Trump Ally Roger Stone Attacks “Talentless Buffoon” Ed Rollins For Signing With “Fraud” Pro-Trump Group

Roger Stone is attacking fellow Donald Trump super PAC strategist Ed Rollins as a “talentless buffoon” who is working for a group that is a “fraud” and "scam." Rollins, who also works as a Fox News contributor, previously attacked Stone as “a little rat” whom nobody in politics trusts.

Rollins is a longtime political consultant who worked for Ronald Reagan, Ross Perot, and Michele Bachmann. He recently signed on as a strategist for Great America PAC, a pro-Trump political action committee that aims to “grow the burgeoning Movement behind Donald Trump and merge the grassroots with the business community.”

Stone is a longtime adviser and friend to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. He speaks frequently with Trump, worked as a paid adviser to his campaign last year, and helped place operative Paul Manafort in a top campaign position. Stone heads the super PAC Committee to Restore America's Greatness and the related 527 group Stop The Steal. Stone has a history of spouting violent, sexist, and racist rhetoric against politicians and media figures, including calling for the killings of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

Stone and Rollins have been feuding for years. Rollins told The New Yorker in 2008 that “Roger was a fringe player around town. He always had this reputation of being a guy who exaggerated things, who pretended he did things. Roger was never on Nixon’s staff, was never on the White House staff. I don’t think you’ll find anyone in the business who trusts him. Roger was always a little rat.”

Stone appeared on the May 4 edition of The Alex Jones Show and said he needed to alert Trump supporters that Great America PAC is a "scam" and "fraud." He then suggested Jones' followers ignore solicitations from the group. 

He reacted on Twitter to Rollins’ hiring by calling him “a talentless buffoon” and labeling the PAC “a fraud.” He added that “Rollins is an incompetent buffoon who can't find his ass with both hands.”

Stone has accused Rollins of hating Trump and trying to ingratiate himself into his campaign. He tweeted in February, “@FoxNews wrong! @EdRollins is a life-time @realDonaldTrump hater who still doesn't know his ass from his elbow” and “pathetic clown @EdRollins re-cycled my op-Ed today in fruitless bid to get on @realDonaldTrump  Payroll #talentless #hack.”  

Stone has also tweeted that Rollins should be dead, Fox News head Roger Ailes may have “lost his mind” by hiring Rollins, “anyone dumb enough to hire Ed Rollins is too dumb to be President,” and Rollins “is the biggest asshole in American Politics.”
