While on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” guest Christina Greer, a professor at Fordham University, brushed aside the news of the illegal immigrant who was arrested and charged for the murder of Mollie Tibbetts.
“I’m sure we’ll hear what he has to say about this at his rally, but Fox News is talking about, you know, a girl in Iowa and not this, right?” Greer said.
“And tomorrow morning, we know he’ll wake up and tweet and sort of, you know, besmirch the reputation of Michael Cohen and all the people around him and really go back to Mueller,” she continued. “And this is, obviously, going to boil down to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.”

Greer later apologized for her remarks on her Twitter account:
Yesterday I said something flippant that was unintended. Mollie Tibbets was a promising young woman who lost her life. My hope is that her family will find peace & justice and that her murder is not used to justify a discriminatory immigration policy. #Apologiesaremyown.

Tibbetts was a 20-year-old student who attended the University of Iowa and had disappeared in July while jogging.
Rich Rahn, the special agent in charge of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said suspect Cristhian Rivera told investigators Tibbetts warned him she would call the police if he did not leave her alone.
“He in turn chased her down and then, he tells us, that at some point in time he blacks out and then he comes to near an intersection (where) we believe he then placed Mollie,” Rahn said.
