The AP fact checked Trump's Joe Scarborough tweet

  • President Donald Trump speaks to reporters before leaving the White House Tuesday Nov. 21 2017 in Washington for a Thanksgiving trip to Mar-a Lago estate in Palm Beach Fla

In a couple of tweets celebrating NBC News" sacking of Matt Lauer, Trump wondered if MSNBC-parent NBC also would terminate "low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the "unsolved mystery' that took place in Florida years ago?" adding, "Investigate!" "He is not well", Scarborough said on Twitter.

The "Morning Joe" co-anchor, who has spouted his own share of anti-Trump, Russia-collusion theories, responded to the jab on Twitter.

He then chastised the president's cabinet, saying that they serve America, not President Trump: "You know you don't serve Donald J. Trump, scam developer, scam Trump University proprietor, reality TV show host".

The release of the "Access Hollywood" tape, in which Trump bragged about grabbing women by their sexual organs, proved to be a crisis during the campaign, but a number of news outlets, including the New York Times and Washington Post, have reported that the president has since questioned the authenticity of the recording.

Trump has been engaged in a running feud with Scarborough and co-host Mika Brzezinski.




Mr Trump took aim at Mr Scarborough earlier this week, appearing to call for a probe into the death of a staff member who was found in the former politician's office in 2001.

Despite that, the death has been touted as a conspiracy theory against Scarborough since he left Congress and became a popular television personality on MSNBC.

"Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump's weird tweets", Scarborough wrote on Twitter Wednesday. Her death was ruled an accident.

Trump's temperament has been the centre of attention in the past couple of days after he retweeted three tweets from the deputy leader of the far-right group, Britain First.

"Today the president crossed another deeply disturbing line", Brzezinski's statement said. His freaky behavior contravenes both the Constitution and basic moral judgment. Lori Klausutis died at the age of 28 in an incident that police called a result of a pre-existing heart condition that caused her to collapse, hitting her head on Scarborough's desk.
