Speaker John Boehner’s Nickname for Luke Russert: ‘Loud Mouth’

In a presser with congressional reporters, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) gave the last question to NBC Congressional Correspondent Luke Russert, whom he referred to as “loud mouth.”

As reporters clamored for his attention he looked Russert’s way and said, “Last question for loud mouth.” Boehner has made fun of the reporter’s so-called volume before.

Russert replied, “Thank you sir,” and proceeded with his question about the budget.
