Trump never had any intention of fighting the RINO establishment. His goal has always been to hijack it for his own self-aggrandizing purposes. This has become all the more obvious now that the quintessential RINO establishmentarian John Boehner has effectively endorsed him:
“You can call me boner, beaner, jackass, happy to answer to almost anything,” said former Speaker of the House John Boehner as he took the stage at CEMEX Auditorium on Wednesday evening. Boehner joined David M. Kennedy, faculty director and history professor emeritus, in a talk hosted by Stanford in Government (SIG) and the Stanford Speakers Bureau.
Although jackass works, liberal, statist, and Obama collaborator would be more precise appellations.
Kennedy asked Boehner to be frank given that the event was not being broadcasted, and the former Speaker responded in kind. When specifically asked his opinions on Ted Cruz, Boehner made a face, drawing laughter from the crowd.
“Lucifer in the flesh,” the former speaker said. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b**** in my life.”
Boehner described other Republican candidates as friends. In particular, the former speaker said he has played golf with Donald Trump for years and that they were “texting buddies.”
Polishing his liberal establishment bona fides, Boehner proclaimed that he would vote for Trump in the general election but not Ted Cruz, the only conservative in the race. (Last month he said he would support his fellow liberal RINO Paul Ryan at a contested convention.)
Although unwilling to openly embrace their policies, he praised the communist Bernie Sanders as a nice guy and Shrillary as accomplished and smart, and confirmed that he gets along well with Obama.
It isn’t just Cruz; the dislike conservatives in general feel for Boehner is heartily returned:
Throughout the talk, Boehner frequently referenced the Freedom Caucus as the “knuckleheads” and “goofballs” in Congress.
The cruel irony is that some who have not been paying attention or who are not thinking clearly actually believe they are somehow rebelling against Boehner et al.
