Peter King bashes Ted Cruz as a ‘fraud,’ ‘kamikaze pilot’ and a ‘medicine man’

Congressman Peter King (R-N.Y.) does not care for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Appearing on CNN, King called the Texas Republican a “fraud” and compared him to a “kamikaze pilot” who is only concerned about his own self-interests.

“He’s not standing on principle, I don’t know what he’s standing on,” King said. “But he’s standing for a strategy that can’t work. It’s going to personally help him as far as his political status, but it’s going to be bad for the county, bad for the Republican Party.”

When he was asked if his constituents would want him to defund Obamacare, even if it meant a government shutdown, the congressman told Anderson Cooper “no” and “those I’ve spoken to think he’s crazy.”

At the end of the day, Cruz is nothing more than a “medicine man selling goods he knows are phony goods,” according to King.

“I’ve never seen anyone as unpopular in Republican circles as Ted Cruz,” King said.

    Hmmm, when you say ” “kamikaze pilot” who is only concerned about his own self-interests”, I realize that I can’t think of any successful kamikaze pilots who fit this description.
