Boehner cracks Weiner joke

Updated

House Speaker John Boehner cracked an Anthony Weiner joke while giving the commencement address at Ohio State University. During yesterday’s speech, Boehner (that’s pronounced “Bay-ner”) used his own last name while musing over the topic of mispronunciation when meeting with voters.

He then said with assertiveness, “Thank God it’s not Weiner.” Huh huh.

It’s both a nod to the political fallout over the congressman’s use of Twitter and payback for Weiner’s joke at this year’s Correspondents Dinner. Weiner, also a subject to many sophomoric taunts, said “Who is Boehner fooling, what am I, like, Anthony “Way-ner”? I’m serious brother, just embrace it.”

Boehner has remained silent on the Weiner scandal, until now. Many politicians on both sides of the aisle have called for Weiner’s resignation.
