During Tuesday night’s episode of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough made a somewhat surprising revelation: he’s leaving the Republican party and registering as an independent. 

Leading up to his proclamation, he cited the numerous instances of racism from Donald Trump and said elected Republicans “time and time and time again look the other way.” 

Watch as he explains his decision and asks, “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?”
