Ted Cruz fired back at John Boehner after the former Republican House Speaker rattled off an expletive-laced insult to the Texas senator while recording audio for his upcoming book.
Boehner reportedly went off-script in recording his memoir saying, “Oh, and Ted Cruz, go f*** yourself.”
“I can confirm there were some off-script moments during his recording of the audiobook,” a spokesman for Boehner revealed. “He pretty much just let it fly, as he did when he was working on the book itself. ”
The famously teary-eyed predecessor to Paul Ryan blamed his veering off the path on red wine.
“Poured me a glass of something nice to read my audiobook,” he tweeted. “You can blame the wine for the expletives.”
The Ted Cruz/John Boehner Feud
Cruz, speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Florida, took an opportunity to fire back at Boehner, extending their longstanding feud.
Cruz began by joking that Boehner’s suggestion was, in fact, not a request he could fulfill.
“You know yesterday, John Boehner made some news,” he said. “He suggested that I do something that was anatomically impossible.”
