Roger Stone, who has been a long time confidant to President Trump and was once an adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign, deleted an August 13 Instagram post that featured a swastika.
The post shows Stone, Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Rudy Giuliani, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Fox News’ Sean Hannity donning astronaut suits that have swastikas featured on the left side of their chests. There is also a swastika on the upper-right hand corner of the picture.
“I love this – proud to be in this crew – but the only lies being told are by liberal scumbags #maga #republican #infowars,” Stone wrote.
Stone later deleted the post and then apologized in a subsequent post under an image that had “SORRY” written in all caps.
“Last night I posted an image attacking me and other supporters of the President that was sent to me by a hater,” Stone wrote. “I did so to mock them. I did not notice the image had a swastika in the corner. When it was brought to my attention I deleted – so u libtards who are frothing at the mouth can stop sending insulting comments.”
Stone is currently being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller for possible ties to the Russians.
