Boehner rips Cruz: 'Lucifer in the flesh,' 'miserable son of a bitch'

John Boehner ripped into Ted Cruz at an event at Stanford University Wednesday night, by referring to him as "lucifer in the flesh," and saying he "never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life."

Boehner made the remarks when asked for "frank" comments on those in the presidential field. He didn't hold back when discussing Cruz, and reportedly making a face when asked about the Texas senator who's challenging Donald Trump for the GOP presidential nomination.

"Lucifer in the flesh," Boehner said. "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."

These are not Boehner's first comments of this sort about Cruz. In August, Boehner referred to Cruz as a "jackass" at a fundraiser in Colorado, which he confirmed soon after he announced his impending resignation from the speakership.
