Donald Trump's campaign said Saturday it has fired top political adviser Roger Stone -- who promptly said he had quit.
"Mr. Trump fired Roger Stone last night. We have a tremendously successful campaign and Roger wanted to use the campaign for his own personal publicity. He has had a number of articles about him recently and Mr. Trump wants to keep the focus of the campaign on how to Make America Great Again," a campaign spokesperson told CNN.
Stone, however, told CNN that he quit, and provided what he said was his resignation letter.
"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," the letter says.

Stone is an old Nixon dirty trixter and a proud veteran of CREEP.
(and utterly lacking in self awareness)
(Sadly, not a photoshop)
More recently, you may know him as the leader of the Brooks Brothers Riot, in which a mob of GOP operatives and Tom DeLay office staffers, hired by Jim Bakker, stormed the vote count in the Florida 2000 mess and got it shut down.
I guess Stone forgot to advise Trump not accuse the female debate moderator of being on her period. What does this loser think he's being paid for, anyway?
Are we getting near total implosion and withdrawal from the race time? With top advisors fleeing, this has shades of Ross Perot's crackup before pulling out. Or will Trump go full Katherine Harris and keep on crazying til the end?
This is easily the most hilarious season of GOP Clown Car ever!
