Roger Stone, a longtime advisor to former President Donald Trump supporting him in his goal to reclaim the White House in 2024 called the wife of Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis a c*** on X Wednesday night.
It has been noted that Stone was responding to a post from failed GOP congressional candidate Mike Crispi objecting to Casey DeSantis’s invocation of her children on the campaign trail.
“Casey Desantis campaigning: ‘I have a 6, 5 and a 3-year-old’ ‘I have a 6, 5 and a 3-year-old’ ‘I have a 6, 5 and a 3-year-old’ ‘I have a 6, 5 and a 3-year-old’ ‘Did you know I have a 6, 5 and a 3-year-old?’” remarked Crispi mockingly.
“SeeUNextTuesday,” replied Stone, using the common slang for the derogatory, misogynistic word.
Ron and Casey DeSantis, the latter of whom survived a bout with breast cancer in 2021 and 2022 — have two daughters and a son together. She is known to be not only a close confidante but valued political advisor by her husband.
It has been noted that the day before DeSantis cruised to a historic reelection victory in 2022 and amid speculation that DeSantis would eventually announce a presidential campaign, Trump boasted that he knew “more about him [DeSantis] than anybody other than perhaps his wife, who is really running his campaign.”
Wednesday’s profane outburst did not mark the first time Stone has taken aim at DeSantis’s wife. In May, Politico‘s Michael Kruse quoted Stone in a long, unflattering profile of Florida’s first lady panned by DeSantis allies as a hit piece.
“Have you ever noticed how much Ron DeSantis’ wife Casey is like Lady Macbeth?” asked Stone at the time, who was quoted alongside three Democrats in the Politico piece.
The shared enmity of Casey DeSantis by progressive media and the Trump campaign was also exhibited by a June article published by the Daily Beast’s Katie Baker that referred to DeSantis as ‘Walmart Melania [Trump].”
“Ron and Casey will also never be the Trumps,” insisted Baker.
