    It's not quite Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but former GOP House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday said President Donald Trump has taken over the Republican Party.

    "There is no Republican party. There's a Trump party. The Republican Party is kinda taking a nap somewhere," he said at the Mackinac Policy Conference in Michigan.

    Boehner also described his relationship with Trump, who was a supporter of the Ohio Republican and played golf with him, telling the crowd that neither of the two men thought Trump would win the 2016 election.

    "Well, you know, Donald Trump, who I know well, was one of my supporters, when I was speaker," Boehner recalled. "I was having a rough week, Trump would call me, pat me on the back, cheer me up, played a lot of golf together. But president? Really? I never quite saw this."

    Boehner also said he believes Trump had told his wife, Melania, that he would not win the election.

    "I think Donald Trump promised Melania that he would not win. She didn't have to worry about ever living in the White House. It's probably why she doesn't look real happy every day. But, well, maybe one reason," he said.

    Boehner recently joined an advisory board for a cannabis company, Acreage Holdings, after he said his "thinking on cannabis has evolved."

    He abruptly resigned from office in 2015 after facing pressure from a caucus of hard-right GOP House members who threatened a government shutdown because of a bill that would have provided funding for Planned Parenthood.

    I have to agree here with the Former House Speaker.  The Republican Party is now the Trump Party.  This is a group of people who will literally fall in line with whatever Trump says whether right or wrong.  Back when I was a kid, Republicans would not back down whether the head of their party was President, Speaker of the House or President of the Senate.  The same can be said of Democrats.  Today, in the Republicans case, the GOP is scared of Trump.

    Then again, they a decent reason to fear Donald Trump.  Here is a breakdown of all of those who have been fired or resigned under Donald Trump.

    Now, with all this moving and shaking, who wouldn't fear the man who's famous catchphrase is, "YOU'RE FIRED!"

    Just Saying.
