White House Press Sec. Clashes With Reporters Over Trump’s Joe Scarborough Murder Smear

Published

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany had a contentious briefing with reporters on Tuesday as she defiantly pushed back on criticism of President Donald Trump for pushing the conspiracy theory that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is guilty of murdering intern Lori Klausutis.

“The opening of a Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough was not a Donald Trump original thought, this has been going on for years, long before I joined the chorus,” Trump wrote in a tweet, “about whether or not Joe could have done such a horrible thing? Maybe or maybe not, but I find Joe to be a total Nut Job, and I knew him well, far better than most. So many unanswered & obvious questions, but I won’t bring them up now! Law enforcement eventually will?”

ABC correspondent Jonathan Karl asked McEnany if Trump would honor a request from Klausutis’ family to take down the tweet.

“Why is the president making these unfounded allegations?” Karl asked. “This is pretty nuts, isn’t it? The president is accusing somebody of possible murder. The family is pleading with the president to please stop unfounded conspiracy theories. Why is he doing this?”

“I do know that our hearts are with Lori’s family at this time,” McEnany said without answering the question.

Shen then glanced at her prepared remarks and accused Scarborough of “joking about killing an intern” years after Klausutis died.

“I’m sure that was hurtful to Lori’s family,” she added.

“He’s the president of the United States,” Karl pointed out, “and he’s accusing somebody of possibly murder. This is different. He’s not a private citizen. He’s the president.”

“Yeah,” McEnany said, returning to her notes. “Joe Scarborough, if we want to start talking about false accusations, we have quite a few we can go through.”

“I’m asking about the president’s allegations,” Karl pressed.

McEnany then left the room without addressing the question.
