He faced a somewhat more formidable interviewer in Stephen Colbert later that night.Boehner, whose new book On the House: A Washington Memoir Colbert described as “juicy” and “candid,” promised to be just as revealing during his Late Show appearance.

Ted Cruz (R-TX), “Lucifer in the flesh.”But when Colbert pressed him to explain how his party went so far off the deep end, Boehner attempted to “both sides” Democrats and Republicans. He blamed the “right-wing media” that “wanted more noise,” but then said, “The problem is not just on the far right, it’s on the far left as well.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
