Trump Under Fire for Resurfacing 2001 Death of Joe Scarborough Intern

MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough went on a rant Thursday morning about President Donald Trump being "mentally unstable" and called out Secretary of Defense James Mattis and other members of Trump's cabinet for not taking action.

Trump wrote, "So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?" Trump said. "And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the "unsolved mystery" that took place in Florida years ago?"

Inquiries to Joe Scarborough were not returned on Wednesday morning.

Online, the reaction was swift, as critics denounced Trump for using Klausutis' tragic death for a Twitter shot at Scarborough, a former Republican who was once a Trump ally but has grown increasingly critical since the former real estate mogul assumed the White House.

Scarborough responded to Trump's tweet on Wednesday, saying the president was "not well".

To partially explain the reason behind Mr Trump's many falsehoods, reporters covering Mr Trump - such as Maggie Haberman of the New York Times - have said the President has a lifelong habit of attempting to create and sell his own version of reality.

This was the first year on record in which the continental United States was hit by two Category 4 hurricanes, Harvey and Irma. On this final day of the Atlantic hurricane season, there are no systems present that pose a risk for future development.

Trump appeared to be referencing the 2001 death of an intern for then Florida Rep. Scarborough.

"Outrageous reference re @JoeNBC where @potus @realDonaldTrump just crossed the line with me". 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. "This is all we're going to say on the matter".

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. "Joe and I are not intimidated and his freakish behavior contravenes both the Constitution and basic moral judgment".
