President Donald Trump is wasting little time this week going after his left-wing enemies in the media.
The president took to Twitter on Monday and blasted MSNBC’s host Joe Scarborough regarding the mysterious death of a 28-year-old who previously served as one of his interns.
“‘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,” Trump wrote.

Lori Klausutis served as an intern for Scarborough when he was a GOP lawmaker representing Florida’s 1st District from 1995 to 2001.
She was found dead in Scarborough’s district office in Okaloosa County, Florida, in July 2001.
Her death was ruled accidental, and the medical examiner concluded that she had an abnormal heart rhythm. No foul play was reportedly suspected.
The case continues to be brought up because many find it suspicious that a 28-year-old fell in an office, hit her head, and then died.
Here’s more from the Washington Examiner:
Klausutis had told a co-worker and a mail carrier she wasn’t feeling well the day before she died.
Two people who were looking for help with an immigration case found Klausutis the morning of July 20, 2001.
The medical examiner said the woman had an abnormal heart rhythm and lost consciousness. She fell and hit her head on a desk, which ultimately led to her death.
Scarborough has vehemently denied any involvement in her death. In a letter to Variety Fair in 2005, the former congressman and television host said he had only met Klausutis three times and was never alone with her.
He also denied he resigned from Congress because of her death, as he announced his resignation in May 2001, and she died months later.
Perhaps Trump made the comment about the case because Scarborough and his wife and co-host, Mika Brzezinski, continue to go after him almost daily.
A few weeks ago, the duo bizarrely alleged that Trump is only pushing the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a possibly effective treatment for coronavirus because of a “financial tie.”
“A lot of people would say, follow the money,” she said. “There’s got to be some sort of financial tie to someone somewhere that has the president pushing this repeatedly.”
Scarborough questioned why cable news outlets were still broadcasting the near-daily White House coronavirus task force briefings at which the president promotes the “unproven drug.”
Mika made arguably the most explosive accusation yet against Trump regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and no one else in the media held her accountable or demanded that she offer any evidence to support her claim.
