Roger Stone Wants Americans to Punch 'Fat' Steve Bannon for Claiming Trump Has Alzheimer's

Roger Stone lashed out at Steve Bannon on Saturday, calling the former White House chief strategist a "fat disheveled load of s**t" and an "informant for Robert Mueller."

In a statement shared to conservative social media platform Gab, Stone alleged: "Bannon was an informant for Robert Mueller and indisputably perjured himself at my trial. He also accused Donald Trump Junior of being a Russian traitor and insisted that President Donald Trump was suffering from Alzheimer's."

He added: "If you see this fat disheveled load of s**t I strongly recommend that you punch him in the mouth as hard as you possibly can. Do it for America !"

Roger, you really need to relax.

Newsweek reached out to Bannon's representatives for comment. This story will be updated with any response.

In his book Ticking Clock: Behind the Scenes at 60 Minutes, TV producer Ira Rosen revealed that Bannon "believed Trump was suffering from early stage dementia and that there was a real possibility he would be removed from office by the 25th Amendment, where the Cabinet could vote that the president was no longer mentally capable of carrying out his duties."

The possibility of invoking the 25th Amendment was widely discussed on numerous occasions throughout Trump's erratic presidency.

Bannon, CEO of Trump's 2016 campaign, told a federal court in 2019 that he believed Stone was the link between the campaign and WikiLeaks. "The campaign had no official access to WikiLeaks or to Julian Assange," Bannon said during the trial. "But Roger would be considered if we needed an access point."

Bannon maintained that Stone "implied that he had a connection with WikiLeaks," but never outright stated it to anyone in the campaign.

Following Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Stone was indicted on seven counts, including witness tampering and lying to congressional lawmakers. He was found guilty and sentenced to more than three years in prison, but Trump commuted his sentence in 2020.

Last August, Bannon was indicted for directing large sums of money from the "We Build the Wall" fundraising effort to Brian Kolfage, the movement's founder.

"As alleged, the defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors, capitalizing on their interest in funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars, under the false pretense that all of that money would be spent on construction," said then-acting U.S. attorney Audrey Strauss.

In response to Bannon's arrest, Stone told New York Magazine: "Karma is a b****. But I am praying for him."
