Erin Burnett to ex-Trump aide: I can smell alcohol on your breath

CNN's Erin Burnett said Monday while interviewing former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg — at least his third appearance on the network just that day — that she could smell alcohol on his breath.

Nunberg appeared on CNN Monday night after a series of bizarre interviews, in which he said he would defy special counsel Robert Mueller's subpoena and said he thinks President TrumpDonald TrumpMark Walker to stay in North Carolina Senate race Judge lays out schedule for Eastman to speed up records processing for Jan. 6 panel Michael Avenatti cross-examines Stormy Daniels in his own fraud trial MORE "may have done something" illegal during the campaign.

"We talked earlier about what people in the White House were saying about you, whether you were drinking, or on drugs, or whatever had happened today," Burnett said during the interview. "Talking to you, I have smelled alcohol on your breath."

Nunberg denied the comment, saying, "Well, I have not had a drink."

"Anything else?" Burnett pressed.

"No. Besides my meds. Anti-depressants, is that OK?" Nunberg said. "They can say whatever they want, I don’t really care."

Nunberg, who was fired from Trump's campaign after racist social media posts surfaced, gave several interviews Monday, shocking many with his claims that he would not comply with Mueller's subpoena.
