Sam Nunberg Apologizes For Vicious Attacks on Sarah Sanders: ‘I Was Having a Rough Day’

Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg is apologizing for his extremely personal attacks against Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the last few days.

During his wild Monday media campaign, Nunberg took several major shots at the White House press secretary, calling her a “fat slob” who is “unattractive” and needs to “shut her mouth.” Nunberg insisted he wasn’t making a comment about Sanders’ “terrible appearance” at the time, but he seems to be changing his tune, as evidenced by these remarks picked up by The Daily Caller:

“It was wrong of me to attack Sarah. Sarah’s very talented. It was a rude comment. I understand she was just doing her job, and I think she does a very good job under rough circumstances. I owe her an apology. I was having a rough day.”

Nunberg also confirmed to the DC that he will comply with Robert Mueller‘s probe, a reversal of his promise from two days ago to defy a subpoena to go before a federal grand jury. Nunberg was suspected of being drunk or on drugs during his high-profile meltdown, and he has told reporters that he will seek treatment after Friday’s meeting with the Russia special counsel.
