While promoting his new book, John Boehner has been more than willing to criticize Republicans like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. The former Speaker, though, also has critiques for some of the Democrats he worked with. Boehner took a weird shot at Barack Obama during a Sunday appearance on Meet the Press.
Former House Speaker John Boehner (R) admitted he voted for former President Donald Trump in the 2020 general election even while Trump continued to spread falsehoods about the voting process.
“I voted for Donald Trump. I thought that his policies, by and large, mirrored the policies that I believed in. I thought the choices for the Supreme Court were top notch. At the end of the day, who gets nominated to the federal courts is really the most important thing a President does,” Boehner told TIME ahead of the publication of his book On the House: A Washington Memoir.
Speaking to USA Today, former House Speaker John Boehner (R) said former President Donald Trump “abused” his loyalists, including after January 6, the day a mob of his supporters, spurred by his lies about the 2020 general election, stormed the United States Capitol in a bid to overturn the results. The attack resulted in five deaths, including that of a Capitol Police Officer who later died of his injuries.
In the 245 years of American independence, only 4 presidents have ever been impeached. Amazingly enough, though, it has happened to 2 or the last 5 people to hold the highest office in the land.
Donald Trump, of course, was impeached twice. He likely would have been convicted the second time if it wasn’t for the hyper-partisan nature of the day.
In his new book, former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R) criticizes former President Donald Trump and blames him for inciting the Capitol riot of January 6, which took place when a mob of Trump’s supporters stormed the United States Capitol in a bid to overturn the 2020 general election results. Boehner says Trump bears responsibility for the partisan divide in Congress as well as much of the tension of the current political moment.
Things in Washington DC have been partisan for a very long time. But considering that Donald Trump’s term ended with an insurrection on the Capitol, it’s fair to say that the partisan divide has grown over the last 4 years.
We keep hearing about splits in the Republican ranks between those who have sold their souls to the extremist arm of the party loyal to Trumpism, embodying white supremacist and anti-democratic values, and those more traditional Republicans who insist on sharply differentiating the ideology of conservativism from Trumpism.
"If the party doesn’t learn lessons and change based on what’s gone on for the last year and a half, I think it’s going to be just catastroph[ic]."
John Boehner put his terrible political instincts on public display again by claiming that he would be surprised if Hillary Clinton had to withdraw from the Democratic nomination and be replaced by Joe Biden.
Ted Cruz is so despised that even Satanists are insulted by John Boehner's comparison of Cruz to Lucifer.
Besides calling Ted Cruz Lucifer in the flesh, former Speaker of the House John Boehner has confirmed that many of the beliefs that Democrats hold about the state of the Republican Party are correct.
TransCanada's Russ Girling accused Obama of "choosing misplaced symbolism over merit and science, and allowed rhetoric to win out over reason"
The only difference between the extremists and Ryan is how soon, and for how long, they are able to shut down the government.
There is plenty of blame to go around. No small share of it attaches itself to Boehner, who let the crazies take over the House on his watch

John Boehner's approval rating went up by 12 points with Independents and 11 points with Democrats after he announced that he was quitting Congress, but his disapproval rating remains higher than his approval rating. It's clear that the American people are happy to see Boehner go.
Speaker of the House John Boehner has lost to President Obama on every major crisis, so it isn't surprising that Boehner is planning one final cave on the raising the debt ceiling before he leaves office.
