Trump Adviser Roger Stone Has You Covered on Priebus Names

Last week I casually quipped that I hoped Reince Priebus would be replaced as the Republican party chairman next year because I'm running out of ways to mock his name. While it's true that I am running out of immature references for Mister Priebus, I wasn't entirely serious.

The good or bad news, depending on your perspective, is that longtime Trump adviser and race-baiting conspiracy theory goon Roger Stone has us covered.

Stone is not pleased with reports that the RNC is considering cutting their loses and abandoning his friend Donald and, more specifically, Stone says RNC Chairman Reince Priebus should be prosecuted for... something.

And that's not all.

Longtime Trump confidant and adviser Roger Stone has regularly attacked RNC chairman Reince Priebus, labeling him a corrupt “douchebag” and calling for him to be “prosecuted.” Media outlets have been reporting on strained ties between the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump’s struggling presidential campaign. [...]

Stone for years has attacked Priebus as corrupt, a “loser,” a “douchebag,” a Republican In Name Only, and a “f*ck up.” He also habitually refers to Priebus as “Reince Penis.”

Even at my most immature moment, I would never refer to the chairman as "Reince Penis" or "Rancid Penis." Thankfully, we have Roger Stone for that.

At the very least I have the decency to employ various euphemisms, but Stone is not quite that sophisticated.

As for the reports that the RNC might abandon Trump -- I don't buy it. It's way too late for that. The time to do that was in 2015, not three months before the election. If nothing Trump has said or done up until now is enough to give the RNC pause, nothing will.
