Boehner: ‘There Is No Republican Party’ Under Trump — It Is ‘Taking a Nap Somewhere’ (Mediaite)

Thursday in Michigan at the Mackinac Policy Conference, former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said there was “no Republican Party” in the era of President Donald Trump.

Boehner said, “There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party. Republican Party is kinda taking a nap somewhere.”

He continued, “Well, you know, Donald Trump, who I know well, was one of my supporters, when I was speaker if I was having a rough week, Trump would call me, pat me on the back, cheer me up, played a lot of golf together. But president? Really? I never quite saw this.”
