MSNBC host and former GOP Congressman Joe Scarborough said he is leaving the Republican party Tuesday during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Scarborough, who has been blasted by The White House for his criticism of President Trump, made the announcement on the show which will air on Tuesday night.

“.@JoeNBC just announced during @colbertlateshow taping that he’s leaving GOP,” CBS reporter Chris Licht tweeted.

“Now an Independent. Watch tonight at 11:35 on @CBS.”

The former congressman served as a Republican in Florida’s 1st District from 1995 to 2001.

Scarborough and “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski have been on the receiving end of withering insults from President Trump’s infamous Twitter account.

He was never a republican to begin with! Announcing he was leaving the US would be more appropriate!

It is time that people STOP all this stupidity, and learn art of communication. I hear insults all the time, if I thought they were true I would be hurt, as the TRUE hurts. There was a saying when I grew up Sticks and Stones can break my bones but names will never hurt me. Same can go with things people say. I had a wise daughter that told me at age 4 that she will never listen to anyone that yells, but if talked to like a person she would listen and take into consideration what was being said. Yes a 4 year old. Lots of homes have fighting, screaming, angry, if you are so frustrated with your own life your reactions will be different then if you are happy with your life and the same thing is said. GET a like Joe, I think to many of these congressmen, House and Senate members have been in office way to long that they have lost sight of the peoples needs that elected them, and want to look out for just themselves. Never mine the tweets stop reading them if they upset you. I am personally glad you left the republicans you haven't stood behind the president since he took office, in fact you are probably another one that has been bought off by a democrat. Glad your gone. It is sad that people can't work together never mind what party you are affiliated with look at what the challenge is that needs to be changed. DAH....Instead of people causing chaos and wasting tax payers money, put that money to GOOD use that benefits all instead of hurting our economy and budget more. I think the democrats have no COMMON SENSE America needs to be on there knees and REPENT and start PRAYING, that is the only hope we have.

Good with a lair and stories teller like him we don't need him in the most wonderful party there is in the United States, he doesn't know what true reporting is so sad you can report the truth, all you can do is tell lies, so sad because President Trump is doing so may wonderful thing for this country but we'll never know because the media is doing nothing but see what they can do to discredit the President and his whole family,
