Joe Scarborough: Trump Has Dementia, His Allies Told Me

02 December 2017

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".

Scarborough also suggested that sources close to Trump once told him the president has "early stages of dementia".

"Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump's freaky tweets", Scarborough wrote on Twitter Wednesday. Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.), when he was a member of Congress. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said "the president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful".

Scarborough's rant follows the president's tweet yesterday morning, made after the Wednesday broadcast of Morning Joe where he called for an investigation into the "unsolved mystery" in Florida, clearly hinting at the infamous "dead intern scandal" the now-MSNBC host faced when he was a Congressman. Rex Tillerson, when is this the right time to talk about a mentally unstable president in the White House and a nuclear showdown with another unstable mad man in North Korea? "When are we supposed to say this, after the first nuclear missile goes? And here's the thing, everybody around Donald Trump knows he's not stable".

Trump wrote, "So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?"

Scarborough pointed to the 25th Amendment and the process for removing an unfit president from office.

Scarborough released a statement soon after the discovery: "My staff and family are greatly saddened by the loss of Lori Klausutis". In August 2016, Scarborough penned an editorial in the Washington Post, calling for the Republican party to refuse to accept Trump as their candidate. An autopsy report found that she had been feeling unwell and heart problems caused her to fall on her desk and hit her head.

The TV presenter spoke about the use of the 25th amendment, which is in place to remove a president should they be deemed to be unfit to continue in the role.
