Ted Cruz had to defend his dad against ludicrous charges of being a Lee Harvey Oswald accomplice.

Tuesday morning during a “Fox & Friends” telephone interview, Donald Trump referred to a story suggesting Rafael Cruz, Sen. Ted Cruz’s father, could be a former accomplice to President John F. Kennedy’s assassin.

The discussion was based on an unsubstantiated report in the National Inquirer.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper took the presumptive Republican presidential nominee to task later in the day, and referred to the Inquirer report as “bizarre” and “completely uncorroborated.”

“Every time you think this race couldn’t get anymore ludicrous it does,” Tapper began.

“I can’t believe I have to say the following, but there is no corroborated evidence that Ted Cruz’s father ever met Lee Harvey Oswald or for that matter any other presidential assassin,” Tapper said. “We in the media don’t talk about it because there’s no evidence of it.”

Tapper observed that because of beating and imprisonment of Raphael Cruz by the Castor regime, he’d denounced the Cuban dictator before the photograph was shot.

“So any suggestion that Cruz’s father played a role in the Kennedy assassination is ridiculous and frankly, shameful,” Tapper said. “Now that’s not an anti-Trump position or a pro-Cruz position. It’s a pro-truth position.”

Tuesday evening Trump had nothing but praise for Cruz after defeating him in the Indiana primary. As a result of his defeat, the Texas senator suspended his campaign. Oddly enough, Ohio Gov. John Katich announced that he was continuing his race despite having no clear path to victory.

Calling him the “presumptive nominee, Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus urged fellow party members to get behind Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton in November.

Cruz spokesman Ron Nehring had some fun at the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s expense.

And the hashtag #TrumpConspiracyTheories soon made the rounds. Here’s an example:

But as Priebus said, playtime is over — this is the moment for Republicans to roll up their sleeves, get behind Trump in an effort to win the White House in November.
