Ted Cruz wasted no time responding to former House Speaker John Boehner’s insults.

The ball was in Cruz’ court after Boehner’s scathing remarks about the Republican presidential candidate, calling Cruz a “miserable son of a b*tch”” and comparing him to “Lucifer.”

At a press conference in Indiana Thursday, Cruz fired back at Boehner, pointing to the former Speaker’s friendship with Republican rival Donald Trump as a reason for his rhetoric.

“John Boehner didn’t abbreviate, he was more expressive. He allowed his inner Trump to come out.” Cruz said.

The Texas senator said Boehner’s comments “reveal everything that is wrong and corrupt in Washington.”

“If you’re wondering who actually has stood up to Washington I think John Boehner has made it crystal clear,” Cruz said, with new vice presidential candidate Carly Fiorina at his side.

“John Boehner in his remarks described Donald Trump as his ‘texting and golfing buddy’. So if you want someone that’s a texting and golfing buddy,” Cruz said, “if you’re happy with John Boehner, Speaker of the House, and you want a President like John Boehner, Donald Trump’s your man.”

The GOP contender also noted that he has “never had any substantive conversation” with the former Speaker whom he said is angry with him for standing up to establishment lawmakers in the 2013 government shutdown.
