They’re both a--holes.”

Boehner also called Chaffetz a “total phony” who was obsessed with promoting himself while in Congress.

“With Chaffetz it’s always about Chaffetz,” Boehner told Politico.

Chaffetz resigned from Congress in June and joined Fox News as a contributor.

Boehner also criticized Jordan, who helped found the House's Freedom Caucus, which was part of the movement to push Boehner out as speaker.

“Jordan was a terrorist as a legislator going back to his days in the Ohio House and Senate,” Boehner told Politico. “A terrorist. A legislative terrorist.”

However, Boehner said that he doesn't hold a grudge against anyone, according to Politico.
