President Donald Trump on Tuesday octupled down on his widely criticized decision to push bogus conspiracy theories about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough murdering a former staffer.

In a tweet posted this morning, the president once again called for police to investigate the death of Lori Klausutis, the former Scarborough staffer who died in 2001.

“The opening of a Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough was not a Donald Trump original thought, this has been going on for years, long before I joined the chorus,” the president wrote in his tweet. “So many unanswered & obvious questions, but I won’t bring them up now! Law enforcement eventually will?”

An  AP fact check of Trump’s claims shows a coroner’s report found that Klausutis, who suffered from an undiagnosed heart condition, fainted and fatally hit her head while working in Scarborough’s Florida office. The fact check also noted that Scarborough was in Washington, D.C. at the time of Klausutis’s death.

Trump’s latest promotion of this baseless conspiracy theory came on the same morning that Timothy Klausutis, who is Lori Klausutis’s former husband, wrote a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey begging him to take down Trump’s tweets mentioning his late wife.

“I’m asking you to intervene in this instance because the President of the United States has taken something that does not belong him — the memory of my dead wife — and perverted it for perceived political gain,” Klausutis wrote. “I would also ask that you consider Lori’s niece and two nephews who will eventually come across this filth in the future.”

Trump’s decision to once again take up this issue despite Klausutis’s pleas drew swift blowback on the internet — check out some reactions below.

Kushner and Trump's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, on Friday sent a letter to the Lincoln Project warning that the billboards were defamatory. “Those ads show Ms. Trump smiling and gesturing toward a death count of Americans and New Yorkers, and attribute to Mr. Kushner the statement that “[New Yorkers] are going to suffer and that’s their problem” (alteration in original), with body bags underneath,” the letter read.

‘He blew it!’ Keith Olbermann erupts over Trump’s ‘stupid and dull’ debate performance — ‘the oxygen of his rise to power was gone’

Published

On his new political show on YouTube, commentator Keith Olbermann ripped into President Donald Trump for his performance during the final presidential debate. Olbermann said that Trump "ran out of bullsh*t" as he tried to attack his rival Joe Biden.

"I don't mean to say that he was honest," he clarified. "It seems he was lying and manipulating reality at an even higher rate than usual. But with a few momentary exceptions, the salesmanship, the oxygen of his rise to power, was gone."

Olbermann said Trump needed "a debate knockout." Instead, the incumbent president just appeared "stupid and dull."

Mary Trump sheds light on the president’s bizarre pattern of psychological projection

President Donald Trump's niece, psychologist Mary Trump, appeared Friday on CNN to discuss her uncle's behavior during the recent president debate.

CNN host Anderson Cooper noted that Tony Schwartz, who is best known for ghostwriting "Trump: The Art of the Deal," has said "that when the president attacks people, the words he uses, the attacks he wages against other people are really things that are true about himself."

The CNN host said a similar dynamic was at play during the final presidential debate when Trump attacked Biden as being part of an organized crime family.

"It is amazing how much projection there is and I don't know if that's the term," Cooper said.
