House Speaker John Boehner winks at Politico’s Jake Sherman at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, Tuesday. Sherman had asked Boehner whether had ideas for border legislation. “I’ve got lots of them,” Boehner said. Image by J. Scott Applewhite via AP.
My first reaction: Do your job you fking wanker. You don’t play BS middle school games with the lives of desperate children.
