WHOA! After John Boehner Attacked Ted Cruz, Conservative Hero Mike Lee Did THIS!

Top Senate conservative Mike Lee came to the defense of his friend Sen. Ted Cruz in the wake of attacks from former Speaker John Boehner calling Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.” Sen. Lee called into the Mark Levin Show on Thursday when Boehner’s “vile” comments were first reported. He told Levin, “I am livid” – and you could tell by the sound of his voice that he was!

Sen. Lee went off on Boehner and Trump:

I’m appalled that John Boehner would do this. I’ve bit my tongue, I’ve held my tongue for years on John Boehner even when I disagreed with him because I respected him as a person and I respected his office enough to not call him out on it personally. I expressed disagreement with his policies but I never ridiculed him personally. The fact that he has done this is appalling and he should be ashamed of himself and I demand that he apologize.

But more importantly, Mark. This is a wake up call to the American people. This is a wake up call to people who are supporting Donald Trump, thinking that he’s the guy who’s going to rail against the establishment—he’s not. He is the establishment. He’s the golfing buddy, the texting buddy, of John Boehner. The same guy who praises Hillary Clinton, who praises Bernie Sanders. So if you’re out there thinking that Donald Trump is somehow going be the guy who takes down the establishment, think again because quite the opposite is true.

Sen. Lee had a message for the voters of Indiana, “You can show your support for Ted Cruz and your revulsion for this vile statement that John Boehner has made.”

This is what conservatives have been saying for months about the Republican primary. Cruz is the true conservative, anti-establishment candidate and Trump is an establishment wildcard. Just more evidence, this time courtesy of Sen. Mike Lee.

  • And no one buys this nonsense...That's the problem with Cruz..He has been in DC since the last century and yet he denies it. Not just lyin, but stupid....

  • Mike Lee is as stupid as Ted Cruz. Donald Trump had nothing to do with what Boehner said about Ted cruz.. No one in Washington except Mike Lee likes him. Lindsey Graham said if he was shot in middle of congress floor no one would care. Boehner just said what millions of people have thought for months. He pretended to be a christian and carried a bible until all the evangelicals researched him and found out the truth. He is really a member of Seven Mountain Cult his daddy runs. They all voted for Trump. After that he quit carring the bible. If you look in his eyes for a few seconds you will see the evil in him. I have been calling him Son of Satan for a long time and i do't know Boehner.. I can guarantee all of you one thing. He will never be President. All Trump supporters will vote for Hillary and destory the RNC just to keep Lyin cheatin dirty thief
    Ted Cruz from winning.

    • Patricia...I've noticed this for a while....Cruz's face doesn't add up....when he smiles his eyes say something totally different then the rest of his face.

  • John Boehner (Bonehead) is nothing but a drunk, he's establishment true and true. Boehner of
    all people calling Cruz the Live Lucifer should look in the mirror! he's the creator of the toll both system you know you want something passed in the house you must pay a toll to pass go. The thieving drunk also said over his dead body will he let Cruz become POTUS, well John DIE ALREADY!
