Trump claims that he fired his longtime top campaign strategist, Roger Stone, amid the tense situation with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.
But Stone hit back, claiming that Trump didn’t fire him — he quit.
The controversy began after The Donald went on CNN and seemed to suggest that Kelly was being rude during the debate because she was menstruating.
After leaving Trump’s campaign, Stone told reporters that the billionaire is “losing his grip on reality,” and that “he has all these yes men around him. And now he’s living in a parallel world.”
The Daily Mail reported:
Stone, who claims he quit the campaign and was not fired, had to wait for 15 minutes to speak to Trump the morning after the debate and the two had a fiery exchange, claims POLITICO.
The NYTimes best-selling author told Trump to ‘stop with the Megyn Kelly. It’s f***king crazy. It’s killing us.’
POLITICO claims that Trump replied, ‘What do you mean? I won the debate. People loved it.’
His long-time friend broke the news to Trump that in his opinion they didn’t win, to which the indefatigable real-estate billionaire answered, ‘Yes I did. Look at the polling. Look at Drudge.’
Stone told Trump that was not scientific polling claims POLITICO, which did not move the Republican contender, who simply stated, ‘We’re winning.’
Trump claimed on Saturday that Stone was using the Trump presidential campaign to bring attention to himself.
A spokesman for Trump said the GOP presidential candidate axed Stone, an alumnus of Richard Nixon’s White House, last night.
So far, Trump’s campaign does not seem to be hurting from the controversy. But coming polls may tell a different story.
