Former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) was unstinting in his criticism of Sen. Ted Cruz in comments he made last night at Stanford University. Referring to Cruz, an evangelical Christian, Boehner said the Texan presidential candidate is “Lucifer in the flesh” during a discussion.
 
The tough-talking Buckeye also discussed the future of the Republican party at the event, but saved his strongest words of the night for Cruz. “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends,” Boehner said. “I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”
 
Boehner, who was succeed by current Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, said that Republican frontrunner Donald Trump is a golfing buddy but also “texting buddies.”
 
As for fellow Ohioan and Buckeye State governor John Kasich, Boehner was rather more cagey. Of Kasich, who out of all the primaries so far this year has won only Ohio, Boehner said, “He requires more effort on my behalf than all my other friends,” adding, “But he’s still my friend, and I love him.”
