(Newser) – "I think my lawyer is going to dump me," former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg told MSNBC during a bizarre series of media interviews Monday in which he dared special counsel Robert Mueller to arrest him, said he despises President Trump, and called White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a "fat slob." When CNN's Erin Burnett told Nunberg she smelled alcohol on his breath and asked him if he had been drinking, he said: "My answer is no. I have not. No. Besides my meds. Anti-depressants. Is that okay?" More:

  • "Screw that." Nunberg, who was fired by the Trump campaign in 2015 over racist posts he made on Facebook, told CNN he would not comply with a subpoena in the Mueller investigation. "Screw that," he said. "Why do I have to go? Why? For what?" He told MSNBC that it would be "funny" if Mueller tried to arrest him.
