Joe Scarborough Says He's No Longer a Republican On 'Late Show'

In an appearance with Stephen Colbert on 'The Late Show', Joe Scarborough said he no longer considered himself a Republican and was going to register as an Independent.

The 'Morning Joe' co-host, who served as a Republican member of Congress from 1995 to 2001, said the GOP has "betrayed their core values" even before Trump was elected in November.

"Back in the December of 2015 when Donald Trump supported a Muslim ban, I said on the air, it's very simple, it's black and white. I said I can never vote for anybody in my party that would say they would ban people because of the God they worshipped," he explained.

"Time and time and time again, they turned the other way," Scarborough said. "And they're doing the same thing now. And it's actually 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'm not going to be a Republican anymore. I've got to become an independent," he continued.
