Roger Stone, a longtime confidante of President Trump, called members of the mainstream media “leftist retards” while attacking the coverage of his indictment in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, according to a video unearthed Monday by Media Matters. On an episode of InfoWars last week, Stone was asked about what he thought of media personalities—like CNN analyst Ana Navarro, anchor Don Lemon, and late-night host Stephen Colbert—“celebrating this illegal takedown of you.” Stone then proceeded to call Navarro a “porquita, a little piglet,” saying she was “50 pounds of [Rep. Adam] Schiff in a 20-pound bag.” He also alleged that she was a “nasty diva” who was “very abusive” to those who worked around her. “So, I revel in your hatred, Ana, and when I’m acquitted I’m going to go right back to criticizing you for your total lack of talent or intelligence,” he said. “Puerco is what I would say.”
He went on to claim that Lemon’s glasses are made of “windowpane glass,” insisting he wears them to “try to look intelligent.” As far as Colbert was concerned, he simply said “that’s the way it is.” “...I revel in the hatred of these leftist retards,” he said to cap off his rant. “They’re not talented; they’re not funny.” Stone was threatened with a gag order in federal court last week after the judge reportedly said he shouldn’t speak about his in-court proceedings as if it were “a book tour.” He recently pleaded not guilty to charges of obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and making false statements.
