Former GOP House Speaker John Boehner calls fellow Republican Jim Jordan a 'political terrorist'
  • Boehner described several fellow Republicans as "political terrorists," including Rep. Jim Jordan.
  • "I never saw a guy who spent more time tearing things apart ― never building anything," he said.
  • In his book, Boehner seemed relieved that he didn't have to interact with Trump while in office.
When asked by reporter John Dickerson who would fall under his definition of a political terrorist, Jordan's name immediately sprang up.

"Jim Jordan especially, my colleague from Ohio," he replied. "I just never saw a guy who spent more time tearing things apart ― never building anything, never putting anything together."

Jordan, who was first elected to Congress in 2006, has become well-known for his verbal jousting with Democrats on both the Oversight and Judiciary Committees, along with his staunch defense of former President Donald Trump.

In the same interview, Boehner went after GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, whom he calls a "jerk" and describes as an attention seeker.

"Perfect symbol, you know, of getting elected, making a lot of noise, draw a lot of attention to yourself, raise a lot of money, which means you're gonna go make more noise, raise more money — it's really unfortunate," he said.
