House Speaker John Boehner held his weekly press conference on Tuesday to talk about -- among other things -- the Highway Trust Fund, the state of the economy and how to deal with the ongoing crisis at the country's southern border. He also found time to throw in a wink.

According to Boehner spokesman Michael Steel, the wink came in response to questioning by Politico's Jake Sherman about whether Boehner had ideas for legislation to deal with the border. "I’ve got lots of them," the Speaker replied.  Sherman asked for details. Boehner demurred -- with a wink!
