After being called a "jerk" and told to "go f---" himself by former Republican House Speaker John Boehner, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fired back at the former Ohio representative.

The Texas conservative said that he wears Boehner's "drunken, bloviated scorn" with pride.

Cruz had previously responded to Boehner back in February when word of the former speaker's explicit remarks first surfaced.

"You know yesterday, John Boehner made some news," Cruz said at CPAC at the time. "He suggested that I do something that is anatomically impossible. To which my response was: Who's John Boehner?"
