  1. Who cares about Boehner? Where was he when he actually had some power to do the right things?

    1. “Trump’s hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to tell a story that was all speculation — that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to — you know, whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what — I think that’s propaganda.”

    1. @corbeau Trump didn’t want or expect to actually end up in the WH: it was an ego trip and, he hoped, a chance to get some new business deals.

    2. CNN has been exposed for lying and creating fake stories. They also create FEAR and raise the number of Covid-19 cases on purpose to create FEAR and divide US. CNN has lost 1 million subs since yesterday. They were up to about 13.4, they are now down to 12.4. People are waking up.

    3. @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Unfortunately, the Republican party condescended from something great into something very controversial. The corrupt and white supremacists lived blue until the 1990’s when they turned red. We must revert the party back to the times of glory.

    1. @Rick Simon yea downplayed as in they were more important than he made them out to be!

      That is not the same as saying none of those sources have expressed that social distancing is ten times as important as wearing a mask the stance has been since the retraction of faucis mask lie,
      masks aren’t a substitute for social distancing and social distancing isn’t a substitute for masks!

    2. @SagePerception – You Lefties certainly love your creepy Hunter. It’s not surprising. Many on the Left are like him.

  3. But…, but, Mr. Boehner, – you were part of the team who stitched this monster together. Remember that, “Dr. Frankenstein”? Any regrets?

    1. “Regretch…..I’ve….had a fewww….. But the record shows…..I blocked anything from getting done by the Dems….and did it while smashed……MY waaaaaayyyy……”

    2. @John Freedman , If Frankenstein was more intelligent than you and cared more about other people, yes.

      So, what’s it like hiding behind a black person’s picture to post these kinds of stupid troll comments?
      Have the courage to post under your own picture, Bubba…..

  4. And there’s the “on both sides” defense. He’s no different than Bolton. Silent when it mattered, loud when it made him money

    1. Republicans are like terrorists holding America hostage, and, they have their fingers on the racist bomb.

    2. CNN needs to stop worrying about Republicans. Anyhow according to them and liberals they are going down. Focus on Biden and the liberal agenda which is so magnificent you mediocre biased crap so called news channel.

  5. Always when they recognize that they have a huge majority of the crazies they argue that both sides are responsible.

    1. @Michael Morningstar no republicans were not on both sides Lincoln made the Republican party. Witch was the party of abolitionists. Sorry but u dont know history at all.

    2. @Dim Wit i date black girls. Many friends are black. My grandmother was full blooded cherokee. Also the word racist means nothing to me u racist.

    3. @Belly Dancer Em so when did this flip happen? What person changed ideology over night? That doesnt even make sence.

    4. @Justin Lance it took place slowly over decades from about 1930 to 2000. In the mid 20th century, both major parties had liberal and conservative wings

    5. @Justin Lance ahh the old ‘I’m not racist I have black friends’ defence. Maybe you should read a book and learn what racist means then you ignorant racist.

  6. Interesting interview. He sure has changed his tune since the first couple of candid interviews when his book was first released. Must’ve received some serious backlash from the GOP because he has dramatically softened his stance.

  7. DANA: Do you think there should be stricter penalties for people who strangle kittens?
    BOEHNER: Well listen. I think both sides need to come to a bipartisan agreement…

  8. Dana keeps asking him questions as if he is out here for anything other than fun. He isn’t ashamed about any of the malcontent he has caused. Dolla bills for for wine.

    1. EXACTLY!!!
      I thought this guy was decent, HE CLEARLY IS NOT!!!
      WHERE was he during the past 4 years when that BUFFOON was in office???
      NO one should his STINKING BOOK!!!

    2. @Thats not funny Likewise!
      It’s UNBELIEVABLE what has happened to this country ever since Barack Obama got elected.
      If there’s ONE positive thing that has come out of this and is that Barack Obama’s presidency has indeed REVEALED the TRUE nature of these SO-CALLED politicians. NOW, we all KNOW their TRUE nature. I’d NEVER trust a so-called republican again, EVER!!!

  9. I Take it his book is selling well because he sure has changed his tune a lot in just 7 days, those first few interviews he gave actual answers, now its like pulling teeth and im remembering why I despised this rancid filth.

  10. “don’t you want to find some solutions?”

    No I just want to sell my book and point fingers, (but not at myself)

    1. I know. What a loser. Boehner has absolutely no balls. Probably smoked and drank them away. Not contributing anything to this country, when he’s in a position where he could. And calling McConnell “a leader”?
      I nearly choked on my coffee when Boehner said that. What a joke. Maybe a leader of the group trying to *destroy* the USA.

  11. Save yourself 10 minutes. The interview ends with, “Whoever it may be, we’ll see”. Tells you everything you need to know about the man’s integrity, or lack thereof.

    1. Save yourself 10 mins and let’s stop pretending George Bush Republicans are saints, b/c Orangeman

      That’s a really bad argument, and it is sad how many people who know nothing need to hang onto the Orangeman being the worst Republican ever.

      I kind of ‘member George Bush 2 and Cheney starting random conflict that we still have to deal with today. And I also ‘member how Biden voted for that conflict. Along with jailing more “SUPERRRRRRR predators”

  12. “They have to go back to lying and cheating in the shadows, not out in the open. Bring decency back!”

  13. Apparently he chose to make all of his candid comments in the book. No straight talk outside the book, and promoting it is the only reason he was there.

    1. Isn’t it funny how CNN is so desperate for “Orangeman bad” material that they will go to a George Bush type Republican (AKA the people they called WW2 Germans before the Orangeman) in order to trick the lemmings who listen to them?

      I feel pity for CNN/MSNBC/establishment media viewers. They never know when they will fall off a cliff. All they know is they need outrage for something.

      That’s not what I would call fun

  14. If you want to read his book, wait a week and you’ll be able to pick it up for free from a cardboard box outside your local library.

    1. Pretty much. I saw Art of the Deal, battered and propped up against the base of a tree once, yellowed and Twitlers face scratched. People walked their dogs past so they could piss all over it.

    2. @Beeble Brox Word has it that Art of the Steal is in the works, but tRump can’t find a ghost writer with the requisite lack of integrity.

  15. Forget him. (F) him. He helped all of this. He loved the tea party. But It ate him up like it’s going to eat them all up. Hatred will eat them all up. Just watch.

    1. @Madaline Haywood cancel the all star game. Riots are ok. 50/50 voting is good instead of 60/40. The virus is so bad. But this President brings them in on a 20 year high during a pandemic. Yes this is you. I guess everytime releasing untested into america is good. Well they wont need a ID to vote. Guess covid only matters to win. Go china. Sorry my bad. Meant demos

    2. Last time I heard anything from the Tea Party they were being illegaly audited by the IRS under orders from Obama.

    3. @D.O.A_ Unpossibles disagreements with china….. Sorry meant biden…..sorry demos gets your placed burned down. All star game taken away. Covid is so bad everything needs to shut down. Except borders. We need more for cheap labor and no ID votes which is racist. Not allowing illegal votes MLB banned Georgia. Thank god im a country boy

    4. @Mr. Fax really. You didn’t hold tRump accountable for 7 or 8 years and now not even 90 days in you want him to fix everything that went wrong in the last presidency. Get real. He’s fix as much as fast as possible. Hold up gym shoes. Lol.

    5. @Madaline Haywood the border crisis wasn’t created under Trump. Neither was a lot of other problems Biden has put us under and created himself. If you think our country is better off now you’re watching the wrong news channel.
