House Speaker John Boehner releases a "day in the life" video+ READ ARTICLE
Ever wondered what it’s like to spend a day as Speaker of the House?
Maybe not, but Speaker John Boehner and his social media gurus have given us a glimpse, releasing a video Tuesday that chronicles everything from his early mornings at Pete’s Diner to the end of the business day. There’s also an impromptu Emmitt Smith appearance amidst the “organized chaos” of his schedule, as one staffer puts it, and some practical advice from the 64-year-old Speaker.
“Nothing good happens after 10 p.m.,” says Boehner. “So, I’m always in bed before ten. Get up at five-thirty, quarter to six, and ready to go.”
On Monday, the House completed legislative business by approximately 9:56pm.
