit down for a meal."
