John Boehner Criticizes The 2016 Presidential Candidate Field

Recently, former Speaker of the House John Boehner addressed a crowd at the SALT Conference in Las Vegas. There, he took a few shots at the 2016 field of presidential candidates.

CNN correspondent Phil Mattingly tweeted Boehner's statement about Hillary Clinton writing, "Boehner says he 'would not be surprised at all' if Clinton 'has to withdraw' and Biden 'parachutes in.'" Since starting her presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has been under an ongoing FBI investigation for her use of a private email address and server while she worked under President Barack Obama as secretary of state.

In addition, Boehner hasn't been shy in criticizing former presidential candidate Ted Cruz by calling him "Lucifer in the flesh" last month. In 2013, Cruz led the government shut down, which Boehner called the "dumbest thing I ever saw." Boehner added, "I got criticized by some Satanic organization for giving Lucifer a bad name."

Boehner also said of Donald Trump, he's "clearly not conservative." Of Democrat Bernie Sanders, he said, "He's an old curmudgeon."
