Former House Speaker Joe Boehner told Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to “go f**k yourself” while taping the audiobook of his memoir, according to Axios.
Boehner said, “Oh, and Ted Cruz, go f**k yourself.” while recording for his book, titled “On The House: A Washington Memoir,” Axios reported Thursday.
The book is set to be released on April 13, according to Barnes and Noble, and will share “colorful tales from the halls of power.” Boehner gained his title as House Speaker in 2010 and later resigned from Congress in 2015.
“There were some off-script moments during his recording of the audiobook,” Boehner’s spokesperson David Schnittger said according to Axios. “He pretty much just let it fly, as he did when he was working on the book itself. He’s not really interested in being anything other than himself these days. That is kind of the spirit of the entire project.”
“Poured myself a glass of something nice to read my audiobook. You can blame the wine for the expletives,” Boehner tweeted Thursday. (RELATED: Ted Cruz Diagnoses ‘Media Obsession’ Over Cancun Trip As ‘Acute Trump Withdrawal’)
