As soon as President Trump tweeted Saturday morning that he would be releasingthousands of classified documents related to former President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, Twitter jokingly erupted in speculation of how Sen. Ted Cruz might respond.
The Cruz-Kennedy assassination connection was fueled during the 2016 campaign by a National Enquirer report that claimed that Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, was photographed with Lee Harvey Oswald before Kennedy’s killing. Then-candidate Trump further fanned the flames of the conspiracy theory when he suggested that Rafael Cruz had ties to Oswald.
At the time, Cruz’s campaign dismissed the report as a “false” claim in a “tabloid full of garbage,” and the senator mocked the allegation. “Yes, my dad killed JFK, he is secretly Elvis, and Jimmy Hoffa is buried in his backyard,” Cruz said.[contentcards url=”http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/ted-cruzs-father-to-be-exposed-twitter-jokes-impending-jfk-assassination-files-release-will-prove-conspiracy-theory/article/2638253″ target=”_blank”]
