(Trump never posed the threat of fascism. The real threat was idiocracy.)

--Nunberg was fired in February 2014 by Trump even after offering his resignation. Nunberg convinced Trump to participate in a BuzzFeed article that ended up being highly critical of a potential campaign by the real estate mogul.

--Nunberg was rehired by Trump as a communications adviser in February 2015, according to The Washington Post.

--Then he was fired again -- this time from the campaign -- in August 2015. The firing came after Business Insider reported Nunberg had a history of racially charged and disparaging political posts dating back to 2007 on Facebook. He wrote this, with three dashes, about an upcoming meeting with the Rev. Al Sharpton: "his daughter is N---!" And he called President Barack Obama a "Socialist Marxist Islamo Fascist Nazi Appeaser." Nunberg denied to CNN at the time that he had written the posts and said "anything that was posted under my name does not mean I posted it." However, he apologized in a 2017 MSNBC interview. At the time of his second firing, a campaign spokesperson described him as a "low-level" staffer.

--A few months later, in March 2016, Nunberg endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas in the Republican primary. He said Trump "does not have a coherent political ideology," according to Politico.

--In December 2016, Hope Hicks shared strong words on Nunberg with Politico. "He's a highly self-destructive individual who makes routine calls begging for his job back," Hicks said to Politico. Her statement was in response to a Nunberg interview where he said he didn't think Trump would win the election.

--In July 2016, Trump sued Nunberg for $10 million, alleging Nunberg breached a confidentiality agreement. At the time, Nunberg's lawyer told CNN that Nunberg was being accused of "violating certain confidentiality provisions by talking about Donald Trump after he was no longer associated with the campaign." Nunberg "amicably" settled the $10 million lawsuit with Trump in August 2016, CNN reported.
