Sean Spicer, chief strategist and director of communications for the Republican National Committee, agreed with New York Rep. Peter King that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is an “asshole.”
“I’d probably use the same verbiage” as King, Spicer told CNN after Cruz declined to endorse Trump in his convention speech.
Spicer added, “It is disappointing when somebody who’s a leader in the conservative movement, who knows what’s a stake — I mean, Ted Cruz, more than anybody, in terms of his background, knows what’s a stake and chose to come here. He could have just said, ‘I’m not coming, I don’t feel comfortable.'”
