From Roger Stone - Trump's advisor, comes this gem on teh twitters
Note that while Stone left the Trump campaign last year, he is still deeply connected to Trump, and his business-partner of 30 years (Paul Manafort) is now Trump's campaign manager.

At this stage, most political handbooks would say "Distance yourself from Stone", "Disavow his words", etc., but this is Trump we are talking about.  As Ben Mathis-Lilly puts it
maybe Trump won't try to distance himself from Stone. Maybe this is the response to Khizr Khan that Trump has decided to go with. At this point, would that really be all that surprising?
