Former House Speaker John Boehner says he keeps a portrait of himself, painted by former President George W. Bush.

Boehner, unveiled the painting in an interview with Barstool Sports for his “Zero-Blog-Thirty” – podcast. Podcast host-uncle, friends, tweeted a picture of the portrait on Friday, according to the survey, the Ohio Republican, in his home.

“After the interview, we played the pmt [bar stool podcast you’ll excuse My Taking] the game “who is the most famous person on your mobile phone,” Chaps wrote on Barstool Sports. “His answer, ole W. was, He began to tell stories about Bush and your relationship. Much to my surprise, he pulled out his phone and showed us the picture.”

He said Boehner asked Bush to paint a portrait, as he was leaving office in 2015.

Podcast co-host Kate Mannion tweeted that Bush was originally painted Boehner with white hair. The former speaker allegedly texted Bush “something along the lines of ‘what-s—!” when he saw the picture.

A few hours later, Bush sent an updated version instead of show Boehner with a salt-and-pepper hair.


Bush took up painting after leaving office as a hobby. In 2017, it will be published “Portraits of Courage: A Commander-in-Chief ‘s Tribute to America’s warriors,” a book that serves as a tribute to the U.S. troops who served after 9/11.

A “Portraits of courage” exhibition is scheduled to open at the Kennedy Center in DC on Oct. 7, with a collection of Bush’s paintings.
