"President Trump's Republicans have devolved into a party without a cause, dominated by a leader hopelessly ill-informed about the basics of conservatism, USA history and the Constitution", Scarborough wrote. He made a final speech on the House floor "foolishly predicting" the GOP would be the champions of future balanced budgets and "restrained foreign policy".

Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman from Florida, hosts the MSNBC show "Morning Joe". Then last fall, Trump demolished both the Republican and Democratic establishments. He was obviously wrong. He believes Republicans have a "monopoly" over the government and have wasted every opportunity they've been given since he left Congress in 2001. Republican leaders said nothing.

In his WaPo piece he accuses Trump of acting like dictators Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong because Trump called the media "the enemy of the people". And as the commander in chief insulted allies while embracing autocratic thugs, Republicans who spent a decade supporting wars of choice remained quiet.

At the same time, "Republican lawmakers will stand by a long-time Democrat who switched parties after the promotion of a racist theory about [former President] Barack Obama gave him standing in Lincoln's once-proud party", Scarborough wrote.

"It is a dying party that I can no longer defend", Scarborough, who plans to register as an independent, wrote in the op-ed.

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham has long predicted that the 150-year duopoly of the Republicans and Democrats will end. He argued that no Republican president in history would even be able to recognize their party. In just two years, their majority fell and Obama took the White House.

He declared that Trump will destroy the party he once represented.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took a shot at Fox News rival Sean Hannity on Monday, calling his nightly program "state-run television" during a segment about the latest developments in the investigation into links between the Donald Trump campaign and Russian Federation. When that day mercifully arrives, the two-party duopoly that has strangled American politics for nearly two centuries will finally come to an end.
