Roger Stone dances to a Trump rap at CPAC about 'patriots knocking on Capitol', Internet says 'can't unsee that'
Longtime Donald Trump loyalist and convicted felon Roger Stone became an internet sensation on February 27. A video of him dancing to a rap song about the 45th president outside the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, went viral on Twitter as most of the people reacted with disgust and barf emojis.
A number of people filmed Stone shaking a leg on the street alongside an unidentified hip-hop artist who rapped about former president Trump winning the 2020 election. The pair drew people's attention as they performed in front of a monster truck parked outside the venue. The vehicle featured Trump's face photoshopped on Sylvester Stallone's body from the 'Rambo' movie with the American flag in the backdrop. The notorious GOP political operative played the role of a backup dancer wearing a tie, a shirt with French cuffs and sunglasses.
"Trump 2021, yeah he had it in the bag. I just got a call from General Flynn, yeah he told me the facts. Democrats you gonna tell me how you feelin' about that," the rapper sang. "Who won. Trump won. Who Won. Trump Won! Watermark the baddest, 45 the chosen one. Fed did a sweep. Patriots be pulling up, knocking on the Capitol," he added. At the end of the song, Stone slammed the critics who had earlier claimed that he can't dance before raising both hands above his head for the Nixon double-V salute — a gesture he has often made in the past.
The video drew mostly negative reactions on social media. "I just threw up a little in my mouth after seeing this," one of the users said, while another wrote, "MY EYES!!!! THEY BURN!!!" A third wrote, "Dancing with the devil." The next commented, "Seems more like a county fair." One more remarked, "I can’t unsee that." Another tweeted, "Adding to my list of things I can never unsee."
Another wrote, "Dancing for food. Has it come to this?" A person reacted with, "He’s so happy he is not in jail." One person said, "I can vomit without unmuting this." Another quipped, "The circus acts are arriving." One more said, "Was this part of his pardon deal...."

On December 23, Trump pardoned Stone after he was sentenced to 40 months in prison on seven counts of witness tampering, lying to Congress and obstructing the inquiry by the House into the ex-POTUS' campaign's possible ties to Russia. Months before the pardon, Trump had commuted Stone's sentence in July. Stone told Fox News at CPAC that he would back Trump if the former president launches another presidential bid for 2024.
"If he ran again I would certainly support him, but four years is a very long time. What will happen now based on history is the Democrats and academia and the media will seek to bury his great accomplishments," he said. "The American people need to be reminded that we had the greatest jobs boom in American history, for example, under President Trump, that we rebuilt our military strength, that we negotiated much, much better trade deals — so I favor some kind of Trump Legacy Project to remind the people of how much this man accomplished with the opposition of elite leadership of both parties."
