AceShowbiz - President Donald Trump shares a conspiracy theory about MSNBC's Joe Scarborough. On Tuesday, May 12, POTUS wrote to his followers a tweet which suggested that 'Psycho Joe Scarborough' might have committed murder.
"When will they open a Cold Case on the Psycho Joe Scarborough matter in Florida. Did he get away with murder? Some people think so," so the TV star-turned-president said following a segment on the network's "Morning Joe" talk show in which he and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, discussed the White House's coronavirus response. "Why did he leave Congress so quietly and quickly? Isn't it obvious? What's happening now? A total nut job!"
It is highly likely that Trump was referring to the death of Lori Klausutis, who worked as a staffer in Scarborough's Fort Walton Beach, Florida, back in 2001. As her autopsy revealed she had an undiagnosed heart condition, a coroner concluded she died after passing out and hitting her head in a fall. A coroner said that she was not struck by another person. Additionally, Scarborough was in Washington at the time of her death.
Scarborough responded to the tweet in real time after being told about the president's tweet. "Why don't you turn off the television, and why don't you start working, okay?" he said. He continued saying, "You do your job, we'll do ours, and America will be much better off for that. Just go. Turn off the TV, Donald."
The back-and-forth between Trump and Scarborough also happened last week after the former tweeted that " 'Concast' should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough."
That time, Scarborough responded by saying that the accusation was "extraordinarily cruel," adding that he brought attention to a conspiracy theory that's "lived in the gutters of the internet for some time now." The TV host went on to say, "You, once again, drag a family through this and make them relive it again. ... As if losing a loved one the first time isn't enough. You don't understand the pain you cause to families who've already lost a loved one. Not me."
