Exclusive–John Boehner Embarrassed: His Whip Team Couldn’t Find Votes to Reelect Him Speaker Last Week

House Speaker John Boehner had been planning to call up on the House floor last week a measure from Rep.

It’s On: Rep. Mark Meadows Makes Move To Unseat John Boehner As Speaker Immediately

This move comes after Speaker Boehner’s leadership team unsuccessfully attempted retaliation against Meadows for opposing Obamatrade.

Exclusive — Trump: Obama Shouldn’t Attack Americans Overseas, Hillary’s Email Was ‘Criminal,’ Smears Against Me ‘Vicious’ But Ineffective

“I think it sends a very bad signal to the people that he’s in front of,” Trump said when asked to respond to Obama’s attack against him and other GOP candidates in a press conference in Ethiopia. “These countries must be saying what’s going on over there? He’s over Africa and he’s talking about Trump. I think it sends a very weak and a very bad signal to the people he’s trying to impress and I think he would be much better off if he would focus on just straightening out that horrible nuclear deal with Iran that’s just been made rather than wasting his time talking about me.”

Trump’s Ex-Wife Ivana Dismisses Daily Beast Smear Job: ‘Story Is Totally Without Merit’

“I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit. Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president,” Ivana Trump, Donald’s ex-wife, said in the statement to CNN.

On the floor of the U.S. Senate on Sunday evening, something remarkable—a little bit insider-y in Washington, but remarkable nonetheless—happened: The Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, his entire leadership team, and most of the Republicans in the U.S. Senate voice voted through measures to fund Planned Parenthood in its entirety and to help protect President Barack Obama’s nuclear arms deal with Iran.

Ted Cruz Hits McConnell Again On Rush’s Radio Show: ‘The Washington Cartel Is Coming After Me Hard’

“At the end of the day, it is about power and money in Washington and the people getting left behind are working men and women,” Cruz said. “Now I will say one thing that’s very encouraging, which is even though the Washington Cartel is coming after me hard—the lobbyists are backing other candidates in this presidential race—out of 16 candidates for the Republican nomination, do you know which candidate raised the most money out of all 16?”
