Trump Flogs Conspiracy Theory About Ted Cruz’s Father And Lee Harvey Oswald

For those of you who are Trump supporters, is this the kind of thing you approve of, especially when used against a fellow Republican, not too mention someone who stands for Constitutional principles?

(Politico) Donald Trump on Tuesday alleged that Ted Cruz’s father was with John F. Kennedy’s assassin shortly before he murdered the president, parroting a National Enquirer story claiming that Rafael Cruz was pictured with Lee Harvey Oswald handing out pro-Fidel Castro pamphlets in New Orleans in 1963.

A Cruz campaign spokesperson told the Miami Herald, which pointed out numerous flaws in the Enquirer story, that it was “another garbage story in a tabloid full of garbage.”

“His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being — you know, shot. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous,” Trump said Tuesday during a phone interview with Fox News. “What is this, right prior to his being shot, and nobody even brings it up. They don’t even talk about that. That was reported, and nobody talks about it.”

“I mean, what was he doing — what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death? Before the shooting?” Trump continued. “It’s horrible.”

It’s this kind of nuttbaggery that helps turn people into #NeverTrump. It’s this kind of bat guano insane that will further drive people to saying “well, I was going to put a gasmask on and fill in his name as a vote against Hillary, but, I just can’t do it.”

Even leftist Talking Points Memo thought this was insane, as did sorta left leaning Mediate, which notes

“Crazy!” said Brian Kilmeade cluelessly before moving on, while Trump was unchallenged by any of the show’s hosts on the bonkers claim.

It’s this kind of Trump support that is causing many Conservatives to turn the channel from Fox News. I tend to watch Morning Joe now, or News 14, rather than dealing with 24/7 Trump and all the fluff.

Anyhow, it’s interesting, in a despicable way, how Trump has more venom for Republicans, Conservatives, Constitutionalists, and Libertarians than he does for Hillary, Democrats, Liberals, Socialists, and Progressives.

That’s not the worst thing he says, though. Watch his reaction to Rafael Cruz talking about how voting for Ted is voting according to the word of God. Trump: “I think it’s a disgrace that he’s allowed to say it.” That he’s allowed to say it? The only thing worse than a crank is a crank with a censorship streak.

    Teach irbid no more nutbaggery than the other right wing conspiracy theories LIKE
    The GIANT VOTER FRAUD SCANDAL!! Of which there is never any real proof or convictions
    Or
    THE CLIMATE CHANGE SCANDAL!!!!

    Teach concerning Cruz’s eligibility
    He has Cuban, Canadian and American citizenship
    Should he be considered a natural born citizen of all three?

  2. […] I know this won’t matter to Trump’s ardent supporters, but I doubt it helps with those who haven’t been drinking the Trump Kool Aid. […]

    Rafi Cruz just dropped out of the race. Maybe that’s why he brought Fiorina on, to help with the layoffs.
