A former Trump campaign aide said he would defy a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller, unloaded on President Donald Trump and his campaign, then later said he would probably end up cooperating with Mueller, in a series of stunning interviews Monday.
Before wrapping up his unhinged statements at one of his interviews, CNN host Erin Burnett asked Nunberg whether he had been drinking because she could smell alcohol on his breath.
"Do you think I would ever talk to that moron?"
UPDATE: March 5, 2018, 3:16 p.m. PST Nunberg later appeared on NY1 where he called Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a "joke" and "fat slob".
"No. Besides my meds".
Nunberg struck a dramatically different tone Tuesday than he did over the course of several TV interviews a day earlier. Nunberg asked NBC News reporter Katy Tur on Monday afternoon after he received a subpoena.
"You can't think of anything more intelligent to say?"
The White House did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
"He's too smart for that, he didn't want it", said Nunberg of the president. "I believe that Carter Page was colluding with the Russians", Nunberg said on CNN.

However, Christopher Robin isn't an actual remake, so it may not be expected to do quite as much business as something like Beauty and the Beast .
Added Trump knew about the Trump Jr meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower and "I don't know why he went around trying to hide it".
Despite calling Trump an "idiot", Nunberg insisted to The Washington Post that he won the election without the help of the Russians because he "campaigned his ass off" and that there's "no one who hates him more than me".
At the White House, officials quickly sought to distance the administration from Nunberg, who has not been in Trump's good graces since his firing in August 2015 over racially insensitive Facebook posts.
"I'm not interested in going in there, and for them to set up a case against Roger Stone, who had no communication with Julian Assange", Nunberg said. And his investigators are reportedly scrutinizing the Trump Organization's efforts to secure the deal, among other business dealings before the election.
Asked where he might move if he had to live in another country, Nunberg replied, "Easy question - the Jewish State of Israel".
"I really could care less what the Trump White House has to say about me.they're doing a awful job for him".
Mueller is the special counsel leading the probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to sway the election in his favour.
Nunberg said: "Roger is my mentor". He denied having anything to drink and repeated he "didn't care" what the reports said. "But that's irrelevant. The person she works for has a 30 percent approval rating". Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort filed a lawsuit in January challenging Mueller's authority to indict him.
