Trump praises closure of Weekly Standard: 'Rest in peace!'
Scarborough: Trump allies told me he has dementia
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said on Thursday that people close to President Trump told him during the campaign that Trump has "early stages of dementia."
During MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Scarborough said Trump is "completely detached from reality."
"You have somebody inside the White House that the New York Daily News says is mentally unfit," Scarborough said.
"That people close to him say is mentally unfit, that people close to him during the campaign told me had early stages of dementia."
Scarborough said the country is closer to war on the Korean Peninsula than most Americans know.
"We heard this months ago, that we are going to have a ground war in Korea, they believe that inside the White House for a very long time," Scarborough said.
"If this is not what the 25th Amendment was drafted for," he added, referring to the amendment that covers presidential succession and the response to a president with disabilities.
Scarborough is a frequent critic of Trump, often questioning his mental health.
On Wednesday, Trump took aim at Scarborough on Twitter with a tweet appearing to call for an investigation into the death of a staffer who was found in the former GOP congressman's district office in 2001. Scarborough said Wednesday the president is "not well."
