This may come as a shock to you, but Joe Scarborough has announced that he is leaving the Republican party. Scarborough recently made the announcement during an appearance on Steven Colbert’s show.
“I am a Republican, but I’m not going to be a Republican anymore,” Scarborough said during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
The former Florida GOP congressman said he was going to become an Independent.
Obviously, his remarks come after the President mocked his cohost. At one time the President and Scarborough were very cozy and during the Republican primary Scarborough and company took a lot of heat for being too “cozy.” However, a lot has happened since then and the GOP even targeted the show in May saying it is a classic case of “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
