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.

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’)
