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.
