Donald Trump has 'early stage dementia' claims TV host Joe Scarborough

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

Spreading unproven information isn't new to Trump, and Wednesday's tweets are a continuation of the president's actions on the campaign trail.

Trump's mental health has been a topic of debate pretty much since he began his campaign.

The "Morning Joe" host blasted Trump's Cabinet members and administration officials, saying, "You serve America and you know it". 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".

The President called for Scarborough, along with MSNBC boss Phil Griffin, to be fired over the "unsolved mystery". "When is it the right time to talk about a mentally unstable president in the White House in a nuclear showdown with another unstable madman in North Korea?" You know you don't serve Donald J. Trump, scam developer, scam, you know, Trump University proprietor. "This is all we're going to say on the matter".

When Scarborough was a Republican Congressman for Florida, his intern, Lori Klausutis, was found dead in his Florida district office.

Local Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Berkland ruled that Klausutis, an avid runner, lost consciousness because of an undiagnosed heart condition and collapsed, hitting her head on the desk as she fell.

After news broke of NBC's firing of Matt Lauer due to sexual harassment allegations, Trump vaguely accused NBC chairman Andy Lack of wrongdoing. Scarborough was in Washington when Klausutis died.

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.

He and his co-host Mika Brzezinski used to be friends with Mr Trump, who regularly called their programme during the early days of his candidacy.

Back in July, Scarborough said, "Far be it from me to speculate on the president's state of mind" - before proceeding to speculate on the president's state of mind regarding Russia's interference in the 2016 US election.
