Twitter Implodes After Wild Sam Nunberg MSNBC Interview: ‘Mental Breakdown on Live Television’


Former Donald Trump aide Sam Nunberg called into Katy Tur’s MSNBC show on Monday for what turned out to be a wild interview on the Russia investigation, featuring a number of absolutely stunning quotes.

Over the course of the interview, Nunberg — an early adviser to Trump’s campaign who announced he would not be complying with a subpoena from Robert Mueller’s Russia probe to appear before a grand jury Friday — dropped a series of bombshell statements, including:

— “I think my lawyer’s gonna dump me right now.”
— “I’m not gonna go to jail”
— “I think it would be funny if they arrested me.”

As the interview stretched over segments, it seemed like everyone on Twitter was glued to the madness, with many speculating as to why Nunberg appeared to be losing his mind on national television. Unfortunately, Tur brought the wild ride to an end shortly after the 3 p.m. hour, tossing to a bewildered Kasie Hunt. (Nunberg subsequently called into CNN.)
