MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough probably won’t be laughing at his old jokes about sleeping with and then killing his intern.
President Trump and Joe Scarborough have long been embroiled in a feud but things were taken to another level after the president tweeted that Scarborough should be investigated.
“Concast should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough,” the president tweeted earlier this month. Now, unearthed footage from an old interview between Scarborough and Don Imus—first reported by The Gateway Pundit—has Scarborough himself joking about the incident that left Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old congressional aide, dead.
Transcript from Gateway:
During the call between the radio host and Scarborough, Imus says that he asked him when he went into Congress and the then-representative said that “you said you had sex with an intern and then you had to kill her.”
“Exactly,” Scarborough responded with a laugh.
“That’s pretty risky to say,” Imus responded.
“What are you gonna do?” Scarborough continued to joke.
Scarborough was a congressional representative in Florida from 1995 to 2001. After the unexpected death of his staffer, rumors began to swirl about whether he had played a role in her untimely demise. While a medical examiner determined that Klausutis suffered from an abnormal heart rhythm and ultimately hit her head after losing consciousness, many have continued to wonder if there wasn’t foul play involved and if Scarborough may have been having an affair with Klausutis.
The president has repeatedly referenced the incident:
“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! #OPENJOECOLDCASE— Donald J.

I must admit that Lyin’ Brian Williams is, while dumber than hell, quite a bit smarter than Fake News @CNN “anchorman” Don Lemon, the “dumbest man on television”. Then you have Psycho Joe “What Ever Happened To Your Girlfriend?” Scarborough, another of the low I.Q. individuals!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 30, 2020
So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2017
