President Donald Trump suggested that MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough is a murderer on Tuesday.

Trump erupted on Twitter after Scarborough slammed his administration’s response to the coronavirus on his show.

The president insinuated in a tweet that Scarborough, a former member of the House of Representatives, was responsible for the accidental death of one of his former congressional intern Lori Klausutis, 28, in 2001. Klausutis had worked for the then-Congressman while he was a Republican representative for Florida’s 1st Congressional District. She was found dead in his Fort Walton district office.


Klausutis’ autopsy revealed that she had an undiagnosed heart condition, and a coroner concluded that she passed out and hit her head while she fell.

The coroner ruled that there was no evidence of foul play, and Scarborough was in Washington at the time of her death.

Trump previously has pushed the decades’ old conspiracy theory.

He tweeted last Monday that the “Concast,” the president’s nickname for Comcast owner of MSNBC, “should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough.”
