Former House Speaker John Boehner (R) is unloading on “political terrorists” in the Republican party.
“I just never saw a guy who spent more time tearing things apart and never building anything, never putting anything together,” Boehner said of Jordan.
When it came to Cruz, Boehner said, “I don’t beat anybody up. It’s not really my style. Except that jerk.”
He continued, “Perfect symbol, you know, of getting elected, make a lot of noise, draw a lot of attention to yourself, raise a lot of money, which means you’re gonna go make more noise, raise more money, and it’s really, it’s unfortunate.”

The preview of Boehner’s comments comes just days before his new book, “On the House: A Washington Memoir,” is set to be released.
Boehner argues Trump “incited that bloody insurrection for nothing more than selfish reasons, perpetuated by the bullsh*t he’d been shoveling since he lost a fair election the previous November.”
“He claimed voter fraud without any evidence, and repeated those claims, taking advantage of the trust placed in him by his supporters and ultimately betraying that trust,” Boehner writes.
He claims Trump’s “refusal to accept the result of the election” not only “cost Republicans the Senate but led to mob violence.”
Boehner resigned from Congress in 2015.
