Sam Nunberg, a former aide on Trump’s campaign in 2016 who made a name for himself through his combative TV appearances has joined another campaign to elect Kadri Veseli as PM of Kosovo.
Nunberg is working as an adviser to Kadri Veseli, the Democratic Party of Kosovo’s candidate for PM in the Oct. 6 elex. He’ll “provide public affairs & comms strategy services including strategic advice, public relations & government outreach,” #DirtyTrix
📌This according to a copy of the contract filed with the Justice Department. The contract, which was signed last week, is worth $110,000.

🔑That’s our hard earned tax dollars at work to pay for #DirtyTricks to affect the outcome of Kosovo’s election.
Who is Nunberg?

What drew Nunberg to politics, and to Trump, was Roy Cohn.

The actual Cohn was a knife fighter of the legal world, a mentor to the young Trump who inspired the mogul’s punch-back-harder, never-back-down political style.
Referencing Pacino’s line about Ethel Rosenberg in ‘Angels in America’:

“Was it legal? F*ck legal,” Nunberg says, jabbing his finger in the air and slowing down for a second in his best Pacino impression.

“Am I a nice man? F*ck nice!”
Nunberg continues:

“You want to be nice or you want to be effective?”

“You want to make the law, or be subject to it?”


Get the picture? #Mob
Nunberg resumes:

“Now, is that good, is that bad, I don’t know, whatever,” he says. “To me that just showed hard grit, tough, you can tell Roy Cohn, .., tough guy, fighter, doesn’t f*ck around, was trying to work the system for himself.”
“I like to say I am only bad to three people in my life,” Nunberg says. “People that are disloyal to me, people that hurt my friends. Well, OK, four people.
“People that are disloyal to me, people that hurt my friends, people that hurt my clients, people that my clients hire me to hurt, and myself occasionally, unfortunately.”

Clients people hire me to hurt...#Mob
Sam Nunberg first crossed paths with Donald Trump on April 2, 1989.

It was WrestleMania V. Nunberg’s father is an attorney, and worked with Gerald Schrager, Trump’s longtime real estate attorney and adviser.
When the 2008 campaign rolled around, even though his father had done legal work for members of the Rudy Giuliani administration when they left City Hall, Nunberg volunteered for his rival in the Republican primary, Mitt Romney.
In Iowa, he met Jay Sekulow.

Sekulow hired him for the group’s fledgling NY operation.

In 2010, Sharif El-Gamal attempted to build an Islamic community center in lower Manhattan, Nunberg got his first chance to kick up a dirt storm on the political scene
The issue was the “Ground Zero Mosque,” a building that was neither at Ground Zero nor a mosque.

Anti-Islamic firebrands seized on the issue, & tried to whip up public anger at the idea of an Islamic anything near the site of WTC attacks.
There was a Republican primary for governor going on in New York, and Nunberg decided to see who’d be willing to take it on as a campaign issue
He took the Anti-Islamic issue to Carl Paladino, a Buffalo developer, then running a long-shot campaign, and someone who had promised to take a baseball bat to Albany’s entrenched political class. He won.
Paladino, a notorious troll, made sickening comments about Barack and Michelle Obama. They are in one sense typical of the Republicans’ contempt for the outgoing president & his wife, whom they have savaged in grossly racist terms for eight years.
Paladino also revealed his peculiar interest in sex with animals before ArtVoice; he is notorious for emailing hardcore pornographic videos, including depictions of bestiality, to members of his email list. 😱
And Paladino, was the co-chair of Trump’s presidential campaign in NY state, and a member of the Buffalo public schools board. 😱

Trump hires only the ‘best people’

I digress, but you the reader understand the type of people Trump associates with. #Mob
Nunberg says his favorite book is ‘Trust Me, I Am Lying’ by former American Apparel media stuntman Ryan Holiday

The person who really connected Nunberg with Trump is the man who he cites as his mentor: Roger Stone
I think the reader likely agrees with me in believing Nunberg is up to no good in Kosovo.

He has slipped into Stone’s shoes, & assumed the mantle as Trump’s new political dirty trickster, now that Stone has been arrested & is awaiting his legal fate.
