'Perverse and Twilight Zone-ish': Former adviser explains how Trump became the swamp he said he was against

Former advisor to President Donald Trump's successful 2016 run for office, Sam Nunberg, blasted the White House in an interview with The Atlantic.


“It’s Washington as usual!” Nunberg complained. “It’s a little perverse and Twilight Zone-ish.”

This is not the first time Nunberg has had harsh words for the candidate whose campaign he helped launch.

“I probably did call him an idiot,” Nunberg told Joy Reid in early January.

“Joy, he’s a complete pain in the ass to work for,” the former aide said. “Joy, he’s terrible to work for.”

It should be mentioned, many internet commentators believed Nunberg may have been intoxicated during that interview.

In 2016, Donald Trump's campaign sued Nunberg for $10 million, claiming he was the source of a New York Post gossip item about an affair between then Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and longtime aide Hope Hicks.

Nunberg was mentioned in the 2017 book "Let Trump Be Trump" by top former campaign aides Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie. When Nunberg ordered a special-order meal at a McDonald's, Trump got tired of waiting, and they left without him.

In a 2016 GQ article, Nunberg had the following to say about Lewandowski: “I literally will suck the f*cking blood out of his skull by the time I’m done with him.”
