Boehner Calls Chaffetz a 'Total Phony,' Jim Jordan a 'Legislative Terrorist'

In an interview published Sunday night in Politico, former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) tore into a few of his former Republican colleagues in the House and blamed the increasing divide between the right and the left on the rise of talk radio and social media. The previous chairman, Jason Chaffetz, had abruptly announced his resignation from Congress; House conservatives had hoped that Jim Jordan, a senior member on the committee, might pursue the chairmanship.

John Boehner, the former Speaker of the House, has been out of Washington since he retired in October 2015 to his home in West Chester, Ohio. "F-- Jordan. F-- [Jason] Chaffetz". Fox News said Chaffetz's contributor role would be to "offer political analysis across FNC and FOX Business Network's (FBN) daytime and primetime programming". Chaffetz stepped down in 2017, and is now a contributer to Fox News.

In an effort to calm things down in 2015, Boehner claims he called Hannity up and told him, "Listen, you're nuts". According to Alberta, Jordan was "embodiment of the brinkmanship and betrayal that roiled the House Republican majority and made Boehner's life miserable".

Boehner's diatribe wasn't limited to Chaffetz and Jordan. "A terrorist. A legislative terrorist". For instance, he called North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows an "idiot". Boehner took full advantage of his non-politician status to unleash on conservative media figures who now longer pose a threat to him - suggesting that numerous right-wing heavy weights are idiots. But the 13-term Republican, who tangoed with both President Obama and the insurgent Tea Party, is no longer holding back his thoughts on several conservative media figures. "And suddenly they're beating the living s- out of me", Boehner told Alberta, directing most of his ire at Hannity. Fuzzy Zoeller asks me.

"Perplexing- former Speaker John Boehner now bad mouthing some conservative commentators", O'Reilly said on Twitter. So far, Chaffetz, Jordan, and Meadows haven't responded to being described as "assholes", "terrorist", and "idiot" respectively.
