Former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) called presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) "Lucifer in the flesh" during an appearance at Stanford University on April 27. (The Washington Post)
We are re-upping this post from early 2014 in light of Boehner labeling Cruz "Lucifer in the flesh" and saying, "I've never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life." Here's where their work together began, two decades ago.
For what it's worth, Cruz downplayed their relationship Thursday in his comments responding to Boehner. "I've met John Boehner two or three times in my life," he assured.
