Boehner: 'Thank God I'm not in the middle of this'

“Every day I’d watch it and was like, ‘Thank God I’m not in the middle of this,'” he told Cincinnati’s WCPO in an exclusive interview. “It was the most bizarre political year that we’ve seen in 100 years.”

The former Ohio lawmaker said he has no regrets about walking away from Congress in October 2015.

“There’s nothing I would change about when I left or how I left,” he said.

Boehner likened President-elect Donald Trump to a modern-day Teddy Roosevelt, calling the billionaire businessman a “larger than life” populist who wants to do “big things.”
