Trump’s bestie Roger Stone is going above and beyond in his effort to be scummy on behalf of The Donald. Stone is the Trump ally who probably planted the fake Ted Cruz sex scandal story in the National Enquirer. He’s also a big piece of crap. And lately, he’s been making threats. Today he took it to a whole new level.
Speaking with Stefan Molyneux Monday, Stone promised to disclose the hotel room numbers of delegates who are insufficiently loyal to Dear Leader, in order that angry Trump die-hards can go to their rooms and challenge them. Which will definitely be totally peaceful and fine. You should note that Freedomain Radio, which is where the interview is from, is pro-Trump, not a liberal site.
If Trump does not run the table on the rest of the primaries and the caucuses, we’re looking at a very, very narrow path in which the kingmakers go all out to cheat, to steal, and to snatch this nomination from the candidate who is overwhelmingly selected by the voters, which is why I have urged Trump supporters: come to Cleveland. March on Cleveland. Join us in the Forest City. We’re going to have protests, demonstrations. We will disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved in the steal. If you’re from Pennsylvania, we’ll tell you who the culprits are. We urge you to visit their hotel and find them. You have a right to discuss this if you voted in the Pennsylvania primary, for example, and your votes are being disallowed.
Stone is openly attempting to intimidate delegates. Stick with Trump, or else. Imagine being assigned as a Trump delegate. Imagine you intend to vote for someone else on the second ballot. Imagine the promise from the Trump campaign that they will send goons to your room. Get the picture? Intimidation. A literal threat.
These threats from the Trump camp regarding the convention are increasing in their frequency and scope, and show two things. First, that They are getting desperate because they see the writing on the wall. His campaign failed to understand the process because he is incurious and dumb and so are those who work for him. And now they realize they can lose the whole thing. That’s the first thing it tells you.
The second thing it shows is, not only do Trump and his surrogates give zero craps about rules, order, even basic respect for our political process, but they are 100% certain that their loyal followers don’t care either. They are not only anticipating rioting if Trump loses fair and square, they are not only promising it, they are actively soliciting it.
Stone, like Trump, has no problem using actual threats of retribution against his enemies. Trump is a tin-pot amateur dictator with designs on going pro. And it seems his army of hooligans are just fine with that. Until and unless Donald Trump personally objects to these statements being made on his behalf, he is willingly endorsing them, and should be treated as someone willfully inciting violence. You know, a dirtbag. Just like Roger Stone.
