Sam Nunberg once gave Trump a crash course on the Constitution — and things didn’t go well

Published

Sam Nunberg gained instant infamy Monday with a series of bizarre and possibly alcohol-fueled TV interviews challenging the special counsel probe, but he has previously made news for the wrong reasons.

The former campaign adviser was reportedly tasked with explaining the Constitution to Donald Trump shortly after he announced his run for president, and Nunberg told “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff the experience didn’t go well.

“I got as far as the Fourth Amendment,” Nunberg told Wolff, “before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head.”

Nunberg and his mentor, Republican dirty trickster Roger Stone, helped prepare Trump for his first Republican primary debate.

“I wasn’t there to teach the president the Constitution,” Nunberg said. “The president had a granular understanding of the Constitution, it was good enough. It was around eight days before the first debate and I didn’t want him to have any gotcha questions.”

Nunberg also admitted he “probably” called the president an “idiot” during a conversation with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, according to Wolff’s reporting.

“‘If you can get this idiot elected twice,’ Nunberg marveled, you would achieve something like immortality in politics,” Wolff reported.

Nunberg tried to clarify that he was only being sarcastic and did not actually believe Trump is an idiot.

“I’m from New York and I’m very sarcastic,” Nunberg said. “I certainly probably said that but he’s by no means an idiot, at all.”

“I’m sure he’s used very colorful words about me in the past,” he added.

Trump fired Nunberg twice, for the last time in August 2015, and he reportedly left the campaign aide at McDonalds because his custom burger order was taking to long.

“Leave him, let’s go,” Trump said, according to former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and deputy campaign manager David Bossie.

The older man was walking with a woman when they encountered a group of younger women over the weekend at the Kentucky city's Norton Commons amphitheater, and a video of the encounter shows him approaching the group, reported WDRB-TV.

“We are leaving," one of the younger women tells the doctor. "Please let’s not cuss at each other.”

Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money

Published

Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump. He doesn't care about you or the country. He only cares about exploiting this crisis to bail out his business and to get himself re-elected, thereby shielding himself from a series of indictments that surely await him if he loses. The sooner we embrace this easily-observable fact about Trump, the better equipped we'll be to evaluate his decisions during these overlapping health and financial calamities.

The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.

New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work

Published

The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.

Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.

"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
