Roger Stone to Donald Trump: You're Fired!
Drama is dogging Donald Trump’s campaign after news broke Saturday that one of the Republican presidential hopeful’s top advisers and closest friends had resigned from Trump’s staff.
Political consultant Roger Stone, who not only was serving as Trump’s top adviser but also has been his friend for 35 years, said Saturday afternoon he was calling it quits.
“I was proud to have played a role in the launch of your presidential campaign,” read Stone’s email.
“Your message of ‘Make America Great Again’ harkened back to the Reagan era. Restoring national pride and bringing jobs back to America — your initial and still underlying message — is a solid conservative message. In fact, it catapulted you instantly into a commanding lead in the race.”
The praise could only last so long before Stone admitted why he was abandoning Trumpworld.
“Unfortunately, the current controversies involving personalities and provocative media fights have reached such a high volume that it has distracted attention from your platform and overwhelmed your core message. With this current direction of the candidacy, I no longer can remain involved in your campaign.”
Stone told Sunshine State News Trump’s campaign was “imploding.”
Trump has been using Twitter to throw rhetorical bombs since Thursday night’s FOX presidential debate when he faced a series of tough questions and engaged in an aggressive exchange about women with moderator Megyn Kelly.
