Sen. Ted Cruz said he wears former Speaker of the House John Boehner’s “drunken, bloviated scorn” with “pride” after Boehner said the Texas Republican is a “jerk.”
“The Swamp is unhappy. I wear with pride his drunken, bloviated scorn. Please don’t cry,” Cruz tweeted on Friday.
His tweet was in response to a teaser clip of Boehner’s Sunday interview with CBS, where the former House speaker said he doesn’t like to “beat anyone up” but went on to say Cruz is a “jerk” and accused him of “making a lot of noise” but not being very productive in Congress.
