President Trump on Monday took a shot at MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough – calling for “Concast” to probe him for a cold case involving the accidental death of an intern in his congressional office in 2001.
“‘Concast’ should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough,” the president said, referring to NBC News’ parent company Comcast, in a tweet shortly after the “Morning Joe” host reported bad polling news for Trump.
“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! #OPENJOECOLDCASE,” Trump added.
The president appeared to be referring to the case of Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old intern who was found dead in Scarborough’s Fort Walton Beach office in Florida when he was a congressman.
The medical examiner ruled the death accidental, saying Klausutis had passed out because of an undiagnosed heart condition and hit her head on a desk.
No evidence has ever been found linking Scarborough to her death.
Scarborough reported on polls showing that Trump is losing to Joe Biden by six points nationally, and is even tied with the former veep in the formerly deep-red state of Texas.
The host also lambasted the president over his response to the coronavirus pandemic as he said during a virtual town hall Sunday night that the death toll could reach 100,000, up from the 60,000 to 70,000 he predicted earlier.
“He, again, said it was going to be zero, it was 11 to zero, 15 to five,” Scarborough said, according to Raw Story.
“Then he said it was going to magically go away in April, when things warmed up, it’d be gone in April. Then, of course, more Americans died in April of this pandemic that the president said wasn’t going to affect us. [He] said the media is, yeah, overhyping it, it’s a hoax.”
The president also targeted Scarborough late last month when he said he turned to his show just to confirm that his longtime critic was “nuts.”
“Such hatred and contempt! I used to do his show all the time before the 2016 election, then cut him off,” the president said in a tweet. “Wasn’t worth the effort, his mind is shot!”
