Peter King on John Boehner calling Ted Cruz Lucifer: ‘Maybe he gives Lucifer a bad name’
Yesterday John Boehner let us know exactly how he felt about the man who is partly responsible for bringing about the former House Speaker’s downfall, Ted Cruz, when he called the Texas Senator “Lucifer in the flesh.”
It was then Peter King’s turn to chime in when he was asked about John Boehner’s comments, here is what he had to say:
“Maybe he gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz,” King said. “Listen, what John Boehner was most concerned about was Ted Cruz perpetrated a fraud and a hoax when he brought about the shutdown of the government on some kind of a vague promise that he was gonna be able to take Obamacare out of the budget or to end Obamacare.”
He took it to the next level by saying John Boehner was giving Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz. But then he let us in on why the establishment hates Ted Cruz so much and that is because Ted Cruz actually took action to defund Obamacare, however inadequate it turned out to be, and the establishment had no interest in defunding the program because it felt Obamacare was a great campaign issue and if it was defunded they could not run on defunding it any more. The establishment chose words over actions while Ted Cruz tried to put his words into action and they still have not forgiven him for it.
As much as establishment Republicans such as John Boehner and Peter King (who said he might take cyanide if Ted Cruz is the nominee) do not like Donald Trump they have reserved this type of rhetoric for Ted Cruz and I think that tells us something about the Texas Senator that got lost when the billionaire businessman hijacked the anti-establishment train.
