Joe Scarborough’s Brother: ‘Trump Just Crossed the Line’

President Donald Trump is under fire for retweeting three videos of Muslims causing destruction, from a ‘Britain First’ activist’s Twitter page. The videos portrayed an Islamist mob pushing a teenage boy off a roof and then beating him to death, a Muslim destroying a statue of Virgin Mary, and a Muslim migrant beating up a Dutch boy on crutches.

However, that’s not even what Joe Scarborough’s brother, George, is slamming the president about! He claims that he has be a supporter for Trump but that he “crossed the line” when Trump called for an investigation on a staffer that was found dead in a former GOP congressman’s office.

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

Trending: A Message for Obama – “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.”

George fired back, “Outrageous reference re @JoeNBC where @potus@realDonaldTrump just crossed the line with me. I need to see a public apology to my brother Joe or else he has lost my support for good … which is saying a ton given all the support I’ve shown him in past 2 years.”

He quickly followed up with a second tweet stating, “For all the Haters blasting me for defending my brother from @realDonaldTrump now, I KNOW this is , & apologies for being an R & liking SCOTUS pick, booming stock mkt , 3%+ GDP growth, low unemployment, & other policies, still @potus went too far w/me w/tweet . Done.”

The Hill reports: 

Trump on Wednesday mentioned an “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago in a tweet questioning when Joe Scarborough and MSNBC president Phil Griffin will be fired.

The president was referring to Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old office staffer who worked for Scarborough while he was in Congress and was found dead in his district office in July 2001.

A local medical examiner ruled the death an accident, saying Klausutis had collapsed and hit her head on the side of a desk. She had an undiagnosed heart condition, according to the medical examiner, and the head trauma caused a fatal blood clot.
