White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended President Donald Trump Tuesday amid multiple questions from reporters about POTUS’ continued tweets about a Joe Scarborough murder conspiracy theory.
Jon Karl asked, “Why is the president making these unfounded allegations? I mean, this is pretty nuts, isn’t it? The president’s accusing somebody of possible murder. The family is pleading with the president to please stop unfounded conspiracy theories. Why is he doing that?”
“Mika accused the president of being responsible for 100,000 deaths in this country. That’s incredibly irresponsible,” McEnany said. “”They’ve dragged his family through the mud, they’ve made false accusations that I won’t go through, that I would not say from this podium and they should be held to account.”
WH Press Sec Kayleigh McEnany again says falsely that Lori Klausutis was an intern.
Lori Klausutis had spent two years as a constituent services coordinator in Joe Scarborough’s office. She was not an intern.

Kayleigh McEnany justifies Trump’s baseless accusations that Joe Scarborough murdered a staffer by bringing up a Don Imus segment from 2003. (Showing they’ve devoted time and resources on this conspiracy.)
