Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] responded to former speaker of the House [crscore]John Boehner[/crscore]’s claim that he is “Lucifer in the flesh,” saying that Boehner “allowed his inner Trump to come out.”
In a press gaggle in Fort Wayne, Indiana alongside Carly Fiorina on Thursday, Cruz said, “John Boehner had some interesting comments last night… he allowed his inner Trump to come out.”(RELATED: Boehner: Cruz Is ‘Lucifer In The Flesh’)
Cruz then pivoted to slamming Boehner for exemplifying the Washington establishment. Arguing, “I will say this, if you’re wondering who actually has 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 someone that’s a ‘texting and golfing buddy,’ if you’re happy with John Boehner, Speaker of the House, you want a president like John Boehner, Donald Trump is your man.”
“And by the way, Donald Trump gave John Boehner’s super pac $100,000 just a few years ago. Donald Trump has been funding John Boehner and also been funding [crscore]Nancy Pelosi[/crscore] and [crscore]Harry Reid[/crscore],” Cruz claimed.
“If you like what John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have done, Donald Trump is your guy,” Cruz said.
