Former Adviser Says Trump "....Is Losing A Grip On Reality"; Fox & Friends Confirms It

Losing his grip on reality?

Late last week Donald Trump hit another of his close advisers with "You're fired." Or so he claims. The former Adviser , Roger Stone, has a converse argument about his departure and slats his word with from the Trump camp with "losing a grip on reality."

Later in this piece we posted a few tweets that of Trump on Fox News Fox & Friends with confirmation of Stone's comments.

Roger Stone: I Wasn’t Fired, I Quit, Trump’s Losing Grip on Reality

Reports have emerged that Donald Trump has given the “you’re fired” treatment to his ally and adviser Roger Stone. However, Stone said that he was the one who called it quits with Trump, saying that his constant feuding is distracting from the core issues.

Trump told The Washington Post‘s Robert Costathat Stone would dispute how the split happened, and indeed, Stone said he was the one who called it quits. The real estate mogul insisted that the move was a result of Stone not being a serious contributor to his campaign, while also citing the publicity his statements have recently received.

A Trump spokesperson reportedly told MSNBC, “we have a tremendously successful campaign and Roger wanted to use the campaign for his own personal publicity.

POLITICO reported that they received word from friends of Stone that the former adviser sent in his resignation about an hour before Trump’s interview.

Stone’s friends also reportedly said that Stone had become increasingly fed-up with Trump’s controversies, his personality, and his confidence in uncertain poll numbers. Stone reportedly warned Trump not to go after Megan Kelly, but after he did so, his friends said he came to them with his frustration.

“He is losing his grip on reality,” Stone said. “He has these yes-men around him. And now he’s living in a parallel world.

Stone offered no direct comment, but a copy of the email was reportedly provided:

“I was proud to have played a role in the launch of your presidential campaign. Your message of ‘Make America Great Again’ harkened back to the Reagan era. Restoring national pride and bringing jobs back to America – your initial and still underlying message – is a solid conservative message. In fact, it catapulted you instantly into a commanding lead in the race…Unfortunately, the current controversies involving personalities and provocative media fights have reached such a high volume that it has distracted attention from your platform and overwhelmed your core message…With this current direction of the candidacy, I no longer can remain involved in your campaign.”
Stone has since offered two tweets regarding his departure:

Losing touch with reality? After a mutual schmoozing session between Trump and Fox News's Roger Ailes, Trump appear on the zaniest news show on Cable TV: Fox & Friends.

Simply our tax code? Is that a policy item that actually helps
middle class and low income Americans?

.@realDonaldTrump: "We have to simplify our [tax] code. We have to bring down our taxes."

What comes next should be viewed and heard along with warnings about comments that some will consider offensive. No the comments are not vulgar; they are comments that could only emanate fro a person who cannot have full control of his faculties.

Invade Iran, take and hold the oil?  
Does Trump not realize the level of jingoism and insanity inherent in such a remark? How about the prospect the only middle Eastern nation that would find such imperialism acceptable would be a temporary lapse in sanity via the Saudi Arabian monarch?  After a period of Saudi insanity, even that nation wouldn't find Trumps imperialist acts acceptable. How bout the extent to which such an act would ignite international terror? Are his advisers actually advising on such talk, or is the talk simply carnival barking for the seething Fox & Friends audience.  

In 2011, Trump stated how he would handle issues related to Iraq. The appearance on Fox & Friends foretold his comments of this morning.

Think Progress (April 2011)

I very simply said that Iran is going to takeover Iraq, and if that’s going to happen, we should just stay there and take the oil. They want the oil, and why should we? We de-neutered Iraq, Iran is going to walk in, take it over, take over the second largest oil fields in the world. That’s going to happen. That would mean that all of those soldiers that have died and been wounded and everything else would have died in vain– and I don’t want that to happen. I want their parents and their families to be proud.
Simplify the tax code?  
How would such a tax code change help people in the middle and lower income brackets in comparisons the benefit to high income earners?

Tax code changes that benefit the rich disproportionate the middle class isn't a surprise. The GOP has exist with such a policy for decades (hence Reaganomics)  attacking a Middle Eastern nation to take and hold their oil fields is literally insane.
