Ahh, the retired life. For some, it means playing golf every day. For others, it means traveling the world. For John Boehner, it means doing a lot of laundry and ironing. Pretty sad, we know.
Yesterday, however, Boehner put the ironing board away to speak to a group of students at Stanford, and used the event to voice his utter love and affection for Ted Cruz. And by utter love and affection, I mean he ripped Teddy a new one.
Boehner called Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh” and, recognizing his friendly demeanor, said of Teddy “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.” Recalling Cruz’s role in leading the fight to defund Obamacare, which ultimately caused the government to shut down in 2013, Boehner called Cruz a jackass.
And of course, the internet had a field day with this one. Someone made lucifer2016.com redirect to cruzcarly.com ...ouch. You want some ice for that burn, Ted? Of course, he couldn’t be silent, and just HAD to respond with some ridiculous bullshit. Ted said of Boehner’s remarks at an event today: “When John Boehner calls me Lucifer, he’s not directing that at me, he’s directing that at you.”
Not sure about that Teddy, it sounded pretty clear that he was directing the Lucifer at you. Might want to get your hearing checked. And while you’re at it, maybe get a brain scan too, because there’s something really fucked up with whatever is between your ears.
Stay classy, Zack
