John Boehner sniffled and cried his way through an interview with CBS’s Face the Nation days after announcing he would resign as Speaker of the House. Boehner began yelling about how the conservatives in the Republican Party are “false prophets” and “unrealistic”. He also said that Pope Francis visiting the US had helped to “clear the picture” and allow him to make his decision.
Boenher was also in tears as the Pope spoke to Congress and said in the interview that he was a “mess” when Pope Francis asked him to pray for him. He also insisted the government would not shut down in the fight to block funding to Planned Parenthood.
