Mitt Romney Just Perfectly Shamed Trump After Trump Doubled Down on His Slanderous Tweets About Joe Scarborough

A request by the widower of Lori Klausutis for President Donald Trump to stop using his late wife to promote conspiracy theories for Trump's own agenda has not slowed the President's exploitation of her death to attack one of his critics.

On Wednesday morning, Trump posted another slanderous tweet targeting former Republican Congressman, former Trump supporter and current MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.


Scarborough changed his tune on Trump after the 2016 election. Since then he has been in the President's sights.

On Wednesday Trump tweeted:

"Psycho Joe Scarborough is rattled, not only by his bad ratings but all of the things and facts that are coming out on the internet about opening a Cold Case. He knows what is happening!"

But Republican Senator Mitt Romney decided enough was enough.

He responded to the President's tweet and posted:

"I know Joe Scarborough. Joe is a friend of mine."
"I don't know T.J. Klausutis. Joe can weather vile, baseless accusations but T.J.?"
"His heart is breaking. Enough already."



T.J. Klausutis is the widower of the woman the President continues to exploit for his feud with Scarborough with no regard for her family or her memory. Senator Romney reminded him that Lori Klausutis has a family that are being affected each time Trump decides to use her death as a childish taunt against someone who criticized him.

Romney was not alone in that belief.







While others offered other crimes—with equal credibility as Trump's claims—that should be investigated.




Another Trump lie on Twitter earned a factcheck from Twitter for the first time. It is unclear whether Twitter will step up and factcheck these lies too.
