President Donald Trump said MSNBC host Joe Scarborough killed his intern Lori Klausutis in 2001, which was not true.
When Scarborough was in Congress, one person died in his Florida office. Trump has told his supporters that they need to “investigate further” and “use forensic geniuses” to find out more about what happened.
Joe Scarborough is an American attorney, political scientist, and former politician who also hosts a television show. He and his wife Mika Brzezinski host Morning Joe on MSNBC.
Scarborough was a member of the US House of Representatives from 1995 to 2001. He was the representative for Florida’s first congressional district.
Check out the facts about the murder charge and the charges against Joe Scarborough
President Trump said MSNBC host Joe Scarborough killed one of his staffers in 2021, which was not true.
Trump had tweeted more than once about the false idea that Scarborough was to blame for the death of Lori Klausutis, who worked for him when he was US representative from Florida.
Scarborough, who has spoken out against Trump and his leadership, was not in Florida at the time of the event.
Still, Trump has always said Scarborough was involved, and many people think it’s part of a plan to tarnish the reporter’s reputation.
Since 2017, Trump has repeatedly revisited this false idea. Klausutis died in July 2001 in Scarborough’s Florida office, where she was in charge of constituent services. She was only 28 years old.
An autopsy revealed she died after falling and cracking her head due to an undiagnosed heart condition.
The Joe Scarborough scandal is real
President Trump speaks about the death in 2001 of Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old aide who worked for Republican Representative for Florida’s 1st congressional district, Joe Scarborough.
People made up stories about what happened when Klausutis died, but the police never thought anything was wrong.
Her death is not a mystery to be solved or a case that requires more work.
Klausutis died on July 20, 2001 and was determined to be an accident. Police decided there was no need to investigate further.
Klausutis lost consciousness, fell and hit her head on the ground, killing herself. Michael Berkland, who was in charge of the autopsy, said it was due to an irregular heartbeat.
According to a police report, she was found face down on the floor with her head next to a desk in Scarborough’s Fort Walton Beach office.
Trump asked in a tweet why Scarborough left Congress “quickly and quietly” and suggested it had something to do with Klausutis’ death.
In reality, the death occurred about two months after Scarborough said he was leaving. Scarborough was in Washington when Klausutis died and she was looking for a new job at the time.
Update on Joe Scarborough’s health
Some people say Scarborough is sick. On the other hand, the host hasn’t said anything about how he feels. It was also said that he had diabetes.
Although he doesn’t have diabetes, his second son Andrew does. He also has Asperger’s Syndrome.
Ethan was around 11 years old when he was told he had type 1 diabetes. On the same day, his parents began to learn about the disease and its treatment.
After his post, rumors spread that Joe Scarborough was ill. He said he was ill and traumatized, but not many people knew what that meant in this situation.
