Chad’s Morning Brief: John Boehner Called Ted Cruz a Jackass
Here are some of the issues that will be discussed on today’s edition of The Chad Hasty Show.
Speaker John Boehner Calls Out Ted Cruz
Speaker John Boehner isn't a fan of Senator Ted Cruz it seems. According to the Daily Caller, Boehner shocked many when he called Cruz a "jackass".
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.
That remark rubbed some attendees 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.
“It’s becoming very disturbing to me that we can’t have good, polite conversation,” MacArthur said. “It all has to be at the throat.”
But MacArthur added: “I do believe he’s got the right to say it.”
Another Steamboat Springs resident confirmed Boehner’s remark: “I about fell on the floor.”
“To build coalitions to work together in Washington, D.C., you don’t start it out by calling your colleague a ‘jackass,'” she said.
I love how politicians act upset because Cruz supposedly shows a lack of decorum, but you won't see any establishment types calling out Boehner for his comment.
I doubt that Senator Cruz took any offense to being called a jackass by Speaker Boehner. Hell, he probably wears it as a badge of honor. Either way, it shows that Boehner doesn't understand why Ted Cruz fights the way he fights. It's also another example of how the establishment is out of touch with many conservatives.
