Longtime Donald Trump adviser and ally Roger Stone has apparently been scrubbing his Twitter account of many of his sexist and racist tweets attacking media personalities.
Stone deleted tweets in which he wrote that commentator Roland Martin is a "stupid negro" and a "fat negro," Allen West is an "arrogant know-it-all negro," New York Times columnist Gail Collins is an "elitist c*nt," NBC's Tom Brokaw is "senile," and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is "Rachel the muff-diver." He also deleted tweets in which he tweeted "DIE BITCH" at former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, wondered "Which female Politico Reporter goes commando regularly," and offered a cash reward to anyone who "punches out" MSNBC host Chris Matthews.
Stone, who still regularly appears on Fox News and Fox Business, also today deleted many of his tweets targeting Fox News personalities following news of his MSNBC ban. Stone mocked contributor Charles Krauthammer -- who was paralyzed in a diving accident when he was in medical school -- by telling him to "stand the fuck up," suggested he wants "to bash Bill O'Reilly's head in," called contributor Herman Cain "Mandingo," and said anchor Megyn Kelly has a "nice set of cans."
Stone is a notorious "dirty trickster" who co-authored The Clintons' War on Women. The 2015 book is dedicated to -- and cites research from -- a Holocaust denier who blames a "Jewish plot" for the 9/11 attacks. Stone's history includes forming an anti-Hillary Clinton group named "C.U.N.T." during the 2008 election.
He is now heading a pro-Trump super PAC. Stone recently said his group is "going to have protests" and "demonstrations" at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. "We will disclose the hotels and the room numbers of those delegates who are directly involved" in supposedly stealing the race, he said.
