Death really isn’t really something to joke about…
Sure, we ALL have a chuckle when evil people like Jeffrey Epstein expire, but when it comes to the loss of innocent lives, death is rarely a laughing matter.
If you find the death of an innocent funny, there’s probably something wrong with your brain, your soul, or both.
So, apparently, there’s something wrong with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough—because he thinks the death of one of his interns back in 2001 is funny.
For those not familiar with the story, here’s a quick summary: back in 2001, Joe Scarborough wasn’t the host of a morning talk show, but was instead a Congressman from Florida. During that time, one of his congressional interns, 28-year old Lori Klausutis, reportedly collapsed in Scarborough’s office due to an undiagnosed heart condition, hitting her head on a desk in the fall and dying from her injuries.
A Mysterious Death And A MORE Mysterious Reaction
Her death was clouded in mystery for years. People began to theorize that Scarborough was actually involved in the incident. People like Liberal news publisher Markos Moulitsas and Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore (who registered the website JoeScarboroughKilledHisIntern.com), were some of the most prominent names pushing the idea.
Well, given how hard Scarborough has gone against Trump in the last four years, some may not remember that, during his time in Congress, he was a Republican, not the Liberal snowflake he’s come to be.
So, it makes sense why Liberals attacked him back then.
But it wasn’t until Scarborough’s appearance on radio show Imus in the Morning with host Don Imus, during which he JOKED about Klausutis’ death, that people really started to think that he might have been involved.
The video clip has gone viral recently and what is said should be disgusting by anybody’s standards, let alone those of a former Congressman.
In the clip, Imus tells a nervous Psycho Joe (as Trump now calls him), “Don’t be afraid to be funny, because you are funny. I asked you why you wanted to join Congress, you said because you wanted to have sex with an intern and then you’d have to kill her.”
Scarborough’s reply to this was even more disgusting than the question. Psycho Joe actually LAUGHED and simply said, “Exactly.”
Imus followed up with, “That’s pretty risky to say.”
And what did Psycho Joe say? Did he say something to honor the memory of this woman? Did he reach out with condolences to her family?
Nope. He merely shrugged and said, “Well, what are ya gonna do?”

Reopening Old Wound
It was this viral video that prompted President Trump to bring this questionable case back to the world’s attention—and of course, the fact that it also hurts one of his biggest political naysayers is basically just icing on the cake.
The president’s controversial tweets about investigating Scarborough have raised a lot of questions, and White House journalists have been pressing Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany about Trump has taken such an interest.
McEnany coolly replied, “It was Don Imus and Joe Scarborough that joked about killing an intern, joked and laughed about it,” directing the Press Corp to the video.
“I would just refer everyone, for those of you who haven’t heard it, go back and listen to the Don Imus sound bite. It was very callous. It was very cruel. And I think laughing and joking about the death of an intern is really uncalled for, and that’s something that we can all agree to.”
The true shame of it is that Klausutis’s widower has had these memories dragged up after almost 20 years. He’s the true victim of this whole gross affair, regardless of whether foul play was involved or not.
But one can’t help but wonder…
Did Scarborough have a hand in it? Or is this all just hearsay and scuttlebutt?
Only time will tell…
