In an interview with FOX News, Speaker John Boehner made a pretty shocking claim. Boehner said that he "was the Tea Party before there was a Tea Party". Um, really? Have the lights from the tanning bed fried his brain? Glenn watched the interview last night and simply couldn't believe it.
"I was the Tea Party before there was a Tea Party," Boehner said. "I understand their concerns, I understand their frustrations. But we have a Constitution that we abide by and we’re going to live by it. And that means we have separate, equal branches of government. And whether people like it or not, Barack Obama is going to be the president for the next two years."
Glenn couldn't believe it. He took to Facebook to address the comments.
Mr. Speaker, what are you even talking about?!
Are you saying the tea party is nothing but nut jobs that don't understand the constitution? Are you claiming that we want to usurp the power of the constitution?
We are the ones begging YOU to follow it. For the president to follow. HOW DARE YOU use us to be elected and then spit on us.
This group of hypocrites and progressive sell outs do not represent me. Not just by my choice but by their own words. Is there ANYONE that will stand for honor, decency and the rule of law?
Listen to this at the twelve minute mark. Btw, thanks Fox News for asking this with 30 seconds left in the interview.
