John Boehner: I Threw Cold Water on Roger Ailes’ Conspiracy Theories

Former speaker of the House John Boehner describes having to combat conspiracy theories pushed by the late Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in a new Politico profile. “I never went to New York without seeing Ailes,” he said. “He and I were friends. But it was the most bizarre meeting I’d ever had. He had black helicopters flying all around his head that morning. It was every conspiracy theory you’ve ever heard, and I’m throwing cold water on all this bullshit.”
