Rep. Pete King (R-NY) tried to one-up former Speaker of the House John Boehner calling Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) “Lucifer in the flesh” in a Thursday afternoon interview.

“I fully agree with John Boehner,” King said on CNN. “Maybe he gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz.”

The congressman went on to say Cruz’s leading role in forcing the government shutdown when there was only a “vague promise” of getting Obamacare removed from the federal budget amounted to “fraud.”

In a Wednesday night event, Boehner spoke openly of his disdain for Cruz, calling the most “miserable son of a bitch” he ever worked with.
