Roger Stone: Trump Critics Preparing to Pounce on President with Charges of ‘Alzheimer’s’

Roger Stone

Roger Stone, one of President Donald Trump’s oldest and closest advisers outside the White House believes the Trump presidency is in great danger from within.

Appearing in a bizarre outdoor YouTube video with InfoWars founder and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Stone said that Trump enemies were going to claim that his recent leaking of classified information to senior Russian officials was evidence of Alzheimer’s. In that vein, Stone also said that his cabinet might even seek to remove him.

“They are going to claim that Donald Trump has Alzheimer’s … and that is the source of his insanity,” said Stone, who added that he spoke to Trump “fairly recently” and that there was “no evidence” of any mental deterioration.

“This is completely bogus,” he said.

Stone warned that if the Alzheimer’s narrative took hold, it would provide a pretext for Trump’s cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution and remove him from office.

“They could not beat him at the ballot box,” Stone railed “So now they seek to remove him by claiming that he is insane.”

It should be noted that while Stone said he spoke to Trump fairly recently, that seems to contradict recent statements from the president himself, who tweeted less than a week ago to say that he hadn’t spoken to his old friend in “a long time.”
