Roger Stone loses it, begins attacking Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner

Wait…what? Just when you thought the calamitous Donald Trump White House and the Trump-Russia scandal couldn’t take any more cartoonish twists and turns, here comes another. Donald Trump’s longtime friend and former campaign adviser Roger Stone, who is reportedly being investigated by the FBI for colluding with Russia to hack the election, is now attacking Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Roger Stone has given a video interview to InfoWars, a far right propaganda site run by his gun-nut pal Alex Jones. In it Stone claims that Jared Kushner has been leaking dirty secrets to MSNBC host Morning Joe Scarborough, in an attempt at undermining White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Stone is not a reliable source of information (nor is InfoWars) and he’s presenting no evidence to support his claim, so the truth of the matter is not currently obtainable. But the bigger story is that Stone is now attacking Kushner of all people.

There are at least a few plausible explanations for Roger Stone’s latest odd move. One is that Donald Trump has cut off Stone, leaving him to fend for himself in the Russia scandal, and that Stone believes Kushner is the one who convinced Trump to hang him out to dry – so he wants revenge on Kushner. Another is that Stone simply believes Trump is giving too much power to Kushner in general, and is trying to manipulate his old friend Trump into reining Kushner in. Perhaps Bannon even pushed Stone into making the accusation, because Bannon wants to shift the power back from Kushner to himself. It’s also possible Stone has merely snapped under the pressure of FBI investigation.

But whatever the truth is about the leaks, and whatever Stone’s reason for losing it and publicly attacking his friend Trump’s son in law, it’s a sign of just how desperate and internally divisive things have become within the Trump camp.

    Well none of this bunch are creditable unless they bring a bag of tokens for proof!
    They seem to be feeding on each other for either self gain or more rabbit holes for people to follow!
    To me more smoke and mirrors, where’s the proof!

    This gets more and more like The Hunger Games with each passing day.

    This made me feel extremely hopeful- the chance of this bunch of disparate idiots actually staying loyal to a single whole philosophy is a bit of a stretch really, so with a bit of luck I really hope Bill’s suggestion is right – yeah it would be wonderful to see the whole thing implode ! Just what Trump deserves & a total relief to everyone. Problem is that if Trump feels cornered he WILL go to war to change the subject from his own problems ! I just found a minion which says –
    “don’t judge me just because I’m quiet, no one plans a murder out loud’ – does Trump realize just how many Americans fall into that category right now I wonder – his days are numbered one way or another !

    i think it important to always view ANYTHING the son in law does as coming from the daughter who has more power then all of them combined when it comes to her father.

    Stating Stone loses it implies that he ever “had it”. He didn’t. He’s just another nasty, crazy Trump associate.

    Consider, too, the black hole that is Trump’s foreign policy, especially with regard to SYRIA today, and perhaps this B.S. is one of many attempts to DISTRACT the public from looking straight at Trump with the SCORN he DESERVES.

    I am beginning to think they were right in 1776 to TAKE UP ARMS against the OPPRESSOR! Those minutemen did an outstanding job back then, I am beginning to think we all ought to GRAB our MUSKETS and STORM the CAPITOL and CAST the latter day oppressors OUT!

    The sickening part about this is that the cluster fuck known as the Trump administration is just getting warmed up.
