John Boehner Slams ‘Right-Wing Idiot’ Sean Hannity For Going To The ‘Dark Side’

In an interview with Politico published Monday, former House Speaker John Boehner blasted his own party and unleashed hell on conservative media figures, calling out radio talk show hosts Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh for further polarizing America.

Boehner (R-Ohio) says he used to be friendly with Fox News host Sean Hannity and conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, but argued that “the two idiots went over to the dark side.”

“Mark Levin went really crazy right and got a big audience, and he dragged [Sean] Hannity to the dark side. He dragged Rush to the dark side. And these guys—I used to talk to them all the time. And suddenly they’re beating the living shit out of me,” Bohner said as he seated in his favorite recliner, lights another cigarette, Politico reports.

“I had a conversation with Hannity, probably about the beginning of 2015. I called him and said, ‘Listen, you’re nuts.’ We had this really blunt conversation. Things were better for a few months, and then it got back to being the same-old, same-old. Because I wasn’t going to be a right-wing idiot.”

Boehner also described the Donald Trump presidency as “more of a symptom than the cause” of the intense political climate, adding that cable news and social media have increased the ideological firefights in America.

He also condemned “media echo chambers” and suggested it is one of the reasons for low-information voting.

“It was modern-day media, and social media, that kept pushing people further right and further left. People started to figure out … they could choose where to get their news. And so what do people do? They choose places they agree with, reinforcing the divide,” said Boehner.

The Fox News propagandist fired back at Boehner, disputing the former speaker’s remarks.

“John were you sober when you said this? That conversation never happened. I’m sorry you are bitter and u failed!” Hannity wrote on Twitter.
