Ted Cruz Was Called Lucifer And Satanists Are NOT Having It

Former Speaker of the House John Boehner has come out of retirement to serve the public good. No, he’s not running for office again — he’s telling the world just how awful Ted Cruz really is.

John Boehner was recently at Stanford talking to students about his time in office when he went a little off script.

The former Speaker of the House had a few choice words for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz that rubbed more than one person the wrong way.

When moderator David M. Kennedy asked Boehner what he thought of Cruz, he responded by saying he was the devil.

“Lucifer in the flesh… I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

This was Cruz at a press conference when he was asked about Boehner’s comments.

But, Teddy held back his tears and answered the question with his head held high.

“I’ve never worked with John Boehner. Truth of the matter is, I don’t know the man,” Cruz told the press. “I’ve met John Boehner two or three times in my life. If I have said 50 words in my life to John Boehner, I’d be surprised.”

But wait, there’s more!

The Satanic Temple also weighed in. They didn’t like the idea of Cruz being compared to Lucifer.

“Boehner’s comment is illustrative of how well past time it is to adjust our mythologies to reflect our realities,” Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves told Patheos’ Friendly Atheist. “Cruz’s failures of reason, compassion, decency and humanity are products of his Christian pandering, if not an actual Christian faith. It grows tedious when pedophile priests and loathsome politicians are conveniently dismissed as Satanic, even as they spew biblical verse and prostrate themselves before the cross, recruiting the Christian faithful. Satanists will have nothing to do with any of them.”

Not even the Satanists want to be associated with Cruz, like, daayyuummm.
