John Boehner, The Original Orange Man Bad Speaks

John Boehner, former Speaker of the House and Republican Congressman for the Ohio’s 8th District, has written a book. The book, “On the House: A Washington Memoir” is perfectly Boehner, the original Orange Man Bad. On the cover, Boehner is shown with a glass of Merlot. If it had featured a box of tissues, it would have perfectly portrayed Boehner’s speakership.

John Boehner, for those with short term memory loss, was an awful Congressweenie. The rise of the Tea Party came in the middle of his tenure in Congress and he despised the Tea Party types. He was a spineless Rino, more interested in cutting deals with Dems and scooting off to the golf course, than he was in holding to Republican ideals. Which, by the way, he probably cannot define to this day.

Long before Donald Trump ran for and won the Presidency, John Boehner was known for his “orange skin”. In 2010, the Daily Caller noted:

n January, America will pass another milestone on the road to full equality when Ohio Republican Rep. John Boehner becomes the first orange-American Speaker of the House.

Boehner’s unique skin has made him a target of liberal mockery, and talk of his tan has often eclipsed discussion of what he actually says or does. Even President Obama has gotten in on the fun, joking at the 2009 White House Correspondence Dinner that he and Boehner “have a lot in common. He is a person of color—although not a color that appears in the natural world.”

The original Orange Man Bad.

Boehner did a cut and run in the fall of 2015. His leadership was contentious and rather than face a fight, he retired from Congress. Known for crying frequently, he brought a tissue box to his resignation speech.

What is Boehner doing now? Well, besides dumping on the current crop of Republicans, he pushes cannabis. He is poised to make millions (not there is anything wrong with that) on a product he used to be against.

CNN is a little to gleeful about “On the House”:

John Boehner rips Donald Trump for “shoveling bullshit” about the 2020 election and blames Trump for the Capitol breach? Right? Trump yelled at Boehner’s aide, years ago, for giving him the wrong names of their golf partners. I would yell too. That’s what aides are supposed to do, get stuff right.

Don Young of Alaska held a ten-inch knife to Boehner’s throat and doesn’t deny the story:

Boehner tells some well-worn Washington stories, including saying that Alaska Rep. Don Young had pulled a 10-inch knife and held it to his throat just off the House floor after a Boehner speech attacking earmarks.

“‘Don’t you ever do that again,’ he growled,” Boehner wrote, adding that he responded by looking Young “right square in his eyes and said, ‘F*** you.’”

Young once told Politico that Boehner’s account of the incident is “mostly true.”

John Boehner saves his most blunt criticism for Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and goes off script to do so:

John Boehner has been going off script while recording the audio version of his new memoir, using expletives and asides not in the book — such as the former Republican House speaker saying, “Oh, and Ted Cruz, go f**k yourself.”

In the past, Boehner has called Cruz “Lucifer in the Flesh”. From the book, On the House:

“By 2013 the chaos caucus in the House had built up their own power base thanks to fawning right-wing media and outrage-driven fundraising cash,” Boehner wrote in “On the House: A Washington Memoir,” a portion of which was published in Politico on Friday. “And now they had a new head lunatic leading the way, who wasn’t even a House member. There is nothing more dangerous than a reckless a–hole who thinks he is smarter than everyone else. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Senator Ted Cruz.”

Oh, meowch. Ted Cruz replied in perfect Ted Cruz fashion:

“The Swamp is unhappy. I wear with pride his drunken, bloviated scorn. Please don’t cry,” Cruz tweeted in response to a video to Boehner’s insults.

John Boehner is not missed. Donald Trump showed us the way. We are not going back to trying to negotiate with people who despise us. Boehner is the original orange man bad. I cannot even begin to imagine anyone buying his book. He’ll probably hand it out at his “invest in pot and make millions” seminars. The booby prize.

    Another alleged republican becoming a leftist tool. As my late mother-in-law used to say “there’s no fool like an old fool” and that sure fits the Ohio weeper to a tee.

    I guess he’s applying to be the new chairman of the Lincoln Project. Is there any doubt who he voted for last November?

  • Taylor says:

    Hey crybaby, The Lincoln Project called they are looking for a new chairman.
