The political adviser to Donald Trump who facilitated an interview between BuzzFeed and the game show host has lost his job.
Sam Nunberg, the adviser, was terminated by Trump because the resulting BuzzFeed piece wasn’t flattering enough, according to the New York Post. “I failed Mr. Trump, and that’s the long and short of it,” Nunberg told the Post.
Though the BuzzFeed story was chock full of details about Trump’s luxurious lifestyle, from his fabulous private jet, to his glamorous Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida, the billionaire characterized it as “inaccurate reporting” for being critical of his faux political ambitions.
On Twitter, Trump referred to the author of the BuzzFeed story, McKay Coppins, as “discredited.”
