Believe it or not, there are still some Republicans who refuse to face the facts about what Donald Trump has done to the GOP and America — but former GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner isn’t one of them.
Earlier this week, Boehner gave a speech on Thursday and he appropriately trashed his fellow Republicans for “taking a nap” and not doing a damn thing while Trump runs around unsupervised and destroys everything he touches. Boehner even went as far as to say that the Republican Party no longer exists now that Trump is in the White House. With more honesty than any of his colleagues can handle, Boehner said:
There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party.”
The ex-Speaker of the House did not hesitate to drag his own political colleagues as he slammed them for being spineless and not doing their jobs. He also trashed everyone who voted for Trump, directly stating that the former reality television star had no business being president. Boehner said:
The Republican Party is kinda taking a nap somewhere. Donald Trump, who I know well, was one of my supporters when I was speaker, I was having a rough week, Trump would call me, pat me on the back, cheer me up. We played a lot of golf together. But president, really? … The two most surprised people in the entire world that night were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton thought she was gonna win, Donald Trump thought he was gonna lose.”
You can watch this brilliant moment below:
Boehner is right. His Republican buddies have been eerily silent as Trump’s incompetence screws everything up and the president becomes exposed for more criminal activities on a daily basis. It truly seems like the GOP has lost any sense of standards, and we’re happy that at least one Republican isn’t afraid to say it.
