Trump Revives Suggestion Joe Scarborough Is a Killer, Calls on Comcast to Investigate ‘Cold Case’

President Donald Trump on Monday called for Comcast to investigate Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough for what he called a ‘cold case’. The President was almost certainly referring to his own suggestion that the MSNBC personality murdered an intern.

“‘Concast’ should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough,” Trump tweeted.

“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.”

He added the hashtag #OPENJOECOLDCASE. Comcast owns NBC and MSNBC.

In 2017, Trump suggested that Scarborough was responsible for the death of an intern who worked for him when he was a congressman in 2001. Lori Klausutis, who has then 28, was found dead in Scarborough’s office. No signs of foul play were found and there is no evidence that Scarborough was involved with her death.

However, Trump suggested that NBC should investigate Scarborough over the matter following the firing of Matt Lauer.

“And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!” he tweeted.

Scarborough has dismissed the suggestion from Trump on air several times.
