Roger Stone is facing down the wrath of FNC’s Geraldo Rivera after he suggested that CNN political analyst Ana Navarro and former CNN Roland Martin are stupid and were token ethnic hires.
On Friday, Stone, a longtime adviser to GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, left his campaign. Reports have also surfaced that he was fired.
But Stone vigorously denies the reports that Trump canned him.
“Sorry @realDonaldTrump didn’t fire me- I fired Trump,” he wrote on Twitter Saturday afternoon. “Diasagree [sic] with diversion to food fight with @megynkelly away core issue messages.”
In the midst of his testy dealings with Trump, Stone, an occasional Daily Caller contributor, received a threat from Rivera, who has been known to take a punch or two.
On Saturday, Stone offered a lengthy response to Geraldo’s threat.
“I would remind that there was a time when public figures settled their differences with pistols at dawn. Maybe there’s something to be said for that. Bring it on, Geraldo. I’ll let you know next time I’m in the building. After all, what’s left when your shows have been cancelled and your greatest contribution to TV in recent years is losing on Celebrity Apprentice?”
Stone went on to explain how much he used to respect Geraldo.
He also explained what started their feud — a tweet about Navarro and Martin being ethnic hires.
“Geraldo went nuts and played the race card by calling me a racist,” Stone explained.
And no, much like Trump, he didn’t apologize.
“I’ve been in the real trenches of American politics for more than 40 years, while Geraldo has been visiting trenches in the hope that someone will take a shot at him while his camera’s rolling,” Stone wrote. “…If Geraldo wants to meet me at dawn, I’d be there.”
