File this one under the truth is stranger than fiction category because Snopes has confirmed that Donald Trump's friend and political consultant Roger Stone indeed has a large Richard Nixon tattoo squarely on his back.
When a photograph first surfaced of the shirtless 68-year-old Stone showing off his Nixon tattoo, most people assumed it must be a Photoshop job. But no, the self-described "dirty trickster" who says he is proud of helping to get his friend Donald Trump into the White House, still shows his Nixon tattoo off with pride, despite the fact that he is now under investigation in a matter that is starting to feel like Watergate deja vu.
The New York Times says that Stone and Trump share a mutual mentor, the McCarthy-era fixer Roy Cohn, and the two men have remained in lockstep about their denial that anyone in the Trump administration has anything to do with Russia.
Stone has been emphatic with this assertion.
"There is still not an iota of proof that anyone on the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians."
