“Donald Trump went on national television and attacked my father,” Cruz told reporters. “Donald Trump alleges that my dad was involved in assassinating JFK. Now let’s be clear. This is nuts. This is not a reasonable position. This is just kooky.”
With a heavy dose of sarcasm, Cruz proceeded to “admit” that his father is connected to several other outlandish conspiracy theories.
“And while I’m at it, I guess I should go ahead and admit, yes, my dad killed JFK, he is secretly Elvis, and Jimmy Hoffa’s buried in his backyard.”

You sure you want to go with that, Ted? Because: there is this other photo, and it was taken at the top of Dealey Plaza right before the limo turned on Houston and JFK got slaughtered.
Rafael Cruz denied it was him at the Trade Mart, but is he going to deny this when the match is much more compelling? There is really no comparison. This is spot-on. There is nothing that doesn't work or gives pause to the match.
We're talking about DNA here. People don't accidentally look that much alike.
So, I am not sure he is going to deny it. He might say, "Yes, that's me, and I was there, like thousands of others, to honor the President and First Lady."
Except, that's not going to work either. It will have no credibility.
First, if it was as simple as that, then why didn't he say so himself? Everybody remembers where they were when Kennedy got killed. I was in the 6th grade at Good Shepherd School in uptown Manhattan, and Brother Anthony, the principal, got on the loudspeaker and announced it to the school.
So, Rafael Cruz should have been forthcoming about this. If he waits until he's forced to admit it- by having his nose held to the grindstone- the admission won't count for squat.
Second, he didn't live in Dallas at the time; he lived in New Orleans. And he wouldn't drive to another state just to watch JFK whisk by in a motorcade. Nobody would.
But third, if he was just a regular guy there to honor President Kennedy, how did he wind up at the top of Dealey Plaza? The motorcade was 10 miles long. He was right there at the end of Main Street as it reached Houston. So, he might as well have been in Dealey Plaza. He was at the door. And, after the limo passed him, all he had to do was cross Houston Street to have a clear view of the Kill Zone. So, how did he know to go there? Did he know in advance that something was going to happen in Dealey Plaza, or did he just get lucky? In all the miles of the motorcade, he just happened to wind up right on the threshold of Dealey Plaza? How? By accident? Sheer chance? Coincidence?
Rafael Cruz has got some explaining to do. He was involved with Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans, and then he traveled to Dallas and was perched near the Kill Zone on November 22, 1963.
