Peter King: I Hate Ted Cruz and I’ll Take Cyanide if He’s the Republican Nominee
April 19, 2016
Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.) has never been shy about expressing his loathing for Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), and he was at it again Tuesday on Morning Joe, saying he hated Cruz and would take cyanide if he become the Republican nominee.
Co-host Willie Geist read out a quote from King in which he said any New Yorkers who thought of voting for Cruz in Tuesday’s primary should “have their head examined.”
“What happens tonight on the Republican side? How big does Donald Trump win?” Geist asked.
“First of all, in case anybody is confused, I am not endorsing Ted Cruz,” King said. “I hate Ted Cruz, and I think I’ll take cyanide if he ever got the nomination.”
The Morning Joe panel roared with laughter.
King added he thought the polls would bear out and Trump would win handily in New York, although he added he voted for Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
