Sean Hannity has fired back at RINO poster child John Boehner after he pretty much called the Fox News host a “right-wing idiot.”
But it wasn’t only Hannity that the former House speaker took aim at. Unconstrained by politics in his retirement, the “Republican” fired on GOP members in the media and in Congress.
“[Mark Levin] went really crazy right and got a big audience, and he dragged [Sean] Hannity to the dark side. He dragged Rush to the dark side. And these guys—I used to talk to them all the time. And suddenly they’re beating the living shit out of me.” he told Politico. “I had a conversation with Hannity, probably about the beginning of 2015. I called him and said, ‘Listen, you’re nuts.’ We had this really blunt conversation. Things were better for a few months, and then it got back to being the same-old, same-old. Because I wasn’t going to be a right-wing idiot.”
Hannity shot back on Twitter saying “John were you sober when you said this? That conversation never happened. I’m sorry you are bitter and u failed!”

Boehner saved his harshest criticism for his former Congressional colleagues.
He called Rep. Trey Gowdy “my guy, even though he doesn’t know how to dress” but was far less kind to Rep. Jim Jordan and former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, now a Fox News contributor.
“F**k Jordan. F**k Chaffetz. They’re both a**h**es,” he said.
He called Chaffetz a “total phony” whose main focus is to promote himself.
“With Chaffetz,” he said. “it’s always about Chaffetz.”
But that was kind compared to what he said about Jordan.
“Jordan was a terrorist as a legislator going back to his days in the Ohio House and Senate,” he said. “A terrorist. A legislative terrorist.”
Rep. Jordan responded to Boehner’s attack in a statement to Politico.
“Oh, my goodness. I feel sorry for the guy if he’s that bitter about a guy coming here and doing what he told the voters he was gonna do. Wow. I feel bad for him,” he said. “But in the end, we were not doing what the voters elected us to do and what we told them we were going to do. We just weren’t. And I would argue the same thing is happening now.”
Boehner, who many don’t consider to be a Republican himself, accused President Trump of not being a Republican and said the party has no leader, despite being in control of every branch of government.
“Donald Trump’s not a Republican. He’s not a Democrat. He’s a populist. He doesn’t have an ideological bone in his body,” he said, adding that the end of his speakership will be remembered as “the end of the two-party system.”
