Donald Trump is so unbelievably thin skinned that it’s amazing he has survived for so long. I am beginning to wonder if that orange stuff is a protective coating.
Once again Trump is reacting with rage to criticism of his campaign. RawStory is reporting that the candidate is so upset with his former campaign aide, Sam Nunberg, that he is suing the man for $10 million.
Sam Nunberg was fired from the Trump campaign last year after posting racist comments on Facebook. Oddly enough, that wasn’t the first time that he had been fired by Trump.
Back in 2012, Nunberg worked for Trump’s fledgling presidential campaign. He arranged an interview between the candidate and Buzzfeed and it ended up being intensely critical. Trump fired Nunberg.
Then he rehired him for the 2016 campaign and fired him again.
Now he’s suing the man.
Supposedly, all members of Trump’s staff are required to sign a non-disclosure document promising that they will not talk about the candidate or reveal any information about him or the campaign. Ever.
Trump says Nunberg violated that agreement.
It seems that Nunberg earned the ire of the Donald by talking about an alleged affair between former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and spokesperson Hope Hicks.
When the news of Trump's lawsuit broke, Sam Nunberg texted: "I am not guilty. I am beautiful." https://t.co/iFAgr4DslV

This is all confusing and difficult to work out, but the ick factor cannot be ignored. What we know for sure is that Nunberg has expressed a very strong dislike for Lewandowski. We know that Nunberg was fired because of the ugly Facebook posts and we know that Donald Trump is suing him.
It’s hardly a typical event to have a presidential nominee file a major lawsuit in the very heart of a national campaign. However, this is Donald Trump. Nothing he does is typical.
Nothing he does takes precedence over protecting his own ego either. Nothing. Not even in the week before he hopes to earn the Republican Party nomination.
I honestly can’t wait to see what Nunberg will reveal as things unfold.
