Not the first time he's went after Cruz
The former House speaker says he’d vote for Trump but not Cruz in the general election, and had “never worked with a more miserable son of a b---h in my life.”
Former House Speaker John Boehner said he'd vote for Donald Trump in the general election if he were the Republican nominee, but he would not vote for Ted Cruz, according to the Stanford Daily.
“Lucifer in the flesh,” Boehner called the Texas senator on Wednesday during a talk at the California university, according to the student newspaper. “I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b---h in my life.”Boehner’s scathing remarks are the latest sign of Cruz’s poor relationships on Capitol Hill, which the candidate has attempted to turn in his favor as he campaigns against what he calls the “Washington cartel.
This isn’t the first time Boehner has unleashed on Cruz: He’s previously called him a “jackass” and a “false prophet.” The tension is a result largely of Cruz’s drive to defund Obamacare in 2013, leading to a government shutdown.
