Roger Stone might as well be the father of Satan. On May 12, Netflix premiered a documentary about the republican political consultant, lobbyist, and strategist.
Get Me Roger Stone, written and directed by Dylan Bank, Daniel DiMauro, and Morgan Pehme, gives us a look into the dark and demented mind of a man described as someone “who has no soul.”
Stone has his mentor, Richard Nixon, tatted on his back. He idolizes a political criminal.
The Republican peacock is known for persuading his clients to use the most poisonous possible talking points, being a master manipulator, and creating the modern day sleaze ball lobbyist.
Peep his ink
The documentary maps the road to his biggest political accomplishment – getting Trump in the White House. Even though the Trump presidency shocked the world, Stone had been plotting it for years. He created Donald Trump as a political figure.
He even published a book back in January, The Making of the President 2016: How Donald Trump Orchestrated a Revolution.
According to Tucker Carlson, commentator on Fox News,
“Whereas the rest of us looked at Trump and saw someone who was impossibly vulgar an impolite, Roger looked at him and said, ‘You know this is someone who voter’s might like.'”
He’s been fuckin’ with Trumpito from the very beginning
Stone has had 40-year career as a strategist. How did the agent provocateur manage to stay in the game for this long?
Let’s peep his legacy.
Stone dropped out of college to work for Richard Nixon’s Campaign to re-elect the President
After Nixon resigned, Stone was hired to work for the Bob Dole Campaign where he was fired for being a “Dirty Trickster.” Ronald Reagan then hired him to work for his campaign in 76′.
At the age of 25 Stone became national chairman of the Young Republicans.
In 1980, Stone paired up with Charlie Black and Paul Manafort, to form Black, Manafort, and Stone, a political consulting firm, said to be responsible for the instrumental success of Ronald Reagan’s 1984 campaign
Skipping ahead to 2000, Stone served as campaign manager of Donald Trump’s aborted campaign for president in the Reform Party primary
Roger Stone has also been accused of working with Al Sharpton during the 2004 presidential campaign just to undermine the Democratic Party’s chances of winning the election.
This guy literally gives zero fucks!
According to a New York Times article back in 2007, Stone was forced to resign by Joseph Bruno, the Majority Leader of the New York State Senate, after allegations that Stone had left a nasty voicemail threatening Bernard Spitzer, the father of Eliot Spitzer.
The expletive laced message was left on the elder Spitzer’s answering machine in which Stone threatened to prosecute the elderly man if he did not implicate his son in wrongdoing.
Bernard Spitzer hired a private detective agency that traced the call to Roger Stone’s wife’s phone. Roger Stone denied leaving the message, despite the fact that his voice was recognized, claiming he was at a movie that was not even screened that night.
One of Roger’s rules:
“Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.”
Stone is the definition of a political pit bull and will stop at nothing to undermine his rivals. In January 2008, Stone founded Citizens United Not Timid, an anti-Hillary Clinton 527 group.
Seven years down the line Stone co-authored The Clintons’ War on Women, focusing on Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct allegations
In Get Me Roger Stone, Jeffrey Toobin, writer for the New Yorker , described Stone as,
“The sinister Forrest Gump of American politics. He’s not just this simple minded guy but this Machiavellian almost crazy guy…”
