In his new book, former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said that he doubted that he could get re-elected in today’s Republican Party. Then, he added that President Ronald Reagan could not get re-elected either. Today’s Grand Old Party (GOP) is rendering itself in half. There is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who thought he could tame the tiger, and there is Donald Trump, the tiger.
Boehner’s new book On the House: A Washington Memoir, is an interesting collection of stories in a behind-the-scenes look at Congress, according to The Washington Post. Apparently, there will be enough material for a Washington Memoir II. At a recent Republican National Committee (RNC) event, Trump was trying to retain his power. He called McConnell a “Dumb son-of-a-bitch” in his speech.
Reporters have been hearing from sources inside of the closed event for top Republican donors. This is what they told The Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey:
‘“If we had a real leader instead of Mitch, who is a total stone cold (sic) loser, if we had a real leader, he would have never, ever accepted the results of that election,” Trump said. Mocked Sasse, Romney and others but saved the nastiness material for McConnell.’
Trump went after Kentucky senator claiming that he had not expressed enough gratitude for the ex-president hiring McConnell’s wife as Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao:
‘New: Former President Trump attacked Mitch McConnell as a “dumb son of a bitch” in his speech at the RNC donor retreat tonight, per an attendee.’
The former president sounded as if he was giving his 2016 presidential election in this, the year of 2021.
Trump also had a “sir” story that was clearly inaccurate. More disturbingly he said that the coronavirus should be named after him, “Trumpcine.” Perhaps, we should just name the actual virus after him, the Trump-19 pandemic:
Forty-five attacked McConnell during his speech at the RNC donor retreat held at Mar-a-Lago:
‘Trump rant on McConnell at RNC was brutal, per attendee. He took credit for Mr. McConnell’s margin of win. “Did he ever say thank you to me? No. I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you to me? No.” He said he feels “sorry” for her, said, “She’s suffered so greatly.”‘
The event was so closed that even Ohio’s Josh Mandel was escorted out Yahoo News reported:
‘Mandel and Timken have long been extremely pro-Trump and both are vying to get the former president’s endorsement — which could be the deciding factor in who wins the race to replace Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who recently announce he will not run for reelection.’
Twitter world went crazy when they saw what Trump said. Take a look at some of our favorites below:
