I’m repeating myself at this point – nothing makes any sense.
Roger Stone, Trump’s off the books campaign Chief of Staff, gave an interview to a drive-time Atlanta DJ on Easter Sunday to talk about – what else? – how he has absolutely nothing to do with the smear campaign Trump coordinated against Cruz through the National Enquirer.
Because you know Meet the Press, Face The Nation, Stephopottamus, Fox News Sunday, and no big name outlet would want to talk about the biggest story this weekend with the only person named as a source in it. Right? No sirree, we’ll leave that to low watt Atlanta AM disc jockeys getting time and a half on Easter weekend.
Now, we’re to believe that this shit-on-his-shoes AM nobody has sources “deep inside” the Cruz campaign who are feeding him the line that “it’s all true”. Gee, who could that be?
Now Roger Stone bills himself as Lee Atwater without the strong ethical streak. In the interview, he relates the old political cliche that the worst thing that can happen to a pol besides people talking about them is people NOT talking about them. Ba-dum-bump. And, a first for me, here’s a link to Raw Story with some of the other tidbits from the interview and also the audio:
Donald Trump’s BFF Roger Stone knows that Donald Trump couldn’t possibly be behind the Ted Cruz sex scandal story the National Enquirer reported this week. DTrump told ABC’s This Week on Sunday that it was not him behind the story saying, “I have no control over the National Enquirer.” Stone echoed the same sentiment on AM970 where he told host Frank Morano that by definition he couldn’t be one of Trump’s henchmen because he’s not being paid. Cruz not only blamed Trump and Stone but he also accused Stone of being someone who copulates with rodents. “Knowing what a couple of these women look like,” Stone continued, “I actually feel like he’s the one who has been copulating with rodents.”
There’s that gratuitous, characteristic treatment of women from the Trump campaign. Cruz awkwardly implied I’m a ratfuck son-of-a-bitch but it looks like his women are the rats he’s fucking. One of which is Katrina Pierson who is Trump’s campaign spokeswoman. They probably have blood coming out of wherever too. Put that cheese in your mousetrap, Hurricane Katrina. But he continued:
Some have questioned if Ted Cruz will sue the National Enquirer for the story, but Stone claims that Cruz won’t because he can’t. “Again, why won’t he sue. It won’t cost him anything, he’s a lawyer himself…To be absolutely clear, Ted Cruz won’t sue because the allegations are largely true. That’s why he won’t sue.”
Is that Dan Ratherian enough for you? It’s fake but probably accurate. Eh, close enough.
Excuse me, guys and gals. I’ve got to go, uh, wash my hands in that hotel over there. Be right back. Now it’s time to turn on the charm while everyone around me just looks the other way. Right?
Playing coy isn’t exactly Stone’s strong suit. No, that would usually be a pink boa, a ball gag, and a dog collar. But there are several reasons why a lawsuit didn’t get filed over Easter weekend.
The first being, besides defamation and libel lawsuits are notoriously difficult to prove, is that if a candidate or any public figure files that kind of lawsuit, all you’re going to hear for the duration of it is the candidate’s name and “sex scandal” every time their name is mentioned. And he knows this. Please don’t throw me into that briar patch.
Not that any of this deters Trump’s smear merchants at the Conservative Outhouse and Peg Leg Pete’s Gateway Pundit. There is no new “news” in the interview. Just the usual innuendo that because Cruz hasn’t filed a $100 million dollar libel and defamation lawsuit since the story with no names, no sources, and no interviews with any involved parties broke on Good Friday is some Jimmy Swaggart-like admission of guilt. And they were right about John Edwards so they’re right about this too.
So right that they haven’t tried to interview any of the people they named as Cruz’s alleged paramours or his campaign. In fact, the greatest “evidence” they claim to have is a video of him walking in and out of a hotel with a woman NOT his wife. Because a candidate who’s been flying all over the country running for President for the last year doesn’t ever go to a hotel or have a campaign staff around him 24 hours a day. And he’s just going to walk in and out of a hotel over and over again with the national spotlight on him with his mistress at his side at the same time.
As per the script, Stone then implies that Heidi Cruz coordinated the bailout of the awful Goldman Sachs herself. He also claims that Rubio’s private investigators took the information he paid them to gather, continued the investigation on their own dime, and then sold the information themselves to the National Enquirer. He sure does know a lot about Rubio’s private investigators.
Which, again, is odd because why would the National Enquirer ask the allegedly non-affiliated Stone for comment on a story that has absolutely nothing to do with him.
If it comes out that Cruz is a moral shitbag pretender, I’ll be the first to say I’m done with him.
But…if all this turns out to be a lie, there are a bunch of formerly reputable bloggers who are nothing more than low-down, rotten motherfuckers trafficking in slime against the only Tea Party conservative to fight tooth and nail against the GOP establishment and Democrats in Washington.
Hey Jim, you know all those pictures in your masthead of Iraqis holding bloody shirts? Yea, Trump wasn’t for any of that you scumbag sellout.
