John Boehner, the man we had all wished would never be heard from again, is capitalizing on his contempt for Donald Trump. Any Republican who wishes to gain reverence with the left and main stream media knows how – go against the administration. Criticizing Trump is the best way for a loser to remain somewhat in the limelight.
In a recent interview Boehner praised the passage of the Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, before adding that “everything else he’s done has been a complete disaster.”
When asked about his own possible presidential ambitions, Boehner quickly shrugged off the idea. “I don’t want to be president. I drink red wine. I smoke cigarettes. I golf. I cut my own grass. I iron my own clothes. And I’m not willing to give all that up to be president.”
This of course comes from the same man who was unable to pass tax reform, unable to end needless wars, unable to stand up against Barack Obama’s unconstitutional use of executive orders, unable to whip up support in his own party to defeat Obama in 2012, and before he retired in 2015, was facing so little faith among the American people that he was forced to resign.
Oh yeah, he was also repeatedly unable to hold back the tears. Let’s not forget that even with his tough talk now, Boehner was a big blubbering baby when he was Speaker of the House.
