While former Speaker of the House John Boehner believes Ted Cruz is the physical manifestation of Lucifer, Representative Peter King (R-NY) believes we're being too hard on Lucifer.
“Maybe he gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz,” King said. “Listen, what John Boehner was most concerned about was Ted Cruz perpetrated a fraud and a hoax when he brought about the shutdown of the government on some kind of a vague promise that he was gonna be able to take Obamacare out of the budget or to end Obamacare.”
King is wrong about many things but he's right that Ted Cruz orchestrated a government shutdown with the promise of repealing Obamacare, something that was never going to happen.
The Republican party's only possible alternative to nominating Donald Trump has now been referred to as Lucifer and Worse Than Lucifer. Others have joked about killing him.
