In addition to a) misspelling Conor b) misspelling Lamb c) going after a veteran on Memorial Day as an "American fraud," the president d) falsely claimed Lamb voted for Pelosi as speaker. Lamb kept his promise not to do so, voting instead for Joe Kennedy. pic.twitter.com/bkPgN87DIc
“The largest canyon in the Solar System cuts a wide swath across the face of Mars. Named Valles Marineris, the grand valley extends over 3,000 kilometers long, spans as much as 600 kilometers across, and delves as much as 8 kilometers deep. By comparison, the Earth’s Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA is 800 kilometers long, 30 kilometers across, and 1.8 kilometers deep. The origin of the Valles Marineris remains unknown, although a leading hypothesis holds that it started as a crack billions of years ago as the planet cooled.”
A blow to her head? Body found under his desk? Left Congress suddenly? Big topic of discussion in Florida…and, he’s a Nut Job (with bad ratings). Keep digging, use forensic geniuses! https://t.co/UxbS5gZecd
Given the source, it isn’t really necessary to say that this is utter nonsense, but for the record, there is no mystery, unsolved or other. An autopsy revealed that Lori Klausutis had an undiagnosed heart condition. The coroner concluded she passed out and hit her head as she fell. Although the head injury caused the death, she wasn’t struck by another person. Not that it would matter if she had been. When she died in Florida, Scarborough was in Washington.
In an earlier tweet, Trump asked, “Why did he leave Congress so quietly and quickly? Isn’t it obvious?” Scarborough had announced his decision to exit politics two months BEFORE Klausutis’s accident.
In other words, there’s not a single word of truth to the accusation. The incident had absolutely nothing to do with Scarborough. Trump is just plain nuts.
I’d like to know when Twitter is going to grow a pair, follow its own rules, and ban Trump? If not a full ban, moderate all his Tweets, and delete any which are dangerously false or misleading. The real problem is that Trump’s support base is filled with low-information crazies who will actually believe this nonsense.
(Answer to the Twitter query: never. Like the craven GOP senators, they are afraid of the career consequences. The Trumpites would all pull their accounts, and Twitter’s revenues would tumble.)
