Billionaire Donald Trump's top campaign advisor (and friend for 35 years) Roger Stone or Stone quit, as Trump's misogynist attack on Megyn Kelly continues to reverberate.
Fox News moderators in the debate were tough on the candidates. On CNN, Trump said of Kelly: "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,"
That statement has consequences.
From Sunshine State News:
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.
Stone wrote: "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 dared to talk about ending illegal immigration, which was great.
But he is daft. Rich and daft. Voting for him is irresponsible.
