As the pandemic rages and 81k Americans die, Trump accuses Joe Scarborough of murder 19 years ago

President Donald Trump accused MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough of murder — and urged authorities to open a cold case investigation.

Trump has lobbed allegations against the “Morning Joe” host, a former friend turned daily critic, related to the death of one of his congressional staffers in 2001, including as recently as last week.

<...>

An autopsy showed that Lori Klausutis, who worked in Scarborough’s Fort Walton Beach congressional office, collapsed due to an undiagnosed heart condition and suffered a fatal blow to the head as she fell.

Scarborough reacted to the president’s tweet moments later on the air, asking Trump — a regular viewer of the show he claims to hate — to turn off the television and get to work on the coronavirus.

“Why don’t you stop tweeting?” Scarborough said. “Why don’t you turn off the television, and why don’t you start working, okay? You do your job, we’ll do ours. America will be much better off for that. Just go, turn off the TV, Donald.”

2. And it was wrong here too over the years

 

It's disgusting the way that people build these kinds of tales out of nothing, like they did with Seth Rich.

Are her parents and husband paid off, or just stupid and uncaring?

And before someone starts with the "Oh, that never happened here" thing, here are search results specific to the phrase "dead intern Joe" on DU:

Take a look through there, and don't tell me "Oh, those were trolls who are all gone n
ow."

5. It's long been one of our more problematic areas here over the years.

It was our Seth Rich before there was that tragedy.

11. Um, advising Trump to work is decidedly NOT a good idea.

He regards his "job" and stripping the United States for self-enrichment.

The more he's in a coma, TV generated or otherwise, the better the it will be for the United States, and indeed, the world.

12. It's typical Facebook fodder.

This has been circulating since about 1998, or certainly by 2000. It's the kind of thing that pervades so-called *social* media: an allegation or hint of wrongdoing that can't be proved or disproved, and it takes just a kernel of information to start something like this going. Frankly, it's not that dissimilar to the Bill Clinton + Monica Lewenski thing. Did those two have a bit of sexual play going in the WH? Sure. But the rethugs morphed it into an impeachment by equating it to Clinton stealing the Orphans & Widows Fund or passing secrets to the Russians -- back in the day when they all hated/feared the Russians. tRump is trying to do the same thing here. Scarborough DID have a sexual thing going on with one of his interns or congressional aids. The exposure of that pecadillo had him drop out of congress. But, he was investigated - or his office was - by Florida police at the time. (Yes, I know. It was Florida).

15. Neat trick that, Joe was in D.C. when she died in FL, did he hire a hitman?

She died on a Thurs, was found on Fri, Joe works in Washington DC during the week and flies home for weekends.

Medical examiner must have been paid off too, he said "absolutely no evidence of foul play"

16. Oh, just one more thing...

 



The last time your friend gave you a ride on his private jet to Florida, you said that you left DC at just after five, and were at a fundraising dinner a little after eight; so that was about three hours. If your friend was in a hurry, could it go faster than that?
