I didn’t know whether or not to talk about this because I know how many people will use former Speaker of the House John Boehner was a rallying cry to raise Sen. Ted Cruz campaign from the dead, but I had to speak on it.
Boehner said he gets along with some Republicans and Democrats but his view on Cruz was undeniably straightforward. I am sure Boehner knew that statement wasn’t going to be forgotten, so he meant to drop that on the American public.
From Stanford Daily:
Much of the discussion – and laughs – focused on Boehner’s views on the current presidential candidates. Segueing into the topic, Kennedy asked Boehner to be frank given that the event was not being broadcasted, and the former Speaker responded in kind. When specifically asked his opinions on Ted Cruz, Boehner made a face, drawing laughter from the crowd.
“Lucifer in the flesh,” the former speaker said. “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.”
Boehner described other Republican candidates as friends. In particular, the former speaker said he has played golf with Donald Trump for years and that they were “texting buddies.”
His friendship with Ohio Governor John Kasich, however, was a little more ambiguous.
“[Kasich] requires more effort on my behalf than all my other friends … but he’s still my friend, and I love him,” Boehner said.
