The AP fact checked Trump's Joe Scarborough tweet

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" host, Joe Scarborough, once again questioned President Donald Trump's mental stability and fitness for office Thursday morning when he claimed that "people close to him during the campaign" told him that Trump was suffering from the "early stages of dementia".

"Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump's weird tweets", Scarborough wrote to his 1.96 million followers. "He is not well".

This tweet appears to be a clear reference to the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, who was a staffer in Joe Scarborough's congressional office.

The MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski railed against President Donald Trump on Thursday, calling him "mentally unstable" and suggesting he is unfit to serve. An investigation concluded that there was no evidence of foul play and Scarborough was not present at the office at the time of the accident.

"This is the president attempting to exploit the tragic death of a young woman - one who had heart problems and hit her head when she fell - to score a cheap spurious political point". Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning.

Now Scarborough's brother George in Georgia has finally found a reason not to support Trump.

"The president crossed another deeply disturbing line".

Besides the conspiracy theory about Scarborough, Trump has spouted other unproven claims including that former President Barack Obama has a fake US birth certificate and that the Access Hollywood tapes in which he said "grab them by the pussy" about women are not real. Scarborough said. "What are Republicans in the House and Senate - because it's never going to get more deadly serious than it is now".

Before the 2016 presidential election, Scarborough received criticism for being too close to Trump, but has since shifted his stance. Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. I would like the cabinet members - serving America, not the president; serving America.
