Did “Morning Cuck” quit the Republican party because Mika made him? Inquiring minds want to know.
Excerpt from Daily Mail
MSNBC host and former GOP Congressman Joe Scarborough is leaving the Republican party because he is disgusted that ‘time and time again it has ‘turned a blind eye to racist Trump’.
Scarborough, 54, made the announcement during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert as he was interviewed alongside his Morning Joe co-host and fiancee Mika Brzezinski.
Scarborough, who has come under tremendous criticism by The White House for turning on President Donald, said to rapturous applause from the audience: ‘I am a Republican but I’m not gonna be a Republican anymore.
‘I’m gonna become an Independent.’
When Colbert asked the former congressman what he made of the Republican Party’s seemingly unwavering support for the current president, Scarborough did not mince words.
‘It’s inexplicable,’ he said. ‘This is well before Donald Trump was elected president that my party betrayed their core values.
‘In 2015 Donald Trump supported a Muslim Ban and I said I could never vote for somebody who was going to ban people based on the God they worshiped.
‘Last February when he talked about David Duke and pretended that he didn’t know who he was or what the Ku Klux Klan did, you didn’t have Republicans coming out saying ‘I can never support Donald Trump because he’s racist!’, they’d have a thousand other reasons why, but they always overlooked that.’
Scarborough who served as a Republican in Florida’s 1st District from 1995 to 2001 said that he felt Trump’s message was disturbing throughout the entire campaign.
‘Time and time and time again, they (the Republican party) turned the other way and they’re doing the same thing now. and it’s actually disgusting,’ he said.
Scarborough and Brzezinski, had been friendly toward President Trump during the 2016 election but have been increasingly critical of him since his inauguration.
‘You have to ask yourself how far are the Republican party willing to go. How much of this country and our values are they willing to sell out?’ Scarborough questioned, justifying his decision to make the move to become an Independent.
Nobody cares what “Morning Joke” has to say or what party he belongs to. MSNBC is paying him well for his treason. Under no circumstances has anything much that this failed politician ever done been with the thought of America First.
