Roger Stone's Grandkid Wants YOU To Help Pay His Granddaddy's Legal Bills
According to Celebrity Net Worth dot com, Roger Stone is worth $20 million dollars. But that doesn't mean he doesn't want your money! He absolutely does.
Ever since Robert Mueller began investigating Stone for his possible involvement in Russian collusion, Stone has been running around begging the American people for money to help cover his legal fees, which he says will amount to half a million dollars. He even went on Tucker Carlson the other day in order to beg for more money, and to talk about how sad it is that he even has to go on there, and on Infowars, in order to beg for money. If the American people do not all gather together and collectively fund his legal battles, he warns that he won't even be able to pay for his grandkids to go to college -- which means they'd have to take out loans or something, like peasants.
Not only that, but these rising legal costs could severely cut into his jaunty hat budget.
But now, one of those grandkids is stepping up to the plate to moneybeg for him!
My name is Nick Stevens. I am the grandson of the legendary Republican Political Operative and longtime Donald Trump advisor, Roger Stone. While it is very cool to have your grandfather be an important part of history, I can tell you that is not fun for me to see my grandfather and our family under attack.
Did you hear that? It's not FUN. Is your heart not breaking for this poor child?
I know for a fact that my grandfather’s legal expenses from his lawyers are expected to be more than half a million dollars. My grandfather has even been forced to use the small amount he has made from the sale of the five books he has written that was supposed to help pay for my college education and the college education of my sisters and my cousins – all of Roger Stone’s grandchildren.
Again, Roger Stone is worth about 20 million dollars.
So far, the campaign has raised $840 out of a goal of $100,000 in two days, and although that's a small amount of money, it almost definitely comes from people who have far less than 20 million dollars. Who probably do not have college funds set up for all their grandchildren. Who probably make less than the $100,000 he is asking for a year.
The entitlement here is truly astounding. Particularly coming from conservatives, who mock ideas like subsidized college, or things that would prevent people from going bankrupt with medical bills, who tell poor people to just pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Clearly, they don't want to be the change they wish to see in the world.
Don't give your money to Roger Stone -- give it to Wonkette!
