Ted Cruz's Epic Response to Boehner Calling him "Lucifer" (VIDEO)

Ted Cruz responded to Boehner’s nasty comments today, remarking that Boehner allowed his “inner Trump” to come out.

Watch Cruz’s spot-on response below:

TRANSCRIPT

Cruz: John Boehner had some interesting comments last night.  He actually didn’t abbreviate what he said, he was a little bit more expressive- he allowed his inner Trump to come out.  You know I will say this, if you are wondering who actually has stood up to Washington, I think John Boehner has made it crystal clear.  John Boehner and his remarks describe Donald Trump as his “texting and golfing buddy.”  So if you want someone that’s a texting and golfing buddy, if you’re happy with John Boehner as speaker of the house, and you want a president like John Boehner, Donald Trump’s your man.  Boehner’s comments- he said something like “he’s the worst SOB I’ve ever worked with,” something like that–

Woman interjecting off screen: Lucifer in the flesh.

Cruz: Well there was that too.  But the interesting thing is, he said “that I’ve ever worked with.”  I’ve never worked with John Boehner.  Truth of the matter is, I don’t know the man.  I’ve met John Boehner two or three times in my life.  If I have said fifty words in my life to John Boehner I would be surprised.  And everyone of them has consisted of pleasantries.  If John Boehner is calling me “Lucifer,” he’s not directing that at me.  He’s directing that at you.

I don’t know why anyone even bothers trying to battle Ted Cruz in the war of words anymore, he always ends up coming out on top.

Game, set, match.
