Former Trump advisor Roger Stone completely ignored a vile homophobic rant from a TV interviewer who used shocking anti-gay slurs.
Mr Stone, who served as an advisor to the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump, was taking part in a Skype interview with Alex Jones of conspiracy website InfoWars when the incident occurred.
The pair were discussing concerns about Stone’s ties to Russia raised by Rep. Adam Schiff, co-chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence when Jones set off on a rant.
After Stone raised Shiff’s “irresponsible allegations”, Jones seized on the moment to launch into a vile homophobic rant aimed at Schiff, who is in fact married to a woman and has two children.
In the rant, transcribed by Media Matters, the talk show host fumed: “I’m not against gay people… but Schiff looks like the archetypal cocksucker with those little deer-in-the-headlight eyes and all his stuff.
“And there’s something about this fairy, hopping around, bossing everybody around, trying to intimidate people like me and you, I want to tell Congressman Schiff and all the rest of them, “Hey listen a**hole, quit saying Roger and I” — and I’ve never used cussing in 22 years but the gloves are off – “listen you son of a b***h, what the f**k’s your problem?
“You want to sit here and say that I’m a goddamn, f**kng Russian. You get in my face with that I’ll beat your goddamn ass, you son of a b***h. You piece of s**t. You f**king goddamn f**ker. Listen f**khead, you have f**king crossed a line. Get that through your goddamn f**king head. Stop pushing your s**t.
“You’re the people that have f**ked this country over and gangraped the shit out of it and lost an election. So stop shooting your mouth off claiming I’m the enemy. You got that you goddamn son of a b***h? Fill your hand.” I’m sorry, but I’m done. You start calling me a foreign agent, those are f**king fighting words.”
Stone completely ignored the shocking homophobic rant, waiting for Jones to finish before saying: “I think Adam Schiff has acted irresponsibly and I think he needs to be confronted with his exact words.”
When Jones cut in again with another homophobic slur, claiming “he’s sucking globalist dick”, Stone again ignored the comments.
The interview continued for another hour after the rant.
