“Oh, and Ted Cruz, go f**k yourself"

John Boehner has been going off script while recording the audio version of his new memoir, using expletives and asides not in the book — such as the former Republican House speaker saying, “Oh, and Ted Cruz, go f**k yourself.”…

Cruz (R-Texas) has been a longtime target. During one of his first appearances after leaving the House in October 2015, Boehner branded the Texas senator “Lucifer in the flesh.”

What they’re saying: “I can confirm there were some off-script moments during his recording of the audiobook,” Boehner spokesman David Schnittger said. “He pretty much just let it fly, as he did when he was working on the book itself. He’s not really interested in being anything other than himself these days. That is kind of the spirit of the entire project.”
