After spending the night promoting a white supremacist who was convicted of a hate crime in the U.K., Donald Trump used his Twitter account to launch a conspiracy theory in order to falsely accuse MSNBC host Joe Scarborough of murder.
“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!”

The death of Lori Klausutis is not a ‘mystery’ as Trump suggested. Her death was ruled as an accident by a local medical examiner who also determined that she had an undiagnosed heart condition. Klausutis collapsed, then hit her head, which resulted in a fatal blood clot. Authorities immediately said that her death was not suspicious and ruled out any signs of foul play.

The “Morning Joe” host tweeted that Trump is “not well.”
“Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets,” Scarborough wrote. “He is not well.”

A so-called president calling for an investigation into a death which has already been determined to be an accident is unprecedented. Trump should never use the word ‘investigation’ since his administration is plagued with scandals.
Lock him up in a psych ward!
