‘Psycho’ Joe Scarborough Claims That Trump ‘Spiraled Into a Rage’ After Critical Tweet Calling Him ‘Nuts’

This morning, President Trump tweeted out about MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. He called Scarborough “psycho Joe Scarborough” while saying that he knows “him and Crazy Mika well” and that he “used them beautifully in the last Election, dumped them nicely, and will state on the record that” Scarborough is “nuts.”

“Concast” should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough. 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

Scarborough responded by saying that the President “spiraled into a rage” and he dismissed accusations regarding the “Florida cold case” as a “conspiracy theory.”

According to the Hill, Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old intern for the commentator when he was a GOP congressman representing a district in Florida.

Klausutis died in 2001 in Scarborough’s district office. A local medical examiner ruled the death an accident, saying Klausutis had collapsed and hit her head on the side of a desk. She had an undiagnosed heart condition, according to the medical examiner, and the head trauma caused a fatal blood clot.

Scarborough and Brzezinski were married in 2018 and he is now on his third marriage. Now deceased Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings officiated that wedding.

An MSNBC spokesperson released a statement on the matter by saying, “Attempts to intimidate and bully the free press, including through the bizarre peddling of fringe conspiracy theories, will not prevent Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski or any of MSNBC’s journalists or analysts from holding power to account. We’ll continue to accurately and thoroughly report on the White House’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic.”

Scarborough has changed his Twitter bio to a quote that former President George W. Bush made in the video he released on Saturday, “We rise or fall together, and we are determined to rise.” He referenced that speech in his response to President Trump’s tweet as well.
