Ted Cruz is firing back at John Boehner after the former Speaker of the House called Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.”
“John Boehner allowed his ‘inner Trump’ to come out,” the Texas Senator at a press conference in Fort Wayne, Indiana. “If you’re wondering who has actually stood up to Washington, I think John Boehner has made it crystal clear. John Boehner in his remarks described Donald Trump as his ‘texting and golfing buddy’…So if you want a president like John Boehner, Trump’s your man.”
Cruz went on to say that despite the former Speaker’s comments, he’s never had a “substantive conversation” with the Ohio Republican.”I’ve never worked with John Boehner. The truth of the matter is I don’t know the man. I’ve met John Boehner two or three times in my life.”
Cruz also noted that Trump had given $100,000 to John Boehner’s super-pac several years back.
