During a recording of his audio narration for an upcoming memoir, former Republican House Speaker John Boehner, of Ohio, took aim at Sen. Ted Cruz, telling the Texas Republican to “go f— himself”, Axios reported Thursday evening.
According to the report, Boehner went off script during the recording for his new work “On The House: A Washington Memoir,” which features a white-haired Boehner holding a glass of wine in a smoke-filled room on the cover.
Boehner, who resigned from Congress in 2015, at one point exclaimed: “Oh, and Ted Cruz, go f— yourself.”
The Ohio Republican recently tweeted that he had been reading his book for the recording with “a glass of something nice” in-hand.
“You can blame the wine for the expletives,” the tweet continues.
The context of Boehner’s remarks was not clear.
