Roger Stone: Priebus's 'purge' of Flynn is 'Pearl Harbor' for Trump loyalists

President Trump adviser Roger Stone tweeted Tuesday that the "purge" of former national security advisor Michael Flynn is "Pearl Harbor" for Trump loyalists.

Stone blamed White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for Flynn's resignation after just 24 days on the job.

"Reince's purge of Flynn a 'Pearl Harbor' for Trump loyalists. Hope the midget is ready to rumble," wrote Stone.

Stone's tweet comes as Breitbart News, the populist right-wing website once led by President Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, published a scathing report on Tuesday stating that Priebus was responsible for the administration's rocky start while speculating that his future in the administration may also be short.

Trump named retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg as acting national security adviser following Flynn's resignation. Kellogg previously served as Flynn’s chief of staff on the National Security Council.
