MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski and CNN's Anderson Cooper slammed President Donald Trump on their shows on Wednesday, after he referenced a murder conspiracy involving Brzezinski's cohost and husband Joe Scarborough.
As he has before, Trump tweeted unproven theories that the death of Lori Klausutis, a staff member at Scarborough's Florida office in 2001, was an "unsolved case". On May 12 Trump tweeted, "When will they open a Cold Case on the Psycho Joe Scarborough matter in Florida".
In tweets, Mr Trump has appeared to link MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough to the death of an aide two decades ago, a conspiracy theory debunked by police. Donald, you are a sick person.
"You're a sick person to put this family through this, to put her husband through this, to do this just because you're mad at Joe, because Joe got you again today, because he speaks the truth, and he speaks plainly about your lack of interest and empathy in others and your lack of ability to handle this massive human catastrophe, the fact that you have made it worse and you make it worse every day", Brzezinski said.
She also demanded Twitter take down the president's incendiary tweets. You'll be hearing from me on this because this is BS.
"Donald, you're a sick person", Ms Brzezinski said.
Brzezinski took offense to the president's hypothesis on whether or not Scarborough was instantly concerned within the case. Did he get away with murder?
"You should be ashamed of yourself", she scolded the social media giant. Why did he leave Congress so quietly and quickly? A total nut job!'
'In both cases, the department undercut the work of career employees to protect an ally of the president, an abdication of the commitment to equal justice under the law, ' he wrote in an op-ed. She died in 2001 while working in Joe's Fort Walton Beach, FL congressional office when he was a U.S. Representative for Florida's 1st District. Her dying lengthy since was dominated unintentional, with a health worker that figuring out a coronary heart situation brought on her to move out and hit her head on a desk.
Trump tweeted out a compilation of comments Stone made on host Lou Dobbs" TV show on the Fox Business Network where Stone compared himself to fired Gen. Mike Flynn and said he was "set up' by prosecutors.
Mr Trump was the most high-profile supporter of the bogus "birther" theory that former President Barack Obama was born in Kenya and ineligible for the presidency.
