MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough officially left the Republican Party and registered as an unaffiliated voter Thursday in his home state of Connecticut.
Joe Scarborough announced his new voter registration status Thursday on Twitter after threatening that he would leave the GOP several times.
Scarborough’s tweet mocked the so-called “birthers” who demanded to see former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate after questioning whether he was born in the U.S.
Scarborough has been an outspoken critic of Trump’s presidency — and the Republican Party that elected him — since Trump won against Hillary Clinton in November.

I became an independent today. Here I am holding a copy of Donald Trump's birth certificate, proving he was born in Nambia. pic.twitter.com/9xZ6eh7Fr2

The destruction of the Republican Party will be part Trump's political legacy, and the least damning. https://t.co/2WySrCjP2i
