John Boehner Cries Again… At Taco Bell Event

House Speaker John Boehner has become the butt of many a late night talk show joke over his propensity to start awkwardly weeping while giving speeches and, on Tuesday, the Ohio Congressman broke down once again, this time at a Taco Bell event.

Appearing at a Taco Bell Foundation for Teens event, Boehner choked back tears as he said “Some of you know how I am about these things,” referring to the $30 million the Boys and Girls Clubs of America gave to the Foundation to help teens graduate from high school.“We need to do a better job of educating more American kids. We live in America, for goodness’ sake.”

Boehner spoke alongside former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland, who said of Boehner “He’s so sweet. These people (Congress) are dealing with so much on a regular day-to-day schedule.” She thanked Congress for “carving out this space in their heart” to case about issues like America’s teenagers.

Of course, crying isn’t the same thing as legislating, but close enough.

It also helps that Taco Bell’s political action committee TACO PAC (yep, real thing) has already donated $71,000 to 48 Republican campaigns in the 2014 cycle alone while giving only $6,000 to two Democrats.

Lee Mitchell, the Vice Chairman of the Foundation, said “We’re concerned about a lot of issues that are associated with small business because Taco Bell is made up of franchisees, they’re small businesspeople.”

In case you’re keeping score at home, Politico has compiled a list of all the things that make John Boehner cry:

A February 2007 speech while talking about the security of Americans.

A September 2008 speech while talking about economic suffering in the US.

June 2009 when the Speaker cried at the singing of America the Beautiful.

A May 2010 speech while talking about growing up with 11 siblings.

November 2010, watching the election night results.

A December 2010 60 Minutes interview, talking about schools and his wife.

January 2011 when he took the speaker’s gavel for the first time.

An April 2011 speech, thanking Republicans for their support in budget negotiations.

June 2011, giving a commencement address.

Why do you keep posting all these inane newspaper items? You're like someone's besotted old aunt who has a whole pocketbook full of newspaper clippings.

I have a newspaper of my own, you crazy old bat.

Read it. You might actually learn something.

How would you know whether or not he's footing the bill.

Heck, I'll bet he would pay for your burial, gladly, if asked.
