MAKE INSANE CONSPIRACY THEORIES GREAT AGAIN! Donald Trump Thinks Ted Cruz’s Father Killed JFK, And In No Way Does That Make Him A Crazy Person.

Who knows how many votes could have been salvaged if this important information had been brought to light even a few hours earlier.”
Kudos though to Jake Tapper of CNN for taking the effort to debunk Trump’s smear a bit more seriously.
Flashback: My 2007 Tech Central Station interview with James Piereson on his must-read book, Camelot and the Cultural Revolution: How the Assassination of John F.
