Donald Trump recently stated that he has fired long time friend and key adviser, Roger Stone.
This took place in the middle of all the controversy that has been brought upon from Trump’s comments aimed at Fox Anchor, Megyn Kelly.
On Friday, Donald Trump was interviewed on CNN about the GOP debate this past Thursday. During this debate, Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump engaged in a tense discussion about women’s rights. The fight was such a controversy that it got Trump uninvited from a major conservative gathering today.
The argument between the two led to Trump’s comments on CNN, which he feels were blown way out of proportion.
“[Megyn Kelly] can see that there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her-wherever.” These remarks towards the Fox anchor were interpreted as vile comments about Kelly’s menstrual cycle, resulting in people believing that this was a sexist attack.
Trump has a history of making hateful comments when upset, so it’s easy for people to interpret Trump’s words as hateful, vile, or sexist. However, Trump denies that his comments were vile or sexist, and that he was only referring to her nose.
“Only a deviant would think anything else,” said Trump.
On Saturday, at the annual RedState gathering, Jeb Bush said that Trump should apologize to Kelly for what he said.
“Do we want to win? Do we want to insult 53 percent of all voters? What Donald Trump said is wrong.”
Amid of all this, Adviser Roger Stone was axed. However, Stone denies the fact that he was fired, and that in all actuality, he resigned.
Last night, Stone tweeted this statement, “Sorry @realDonaldTrump didn’t fire me- I fired Trump. Disagree with diversion to food fight with @megynkelly away core issue messages.”
There was a resignation letter that was reportedly sent to Trump this morning from Stone, stating that current controversies and provocative media fights are the reasons for Stone’s departure.
