Joe Scarborough was once a Republican Congressman representing Florida. But since leaving the House of Representatives, he has been hosting the MSNBC morning program Morning Joe.
Now he is asking for forgiveness.
In the wake of the Russia investigation, the Mueller report and now Special Counsel Robert Mueller testifying before the Senate, Scarborough is regretting some life choices.
He took to Twitter and posted:
Jesus, forgive me for ever being a Republican.— Joe Scarborough (@Joe Scarborough)1563975854.0
MoveOn.org heard his prayer and passed it on to The Good God Above.
@JoeNBC @thegoodgodabove, you have a request.— MoveOn (@MoveOn)1563975974.0
Ask and ye shall receive.
@MoveOn @JoeNBC Forgiven.— God (@God)1563976027.0
But not everyone was as forgiving as the Lord.
Back in 2015, Scarborough and his co-host and now wife, Mika Brzezinski, were fans of Republican candidate Donald Trump. Over time the MSNBC duo soured on the President.
In 2017, Scarborough announced he was leaving the GOP and instead became an independent.
Now Scarborough and Brzezinski are some of Trump's more vocal critics.
But many say the harm was already done.

The Mueller testimony before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees took place on Wednesday to great fanfare. And despite claims by President Donald Trump that Mueller totally exonerated him, the hearings indicated otherwise.
