President Donald Trump's epic Twitter rampage continued on Wednesday when he demanded an investigation into an "unsolved mystery" surrounding MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.
"So now tha (sic) Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?" Trump asked. "And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!"

The "unsolved mystery" Trump is referring to revolves around Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old intern who was found dead in Scarborough's office in 2001 back when he was still a Florida congressman.
A medical examiner concluded that Klausutis had suffered from heart problems that caused her to faint and fatally hit her head on a desk, where she was found dead hours later. Both police and the medical examiner said they found no evidence of foul play, or that Klausutis' death was a suicide. There has never been any evidence linking Scarborough to her death.
Scarborough subsequently responded to Trump's tweets by simply noting that the president's mental health seems to be in a less-than-ideal state.
"Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump's bizarre tweets," Scarborough wrote. "He is not well."
