An Illinois Republican politician congressman alerted President Donald Trump Sunday to “just stop” with his outrageous insinuations that MSNBC analyst Joe Scarborough is a killer.
“Completely unfounded conspiracy. Just stop,” a disappointed Rep. Adam Kinzinger tweeted, lashing Trump’s attack on Scarborough, a regular critic of the president. “Stop spreading it, stop creating paranoia. It will destroy us,” he added, obviously describing Republicans and future elections– or potentially America.
Entirely unproven conspiracy. Simply stop. Stop spreading it, stop producing fear. It will destroy us. https://t.co/XgDl6LmANb

It’s fascinating viewing you folks try to manage the beast that you produced. Simply bear in mind that all of the damage and death he has actually caused on our nation is a direct result of the @GOP and all who support it.

Kinzinger was among the crowds of critics who loaded Twitter with annoyed reactions after Trump consistently showed that Scarborough was in some way connected to the death of a former intern when he was a Florida congressman. Authorities identified that the 2001 death of 28- year-old intern Lori Lausutis was unexpected after she collapsed of an undiagnosed heart disease and struck her head on a desk.
Scarborough’s partner and co-host, Mika Brzezinski, called Trump a “cruel, disgusting. sick person” on their program Wednesday. “He’s once again tweeting conspiracy theories about Joe, falsely accusing him of murder,” she stated.
Trump’s drumbeat attack on Scarborough, co-host of “Morning Joe,” and vicious tweets connecting followers to an unhinged conspiracy website, is extensively considered as a desperate effort by the president to sidetrack thepublic He wishes to direct attention far from criticism of his absence of management throughout the continuous COVID-19 crisis that has actually now declared almost 100,000 lives, critics argue.
For lots of, the baseless attack on a critic in the media was a bridge too far, even for Trump.
The President’s Twitter feed is now equivalent from the craziest MAGA giants. It is the evidentiary record that he is not able and psychologically unsteady to carry out the responsibilities of his office.

it’s simply the president of the united states directly implicating a television host ofmurder really cool, really regular, really dignified, really governmental and not the example a repulsive unhinged morally-bankrupt sweaty warthog would do

We ‘d choose to focus less on one death 30 years earlier and focus more on the 100,000 deaths you’re responsible in the meantime.

Tweets likewise illuminated with criticism for Twitter and CEO Jack Dorsey for not removing Trump’s unproven murder insinuation versus Scarborough, while punishing other users for far lesser policy infractions.
Brzezinski stated in a tweet Wednesday that she prepared to speak with Dorsey about getting the president prohibited from the social media platform for breaking Twitter’s policies “every day.”
Twitter did not instantly react to a HuffPost ask for comment.
I will be connecting to head of twitter about their policies being broken every day by President Tump. Hope my call is taken. Please retweet if you concur
