Rep Peter King: 'I Think I'd Take Cyanide If Ted Cruz Got The Nomination'

Don't sugarcoat it, Peter, tell us what you really think.

Rep. Peter King, Republican of New York, wins the "Don't Sugarcoat It" Award for Tuesday in his appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe:

"In case anybody is confused: I am not endorsing Ted Cruz. I hate Ted Cruz. I think I'd take cyanide if Ted Cruz got the nomination."

This about a candidate who insisted just yesterday that he, as President, will have a very "productive and positive relationship with Congress."

Pass the popcorn.
