Whatever you think of “Morning Joe” Scarborough as a cable news host, we all know that he certainly didn’t murder anyone. Yet Donald Trump keeps abusing his position as President of the United States to promote an insane lie about Scarborough murdering his former intern, and demanding that Scarborough be criminally investigated for this phony allegation.
Members of Trump’s own party have publicly asked him to stop pushing this lie. The Wall Street Journal has called on Trump to stop. The deceased woman’s husband has asked Twitter to delete Trump’s tweets about it. Yet Trump just keeps going, because his deranged mind only cares about getting revenge against his perceived enemies.
This evening, Joe Scarborough posted the perfect response to Trump’s insanity:
As much as I have appreciated the kindness shown by old friends and colleagues today, I assure you that my family is incredibly blessed and asks only that you pray for Lori’s family tonight. May God also soften the hearts of those who continue to slander this good woman’s memory.
