Well, folks, we may have reached peak Trump. The Donald earlier today suggested that fellow-GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s father fraternized—conspired?—with Lee Harvey Oswald before the assassin killed President John F. Kennedy. Trump’s source appears to be a National Enquirer picture of Rafael Cruz passing out pro-Fidel Castro literature with Oswald. The gregarious candidate said on Fox News:
His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being—you know—shot. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous. 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? It’s horrible.
The Cruz campaign told the Miami Herald the Enquirer report is “another garbage story in a tabloid full of garbage.”
