A giant rift appears to have broken out between then-President Donald Trump and his formerly close ally, conservative political consultant Roger Stone.
The latter viciously insulted Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as revealed by newly released video footage.
One of Trump’s Most Trusted Advisers
70-year-old Roger Stone has been one of Trump’s closest allies and one of the ideologues of the America First movement. In December 2020, a month before the end of his White House term, Trump pardoned Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, and Charles Kushner, his son-in-law’s father.
Stone had been sentenced to 40 months in prison for lying to Congress during the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump first commuted his close ally’s sentence in July 2020 before pardoning him six months later.
The new video in which Roger Stone is hurling insults at both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner was captured in January 2021 by Danish filmmaker Christoffer Guldbrandsen.
Stone was in Florida at the time. The footage is part of a documentary called “A Storm Foretold,” which is yet to be released. During the video, a seemingly agitated Stone is talking on the phone. However, who is on the other end of the line remains unclear.
It might have even been Trump himself, considering how the conservative political consultant talks about “your daughter.” Yet, it seems far more likely Stone was discussing the situation with somebody else and demonstrating what he would like to say to Trump.

Stone on Jared’s IQ and His ‘Abortionist B—-’ Wife
The 22-second video showing a full-blown rift between Stone, Trump, and the Trump family was obtained and leaked by the leftist tabloid, The Daily Beast.
It appears to show a furious Stone speaking following the January 6, 2021 events at the US Capitol. Stone, a long-time Trump confidante, is reported to have been enraged by Trump’s refusal to grant him a second pardon after already pardoning him a month earlier.
“F— you – and your abortionist b—- daughter,” Roger Stone could be heard yelling at the end of the 22-second video clip.
Before that, at the start of the video, he was ranting against Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, leavening no doubt he was in severe conflict with Trump’s son-in-law at the time.
Stone appeared to be blaming Kushner for dissuading POTUS 45 from granting him another pardon at the end of the latter’s presidential term. The consultant declared Jared Kushner had “an IQ of 70.” After that, he said Kushner would be coming to Miami.
Stone vowed Trump’s son-in-law would be “ejected” from Miami “very quickly.” The fuming Republican operative added Kushner “has 100 security guards,” but vowed to counter that with “5,000 security guards.”
Stone argued he would give Kushner a “fight” if the latter so desired. “Let’s fight. F— you,” Stone yelled towards the end of the footage before also insulting Trump’s “abortionist” daughter.
Whoa, someone doesn’t like Jared Kushner or Ivanka.

Called Trump a ‘Disgrace’?
Guldbrandsen, who filmed the footage, said he provided it to the January 6 committee.
According to the Danish filmmaker, the committee had chosen his clip of Roger Stone. Still, it didn’t play on Thursday when it showed a seven-minute compilation of video footage depicting the events outside and inside the US Capitol.
That included footage of Nancy Pelosi vowing to “punch” President Trump and of her later making panicked phone calls for help while hiding during the Capitol breach.
After the 1/6 events at the Capitol, Roger Stone had a plan to get Trump to pardon specific figures from the America First movement in order to shield them from possible prosecution after Joe Biden occupied the White House.
According to a report by The Washington Post, Stone also blamed Pat Cipollone, the then-White House counsel, for killing the plan. The same report claims Stone called Trump a “disgrace” who “betrayed everybody.”
A video of Roger Stone that was subpoenaed — has been released to the public. In the video, a visibly angry Stone berates Jared Kushner as having an IQ of “70” and then calls Ivanka Trump an “abortionist b**ch.” Stone was upset that he didn’t receive a second pardon from Trump:
