If there were awards for politics, Ted Cruz would surely win “Most Spineless Performance by a Senator” for the way he’s groveled before Donald Trump over the past two years.
During the 2016 Republican primaries, Trump dubbed the Texas senator, “Lyin’ Ted” and tweeted a disgusting meme mocking his wife’s looks.
Trump even spread a ridiculous National Enquirer story that claimed Cruz’s father, Rafael, was involved in the Kennedy assassination.
“His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being — you know, shot. I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous,” Trump said in 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.”
Even after Trump defeated Cruz for the Republican nomination, he still stood by the conspiracy.
“All I did is point out the fact that on the cover of the National Enquirer there was a picture of him and crazy Lee Harvey Oswald having breakfast,” he said.
Don’t mess with Texas.
