Crimes from the past are constantly being dredged up by the Internet. As the media reels from Matt Lauer’s surprise firing, President Trump darkly hinted that other pundits may be on the chopping block as well. Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough was mentioned specifically.
“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?” Trump tweeted.
“And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”
Trump is referencing the bizarre 2001 death of a staffer working in Scarborough’s office. The 28-year-old woman was found dead on the floor, the medical examiner determined that she most likely collapsed and hit her head on the edge of the desk.
Scarborough’s brother George was disgusted by Trump’s insinuation.
“Outrageous reference re @JoeNBC where @potus @realDonaldTrump just crossed the line with me,” George Scarborough tweeted Wednesday morning.
“I need to see a public apology to my brother Joe or else he has lost my support for good … which is saying a ton given all the support I’ve shown him in past 2 years.”
Whatever happens, the truth is going to come out. If Scarborough is innocent, he should easily be able to prove it. Woe be to him if he’s guilty. Now that Trump has renewed suspicions, people won’t allow the story to drop until they’re satisfied that they have all the answers.
George insists that his brother is innocent.
“No [one] is deserving of lies being told about them in the public domain where idiots believe everything they see on social media,” he tweeted.
“For all the Haters blasting me for defending my brother … still [Trump] went too far w/me w/tweet. Done.”
