Top Trump advisor says he’s “try-sexual” when asked about swinging sex parties

Familiar with Former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone? He clearly reckons himself something of a transgressive naughty-pants. A lobbyist for Trump for decades, Stone earned a reputation as a dirty trickster during the Nixon Administration. He left Trump’s campaign on August 8, 2015 in a storm of controversy, claiming he quit while Trump insisted he was fired.

A 2008 New Yorker profile reports Stone and his wife put out numerous personal ads in a magazine called Local Swing Fever, trying to lure potential mates with copy reading: “Hot, insatiable lady and her handsome body builder husband, experienced swingers, seek similar couples or exceptional muscular… single men.”

When word got out, Stone insisted it was a setup perpetuated by a “very sick individual,” but nevertheless, he had to resign from Bob Dole’s campaign over the ensuing scandal. Years later, he admitted to New Yorker writer Jeffery Toobin that the ads were real:

“When that whole thing hit the fan in 1996, the reason I gave a blanket denial was that my grandparents were still alive. I’m not guilty of hypocrisy. I’m a libertarian and a libertine.”

Since the new Netflix documentary “Get Me Roger Stone” strongly implies that Stone is bisexual, an interview asks him point blank whether that’s the case. Stone replies, “I’m try-sexual. I’ve tried everything.”

    terminal gayface. Simply incurable.

    Good on Roger Stone. In general, conservatives are more accepting of male bisexuality than are liberals.

    Liberals tend to think that male bisexuality is gross but that female bisexuality is “hot”. This is known as the “bisexual double standard” of liberals. It proves that liberals are the true homophobes in society.

    • Donston

      They’re not “more accepting”. Gay and gay-leaning Conservatives are just more likely to live a “straight life” or be obsessed with retaining a sense of hetero-normalcy. While many Conservative men that are living a “gay lifestyle” are more likely to be put off by gay-identifying men and are more likely to be hetero-worshipers. Of course, plenty people of all political beliefs fit these categories, but you of course already know that, though your trolling forces you to pretend otherwise.

      Do you have anything else you could do, Brian? Maybe gardening, or playing bingo? I think commenting online isn’t your strongest skill.

    • DCguy

      Oh Look, the new incarnation of the “Brian” screename still has a problem with spouting off lies and not being able to offer any proof.

      LOL! Remember where you are posting, “Jaxton;” You’re on Queerty, not Fox News or Breitbart. Your right-wing double-talk doesn’t work here; conservatives see homosexuality as gross, and male bisexuality is barely given a thought, except when their gay sex scandals are discovered. Female bisexuality, on the other hand, is a straight male fetish, as long as they can insinuate themselves as the male.

      It is conservatives that tend to find male bisexuality–or sexuality of any kind–as “gross,” as they find them “hypersexual,” “promiscuous,” and undiscriminating in their sex partners, but they have no issues with bisexual women.

      But, how do you claim that a “bisexual double standard,” which actually exists in conservative circles anyway, proves HOMOphobia; wouldn’t it only indicate–at best–a hypocrisy regarding the sexes? Which at–let’s face it–conservatives excel.

    Donston is right. Conservative men are more likely to be on the down low and in the closet. Technically that is bi. Liberal gay men then to think bi is a cop out. Or a phase. Someone should do a study.

    • Donston

      A willingness to fvck around with anyone isn’t “technically bi” either, especially if it’s mainly or entirely driven by internalized homophobia or a desire to retain some sense of hetero-normalcy. It’s mere “bi behaving”. I’m a “Liberal man” (for the most part) with some bisexuality to my orientation, though I don’t identify as bi. I don’t see bisexual as a “cop out” so much as something that isn’t specific enough to represent my orientation and definitely not my “lifestyle”. And I feel “bisexual” is a term best for people who have real and substantial sexual attraction to and passion for men and women and who have the ability to love and commit to and be truly comfortable and happy in a romantic relationship with either a man or woman. Otherwise, the identify is typically driven by messiness.

      Sexual behavior and “lifestyle” driven by self-hate or by sociology isn’t an orientation. And sometimes being somewhat turned on by random body parts or by femininity or masculinity is a completely different mentality than having substantial attraction to and passion for the entirety of an (adult) gender. Then there’s being “open-minded” enough to date and/or have sex outside your orientation. Then there’s misogyny or misandry that helps sway behaviors sometimes. Then there’s megalomania driven behaviors. All of these are very different. Yet, for some it’s all conveniently “bisexual”.

      The whole “bi movement” needs some redirection as does much of the lgbt “movement”. But even redirection won’t help self-hating people.

  • Pepe

    I’m sorry, but is the point of this article to sex shame this guy?
    I don’t understand how people are getting a kick out of “outing” one of Trump’s advisors
    Maybe it’ll prove to the batshit right wingers that homosexuality and bisexuality exist even in their world.. but mostly I just feel like this is sex shaming..

    • Donston

      If you actually did your research about this man (or just read most of the article) you’d know this article isn’t “outing” anyone. He already said the ads from years ago were real. Also, he is participating in a documentary and apparently in that doc he says that he is a “try-sexual”. So, no one is outing him. He is using his downfall, “mysterious” orientation and outlandish takes to get attention, make money and put himself back in the spotlight as he’s done multiple times before. So, your POV is really off.

      Stone is nothing more than a megalomaniac, attention-starving, self-hating, crazy queen. And everyone knows this already. There’s no need to “protect” him.

    • BitterOldQueen

      I like to think that this is more along the lines of hypocrisy-shaming. So many conservatives spout hateful nastiness about homosexuality, and/or support those who say similar or worse things. It’s good to catch them publicly displaying their sanctimonious duplicity.

  • DCguy

    This guy just testified to the Congressional committee investigating Russia, and refused to answer multiple questions. They are now going to subpoena him to force him to answer.

    While on the Trump campaign not only did he brad that he had a direct line to the type people who hacked the DNC, he also predicted that Hillary’s staffers e-mails were going to leak before anybody knew they were hacked.

    But yeah, lets talk about the fact he likes to watch his wife get banged.

    • Donston

      That’s pretty much what I’m saying, though this is Queerty, so you know where the focus will be. He is a man who will do anything to feel powerful. So, of course, he’ll fvck anything and watch anything get fvcked. The fact that he is a political leech, a traitor to his country and has committed not just rumored illegalities for political gain needs to always be the focus when it comes to this chump.

    • Kangol

      He’s a long-time Republican dirty trickster, going back to the Nixon era. A very nasty character, regardless of his sexual interests. And he may have helped bring down Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who was one of the rare figures to strike fear in the hearts of the greedy Wall Streeters who nearly cratered both the US and global economies. Google “Roger Stone Eliot Spitzer sex scandal.” No one has ever explained how or why George W. Bush’s Department of Homeland Security allegedly got involved in that case.

  • scooter12

    Who cares what he sleeps with..the man is a traitor who committed treason and has a giant tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back…man is a disgusting, lying human being.

  • Jaxton

    Conservatives are more accepting of male bisexuality than are liberals.

    Liberals tend to think that male bisexuality is gross whereas female bisexuality is ‘hot’. They’re hypocrites.

    • whatsaywhat

      And Liberals care more about their sky friend Jesus than the satan worshipping Conservatives ! How fun i can play this game too!
