The Tampa Bay Times reports:
President Donald Trump seized on NBC’s firing of Matt Lauer and took a shot at Joe Scarborough by implying the former Florida Congressman may have something to do with the death of a woman in his district office in 2001. A 28-year-old woman, Lori Klausutis, of Niceville, was found on the floor behind a desk in the office. But police said there was no signs of foul play or outward indication of suicide.
We reported at the time: Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Berkland has said Klausutis, 28, of Niceville, lost consciousness because of an abnormal heart rhythm and fell, hitting her head on a desk. The head injury caused the death, Berkland said. But the death has been the source of whispers and conspiracy theories over the years as Scarborough emerged as a television personality.
So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!

Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets. He is not well. https://t.co/XJhW5ZHNfs

Outrageous reference re @JoeNBC where @potus @realDonaldTrump just crossed the line with me. 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. https://t.co/3lXfBPnaTV

Interesting how things change when they get personal, isn’t it?

You reap what you sow. You knew damn well what you were getting when you voted for him. Don’t whine now because he actually lashed out at someone YOU care about.
