While the number of people who have died from Covid-19 aproaches 100,000, Mr. Trump has been occupied with more pressing matters. In addition to mocking his likely opponent, Joe Biden, for doing the responsible thing and wearing a mask in public, the Dear Leader has been a busy boy the last few days tweeting out conspiracy theories and disproven accusations against MSNBC host and former congressman Joe Scarborough. Mr. Trump has hurt feelings because his former friend has turned against him. Unfortunately, he’s putting an innocent family through hell in his deranged quest for revenge.
For those not familiar with the story, in 2001, Lori Klausutis, died while working in Scarborough’s Florida congressional office. Medical authorities quickly determined that she had an undiagnosed heart condition which caused her to faint and hit her head on the corner of her desk. This was a tragedy, especially as she was only 28-years-old. However, Scarborough was in Washington at the time, Lori had told friends that she wasn’t feeling well, and authorities determined no foul play had occurred.
Mr. Trump has periodically tweeted out his thoughts about this heinous conspiracy theory for the last three years, since the once friendly relationship between himself and Scarborough soured, but over the last several days his attahave intensified. So much so, that Lori’s husband wrote to Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, out of sheer desperation.
Mr. Dorsey has just responded:
We are deeply sorry about the pain these statements, and the attention they are drawing, are causing the family. We’ve been working to expand existing product features and policies so we can more effectively address things like this going forward, and we hope to have those changes in place shortly.
In other words, Twitter is continuing to treat Trump’s garbage tweets as important historical missives, no matter who they hurt. This is pathetic and unacceptable.
