Roger Stone Channels Louis Gohmert: 'Don't Cast Asparagus On Me'

Maybe he thought it was cute or funny, but it just sounds dumb and pathetic.

Remember Louie Gohmert's meltdown in a Congressional hearing where he shouted about "casting aspersions on his asparagus?" Yeah, good times.

Apparently Roger Stone's Days of Rage in Cleveland include the possibility of false asparagus, in true Gohmert tradition.

Yesterday, former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone chatted with Dana Loesch about the “Days of Rage” he is planning with Alex Jones to make sure that delegates and party officials at the Republican National Convention don’t “steal” the nomination from Trump.

Stone, who remains one of Trump’s close confidants, said he resented any claim that he was provoking violence.

“If somebody wanted to cast false asparagus on this, sure, but it’s a famous phrase from the ’68 convention,” he said.

(We are not sure if he simply flubbed the word “aspersions” or was deliberately channeling Rep. Louie Gohmert.)
