John Boehner thinks Ted Cruz is a real devil. No, the devil, actually.
The Stanford Daily reported that the former Republican Speaker of the House was asked for his thoughts on the GOP presidential candidate during an event at Stanford University, and called Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.” But he didn’t stop there.
“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 said.
When asked about Donald Trump, Boehner said he has played golf with the media mogul for years and claimed they were “texting buddies.” He added that he would vote for Trump in the general election if he would become the Republican nominee, although he didn’t praise Trump’s policies.
When it came to John Kasich, Boehner said that, “[Kasich] requires more effort on my behalf than all my other friends … but he’s still my friend, and I love him.”
Boehner, who served as the 53rd Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 2011 to 2015, also talked about the Democrat primaries. He believes Hillary Clinton will win the democratic nomination over Bernie Sanders, although he thinks Sanders is “the most honest politician in the race.”
