U.S. Rep. Peter King says he will “take cyanide” if Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz wins the Republican nomination.

“I am not endorsing Ted Cruz, I hate Ted Cruz, and I think I’ll take cyanide if he ever got the nomination,” the New York Republican said yesterday during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program.

King, who previously said that any New Yorker who was thinking of voting for Cruz “should have their head examined,” said he cast his vote for Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the New York presidential primary.

When asked what GOP front-runner Donald Trump will have to do to earn his support, King said the brash billionaire would have to “show that he has some comprehension of what’s going on in the world and that he’s not just the guy at the end of the bar throwing in remarks.”
