Patriot’s wide receiver Chad Ochocinco traded tweets with U.S. House speaker John Boehner according to the Associated Press.
Noticing the unhappy look on the face of Republican speaker Jim Boehner sitting behind President Barack Obama during the State of the Union address Tuesday night, Ochocinco decided to tweet Boehner on Wednesday:
@SpeakerBoehner Hello Mr. Boehner, hoping you are in better spirits today. If all else seems bad in life just remember I love you kind sir.—
