    Former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough told Stephen Colbert tonight that he’s leaving the GOP because he can’t take any more of the thousand excuses the party has come up with for “overlooking” the things Donald Trump has said and done

    Inexplicable,” the Morning Joe host agreed, adding that it was “well before Donald Trump was elected president that my party has betrayed their core values. Back in December of 2015, Donald Trump supported a Muslim ban,” which was just one of the disturbing things he said during the presidential campaign.

    “In February, when he pretended he did not know who David Duke was and what the KKK did, you didn’t have Republicans saying, ‘I can never support Donald trump because he’s racist,'” Scarborough scoffed.

    And they’ve come up with a thousand other excuses to overlook things Trump has said and done, Scarborough continued, like saying an Indiana-born judge could not be fair to him in a lawsuit because he’s “Mexican.”

    “Time and time again, they look the other way. And they’re doing the same now,” Scarborough told Colbert. “It’s disgusting, and you have to ask yourself, ‘What exactly is the Republican Party willing to do? How far are they willing to go? How much of this country and our values are they willing to sell out?’

    I guess Joe was a "moderate republican" ?

    Many Americans probably have forgotten, or never knew, that a 28-year-old female staff member was found dead in the summer of 2001 in the office of U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough. Officials in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, determined that Lori Klausutis died from an "accident".The mainstream press largely ignored the case, but our review of several investigative reports indicates the official finding is highly questionable.

    Did Gumby mention this when he was yuking it up with Colbert?
    If anyone remembers him from the 90's as a congressman he was captain conservative, now look at him.

    Jeepers...One would think a hard hitting journalist like this Joe guy, he would doggedly be pursuing the truth in this story, especially given the facts that she was his own staffer and it occurred in his office, does smell fishy.

    Scarborough hasn't been a Republican for years, so who cares? People like him are exactly what has been wrong with the Republican party for years.
    I wonder how long he will be with Mika before they are cheating on each other again.

    It's even hard to believe how phoney a person can be. This Scarborough was a front and center conservative in the 90's. Fake now or fake then.

    don't need support from the opposition
    the Reps have the majority
    shove it down their throats
    shove the wall, the tax cuts,etc...... right down their throats

    God knows the Dems would (and did)

    President Trump was actually friends with Scarborough and Zika. With friends like that.
    Those two deserve each other but I'd advise Mika to sleep with one eye open.

    Chase all the centrists out of the republican party and only the radical kooks will be left.
    Self destruction is not far behind.

    I don't see them passing any health Care bill and ending ObamaCare. They suppose to start working on Tax cuts for the wealthy and the budget in September after summer break.
    Nothing seems to be getting done

    After the way he attacked and slandered PRESIDENT TRUMP on his show I doubt he had any choice in leaving the GOP but if saying it's his choice to leave gets him a mention on a Verizon blog good for him. There are more that need to be booted as well I mean leave by choice. :17142:

    And the Republicans cried about it .....and still are..... With that sort of attitude, why would you expect anything different from Democrats when they regain power, which will happen again at some point.... Someone and some party must step up and actually be the ones that start the change towards breaking the divide.....Aren't Republicans the ones that think they're better?.... Why not show it....rather than what you're suggesting....
