President Donald Trump reiterated his conspiracy theory on Sunday, suggesting that Morning Scar co-host Joe Scarborough is responsible for the deaths of Lori Klausutis who worked for him while in Congress.
Much interest in this story about Psycho Joe Scarborough. So a young marathoner happened to pass out in his office, hit her head on his desk, and died? the president tweeted Sunday morning.
His tweet was also accompanied by a link to a story from the pro-Trump site True Pundit, entitled, “FLASHBACK: Evidence Shows Foul Play Likely in Scarborough Aide’s Suspicious Death in His Congressional Office.”
Trump encouraged his followers to read the True Pundit story and added, “I would think this story is much more than that? An affair? What about the so-called researcher? ‘

The True Pundit article claims that “the fainting is wrong.”
“How likely is it that an apparently healthy woman, who ran marathons, would pass out and hit her head on a desk in a way that would cause death? It is quite unlikely, according to our research, ‘wrote the author of the story.
Trump’s tweet on Sunday was the fifth time this month that President has accused Scarborough of murdering 28-year-old Klausutis.
Lori Klausutis (pictured) did an internship at the Scarborough Convention Bureau in Florida. She died in the office in 2001 after falling and hitting her head
Klausutis did an internship for Scarborough at his convention office in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
Before hosting cable news, Scarborough was a member of the Republican House and represented Florida’s first congressional district.
She died in the office in 2001 after falling and banging her head. Doctors ruled that her death was an accident due to an undiagnosed heart rhythm disorder.
But a conspiracy theory that she had been romantically involved with Scarborough and that her death was not an accident has been repeatedly fueled and sparked by Trump in recent weeks.
Scarborough was out of the office at the time of Klausutis’ death and the The Washington Post gave the claim four Pinocchios, the worst rating.
“A blow to the head? Found a body under his desk? Suddenly leaving Congress? Trump tweeted on Saturday.
“Great topic of discussion in Florida … and he’s a crazy job (with bad reviews). Keep digging, use forensic geniuses! ‘
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted: “Guys like low-rated psycho Joe Scarborough are allowed to take to the streets? Open cold case! ‘
Trump compared Scarborough in comparison to his disgraceful long-term fixer Roger Stone.
Trump’s tweet on Sunday was the fifth time this month that President Scarborough accused of killing Klausutis. This tweet was shared by the President on Saturday
Trump’s allegations led to Scarborough’s wife Mika Brzezinski beating him and calling the president ‘sick’ and demanding Twitter remove him
Last Tuesday – although Trump often claims he doesn’t watch Morning Joe or MSNBC in general – it took Scarborough 20 minutes to attack him before launching a Twitter attack on Scarborough calling him a killer.
“When will they open a Cold Case on the Psycho Joe Scarborough Florida issue,” Trump wondered. “Did he get away with murder? Some people think so. Why did he leave Congress so quietly and quickly? Is not it clear? What happens now? A total crazy job! ‘
He had tweeted in similar terms a week earlier, prompting the broadcaster to suggest that he should “rest.”
Trump’s tweets about Scarborough angered his wife and co-host Mika Brzezinski, who tore the president on the air on Wednesday at the end of their show.
“Donald, you’re sick,” said Brzezinski. “You really are a cruel, sick, disgusting person. And you can keep tweeting about Joe, but you just hurt other people, and of course you hurt yourself. ‘
Brzezinski demanded that Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO, take action and remove Trump from the platform.
“Twitter, you shouldn’t allow this and you should delete these tweets and you should be ashamed of yourself,” she said.
“You hear from me about this, because this is BS.”
Trump compared Scarborough to his old friend and advisor, Roger Stone (right), who was convicted and sentenced to prison. Stone’s appearance on the Fox Business Network last week prompted Trump to repeat the conspiracy theory about Scarborough
Previous attack: Two weeks ago, Trump tweeted ‘ColdCaseJoe!’ in response to an article describing the MSNBC host’s apology after tweeting a modified video of Vice President Mike Pence and spitting on Twitter with Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz
Brzezinski also slammed Trump for repeating the conspiracy theory and reminding the Klausutis family of their lover’s death.
“To get this family through this, to get her husband through this, to do this, because you’re mad at Joe, because Joe got you again today,” said Brzezinski.
Because he speaks the truth, and he speaks clearly about your lack of interest, and empathy for others, and your lack of ability to deal with this massive human catastrophe, the fact that you made it worse and you did it every day worse. ‘
After Wednesday’s MSNBC broadcast, Brzezinski revealed on Twitter that she and Dorsey would have a conversation.
She tweeted she would call Dorsey and Sean Edgett, Twitter’s general counsel.
“I will contact the head of Twitter about their policies being violated by President Trump every day,” she wrote. In another, she wrote, “@twitter needs to know why trump isn’t forbidden?”
She later tweeted that Dorsey and the company’s business adviser would speak to her. Dorsey has never before publicly responded to calls to ban Trump from the platform.
Trump also spent his Sunday morning firing several tweets about the corona virus, mail in ballots, and former Rep Allen West
Trump also claimed that this year’s presidential election will be “the biggest election in history”
Twitter’s treatment of Trump has become a lightning rod for criticism of the platform and a dilemma for Dorsey and his executives.
Complaints have been filed about a series of tweets that appear to violate fake news, insults and harassment policies.
But Twitter introduced a “public interest waiver” that applies to political leaders and allows their tweets to go beyond its policies.
It also imposed restrictions on deceptively edited material, with a Trump tweet that went wrong last month – to the ire of its supporters.
Trump also spent his Sunday morning firing several tweets about the coronavirus, ballot mail, and former Rep Allen West, who suffered a concussion after a motorcycle accident in Texas.
In a tweet, the President wrote about COVID-19 and said, “Cases, numbers, and deaths are declining across the country!”
Trump also claimed that this year’s presidential election will be “the biggest election in history.”
