Trump Calls for Firing of MSNBC President and Joe Scarborough

In his latest tweet, Trump also resurfaces “unsolved mystery” in Florida surrounding “Morning Joe” host

President Donald Trump launched a second Twitter broadside on his former “Apprentice” network, NBC, after its news division abruptly fired veteran “Today” host Matt Lauer over unspecified allegations of sexual misconduct.

In his latest tweet, Trump called for the termination of MSNBC President Phil Griffin and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough.

“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?” said Trump “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”

Trump’s line about “the unsolved mystery that tok place in Florida years ago” appears to be a reference to Lori Klausutis, a congressional intern who was found dead inside then-Congressman Joe Scarborough’s Florida office in 2001.

Klausutis’ death was later attributed to heart problems. There were no allegations of foul play. Scarborough resigned from Congress not long after.

Representatives for MSNBC and Scarborough were not immediately available for comment.
