“Morning Joe” co-host and former GOP Congressman Joe Scarborough said he is leaving the Republican Party during an appearance Tuesday on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
“I am a Republican but I’m not gonna be a Republican anymore,” Scarborough told Colbert. “I’m gonna become an independent.”
On June 29, President Donald Trump tweeted about Scarborough and his co-host Mika Brzezinski, calling Scarborough “Psycho Joe” and Brzezsinki “low I.Q. Crazy Mika.”
He followed up by suggesting Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when she and Scarborough visited Mar-a-Lago on December 30.
Scarborough served as a Congressman for the Republican Party in Florida’s 1st District from 1995 to 2001.
