Well, that is just…that is just…something that Trump would do.

President Donald Trump, via his son-in-law Jared Kushner, encouraged his pals at the notorious supermarket tabloid National Enquirer in 2017 to push the debunked conspiracy theory that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough murdered a female congressional aide, Lori Klausutis, knowledgeable sources confirmed to The Daily Beast.

More recently, the president has displayed a bizarre obsession with the allegations, even bringing it up Wednesday morning amid nationwide protests, chaos, and growing unrest, declaring on Fox News radio that he thought Scarborough “got away with murder.” Since last month, officials on Trump’s campaign and in his White House have also devoted time and resources to weighing in on the Scarborough smear.

Trump’s desire to trash the Morning Joe co-host long predates his recent and frequent ravings about the conspiracy theory while governing a country facing a global pandemic, a shattered economy, and widespread civil unrest over the death of George Floyd. In fact, the president attempted to plant the false and inflammatory tabloid story during the first year of his presidency, coinciding with a complete breakdown in his once warm relationship with the MSNBC host—a media feud that included accusations of a blackmail conspiracy and the president alleging that Scarborough’s wife and co-host Mika Brzezinski had gotten a botched, bloody facelift.

You know it is not just that Trump is without a doubt the worst president in American history, he is also undoubtedly when the worst people to ever walk the planet. 

There is nothing that is too immoral or unethical for him to do to those he considers his enemies. 

And he turns on his former friends with the viciousness of a rabid hyena. 

I think that the reasons that Trump remains cancer-free is out of professional courtesy. 

Of course, having said that Mika and Joe once considered him their friend and promoted his candidacy right up until he won the nomination, so what does that say about them?
