Send Off of the Day: Republicans and Democrats Rejoince as Congress Loses Its Boehner
Speaker of the House, Republican Rep. John Boehner announced his resignation from the office today.
What's so crazy about it is how many people from both sides of the aisle are greeting it with jubilation.
Rep. John Boehner announced his resignation Sept. 25
There was much rejoicing
Marco Rubio pulled in a huge swell of applause from a gathering of Republican voters for mentioning it
And the news sent Trevor Noah and 'The Daily Show' writers scrambling away from an interview
Business Insider says they were in the middle of an interview with the new host of the Daily Show:
"I'm sorry, we have to go right now," Noah joked, without skipping a beat, after hearing the news.
The new host then added, "That's sad. I liked him. He always cried."
It was then that one of the producers let it slip that they had "really funny" jokes about Boehner planned for the upcoming premiere episode on Monday.
Since Noah's first show is on Sept. 28, they gotta keep those jokes fresh.
Many have talked about (joked hard on) his emotional response to the Pope's Sept. 24 visit

Really, all of Twitter just had a go
Wow. Pope Francis visits Washington and John Boehner steps down. It's like an exorcism.— Tom Morello (@tmorello) September 25, 2015
Dems will miss Boehner like we miss a fever. While unpleasant, he nonetheless helped kill germs.— Greg Pinelo (@gregpinelo) September 25, 2015

Like a man who passed gas in an elevator and then left as the doors closed, trapping others, so does Boehner pass from the Speakership.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) September 25, 2015

And so goes the nature of politics. Surely everything will move towards everyone's favor now.
