Joe Scarborough Rips ‘Dying’ Republican Party In Blistering Op-Ed
In a piece titled “Trump is killing the Republican Party,” the “Morning Joe” co-host called out GOP members of Congress for “shamelessly” standing by President Trump, a “longtime Democrat who switched parties after the promotion of a racist theory about Barack Obama.”
“I did not leave the Republican Party,” he wrote. “The Republican Party left its senses.”
“I am a Republican, but I’m not going to be a Republican anymore,” Scarborough said. He said he planned to register as an independent voter.
In the op-ed, Scarborough reiterated his belief that the Republican Party abandoned its core values long before Trump became president.
“Neither [Abraham] Lincoln, William Buckley nor Ronald Reagan would recognize this movement,” he wrote.
