The week started for President Donald Trump with him doing as he often does: Watching cable news and becoming enraged when a host dared to point to the fact that his poll numbers are sinking precipitously with only six months remaining before the American people cast their votes.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough was the host in question, and he made it clear that Trump looks like one of the weakest incumbents in recent memory, noting:

“That’s why the polls that are coming out are all bad news for him. I know that drives him crazy, makes him do even crazier things. It makes him talk about disinfectants being injected, makes him talk about lights being disinfected, makes him say stupid things about Abraham Lincoln and insult George W. Bush, when the president is trying to bring us together. Donald Trump is down 43 percent to 49 percent to Joe Biden. You look at a Dallas Morning News poll, unbelievable, in Texas, the Dallas Morning News has Donald Trump and Joe Biden tied.”

That was all it took to trigger the president, who lashed back at Scarborough and MSNBC on Twitter:

The “cold case” Trump mentioned appears to be a reference to Lori Klausutis, who was a 28-year-old intern who worked in Scarborough’s office when he was a Florida congressman. But as the Associated Press has reported, there was never any suggestion of wrongdoing on the part of Scarborough:

“An autopsy revealed that Klausutis had an undiagnosed heart condition and a coroner concluded she passed out and hit her head as she fell. The coroner said the head injury caused the death, but she wasn’t struck by another person.”
