Trump Accuses Joe Scarborough Of Murder

President Trump suggested in a morning tweet that MSNBC's Joe Scarborough may have murdered his former intern.

One of President Trump's numerous tweets Wednesday morning appeared to accuse MSNBC's Joe Scarborough of murder, referencing the death of Scarborough's intern in 2001, while he was a Republican congressman in Florida.

Newsweek reports that there was no proof Scarborough was in any way related to the death, which was ruled an accident.

[Intern Lori] Klausutis, 28, was found behind a desk by two people visiting the congressman’s district office in July of 2001. An autopsy report found that she had been feeling unwell, and heart problems caused her to fall on her desk and hit her head. The medical examiner did not find signs of foul play. Scarborough announced his resignation months prior to her death, just five months into his fourth term, saying he wanted to spend more time with his children.

Trump's tweet came in response to NBC's announcement that Today host Matt Lauer had been fired for sexual misconduct.

Trump has been a vocal critic of many famous men accused of sexual harassment, like Lauer and Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.), but has been strangely supportive of Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, despite the many allegations he faces.
