House Speaker John Boehner astonished audience members at a Colorado fundraiser by referring to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz as a “jackass” on Wednesday.
Wow! No filter Boehner!
At a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, the Ohio Republican quipped that he likes how Cruz’s presidential campaign keeps “that jackass” out of Washington, and from telling Boehner how to do his job, according to The Daily Caller.
After the statement was made, it looked like it rubbed many members the wrong way!
“I don’t think it’s terribly speaker-like, and I think it kind of goes against everything that Reagan ever said about disparaging Republicans,” said Ed MacArthur, the president of Native Excavating, who attended the fundraiser.
Yikes, let’s see how this goes.
