Jimmy Kimmel presents crying ‘Boehner Baby’ doll
On “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday, host Jimmy Kimmel paid tribute to our Speaker of the House, the most powerful Republican in the country, Congressman John Boehner (R-OH). Recently, at a reception honoring Italian artist Constantino Brumidi, Boehner welled up with tears, as he frequently does.
Kimmel pointed out that, in case you haven’t noticed, John Boehner cries a lot. Like, a whole lot. He cries giving speeches, he cries at his own election night vote-watching parties, he cries during puff-piece, soft focus “60 Minutes” interviews.
“This guy, he’s super tan, he cries, he smokes and drinks. He should be Speaker of the ‘Jersey Shore’ House,” Kimmel said, “He’s like a menopausal Oompah-Loompah.”
Given Boehner’s tendency to wax lachrymose at the least provocation, Kimmel introduced a new toy, a crying baby doll named “Boehner Baby.”
“Everything makes him cry!” said the tag line in the commercial, which featured a little girl trying to smother her Boehner Baby doll with a pillow. Who could blame her?
