Longtime Trump Confidant Despicably Smears Khan Family in Most Shocking Way Possible

Election '16

While Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence was posting a Facebook statement claiming Donald Trump “cherishes” the Khan family, a close confidant and advisor to Trump was calling the grieving father a “Muslim Brotherhood agent helping Hillary.”

The link Trump friend Roger Stone tweeted goes to a conspiracy theory website, that claims Khan’s son was killed before a secret mission was finished.

“Is it likely that Khan’s son was killed before his Islamist mission was accomplished? Only another type of investigation will determine that,” the author writes. “Do they ever mention how many soldiers have died because of Muslim traitors? Do they ever bring up how many Christians in the US military were killed? Yet the modernists and homosexuals continue to attack Christians.”

Al-Monitor reporter Laura Rozen tweeted the excerpt to Washington Post national political correspondent Philip Rucker, calling it “more idiotic even than expected.”

Stone seems to be enjoying the attention, he tweeted that he enjoys irritating “all you elitist jerk-offs.”
