GOP Rep. Kinzinger Begs Trump to Stop Accusing Joe Scarborough of Murder
Donald Trump and Joe Scarborough, at one point, had a very cordial relationship. But that relationship has devolved into something much different. The MSNBC host has frequently been critical of the President. In return, Trump has now gone on a campaign of hinting the former Florida congressman committed murder.
The Republican lawmakers across the country have largely taken Trump’s conspiracy theories with a grain of salt. While the odd Jeff Flake or Mitt Romney may speak up, the average Republican has either been scared of Trump or happy to get Supreme Court Justices confirmed. That’s why it is somewhat newsworthy that Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger took to Twitter on Sunday to plead with Trump to stop his campaign against Scarborough.
Kinzinger was replying to a post where the President wrote, “A lot of interest in this story about Psycho Joe Scarborough. So a young marathon runner just happened to faint in his office, hit her head on his desk, & die? I would think there is a lot more to this story than that? An affair? What about the so-called investigator? Read story!”
The Illinois congressman replied to the tweet, “Completely unfounded conspiracy. Just stop. Stop spreading it, stop creating paranoia. It will destroy us.”

Scarborough’s wife and co-host, Mika Brzezinski, responded to Trump’s comments, saying, “Donald, you’re a sick person. You’re really a cruel, sick, disgusting person.”
