Ex-spokesman Boehner accuses Trump of "bloody" violence within the Capitol, Trump replies: "Did he drink?"
Former Republican House Speaker John Boehner beats up former President Donald Trump and accuses him of instigating the "bloody Capitol uprising" in his new book, On The House: A Washington Memoir.
In addition to slamming Trump, Boehner reportedly shot several members of Congress, Fox News Channel personalities, and even Fox News founder, the late Roger Ailes.
The Daily Mail reports that Boehner's main target appeared to be Trump. He describes the January 6 uprising as "one of the deepest points in American democracy".
He also says the Republican Party will be taken over by Whack Jobs.
About Trump and the uprising in the Capitol, Boehner says: “I admit, I was not prepared for what came after the elections. Trump refused to accept the results and fueled the flames of conspiracy that turned to violence in the seat of our democracy. the building I once headed. "
And it's Trump's fault for "instigating this bloody uprising only for selfish reasons, immortalized by the bull **** he'd shoveled since losing a fair election last November."

Trump, who did not retire from a fight, responded to the allegations by emailing the New York Times, referring to Boehner's love for red wine, allegedly known in Washington DC, by asking, "Did he drink when he made this statement? ? Just another RINO who couldn't do the job! "
Trump spokesman Jason Miller did not hold back either. Miller called Boehner a "swamp creature" and accused the former spokesman of preferring "communist China".
Boehner's lobby company represents the Chinese embassy in the United States.
Boehner was quick to reprimand Republican lawmakers for helping Trump question the results of the 2020 presidential election.
These included Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, as well as House members Kevin McCarthy, Ohioan Jim Jordan, whom he described as a "legislative terrorist," and outspoken Georgia Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Boehner quipped: “Some of those involved didn't surprise me in the least. The legislative terrorism that I saw as a speaker had now promoted actual terrorism. "
One of Boehner's other favorite targets appears to be Senator Ted Cruz. Boehner described Cruz as "dangerous" and "a ruthless hole that believes he's smarter than everyone else".
Boehner didn't stop there. He added, "I get on with almost everyone, but I've never worked with a wretched son of a bitch in my life." He also called Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh".
The cherry on the cake for Boehner came in the audio version of the book, which forced Boehner to comment, "Oh, and Ted Cruz, go yourself."
During his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Cruz took the humorous route. He began to joke that Boehner's suggestion was, in fact, not a request that he could fulfill.
"You know, John Boehner made some news yesterday," said Cruz. “He suggested I do something that is anatomically impossible.

Boehner clashes with commentators from Fox News and other conservatives
Boehner claims that Fox News Channel founder Roger Ailes told him that Obama, the Clintons and George Soros "tried to destroy him" and that he had built a security room in his home.
Boehner said of the allegations, “I thought I could get him to control the madmen and instead spoke to the club's president. One of us was crazy. Maybe it was me. "
He also told the story of former Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann who wanted to join the House Ways and Means Committee.
Boehner claims when it didn't, she threatened to go to Fox News personalities like Hannity and conservative radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin to tell them how he treated the people who had allowed Republicans take back the house . & # 39;
Boehner currently serves on the advisory board of Acreage Holdings, a company that grows, processes, and distributes cannabis in 11 states.
"On The House: A Washington Memoir" will go on sale April 13th.
John Boehner will go down in history as one of the worst Republican speakers in history. He's weak, shy and what's up with all that crying John?
I wasn't around once when he smelled of cigarette smoke and wine breath and more.
