John Boehner is not holding back anymore! The former Speaker of the House completely incinerated Ted Cruz, calling his fellow Republican ‘a miserable son of a bitch’ before saying Ted was literally the devil!
Holy smokes, John Boehner, 66. Tell us how you really feel about Ted Cruz, 45. Now that John has retired from politics, he’s doesn’t have to worry about playing nice to keep his job. John’s free to say whatever he feels like, and that includes absolutely trashing his Republican arch-rival!
“[Ted is] Lucifer in the flesh,” John said while speaking at Stanford University on April 27, according to The Daily Beast. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”
Dang, John. Saying that a political rival is literally Satan is pretty extreme, but John has a bitter rivalry with Ted that could put the bad blood between Taylor Swift, 26, and Katy Perry, 31, to shame. Ted successfully undermined John’s attempts to reopen the government during the 2013 shutdown. Ted even tried to sneak in a repeal of the Affordable Care Act into the vote that ended the shutdown and John never forgot that.
“The Bible says beware of false prophets,” he said in Sept. 2015 following his retirement, kind of hinting that he thinks Ted is the Anti-Christ. “And there are people out there, you know, spreading noise about how much can get done. I mean this whole notion that we’re going to shut down the government to get rid of Obamacare in 2013—this plan never had a chance.”

John Boehner calling Ted Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh" is preposterous.
The devil should sue him for defamation

As for the other two remaining Republicans running for president in 2016, John said that he and Donald Trump, 69, are “texting buddies” that play golf together. As for John’s fellow Ohioan, governor John Kasich, 63, the former Speaker said “[He] requires more effort on my behalf than all my other friends, but he’s still my friend and I love him.” That beats being called the living embodiment of evil, so the Ohio Governor has that going for him.
Being called Lucifer may be the worst thing anyone said about Ted, and this is the guy that voters have called the Demon from the horror movie, It Follows. Others think the Texas Senator is both the Zodiac Killer and the singer from Christian metal band, Stryper. Christian metal or Satan? According to John Boehner, Ted Cruz is both.
What do you think about John’s comments about Ted, HollywoodLifers?
