John Boehner sounded off a litany of insults for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz Wednesday night, labelling the Texas senator "Lucifer in the flesh" and a "miserable son of a bitch."
"I have Democrat friends and Republican friends," the former House speaker said during a frank on-stage discussion at Stanford University Wednesday. "I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life."
Boehner, who retired from Congress at the end of October, also let loose on the two other GOP candidates in the race.
Of his relationship with Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Boehner said that he was "my friend, and I love him" -- but with the caveat that Kasich "requires more effort on my behalf than all my other friends."
Boehner said he was on friendly terms with Republican front-runner Donald Trump, adding that he often played golf with the New York business mogul and billing their friendship as one between "texting buddies."
The ex-congressman seemed to accept that Trump would be the party's nominee and said that he would vote for him if that prediction came to pass. Boehner said he would not, however, cast a ballot for Cruz if the Texas senator won the nomination.
Boehner also weighed in on the Democratic primary contest, according to the Stanford Daily, the university newspaper that first reported Boehner's comments. The former House speaker praised Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders as the most honest politician in the White House race. Of Clinton, who he has known for 25 years, Boehner called her accomplished and smart.

Now Boner is good.
In Cruz’s defense, he was part of the conservatives in Congress that got rid of Boner! (Even though he’s in the Senate)
I didn’t say Boner was good. Who said Boner was good?
Suddenly this makes me LIKE Ted Cruz again...
Boehner is so stupid. His acquisition of as much power as he was able to seize is a deplorable commentary on the U.S. Federal Government (as though there were not ample deplorable commentaries without him) and a commentary on the intelligence of the people who run—and profit from—it (not to mention his constituents).
Back to drinkin’ outta da bottle 9AM again, eh?
Screw Boner. This is disinformation designed to hurt Trump.
or, send him $500K
“I have never worked with a more miserable son-of-a-bitch in my life.?
Does that include Obama too?Just wow!
Coming from Bohner it should be counted an endorsement
Boner is filth. What a cheese-eating surrender-monkey.
Can Air Force One carry that much scotch?
It used to be on FR that any friend of JB was an enemy of the conservative movement. Now...well...we all know full well the hard and fast rules some are having to rewrite in order to boost their man.
Best reason yet to support Cruz. Boehner represents everything I have grown to hate about the Republican establishment.
That guy is still around?
I didn’t say you said it.
This isn’t the only thread on this.
Obviously the devil talk with Cruz is to get Cruz some cross over Democrat votes.
This stinks! Now I’m going to have to rethink my disgust with Cruz. Thanks a lot, Boehner.
