Trump ally and Republican strategist Roger Stone insinuated that Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro was related to Fidel and Raul Castro.
On Tuesday’s edition of WIOD’s Fernand R. Amandi, the former Trump campaign advisor and current conservative media talking head and espouser of conspiracy theories was asked to weigh in on the shortlist of potential VP candidates being vetted by Hillary Clinton‘s campaign.
“Juan [sic] Castro,” Stone said, “well, his uncles Fidel and Raúl would be very proud.” Stone suggested that, by virtue of having the last name “Castro,” the native-born Texan was related to the brothers who run Cuba.
Stone also referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren as “Fauxcahontas,” and said that “Tim Kaine is a boring choice but a safe choice.”
