TMP Reports:

Attendees at a Republican fundraiser in Colorado Wednesday say that House Speaker John Boehner called Sen. Ted Cruz a “jackass,” the Daily Caller reported

Two of the attendees — one going on record with his name — told the Daily Caller that Boehner referred to the Texas Republican as a jackass during his remarks. In their accounts, Boehner said that the 2016 p

residential race kept “that jackass” away from Washington.

The event was a fundraiser for Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO) in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Cruz has long had a reputation for being a thorn in Boehner’s side, having led a government shutdown over Obamacare for 2013 and publicly causing leadership headaches on various occasions.

The Daily Caller said it reached out to to Boehner, Cruz and Tipton’s press offices for comment.

TPM sent a follow-up request for comment to Boehner’s office, which has not been returned.

  1. TruthUncensorted – Just a thought: Everytime I click on one of your links I get a popup, another full-page popup, a share page pop up, followed by yet another popup. Seriously guys I hardly want to come read a page anymore! Tone it down please.

  2. Boehner is the one that needs to be out of Washington DC …he hasn’t been a good leader & sides with Obama & hasn’t done anything that we the people elected him & the Republicans to do & Cruz called out Mitch McConnell for lying & Mitch did lie & Cruz was right to call the RINO out on it . This is why we need term limits & maybe the elected would listen to the voters instead of doing what the RINO’s want.

  3. Mr.Cruz .. You have developed a habit of all talk-no-action and if it continues one of these low-lifes (McConnell,,, Boehner) will get you. Start now to get rid of them .. put the campaign on hold .. 15 months is a long time and you will do “light Years” better in regard to respect if known as the person responsible for restoring leadership to the GOP. Based on Trump’s rising tide centered at restoring our leadership … you are assured a big jump in your supporters
