Fox News host Sean Hannity called for a "cowardly" Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to be replaced Thursday night after the House passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill aimed at funding the federal government through 2015.
"John Boehner 'Grubered' conservatives tonight," Hannity said, referencing Affordable Care Act architect Jonathan Gruber who was caught on multiple videos bragging about misleading the American people to pass the health law.
"He never would have done this before the election," the conservative talk show host continued. "He has no inspiring vision. And to me, he is everything that is wrong with Washington."
The unpopular spending bill that narrowly passed the House was skewered by many Republicans for not containing language blocking President Barack Obama's executive action on immigration.
"In my view, he should not be the speaker," Hannity said of Boehner. "He should be replaced."
"We've got our own Gruber," he added. "It's John Boehner. Boehner is Gruber. He's full of it."
