Roger Stone had a bad weekend. Word came down that Robert Mueller had secured grand jury indictments in his Trump-Russia collusion investigation and that someone could be in custody by Monday. This led Stone to lose his mind on Twitter.
Keep in mind, Roger Stone losing it on Twitter is nothing new, nor is him getting suspended. But this time he sent CNN anchors and pundits obscene tweets and vague threats, some homophobic slurs for good measure and he invoked the ever popular “fake news.” His account on Twitter was swiftly suspended.
The majority of his tweets were directed at Don Lemon. Lemon recently filed a police report for the death threats he has received from white supremacists on social media.
This time Stone’s suspension from Twitter might be a permanent one though he claims it is only temporary.
“I have been informed that I have been suspended for 3 hours and 12 minutes,” he told BuzzFeed. “While I am uncertain why, sometimes the stark truth offends some people. I’ll be baaaaack.”
