Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg fired back at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday during one of his multiple explosive interviews, saying she needs to “shut her fat mouth.”
Speaking to CNN’s Erin Burnett, Nunberg responded to Sanders’ comments during Monday’s press briefing. “I know you may not like the way I say it — she should shut her fat mouth,” Nunberg said. “I don’t like that at all; I find that completely irrelevant,” Burnett responded.
“I definitely think he doesn’t know that for sure because he’s incorrect,” Sanders said when asked about Nunberg’s claim that he believes the president “may have done something during the election.”
“As we’ve said many times before there was no collusion with the Trump campaign. Anything further on what his actions are? He hasn’t worked at the White House so I certainly can’t speak to him or the lack of knowledge he clearly has,” Sanders added.
“She says I’m bizarre? I’m bizarre? It’s pretty bizarre what her father does,” Nunberg said, referring to former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee.
Burnett then corrected Nunberg, saying Sanders never used the word “bizarre” to describe him during his recent string of interviews. “No, but she had her people do it on background,” he said.
“But what does her appearance have to do with it? I just want to be direct,” Burnett asked.
“Oh, no I didn’t mean that. No. I meant that she should shut mouth about talking about me. That’s what I meant. Not about her appearance,” Nunberg said.
