Former House Speaker John Boehner commented to his spokesman David Schnittger about Ted Cruz's refusal to endorse Trump during Cruz's speech at the Republican National Convention.

His response: "Lucifer is back."


Boehner was alluding to a comment he made in April, in which he slammed Cruz, calling him "Lucifer in the flesh." 

Cruz apparently drew the ire of Republicans by his refusal to endorse Trump — he was snubbed at the luxury suite of GOP donor Sheldon Adelson.

Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin said his refusal would be "career-ending." Meanwhile, Cruz defended his refusal, saying he would not beg for Trump's approval like a "servile puppy dog."

Boehner retired from Congress in October 2015, but remains active in support of Republicans. Politico reported that Boehner is starting a cross-country bus tour in support of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
