Trump Wants Cold Case Investigation Into Frequent Critic Joe Scarborough
Donald Trump and Joe Scarborough haven’t always had a contentious relationship. The two men were once friendly and the television host had often visited the President at Mar-a-Lago. Scarborough’s show, Morning Joe, was even criticized for helping to humanize Trump and propel him to electoral victory.
Now the duo, however, have a deeply strained relationship. The host has been very critical of Trump and the criticism has now stung the President to the point that he is now asking Comcast to open an investigation into Scarborough.
Trump took to Twitter on Monday morning, writing, “‘Concast’ should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough. I know him and Crazy Mika well, used them beautifully in the last Election, dumped them nicely, and will state on the record that he is ‘nuts’. Besides, bad ratings!”

The President even attempted to start his own hashtag, finishing his tweet with #OPENJOECOLDCASE.
In 2001, a Scarborough staffer named Lori Klausutis died in his office. Some critics of the tv host have claimed that the death was suspicious.
There is no mystery about the death, however. According to the Associated Press:
“An autopsy revealed that Klausutis had an undiagnosed heart condition and a coroner concluded she passed out and hit her head as she fell. The coroner said the head injury caused the death, but she wasn’t struck by another person. The death occurred a month after Scarborough announced he was leaving office. Scarborough was in Washington when Klausutis died.”
