Ted Cruz throws his father under the Trump bus and gets on board

The president also said he doesn’t “regret” suggesting Cruz’s father was involved in the assassination effort of President John F. Kennedy, which was among his more controversial statements regarding the Texas senator as they both vied for the GOP presidential nomination.

In May 2016, Trump said Cruz’s father is one of the men in the picture above.

 Trump told Fox News: “[Cruz’s] 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?” Trump added at the time. “It’s horrible.”

But Trump doesn’t regret it and Cruz doesn’t mind.

    “But Trump doesn’t regret it and Cruz doesn’t mind.”

    Any more asinine than the conclusion of those Seven Wise Men of the W.C. ?

    else. And on that basis, there was a conspiracy.”–Harold Weisberg
