Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg made numerous appearances today on the major news networks in an increasingly unraveled performance that flirted on the edge of being an outright meltdown.
He said he plans to ignore Robert Mueller’s subpoena which demands he hand over emails and documents as part of the probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Max Tani of The Daily Beast reports that Nunberg has already missed a deadline today.

The sheer bold defiance that Nunberg is displaying gives the entire spectacle an almost surreal feel. Surely, no competent lawyer could have advised such reckless behavior. Nunberg is digging a deep hole for himself and setting himself up to be ruthlessly prosecuted by the special counsel.
At one point earlier today, he even said that he believes that Trump may have done something during the election that could take down his presidency.

Nunberg later appeared on Spectrum News and attacked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, calling her a “joke” and “unattractive” and a “fat slob.”
It’s hardly surprising that someone who used to associate with a sexual predator like Donald Trump would gleefully engage in such blatantly misogynistic rhetoric, and the behavior should be condemned.
There are countless reasons to criticize Huckabee Sanders and her efforts to prop up a corrupt and criminally incompetent administration without target her physical appearance. History will reflect poorly on her, but because of the terrible person she is not because of anything to do with her physical appearance.
Meltdown complete. Here's Nunberg calling White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a "joke" and a "fat slob." Jesus. pic.twitter.com/BhVhGWvgqo
