Roger Stone, the brash and controversial longtime ally and associate of Donald Trump, had his Twitter account suspended this Saturday.
The suspension comes after Stone went on a tirade against CNN’s Don Lemon and others starting this Friday after reports surfaced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was expected to hand down the first indictments in his investigation this Monday.
“I have been informed that I have been suspended for 3 hours and 12 minutes,” Stone said in a statement according to The Wrap. “While I am uncertain why, sometimes the stark truth offends some people. No surprising — it took me 2 years to get verified.”
A Twitter spokesperson tells TheWrap that although they cannot comment on individual accounts, their police on “abusive behavior” includes “behavior that harasses.”
During his tirade, Stone referred to Lemon as “a buffoon,” and an “ignorant lying c*cksucker” and a “dumb piece of sh*t.” Other figures at CNN targeted by Stone in his meltdown were Jake Tapper, Ana Navarro, Bill Kristol, Carl Bernstein and Charles Blow.
Some of the tweets against Lemon had an air of homophobia, including one that referred to oral sex and another calling the anchor an “arrogant partyboi.”
Below is the text, as written, from Stone’s now-deleted tweets:
“@donlemon stop lying about about the Clinton’s and Uranium you ignorant lying covksucker !!!! You fake news you dumb piece of sh*t.”
“@donlemon must be confronted, humiliated, mocked and punished. Dumber than dog sh*t.”
“@donlemon you come across on tv as a dull witted arrogant partyboi. You lie constantly and no one who knows you thinks you r bright”
“No .@CharlesBlow YOU Lie- u have no cried you fast talking arrogant fake news piece of sh*t !”
“@donlemon there r no credible “fact-checks” that clear the Clinton’s on Uranium. Even the people at CNN say u are a buffoon behind you back”
“If Carl Bernstein says something the overwhelming odds are that it’s false lied about Watergate lying lying now https://t.co/8VxXaAG4pC”
