Roger Stone appeared to break ranks with his longtime friend Donald Trump after Joe Biden's campaign used an online video service to pay him to film a bizarre pep talk for the Democrat before the final presidential debate.
Rob Flaherty, the digital director for the Biden campaign, shared Stone's video on Twitter on Thursday night, writing: 'Since you can pay Trump advisors to say anything you want them to on the internet, we asked Roger Stone [to] give a pep talk to ol' Joey ahead of tonight's debate.
Stone recorded the video via Cameo, a service that allows people to pay celebrities to send them personalized messages.
It is unknown whether Stone knew the message was intended for Biden, as he refers to the recipient as 'Joey' throughout.
In the 39-second video, Stone urges Biden to attack his critics - and offers a crude bathroom joke for him to use.
