After Boehner turned down her show’s invitation, Cross decided to write the former speaker a public “Dear John” letter, addressing his best-selling book, “where you beat your chest about the crazies that exist in the Republican party and chide the Tea Party extremists that existed during your tenure on Capitol Hill.”
And when that Tea Party that you hate so much helped you become House speaker, you became one of the most verbal opponents against the Affordable Care Act. And, in fact, your partisan petulance led to the infamous government shutdown because these extremists, as you now call them, refused to pass the budget that funded Obamacare. But, yes, please say more about these crazies and how you're somehow different. 23 million people who now have healthcare are listening.
Cross went on to point out that while Boehner calls America “a land of immigration,” he aligned with the people he now calls “crazies” to block immigration reform in 2014.
Then there’s Boehner’s hypocrisy on marijuana.
After spending a lifetime criminalizing people for one type of green, you sure were thirsty to get your hands on another type since the legalized cannabis industry reported $10 billion in sales around the time you had that convenient change of heart.
Cross acknowledged that Boehner played golf with President Obama and was polite to him, unlike other Republicans. “But your policies were just as damaging,” she added.
“We're supposed to pat you on the back because you played Dr. Frankenstein for years and the monster you created has begun to cannibalize the entire country?” Cross continued. Maybe even worse, she added, “after all your recent and convenient revelations, you still voted for Trump in 2020.”
Then, after sticking her knife into Boehner, Cross twisted it for her conclusion.
