Former Republican House Speaker John Boehner declares the Trump is a disaster. No kidding. If citizens read my book, How to Select an American President by James A. George with James A. Rodger (c) 2017 Archway Publishing, they will be better equipped at making the right choice the next time.
Trump's failings begin with his character and behavioral flaws that diligent voters and press could have identified. The Republican Party failed to vet and screen out this failed candidate. Next, they tried to cover up his glaring flaws in a state of denial.
“Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” Boehner said. “He’s still learning how to be president.”
Boehner, who backed the businessman during the presidential campaign, criticized the Trump’s late-night tweets and said he hadn’t imagined him becoming commander-in-chief.
The former speaker, who retired from Congress in 2015, suggested investigations into Russian interference in the election were necessary but said talk of impeaching Trump would only boost the president’s political support.
“I don’t know why either of these [2016 presidential] campaigns were talking to Russians, but they need to get to the bottom of this,” he said. “The crazy left-wing Democratic colleagues of mine bringing up impeachment talks … talk of impeachment is the best way to rile up Trump supporters. Remember, impeachment is not a legal process; it’s a political process.”
Boehner also said he thought a border adjustment tax, favored by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), was “deader than a doornail” and called the prospect of tax reform just “happy talk.”
Since leaving office, Boehner has joined a D.C. lobbying firm and the board of tobacco giant Reynolds American, Inc. He told the energy conference he has no regrets about leaving Congress.
“I wake up every day, drink my morning coffee and say hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,” he said."
I am happy for you John and happy that we don't have to deal with you too.
