Responding to a ‘Morning Joe’ segment on his declining approval rating, President Donald Trump launched a furious tweet slamming MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski as “psycho” and “crazy.”
“‘Concast’ should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough,” Trump ranted on Twitter. “I know him and Crazy Mika well, used them beautifully in the last Election, dumped them nicely, and will state on the record that he is ‘nuts’. Besides, bad ratings!”
The “Florida Cold Case” that Trump mentions is likely a reference to Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old intern who was found dead in Scarborough’s office in 2001 back when he was still a Florida congressman.
After an autopsy, the medical examiner concluded that Klausutis had suffered from heart problems that caused her to faint and fatally hit her head on a desk, where she was found dead hours later. Both police and the medical examiner said they found no evidence of foul play, or that Klausutis’ death was a suicide. There has never been any evidence linking Scarborough to her death.
Trump’s latest attack on Scarborough came after the MSNBC host reported on polls showing that the president is losing to former Vice President Joe Biden by six points nationally.
