The conservative website The Drudge Report on Friday mocked the announcement of House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) resignation as “one last cry.”

Here’s a screenshot of the splash:

Boehner, who’s known to get emotional in public, wiped tears from his eyes Thursday after Pope Francis’ joint address to Congress and cried after the pontiff addressed the public from the speaker’s balcony. Boehner had extended the invitation to Pope Francis to speak to Congress.

Drudge Report proprietor Matt Drudge also tweeted about Boehner’s surprise announcement:
