If there’s anything more absurd than Donald Trump citing the National Enquirer’s report that Rafael Cruz was somehow connected to Lee Harvey Oswald and the Kennedy assassination, it’s PolitiFact’s decision to examine the claim seriously.

As long as we’re taking conspiracy theories seriously, check out the timestamp on PolitiFact’s tweet, showing that it was posted after the first polls had closed in Indiana. Who knows how many votes could have been salvaged if this important information had been brought to light even a few hours earlier.
@PolitiFact pants on fire? He still could have been involved….. 🙂

Good point. Imagine if he’d managed to get his hands on the country’s nuclear codes.
