Trump Hints That Joe Scarborough Murdered an Intern
“When a guest, Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos, mentioned the scandal on air in 2011, he was banned from appearing on MSNBC again. Trump’s accusatory tweet was in response to the announcement this morning that NBC had fired longtime host of NBC's Today, Matt Lauer, for inappropriate sexual conduct following a Monday-night complaint. 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. Scarborough has been the co-host of MSNBC's Morning Joe since 2007.
Although a Republican, he has often butted heads with the current Republican president. He penned an op-ed for The Washington Post during the campaign calling for his party to dump Trump, and President Trump has frequently retaliated since then. He's called Scarborough "Psycho Joe," and has insulted his co-host, Mika Brzezinski, as well.
It's not the first time Trump has drawn attention to a conspiracy theory via social media or participated in creating one. His latest, according to The New York Times, is his suggestion to advisers that the Access Hollywood tapes in which he made vulgar sexual comments about women were fake. He famously asked for President Barack Obama to present his birth certificate and prove he was American-born, but backtracked on that claim in 2016.
Lately, according to the Times, Trump has been telling advisers he thinks Obama's birth certificate is a fake. Just before his Scarborough tweet, Trump retweeted several violent videos on Wednesday morning from a sketchy account known for its anti-Muslim rhetoric. One was titled “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!”
