Donald Trump faces two new wars: the war against the coronavirus pandemic and a war against the American people. Now, POTUS has an old friend at his side after he commuted Roger Stone’s sentence. The friend with President Richard Nixon tattooed to his back appears to feels that he is untouchable by the law once he was freed.
Stone dubbed himself the “dirty trickster” beginning in the 1980s. That meant he has been lurking around Republican politics for over 50 years, according to The Business Insider. Trump fired him, but as is common, the president let him back inside of his friendship circle. Stone was initially fired for “hogging the media spotlight,” which is a fatal error until it is not. Trump wants all of the attention.
After Stone was released from his prison sentence, he appeared to speak freely with his prejudices. Black Host of Los Angeles CA The Mo’Kelly Show Mo (Morris) Kelly radio show asked Stone:
‘There are thousands of people treated unfairly daily, how your number just happened to come up in the lottery, I am guessing it was more than just luck, Roger, right?’
Stone responded over his phone to either someone else near to him or to himself:
‘[A]rguing with this Negro.’
Trump’s friend used a slur that became offensive in the 1960s. O’Kelly asked him to say that again. Stone let out a great sigh then paused with dead air for nearly 40 seconds. Then, the Dirty Trickster said:
‘I did not, you’re out of your mind.’
O’Kelly called Stone out over his comment:
‘[I am] disappointed and dismayed that in 2020, that’s where we are.’
As Trump’s niece Mary Trump said in recent interviews after her book hit the market, her uncle frequently used racial slurs.
Stone was sentenced to a 40-month term for his seven felony crimes of obstructing a congressional investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign. Special Counsel Robert Mueller III was investigating Russian links to the Trump campaign.
Liberal media watchdog Media Matters for America noted:
‘Mr. Stone has been accused of using this kind of language in the past, according to Media Matters for America, a liberal-leaning media watchdog, which noted in 2016 that Mr. Stone had scrubbed his Twitter account of inappropriate posts.’
The rest of the radio interview was awkward at best. O’Kelly explained that talking to Stone was his job:
‘[My job is] to keep him talking for your benefit, as the audience, and my benefit to have that conversation.’
Later O’Kelly added:
‘The only thing that I felt was true, honest and sincere that Roger Stone said was in that moment that he thought I was not listening. All of my professional accolades, all my professional bona fides went out the window because as far as he was concerned, he was talking and arguing with “a Negro.”’
‘[It was] clear, it was discernible, and it was unmistakable.’
Stone has appeared on the radio show before. Certainly, O’Kelly’s goal was not to “provoke or goad the president’s friend.” The show’s host said:
‘[I am] disappointed and dismayed that in 2020, that’s where we are. It’s the diet version of the N-word, but as an African-America man, it’s something I deal with pretty frequently. If there’s a takeaway from the conversation, it is that Roger Stone gave an unvarnished look into what is in the heart of many Americans today.’
In a nutshell, this is what happened to Stone:
- ‘President Donald Trump officially commuted the prison sentence of Roger Stone on Friday, July 10.
- A federal judge sentenced Stone, a longtime ally of President Donald Trump, to 40 months in prison after a jury convicted Stone of making false statements, witness tampering, and obstruction in November.
- Federal prosecutors said Stone attempted to undermine the investigation in order to protect Trump. Stone was found guilty of all seven charges brought against him.
- In January 2019, Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted him with one count of obstruction, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering.’
It appears that all Americans of all colors must handle this pandemic on their own, because nothing is going to happen at the White House and most of the Senate.
It appeared that Trump was losing both of his wars against the virus and Americans. The Director of the National Institutes of Health Dr. Francis Collins, who is technically Dr. Anthony Fauci’s boss, appeared on NBC’s Face the Nation with Chuck Todd Sunday. Dr. Collins said that Americans would have to manage the virus. It seemed that there was not going to be any help from the strange characters such as Trump and Stone hunched at the top of the nation:
‘American individuals… capable of figuring out what to do. Wear a mask protecting other people from you. Do that social distancing thing and washing hands.’
Collins continued with his take on the coronavirus:
‘It is bizarre that we turned mask-wearing a political issue…[It] seems to people’s political parties…the enemy is the virus…[The Answer is people get together [on one track] and do the right thing.’

‘Wait… Did Roger Stone just say “I don’t feel like arguing with this negro…”? Man…2020 is the wildest! ‘
