During his CPAC appearance, Texas Senator Ted Cruz responded to reports that former House Speaker John Boehner told him “go f— yourself” while he was recording the audio book of his upcoming memoir.
Cruz said “you know yesterday, John Boehner made some news. He suggested that I do something that was anatomically impossible….to which my response was, who’s John Boehner?”
Boehner referenced his reported expletive at Cruz in a tweet last week, writing “poured myself a glass of something nice to read my audiobook. You can blame the wine for the expletives.”

Boehner famously once called Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh” making his disdain for the Texas Republican widely known.
