MSNBC “Morning Joe” (a pitiful show if ever one existed with two morons for the price of one hosting it) and former Republican (RINO) congressman Joe Scarborough announced that he was leaving the Republican Party (good riddance), partly because of its loyalty to President Donald J.

Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 39,218 confirmed cases, 1,424 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
