Trump vs Scarborough





  • Hard for him to complain about fake news.



  • Step back for a bit and realize that we live in a world where the President of the United States can promote crazy conspiracy theories about a public figure and it’s barely news.



  • Die, social media, die.



  • Somebody's been at the Lysol cupboard again.



  • @Mik said in Trump vs Scarborough:

    Die, social media, die.

    C’mon, don’t blame social media, this one is clearly user stupidity.



  • @Axtremus: But generally, one stupo who BSM (Before Social Media) would not post for fear of looking stupid -- with good reason -- now sees a stupid post and is emboldened to post his own stupid post. Two expands to four, and 50 expands to 200. and so on.

    So yeah. Die, die, die.



  • Saw this on his feed yesterday. Clicked the linked article - because I don’t know anything about this. Figured it’d be some ambiguous or unsolved death.

    Here’s Trump’s probable cause:

    https://truepundit.com/flashback-evidence-shows-likely-foul-play-in-scarborough-aides-suspicious-death-in-his-congressional-office/

    Why should we doubt the finding of an accidental death in the Lori Klausutis case? Here are several reasons:

    The nature of the head trauma does not suggest an accidental death–According to a report from American Politics Journal (APJ), Dr. Michael Berkland, medical examiner, determined that Klausutis had an undiagnosed cardiac arrhythmia that caused her to faint and hit her head on a desk in Scarborough’s office. Reports APJJ

    The fainting story does not add up–What is the likelihood that an apparently healthy woman, who ran marathons, would faint and hit her head on a desk in such a way that would cause death? It’s pretty unlikely, our research indicates. Reports APJ

    A report at onlinejournal.com, stated that such a fall in a healthy person is unlikely to cause death. Berkland’s determination of an accidental death, however, brought the investigation to a virtual halt.
    The medical examiner had a troubled history–Before moving to Florida, Dr. Berkland had practiced in Kansas City, Missouri. His time there ended in controversy..



  • He also retweeted Hillary being called a skank yesterday. I’ll admit I lol’d, but rather bad form.



  • Scarborough and Mika have said so much worse about Trump. The only question is, is it Presidential, not if Scarborough makes a living by spewing vomit. Which he does.

    Trump should keep his fvcking mouth shut.

    Nah, even after social media die, Trump would still be spewing crazy stupid nonsense using traditional media, like national TV. Not that there are no good reason to banish social media, it’s just that in this case, it really is user stupidity.



  • Actually there is no good reason to banish social media, if by banish you mean forcibly shut it down. And that holds regardless of how fun and easy it is to ridicule all the stupid there.

    No joke. I’m baffled by how low (high?) the bar has been set before something gets more attention. You could take Trump’s 50 craziest moments and his 51st would’ve otherwise been the “story of the year!” for any previous president.



  • @Mik said in Trump vs Scarborough:

    Amen.



  • Isn't it fun?



  • I have to tell you I am liking the new press secretary. Perfect match.



  • Thankfully there's nothing of importance going on in the country that could distract The Greatest Living American from this vital personal intercourse.

    And when I say intercourse....

    Letter from the widower asking Trump’s lies concerning his wife’s death be deleted from Twitter:

    ”Nearly 19 years ago, my wife, who had an undiagnosed heart condition, fell and hit her head on her desk at work. She was found dead the next morning. Her name is Lori Kaye Klausutis and she was 28 years old when she died. Her passing is the single most painful thing that I have ever had to deal with in my 52 years and continues to haunt her parents and sister.

    I have mourned my wife every day since her passing. I have tried to honor her memory and our marriage. As her husband, I feel that one of my marital obligations is to protect her memory as I would have protected her in life. There has been a constant barrage of falsehoods, half-truths, innuendo and conspiracy theories since the day she died. I realize that may sound like an exaggeration, unfortunately it is the verifiable truth. Because of this, I have struggled to move forward with my life.

    The frequency, intensity, ugliness, and promulgation of these horrifying lies ever increases on the internet. These conspiracy theorists, including most recently the President of the United States, continue to spread their bile and misinformation on your platform disparaging the memory of my wife and our marriage. President Trump on Tuesday tweeted to his nearly 80 million followers alluding to the repeatedly debunked falsehood that my wife was murdered by her boss, former U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough. The son of the president followed and more directly attacked my wife by tweeting to his followers as the means of spreading this vicious lie.

    ...

    I'm asking you [Twitter] 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 . I would also ask that you consider Lori's niece and two nephews who will eventually come across this filth in the future. They have never met their Aunt and it pains me to think they would ever have to about her this way.

    My wife deserves better.
    ...”



  • I'm glad you care. Gives you something to do in your spare time.



  • Clearly, Trump thinks his childish spat is more important than the feelings of somebody who lost their wife.

    What an asshole.
