During Thursday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest was asked what President Obama thinks of John Boehner’s recent comment that Ted Cruz is “Lucifer in the flesh.”
“I don’t know that he was trying to be helpful or harmful,” Earnest told the group of reporters. “I think he was just looking to be honest about his own view.” (RELATED: Boehner — Cruz Is ‘Lucifer In The Flesh’)
On Wednesday, the former Speaker of the House told attendees at a Stanford gathering that he made “Democrat friends and Republican friends” during his time in Congress.
“I get along with almost everyone,” Boehner explained. “But I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch,” than Ted Cruz.
Cruz laughed off Boehner’s comments Thursday, claiming he allowed “his inner Trump to come out.” (VIDEO: Cruz Reacts To Boehner Saying He Is ‘Lucifer In The Flesh’)
