With Roger Stone as a defendant, you have to expect some funny things going on in his circus case. Stone’s latest: he’s not Kim Kardashian.
I never thought I would confuse those two, but we are talking Roger Stone here.
On Friday, Stone’s lawyers argued just that, arguing against the gag order which Stone has promised to appeal if there one. His lawyers argued that Stone doesn’t have the celebrity that Kardashian has in order to influence the jury pool.
“While Roger Stone may be familiar to those who closely follow American politics, he is hardly ubiquitous in the larger landscape of popular consciousness,” his lawyers wrote. “Kim Kardashian has 59.5 million followers on Twitter…
“By contrast,” his lawyers continued, “Roger Stone has no Twitter account at all and, thus has no Twitter followers. On Instagram, Kim Kardashian has 126 million followers. Roger Stone’s Instagram following amounts to 39 thousand subscribers.”
Of course, a social media following has nothing to do with Stone’s interviews on major networks.
