Trump just accused a talk show host of possibly being a murderer - seriously
President Donald Trump just suggested very openly and casually that MSNBC's Joe Scarborough had committed murder on Tuesday.
Here was what Trump said which caused all the commotion:
“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,” Trump wrote. “Why did he leave Congress so quietly and quickly? Isn’t it obvious? What’s happening now? A total nut job!”
Trump must have been watching his show and heard something he didn't like which prompted the comments. The insane response prompted Scarborough to tell the president on live television to stop watching him "for the sake of America."
“For your sake, as I’ve been saying for years — Donald, for your sake, and for the sake of America, you need to stop watching our show, OK? It’s not good for you. I think that might be why you go out and, like — you’re distracted. You’re tweeting so much,” Scarborough said.
“Why don’t you turn off the television, and why don’t you start working, OK?” he continued. “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 Associated Press has already covered this conspiracy theory surrounding the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, who worked for Scarborough's Fort Walton Beach congressional office then. Not only was he in Washington at the time of her death, but an autopsy revealed she had an undiagnosed heart condition. The coroner concluded that she simply passed out and hit her head as she fell.
Not only that but Scarborough announced he was leaving Congress a full month before her death, so Trump's curiosity there doesn't have any merit either. It's likely this is the only thing Trump can talk about to distract from whatever the MSNBC host was saying about him, which was probably not very flattering to him or his administration.
