'Trump's personal nightmare': Ex-campaign aide details why Cohen's hearing was deeply humiliating for the president

Sam Nunberg, one of President Donald Trump's former campaign staffers, explained Wednesday why Michael Cohen's congressional testimony was the "Trump's personal nightmare."


"He hated today even more than the shutdown," Nunberg said on MSNBC to host Chuck Todd. "They attacked his net worth, his business, his family, and how he operates."

"Nobody defended him, did they?" noted Todd of the president.

"Nobody did," said Nunberg. "All they could do is attack Michael Cohen's character. All they can do is say 'Michael, you lied.' And I don't think, Chuck, necessarily, as we were talking, his base has changed or anything. They're not any closer to impeachment or indictment. But with that said, this was a candidate who, as you know, didn't want to release his taxes, didn't want to release his grades, didn't want to have personal issues come out. And they all came out in one hearing."
