GQ’s politics Keith Olbermann suggested Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey suspend Stone over his attack on Lemon.

“Hey @jack, how is @RogerJStoneJr’s account not suspended after this public, homophobic attack?,” tweeted Olbermann.

Political operative Arthur Schwartz called out Twitter’s hypocrisy for banning Stone and not Olbermann.

“Twitter banned Roger Stone after he used some foul language & verbally attacked a CNN anchor. But this genius is still around. Weird,” tweeted Schwartz.

WikiLeaks boss Julian Assange took issue with Twitter banning Stone, while copious users still use the platform without punishment after calling for his and Snowden’s assassination.

“Twitter has suspended @RogerJStoneJr after saying CNN hosts are ‘lying’ ‘cocksuckers’ pic.twitter.com/O9n7gW7pfa However, explicit calls for my (and Snowden’s) assassination are just fine,” tweeted Assange.

During the 2016 presidential election, WikiLeaks tweeted a story about Hillary Clinton musing about assassinating Assange with a weaponized drone.

Washington Examiner reported:

WikiLeaks tweeted a story Monday claiming Hillary Clinton asked in 2010 whether it would be possible to kill the group’s founder, Julian Assange, using a drone strike.

True Pundit reported Sunday that State Department officials revealed that Clinton asked, “Can’t we just drone this guy” at a Nov. 23, 2010, meeting with other officials. The report said Clinton’s suggestion was met with laughter, but also said Clinton was clearly “fuming” at WikiLeaks’ continued leaking of confidential State Department cables that she had signed.

“Hillary Clinton on Assange “Can’t we just drone this guy,”” tweeted WikiLeaks.
