In recent weeks Donald Trump has been attacking MSNBC host Joe Scarborough by promoting a debunked conspiracy theory that he had murdered a 28-year-old woman named Lori Klausutis, who worked in in his office back in 2001.
Trump started his vicious attacks because Scarborough (who once was a friend and now sees the light) has been criticizing Trump, especially his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Lori's widower is so infuriated that he has stepped in and demanded Twitter take down all of Trump's vile tweets.
Even another Trump media ally, The Washington Examiner is livid over Trump's unserious and dangerous attacks:
Whatever his issues with Scarborough, President Trump's crazed Twitter rant on this subject was vile and unworthy of his office. Some will undoubtedly shrug it off as Trump being Trump, but one could hardly be blamed for reading it and doubting his fitness to lead."
Yesterday, Trump's new
campaign spokeswoman, I mean, press secretary was disgusting when she was asked about Trump's despicable behavior.
In typical Trump fashion she refused to answer direct questions and instead ranted about an Imus interview from seventeen years ago to justify his debased actions.
It was an abominable performance, but one in sync with the lies and conspiracy theories being spread by Trump and his acolytes.
The WSJ editorial board took exception to his latest actions, did not mince words and agrees with C&L's position on Trump:
We don’t write this with any expectation that Mr. Trump will stop. Perhaps he even thinks this helps him politically, though we can’t imagine how. But Mr. Trump is debasing his office, and he’s hurting the country in doing so.
Trump has been debasing the office of the presidency since he began his candidacy in 2015, and has only gotten worse and worse.
Unfortunately for America during this national health crisis, people are dying because of his behavior. The Wall Street Journal is noticing because Trump's behavior is taking down the Republican Party, and Rupert Murdoch's as cuts, with him.
