Roger Stone was spotted at Donald Trump’s event where he announced his candidacy for 2024, according to Mediaite. The longtime confidant of the former president was captured in footage removing his glasses during Trump’s speech.
Stone was reportedly revealed to make snide remarks about Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in a documentary by filmmaker Christoffer Guldbrandsen. Stone made fun of Kushner’s intelligence and called Ivanka an “abortionist bi***.”
The footage was taken after he learned that Trump will not pardon him a second time after he was accused of contributing to the January 6 Capitol riot. “Jared Kushner has an IQ of 70,” said Stone.
“He’s coming to Miami. We will eject him from Miami very quickly; he will be leaving very quickly. Very quickly,” before adding, “F*** your abortionist bi***.”
Trump’s speech came just after the midterm elections, much to the disapproval of the Republican establishment that urged the former president to at least wait until after the Georgia Senate runoff election between Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker.
During the announcement, Trump compared the state of America today to what it was when he was in office, asserting that the country was safer and more prosperous.
He then officially declared his candidacy “in order to make America great and glorious again.” Trump’s announcement follows a crushing GOP defeat during the midterms.
The alleged “red wave” that many conservatives were anticipating did not come to fruition, and instead, the party lost key races in Nevada, Arizona, and Pennsylvania.
While the GOP saw a narrow victory in the House, Florida swiftly carried the party to victory, even winning over the historically blue Miami-Dade County.
The results led many Republicans and Democrats to say that this is now DeSantis’ party, much to the ire of Trump who took to social media to criticize the Florida governor.
Trump alleged that without his endorsement and MAGA voters, DeSantis would not have won his election four years ago.
