Donald Trump is, in the middle of a campaign for President, suing a former campaign aide because he is “furious” over the breach of his wall of secrecy.

The lawsuit is reportedly against Sam Nunberg for telling Page 6 why Hope Hicks and Corey Lewandowski were in a spat on the street one time. Yes, that is why.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is seeking $10 million in damages from a former senior campaign consultant, Sam Nunberg, alleging that Nunberg leaked confidential information to reporters in violation of a nondisclosure agreement.

In a court filing obtained by The Associated Press, Nunberg accused Trump of trying to silence him “in a misguided attempt to cover up media coverage of an apparent affair” between two senior campaign staffers.

The highly unusual legal dispute reflects Trump’s efforts to aggressively protect the secrecy of his campaign’s inner workings

Makes total sense, right?

So he’s throwing a temper tantrum and, as per his usual practice, taking his temper to court. That’s those small government values at work folks, saving the taxpayers money. Err, wait.

This, of course, does not in fact make sense.

Measured. Well thought out. Perfectly timed. These would be descriptions that do not apply here.
