Jordan, a co-founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, is portrayed in the story as one of Boehner’s chief protagonists during Boehner’s efforts to unite a restive house. Boehner called Jordan “a legislative terrorist” and said “F__ Jordan. F__ Chaffetz. They’re both a__,” a reference to former U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican.

Jordan shurgged off the curse words and said the problem in Congress is members who make promises they do not fulfill.
“My approach then and now as long as I’ve been in public service is real simple: Do what you said you would do,” Jordan said. “That’s what I’m trying to do now. That’s what I’ve tried to do in every legislative body I’ve been a part of.”
In the story Boehner also mentions says he had a conversation with Fox TV personality Sean Hannity after Hannity went over “to the dark side.”
Hannity responded on Sunday by tweeting, “John were you sober when you said this? That conversation never happened. I’m sorry you are bitter and u failed!”
