A resurfaced clip from 2003 is being circulated online to show a disparate reaction from Joe Scarborough about references to the death of his office intern decades ago.
The MSNBC host expressed indignant outrage when President Donald Trump brought up the tragic and accidental death of his intern, but he was far less upset in the clip from the Don Imus show.
"Don't be afraid to be funny, because you are funny. You know, I ask you why you won Congress, you said you'd had sex with the intern and then you had to kill her, that's pretty risky to say," Imus says on the clip to Scarborough.
"Exactly, what're you gonna do," Scarborough responds, laughing.
The video clip was re-discovered by the Media Research Center after he excoriated the president for calling on law enforcement authorities to reopen the case.
"I know you meant to be extraordinarily cruel to me by attacking me, by bringing up a conspiracy theory that has lived in the gutters of the internet for some time now. But just like the Seth Rich conspiracy murder that was pushed by your allies, you don't understand the pain you cause," Scarborough said in response to the president's tweet.
"You don't understand the pain you cause," he continued, "you cause to families who've already lost a loved one. Not me. Not my children. Not anybody that knows me. They know the truth. You once again drag a family through this and make them relive it again, just like Seth Rich's parents, as if losing a loved one the first time isn't enough."
Here's the unearthed 2003 video:
