President Trump kicked off yet another new week in the ongoing coronavirus crisis by throwing insulting conspiracy theories at his media enemies, this taking aim at MSNBC’s conservative ex-Republican host Joe Scarborough.
“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

After Joe Scarborough and his now-wife Mika Brezinski had a public falling out with their former friend Donald Trump after criticizing him on the air, Trump began to publicly suggest that there was foul play involved in the 2001 death of one of Scarborough’s aides while he was a Florida Congressman.
Medical examiners have concluded that 28-year-old Lori Klausutis died in Scarborough’s office after an abnormal heart rhythm caused her to lose consciousness and she tragically struck her head on a desk.
But Trump has clung to the story ever since and enjoys taunting Scarborough with the accusation.
He is now appearing to demand Comcast open a “cold case” into the matter, which is odd because media conglomerates usually do not conduct criminal investigations.
Trump appeared to be responding to Mika and Joe’s discussion of polls that showed Trump losing to presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in a slew of southern states, including Texas.
The president can send out all the insulting conspiracy tweets he wants, but all they accomplish is digging him into a deeper hole as the coronavirus crisis grows around him.
