Former adviser to Trump refers to black radio host as a “negro” live on air

Written by Konrad Ostrowski

Roger Stone, a former adviser to Donald Trump, was caught on live radio referring to the show’s host as a “negro” just days after the US President commuted his prison sentence.

Stone appeared on the Mo’Kelly Show on Saturday where the presenter, Morris Kelly, suggested that his 40-month sentence was commuted because of his friendship with Trump.

The 67-year-old seemed to believe his voice couldn’t be heard as he said: “I don’t really feel like arguing with this negro.”

He then went quiet for several seconds as Kelly asked him what he had said before returning to claim he had technical difficulties despite staying on the line.

Stone refuted that he used the word when challenged by Kelly, saying: “I did not. You’re out of your mind.”

Mr Kelly later tweeted saying: “Hey everyone. I heard what I heard. The audio is the audio. I will address in Hour 2. We’re blowing out the second half of the show. #RogerStone I am nobody’s NEGRO.”

Stone was convicted on seven counts including witness tampering and obstruction of justice following the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

He was sentenced to 40 months in federal prison in February but had this commuted by the President on July 10th.
