Trump Suggests Joe Scarborough Murdered His Intern. Joe’s Pro-Trump Brother Just Fired Back.

George Scarborough, the brother of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough and a supporter of President Trump, said Trump “crossed the line” with his “#FakeNews” tweet calling for an investigation into a conspiracy theory involving a staffer for then-congressman Joe Scarborough (R-FL) who was found dead in his office in 2001.

“Outrageous reference re @JoeNBC where @potus @realDonaldTrump just crossed the line with me,” George Scarborough tweeted Wednesday morning.

“I need to see a public apology to my brother Joe or else he has lost my support for good … which is saying a ton given all the support I’ve shown him in past 2 years.”

George Scarborough said Trump’s tweet gives him “serious pause regarding” Trump’s “‘news’ sources.”

He said if Trump doesn’t apologize to his brother Joe, then the president will lose his “public support & my vote in the next election.”

“No [one] is deserving of lies being told about them in the public domain where idiots believe everything they see on social media,” he tweeted.

“For all the Haters blasting me for defending my brother … still [Trump] went too far w/me w/tweet. Done,” he also wrote.

“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?” Trump tweeted.

“And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”

When Scarborough was a Republican congressman for Florida, his intern, Lori Klausutis, was found dead behind a desk by two people visiting the congressman’s district office in July of 2001.

Police immediately ruled out foul play and a subsequent autopsy revealed that she suffered from an undiagnosed heart condition.

A local medical examiner ruled the death an accident, saying Klausutis had collapsed and hit her head on the side of a desk. The head trauma caused a fatal blood clot.

These facts did not stop Trump from insinuating that Scarborough murdered his former intern.

“Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets,” Scarborough responded to the President’s deranged tweet.

“He is not well,” he added.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Scarborough, dubbing him “Psycho Joe,” and has insulted his MSNBC co-host, Mika Brzezinski.

In response to Trump’s Wednesday tweet, Conan O’Brien’s sidekick Andy Richter tweeted: “Careful, now. While we all focus on Matt Lauer & Trump insinuating that another tv host is a murderer, the GOP Congress is gonna keep trying to ruin the economy Kansas-style.”
