I can’t help thinking Trump’s idiocy caused this.

Defying U.S., China and Iran Near Trade and Military Partnership

The investment and security pact would vastly extend China’s influence in the Middle East, throwing Iran an economic lifeline and creating new flash points with the United States.

‘I am nobody’s NEGRO.’ Black radio host responds after Roger Stone heard making a racial slur

  • President Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone appeared to use a racial slur while on-air with Black radio show host Morris W. O’Kelly from “The Mo’Kelly Show.”
  • In one moment during the interview, after he was asked about how Trump commuted his sentence, Stone can be heard muttering: “I don’t really feel like arguing with this Negro.”
  • After being asked to repeat himself, Stone insisted that he didn’t use any racial slur, telling O’Kelly: “You’re out of your mind.”
  • The radio show host later tweeted: “Hey everyone. I heard what I heard. The audio is the audio…I am nobody’s NEGRO.”


This tweet has the audio. He definitely and clearly said it.

He’s a criminal, who should be in jail right now. :unamused: but instead, we get to hear stories like this one. So fucking gross.

Yup. I added a link to a tweet at the bottom of that post with the audio. It is very, very blatant. And when called on it Stone goes totally silent.

This site has the full interview. The slur comes at 13:00. For 45 seconds after host tried to get a response. You can hear Stone sighing in the background, then he comes back pretending he couldn’t hear him, then when he finally answers he gaslights the host and denies it.
