Scott Walker Defends Ted Cruz After RINO John Boehner Called Him a Jackass

Scott Walker John Boehner

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker defended fellow Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Friday, following a vile attack against Cruz by RINO Speaker of the House John Boehner.

As we reported on Thursday, establishment crony Boehner called Ted Cruz a “jackass” at a fundraiser Wednesday evening for Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO).

During an interview with The Hugh Hewitt Show, Walker was asked by Hugh Hewitt for his reaction to Boehner’s hateful comment against Cruz, who Hewitt called a “friend” and “one of the great constitutional litigators of our time.”

“What do you think about the speaker’s slam on the senator?” Hewitt asked.

“I think it’s just wrong,” Walker responded. “I’m in South Carolina today — I was here at the beginning of the week. Senator Cruz and I and Ben Carson spoke to Congressman Duncan’s event. Even though I don’t know Senator Cruz as well as I know some of the governors, I’ve grown to like and admire him quite a bit on the campaign trail,” Walker told Hewitt.

“Does this rhetoric help at all in the party when people are slamming each other left and right like this?” Hewitt asked.

“No, it doesn’t at all,” Walker replied. “Particularly at a time when so many Americans, rightfully so, are frustrated that we can’t get things done in Washington,” he said.

Walker went on to say that more than voters just being rightfully angry, they are also feeling a “sense of urgency” for Washington politicians to “actually follow through with the campaign promises they made on the trail.”
