Sam Nunberg insists media blitz wasn’t drunken meltdown: ‘I was trending number 1 on Twitter from a couch’

Published

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg on Wednesday insisted that his Monday media spree was not a drunken meltdown as some have speculated.

In fact, Nunberg told Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs that he was proud of the performance in which he announced that he would not comply with an order to testify before special counsel Robert Mueller’s grand jury. The former Trump aide has since reversed himself and said he will cooperate with the Mueller’s Russia investigation.

“I don’t feel exploited,” Nunberg revealed. “I was playing everywhere… I was trending No. 1 on Twitter from a couch in my office.”

Nunberg said that he had come up with a plan for how best to reverse the damage he caused himself on Monday. He said that he had reached out to friends and reporters to insist that there was a strategy behind the television spectacle, and that it not been caused by alcohol. Although he did not say whether or not he had been drinking when he went on the air.

“This is my personality,” he remarked.

Nunberg also backed away from claims that then-candidate Donald Trump may have colluded with Russians or broken other laws during the campaign. He insisted that the president “never did anything illegal or wrong around me.”

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK
