Former Republican Congressman and current host of MSNBC's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, left the Republican party in July of 2017—around six months after the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
Since then, he's used his show to call out the President's (16,000+ and counting) lies—and Tuesday night was no different.

The national debt under Trump has skyrocketed to over $23 trillion, while the deficit is expected to surpass $1 trillion. The President frequently boasts about the aspects of the economy handed down by Obama, while spending at a level that Republicans would balk at if he were Obama.
People sided with Scarborough's analysis.

Another astonishing achievement of Trump's? He's the first President to be impeached in his first term.
