There are three Republicans left in the race for the nomination, but there’s no secret that this is a two-man duel, as Ohio Governor John Kasich has 0 chances at winning. Therefore, it will be either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz dueling with Hillary Clinton in November.
Even though the Texas Senator performed a lot of interesting moves lately, in order to secure as many delegates as possible, Trump’s advantage is big enough to mathematically make him the nominee if he manages to obtain a good score in the Indiana primary.
Trump made a serious statement about Ted Cruz’s father
Considering how important the result from the Hoosier state is, we were expecting to see attacks from both sides on Tuesday, but the two candidates took things to a whole new level, launching almost ridiculous attacks.
The first one was Donald Trump, who took it back to 1963 and accused Rafael Cruz, Ted Cruz‘s father, of being implied in the assassination of President J. F. Kennedy, relying on facts from a report that we don’t know how accurate is.
“And (Ted Cruz‘s) father, you know, was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s, you know, being shot. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous,” Trump said in an interview for “Fox and Friends.” “I mean what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald, shortly before the death? Before the shooting? It’s horrible.”
Even Republicans think this is too much!
Like expected, this statement attracted a lot of critics, including from important GOP members, like South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham. “Any doubt left Trump is completely unhinged? His assertion Ted Cruz‘s father was associated with Lee Harvey Oswald should remove ALL doubt,” she tweeted, according to CNN Politics.
Mark Salter, top aide for John McCain’s 2008 campaign, said that he would back up Hillary Clinton over his own party’s candidate, the same source says. “The GOP is going to nominate for President a guy who reads the National Enquirer and thinks it’s on the level. I’m with her,” Salter said.
Cruz might be right, but it won’t help him that much…
Of course, we were very curious about Ted Cruz‘s opinion on this situation and the Texas Senator opted for a very deep and personal attack on Trump. calling him a “pathological liar,” “utterly amoral,” “a narcissist at a level I don’t think this country’s ever seen” and “a serial philanderer”.
“This man is a pathological liar, he doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies … in a pattern that is straight out of a psychology text book, he accuses everyone of lying,” Cruz said, according to CNN Politics.
On the other side, this could have been just a desperate attempt of winning some delegates, as most polls are pointing to Donald Trump as the winner of the Indiana primary, but still, let the businessman’s attack on Cruz’s father sink in. Is a man who attacks one’s family the President the United States of America need?
