Former Speaker John Boehner roasted Chuck Todd a bit with a rare instance of profanity on Meet the Press.
Towards the end of the interview, Todd asked, “Would you ever run for office again?”
“I would rather set myself on fire than to run for office again,” Boehner bluntly responded.
Todd admitted with a chuckle that the only reason he asked was because “I expected an answer just like that.”
An amused Boehner responded, “You’re a shit. You’re a shit.”
They laughed a bit and Todd said, “I assume I’m getting that as a compliment. I’ll take that as a backhanded compliment.”
