I’m Surprised Trump Didn’t Claim Cruz’s Dad Was Friends With John Wilkes Booth
by

It doesn’t surprise me that Donald Trump would claim that Ted Cruz’s father was seen with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before JFK’s assassination.

Honestly, I’m only surprised that Trump didn’t claim that Rafael Cruz wasn’t part of John Wilkes Booth’s conspiracy to assassinate President Lincoln.

Why does Trump do such things? For the same reason that he says he could commit mass murder in Times Square and not affect his poll numbers. Because he can.

These are the excretions of someone who lives in the gutter. But because Trump lives in any palace of choosing and because he’s been on TV for so long, a critical mass of this country accepts what he says at face value no matter how stupid it is.

All I can say to those who see fit who support Trump is he is your man then must take everything that comes with him – denigrating Cruz’s wife’s appearance, linking his father to a presidential assassin, mocking a reporter with a disability, condemning a former presidential candidate who was held captive in a POW camp for six years, refusing to criticize David Duke, praising Planned Parenthood in one breath and then calling upon women who have abortions to be imprisoned in the next and threatening riots if he doesn’t win the RNC Convention. If you agree with any of these sentiments Trump has expressed that’s your choice. Just don’t call yourself a conservative.
