John Boehner on 'Messy' Day That House Tossed DHS Bill: 'I'm Not Into Messy

News

"Friday wasn't all that fun."

WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — We all have bad days at work.

John Boehner, too.

For the House speaker, "Friday wasn't all that fun," he says, though "most days" he likes his job.

The Ohio Republican and his leadership team in the GOP-controlled House had a stunning defeat when a three-week spending bill for the Homeland Security Department went down after more than 50 conservatives voted against it — contending that it will allow the Obama administration to implement its executive action on immigration.

The rejection came just hours before a threatened agency shutdown. A compromise — with support from Democrats — is keeping the department open for one more week.

Boehner tells CBS' "Face the Nation" that Friday "was just messy and I'm not into messy."

He calls the House "a rambunctious place" and says he enjoys "all the personalities — and I have got a lot of them."
