The National Enquirer, whose publisher is a friend of Trump’s, ran a nonsense story a while back that Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, in some way helped Lee Harvey Oswald. The story was ridiculous and got no traction. But today, Donald Trump is bringing it up.
“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.”
No one in their right mind thinks the story is true. But Donald Trump does not appear to be in his right mind. On the day Trump might just seal the deal, he is making it very easy for a lot of people to join the #NeverTrump cause.
