President Trump’s longtime friend and former adviser Roger Stone was uninvited to an annual dinner by a Florida GOP group after attacking former first lady Barbara Bush.

The Okaloosa Republican Executive Committee told Northwest Florida Daily News on Thursday that the invitation was rescinded after Stone called Bush “a nasty drunk.”

Stone reportedly also said she “drank so much booze, if they cremated her … her body would burn for three days,” according to media reports.

The article goes on to state the following:

The GOP committee’s chairman, Mark Franks, said the organization “ended our contract” with Stone, who was scheduled to be the keynote speaker for their Lincoln Reagan Day Dinner in May.

“It’s tough to lose a speaker when you’re three weeks out, but this is what I felt needed to be done out of respect for Barbara Bush,” Franks said. “I thought he’d be entertaining but for me this went over the line.”

Stone, however, contradicted Franks and told the Florida outlet that he was the one who ended the contract.

“I cancelled my appearance as the sponsors wanted to censor my public comments, which is unacceptable,” he said in an email.
