Roger Stone got a last minute reprieve from Donald Trump shortly before he was to go to jail and serve a 40 month sentence. That doesn’t mean, however, that the long time political adviser has been able to keep himself out of trouble.
The former adviser to the President conducted an interview with radio host Morris O’Kelly. When the talk became contentious, Stone derisively referred to O’Kelly as a negro.
The contention focused on the matter of Stone’s sentence commutation. The self-proclaimed dirty trickster said he was judged by, “a jury of my political opponents.”
O’Kelley countered that Stone is only free due to his friendship with the President. “There are thousands of people treated unfairly daily. Hell, your number just happened to come up in the lottery. I’m guessing it was more than just luck, Roger, right?”

Stone said in a muffled voice, possibly to someone in the room with him, “I don’t really feel like arguing with this negro.”
After being called out for the slur by O’Kelly, Stone responded, “I did not. You’re out of your mind. You’re out of your mind.” O’Kelly then conducted the rest of the spot.
This isn’t the first time Stone has shown comfort in using racial slurs. He was banned by both MSNBC and CNN back in 2016 for his incendiary tweets. Those since-deleted tweets included Stone calling journalist Roland Martin a “fat negro and a “stupid negro.”
