Mr. Trump reportedly targeted Mr. McConnell at a fundraiser event over the weekend in Florida, describing the Kentucky Republican as a “dumb son of a bitch” and a “stone cold loser.”
Mr. Boehner is on a public relations tour for his new book “On the House: A Washington Memoir” in which he slams the “noise-makers” in both parties and criticizes Mr. Trump for being a sore loser after President Biden’s victory.
“I don’t care whether it is from the left or the right,” the Ohio Republican said. “It just doesn’t help our country in any way, shape, or form.”
Mr. Boehner said the GOP would be better off focusing on the party’s core principles than getting bogged down in the sort of rhetorical bomb throwing and personal attacks that Mr. Trump helped popularize.
