Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) shot back at previous Home Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) on Friday after Boehner apparently informed the Texas Republican politician to “go f— yourself” while taping an audiobook of his upcoming narrative. 

“You know yesterday, John Boehner made some news. He suggested that I do something that was anatomically impossible,” Cruz stated throughout his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “To which my response was, ‘Who’s John Boehner?’”

Cruz’s remarks follow an Axios report on Thursday that Boehner went off-script while taping the audiobook of his narrative On The Home: A Washington Narrative.

Previously on Thursday the previous Speaker shared a photo of himself on Twitter holding a glass of white wine with the caption, “Poured myself a glass of something nice to read my audiobook. You can blame the wine for the expletives.”

Likewise in his speech on Friday, Cruz talked about the future of the Republican celebration and forecasted that previous President Donald Trump will continue to be a crucial gamer in it.

“There are a whole lot of voices in Washington who want to just erase the last four years,” Cruz stated. “And they look at Donald J. Trump and they look at the millions and millions of people inspired who went to battle fighting alongside President Trump, and they’re terrified. And they want him to go away.”

“Let me tell you this right now, Donald J. Trump ain’t going anywhere,” he included.
