Mika Brzezinski called President Donald Trump "sick and disgusting" and demanded Twitter ban him from the platform after he tweeted out a call for an investigation into the death of an intern for then-Rep. Joe Scarborough, R-Fla., 20 years ago.
"He's tweeting again, all sorts of crazy things . . . once again tweeting conspiracy theories about Joe [Scarborough], falsely accusing him of murder, talking about the death of a young staffer in his congressional office years ago, and calling him dangerous to walk the streets," Brzezinski said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday morning.
The president's tweet from earlier this month suggested Scarborough might be involved in the death of Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old intern found dead in his Florida district office when the show host served as a congressman in 2001.
Trump tweeted May 12:
"When will they open a Cold Case on the Psycho Joe Scarborough matter in Florida. Did he get away with murder? Some people think so."
Trump continued to press for an investigation Wednesday into Scarborough and also referenced what might be a new wrinkle in the Roger Stone case.
Trump tweeted Wednesday:
"Roger Stone has been treated very unfairly. How about that jury Forewoman, does anybody think that was fair. DISGRACEFUL! Stay tuned. @FoxNews. And guys like Low Ratings Psycho Joe Scarborough are allowed to walk the streets? Open Cold Case!"
Brzezinski attacked Trump, claiming his tweets are insensitive to Klausutis' family.
"That's sick, Donald, you're a sick person," she said, "to put this family through this.
"To do this just because you're mad at Joe, because Joe got ya again today, because he speaks the truth, and he speaks plainly about your lack of interest and empathy in others, and your lack of ability to handle this massive human catastrophe, the fact that you've made it worse, and that you make it worse every day, and that you won't even wear a mask to protect people from your germs," she added.
"You're really a cruel, sick, disgusting person. And you can keep tweeting about Joe, but you're just hurting other people. And of course, you're hurting yourself."
