House Speaker Boehner Would Not Give Up Wine to Be President

Obama may not be half way into his second term but it’s never too early for 2016 hopefuls to pull out their humor and approachability for all to see. On NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, John Boehner performed his share of self-aware jokes and reassured viewers that he would not be eliminating any of his vices to join the presidential race: “Listen, I like to play golf. I like to cut my own grass. You know, I do drink red wine. I smoke cigarettes. And I’m not giving that up to be president of the United States.” And what about that “Simple Life”-era Paris Hilton bronze? Boehner also took the opportunity to assert that his complexion is all natural. [NPR]
