President Donald Trump once again took aim Monday morning at MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough over an old conspiracy theory about the death of one of his congressional interns, calling him a “psycho.”
“‘Concast’ should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough,” Trump said.
“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.”

The tweet seems to have prompted an on-air response from the MSNBC host, who called it “extraordinarily cruel” and urged the president to “take a rest.”
Trump has repeatedly referenced the death of Scarborough’s former Florida staffer Lori Klausutis, who died at 28 due to an apparent head injury. Her death has sparked many conspiracy theories. (RELATED: Who Is The Dead Aide Behind Trump’s Tweet At Joe Scarborough?)
Morning Joe, one of MSNBC’s longest running shows, once enjoyed a tight relationship with Trump as a candidate, but has soured since he became president.
