Tapper Goes Off: Ridiculous, ‘Shameful’ for Anyone to Push Rafael Cruz Tabloid Stuff

CNN’s Jake Tapper opened The Lead today with a pretty thorough debunking of that absolutely insane Rafael CruzLee Harvey Oswald crap pushed by Donald Trump today. “Every time you think this race cannot get any more ludicrous,” he said, “it does.”

He explained this “bizaree and completely uncorroborated report” and how Trump has bee pushing it before saying, “I cannot believe I need to say the following, but here goes: there is no corroborated evidence that Ted Cruz’s father met Lee Harvey Oswald.”

And he wasn’t done there:

“Any suggestion that Ted Cruz’s father played a role in the Kennedy assassination is ridiculous and, frankly, shameful. Now, that’s not an anti-Trump position or a pro-Cruz position, it’s a pro-truth position!”
