I suppose it had to happen.
The Donald Trump allied National Enquirer ran a ludicrous story a short while ago claiming that Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, was linked to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy:
The only real evidence is this image which purports to show someone which the National Enquirer says is Rafael Cruz next to Lee Harvey Oswald.
And, of course, the National Enquirer claims this link is mentioned in the Warren Commission report.
Keep in mind that the National Enquirer has been functioning as an extension of the Trump campaign. It was that tabloid, run by Donald Trump’s butt buddy, a guy ominously named David Pecker, that ran a scurrilous hit piece on Cruz… all the while ignoring Trump’s alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl, his close friendship with proven pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and his demonstrated pedophilic and incestuous leanings.
This is crazy pants country, in other words, it is the native domain of Donald Trump.
“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.”
Naturally, Trump made this claim on FoxNews and naturally, no one said anything:
“Crazy!” said Brian Kilmeade cluelessly before moving on, while Trump was unchallenged by any of the show’s hosts on the bonkers claim.
There are only two explanations for Trump’s behavior… an only one for FoxNews’. Trump either believes virtually every conspiracy theory that he encounters, which makes him unqualified for living outside a mental institution, or he knows a significant number of his followers believe it which makes him a poltroon and should make his followers ineligible to vote.
