Donald Trump’s top advisor quits campaign: ‘He’s losing his grip on reality’

This Saturday afternoon, Donald Trump announced that he had “fired” his campaign advisor and longtime associate, Roger Stone. But according to POLITICO, just hours before Trump made his announcement, Stone told them that he was quitting.

This Saturday afternoon, Donald Trump announced that he had “fired” his campaign advisor and longtime associate, Roger Stone. But according to POLITICO, just hours before Trump made his announcement, Stone told them that he was quitting.

Sources close to POLITICO say that troubles in the Trump camp were “roiling before Thursday’s debate.” Stone said he felt the “campaign team surrounding Trump was feeding his bad habits,” some of which included “megalomania and peevishness.”

After Trump’s questionable performance at the GOP debate this Thursday, he went on a fairly disgusting Twitter rant aimed at Fox’s Megyn Kelly, calling her a “bimbo” among other things.

From POLITICO:

The next morning, Stone had to fight Trump’s handlers to meet with him for 15 minutes, prompting the following exchange that both of Stone’s friends, independently and separately, tell POLITICO happened verbatim:

Stone: “Donald, stop with the Megyn Kelly shit. It’s fucking crazy. It’s killing us.”

Trump: “What do you mean? I won the debate. People loved it.”

Stone: “You didn’t win the debate.”

Trump: “Yes I did. Look at the polling. Look at Drudge.”

Stone: “The Drudge Report poll isn’t a scientific poll. You won’t give me the money to pay for a scientific poll. And you’re off-message.”

Trump: “There are other polls.”

Stone: “Those are bullsh*t polls, Donald. They’re not scientific polls. We need to run a professional campaign and talk about what people really care about.”

Trump: “We’re winning.”

Ignoring Stone, Trump went on CNN and took his trashing of Kelly to a new low.

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever,” Trump said, seemingly suggesting that Kelly’s treatment of him was to due to her menstruating. Trump denied that he went there, but it was too late. Stone was already preparing his resignation.

“He is losing his grip on reality,” Stone allegedly told friends. “He has these yes-men around him. And now he’s living in a parallel world.”

After looking at Stone’s Twitter feed, it’s clear things have definitely gone south between the two.

    Though I have never considered Mr.Trump a person of interest and like most people have never actually heard any of his words, from the pundits and reporters I have come to my own conclusion about this. It is about influence, and since others do not hear the prime examples relateing to the Clintons and many others. He is showing the raw money power which is thier religon. “I want them to do something for me so I give them money.” Mr. Trump holds the Ace doubled to many a public personality and will take them down if not legally as a witness but is showing the callousness they display. This man that I never considered to be a powerful person, turns out to be Blackmail Dynamo apparently. Good for that, since no one else is willing to take the damage in spotlighting how corrupt politicians and media have become. Compared to the soap box politicians of old (say Nixon) these elite can beat the best of Russian or Commie Chinese propagandist’s. THIS IS REALITY THAT YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW ABOUT. They smile so sweetly as they feel your pain and thrust more pain upon you. CLASSIC.

    With all these polls scientific or not it seems the “controlled media” is on a hunt.With American politics being what it is I’m sure there are those rich behind the curtain folks behind things.They desparatly want him out of the way.He’s one of the rich ones and he knows their game.Wake up America.

    Not all of us can be bought, and many of us are disgusted by his behavior. Does he act like a president to you? He sure doesn’t to me. I’ve been a registered Republican for 42 years, voted for Nixon in ’72. (One of several votes I regret in hindsight.) But the Republican Party is destroying itself from within. We haven’t seen a viable candidate yet, certainly non of the 16 clowns trying so far is capable of being an effective and respectable candidate. The GOP is trying to use the technique of the Big Lie and it just won’t work. There is too much bigotry, racism, and hatred for many of us to swallow anymore. We are all human beings, repeat, we are ALL HUMAN BEINGS! Quit trying to stop total equality, it’s in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. If the GOP doesn’t get out of the 19th century and into the 21st, there won’t be a GOP much longer.

    One other thing, if all you can do is run around in circles and point at the Clintons whenever the tough questions are asked, you don’t have a campaign, you have a kindergarden recess. Grow up, grow a pair, and start doing the hard work.

    It isn’t the media that wants him out, it’s us, the voters. All he has is a mouth and an ego, both of which extend into hyperspace. He doesn’t represent anything I can support.

    Living in a parallel world with he rest of the GOP. How nice for them to each have their own little parallel worlds where the only problem is the *clang* in the White House.

    The Trump campaign reminds of the Charlie Sheen meltdown a couple of years ago. Trump saying he is ‘Winning’, disregarding what all of his tip advisors are telling him. I keep waiting for him to say he’s the best candidate for president because he’s got tiger’s blood.

    I think Kelly was directed to shoot trump down; the GOP knew trump would bite and bite he did. It was a deliberate attempt to pull trump down and the sucker couldn’t help himself. I fine example of the kind of control you want in a man with his finger on the button.

    It takes a billionaire to stand up to a billionaire. Unfortunately, while speaking the truth, the crude side of Trump comes out. If anyone doesn’t think that everyone of those politicians doesn’t think exactly what Trump says, they’re naive.

    I’m growing to the idea that he isn’t taking that many GOP voters. He is getting support from the same yahoos who watch him on TV and think that’s reality. No way he doesn’t implode by the next debate.

    Trump us a joke. The polls are of the GOP base. He’s banging the political walls by using Mccarthy’s tactics of appealing to the lowest common denominator. He proves that wealth has nothing to do with intelligence. He inherited his money from his Daddy then used his monetary power to bully others.

    How can the Repubs expect to win in 2016? They’ve alienated nearly every voting block–women, families, seniors, veterans, union members, scientists, teachers, university students, intellectuals, the handicapped, Hispanics, African-Americans, the Middle & Working Class. All they have left are OWMs, religious zealots, warmongers & gun owners. That’s why they lost to Obama & that’s why they’ll lose to another Dem in 2016. I hope the Repubs do run Trump because he can’t win!

    Thanks for your brave comment. All too often I hear excuses and whining coming from Republicans. If more of the party had your attitude, they might attract a lot of support. With the crowd of miscreants running for President this time, they guarantee a Democratic victory, and while I am not a Republican, I would like to see real back and forth between credible candidates.

    Apparently, it doesn’t matter if he implodes-he’s willing to waste money on staying in the race, and won’t leave until he decides to leave. Sadly.

    I love seeing the Republican melt down. The party as a whole needs a complete overhaul. When Congress spends hours and hours trying to do nothing but repeal Obama care or any other law of the land that has already passed, how competent can they be? We’re paying them for…WHAT? Our whole political system is a joke. The reason for Trump’s popularity has more to do with the fact that he’s not bought by the Koch Brothers than anything else. He is not bought and paid for by big business, and it’s a crying shame that all the other politicians, Dems or Repubs, are.

    I personally think you’re wrong on that, Herb. I think Trump is going to be a force to be reckoned with, and not in a good way. He’s here to stay, either as a Republican or an Independent. From some of his statements, I can see why people are flocking to his radicalism. People are fed up with politicians. End of story. The good old boy system doesn’t work any more.

    Been a Republican for 41 years and also voted for Nixon in ’72. If the Repubs continue this way I will change to independent right after the primaries. Thanks Mark

    Yes… I am so sick of his envious lackeys calling him Mr. Trump! His arrogance is off the charts for an empty suit when it comes to governing the USA. Maybe this is where we have fallen to as a country. Whatever.
