Usually when someone wants you to stop talking about something that they refer to as a "conspiracy," it's because it's not really a conspiracy. There is at least some truth to it, and that's what they're afraid of.
On Wednesday, House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney stated that President Donald Trump should stop tweeted about a "conspiracy theory" about Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough.
The Hill reports:
The criticism from the third-ranking GOP leader came just a couple hours after Trump took to Twitter for the second day in a row to raise a conspiracy theory about the death of an aide to then-Rep. Scarborough (R-Fla.), despite pleas from the aide’s widower to stop.
“I do think the president should stop tweeting about Joe Scarborough. I think we’re in the middle of a pandemic. He’s the commander in chief of this nation, and it's causing great pain to the family of the young woman who died. So I would urge him to stop it,” the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney told a reporters outside of the Capitol.
When a reporter asked her if she personally knew Scarborough, she responded, “The president should stop tweeting about it.”
During the news conference moments earlier, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), a top Trump ally, was pressed about the Trump tweets on Scarborough, who served in Congress from 1995 to 2001.
“I did not serve with Scarborough. ... I don’t know anything about the case itself,” McCarthy told reporters.
Few GOP lawmakers have spoken out against Trump’s attacks on Scarborough. But earlier this week, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) took aim at Trump on Twitter, calling the story a “completely unfounded conspiracy” and urging the president to “just stop. Stop spreading it, stop creating paranoia. It will destroy us.”
But Trump has not stopped. On Wednesday, in the face of media criticism and pleas from the widower, Trump continued to bash Scarborough, who with his wife and co-host Mika Brzezinski have become some of Trump’s most high-profile and vocal critics.
“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,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday. “He knows what is happening!”
If there is one thing we have learned since Trump became president, it's that if he is speaking out about something, even when everyone is trying to prove him wrong, he is usually right.
I'll be interested to see how this plays out.
