MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough went on a rant Thursday morning about President Donald Trump being "mentally unstable" and called out Secretary of Defense James Mattis and other members of Trump's cabinet for not taking action. The day before the co-hosts embarked on their latest speculation about Trump's mental health, the president targeted Scarborough in a tweet.

The "unsolved mystery" Trump alluded to involves the death of Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old congressional aide in Scarborough's Fort Walton Beach, Fla., office, when he was still a Republican representative.
"You have somebody inside the White House that the New York Daily News says is mentally unfit". "You represent 320 million people whose lives are literally in your hands", Scarborough said. "I said America will be strong, we will survive this, but right now at this particular moment-and we're going to get to this in a minute with Richard Haass-we're headed towards a nuclear showdown", Scarborough said. "You know you don't serve Donald J. Trump".
JOE SCARBOROUGH: We heard this months ago, we will have a ground war in Korea, they believe that inside the White House for a very long time. The intern, who was found dead in an office, collapsed of an un-diagnosed heart condition and hit her head on the side of a desk, causing a fatal blood clot, the local medical examiner determined at the time. Trump replied by nicknaming him "Psycho Joe" and accused the show of being "unwatchable", with sagging ratings. But his fiancée, Mika Brzezinski did, calling the leader of the free world "unmoored".
Brzezinski, who is also engaged to Scarborough, said Trump's tweet pushed "a false conspiracy theory to intimidate the press and cause a chilling effect on the 1st Amendment".
Trump wrote, "So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?"
