Boehner: Ted Cruz is ‘Lucifer in the Flesh,’ ‘Miserable Son of a Bitch’

Screen Shot 2016-04-28 at 9.00.17 AMFormer Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner pulled no punches when criticizing his former congressional colleague Ted Cruz Wednesday, calling him “Lucifer in the flesh.”

Boehner made a face when asked about the presidential candidate during an event at Stanford University, reports The Stanford Daily. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life,” he replied.

Boehner was nicer to Donald Trump, saying they were friendly “texting buddies.” He went on to say he would probably vote for Trump if he won the nomination, but not Cruz.

When it came to fellow Ohioan John Kasich, Boehner was a little more lukewarm. “[Kasich] requires more effort on my behalf than all my other friends… but he’s still my friend, and I love him,” he said.
