Even as he praised President Trump for his successful trip abroad and his tough stance on ISIS, former House Speaker John Boehner told an audience at an energy conference in Houston on Thursday, “Everything else he’s done (in office) has been a complete disaster. He’s still learning how to be president.”
Pleased not to be POTUS himself, Boehner said, “I wake up every day, drink my morning coffee and say, `Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.’ I drink red wine. I smoke cigarettes. I golf. I cut my own grass. I iron my own clothes. And I’m not willing to give all that up to be president.”
White House social media director Dan Scavino shot back at Boehner in a tweet Friday, calling the emotional former speaker a “disaster” himself and posted video of Boehner fighting back tears.

Claiming that the two men have been friends for the past 15 years, Boehner apparently has a hard time accepting that Trump is now our president and said that he shouldn’t be permitted to tweet late at night.
Boehner also reportedly called Republican tax reform efforts “just a bunch of happy talk” and said that the border adjustment tax is “deader than a doornail.”
Boehner’s pessimism was palpable regarding the repeal and replacement of ObamaCare. He noted, “Republicans never ever agree on health care.”
Pointing out that impeachment talk is a great way to incense Trump supporters, Boehner stated his belief that when it comes to Democrats’ accusations of collusion between Trump staffers and Russia, “they need to get to the bottom of this.”
