‘Zodiac Killer’ Ted Cruz Demolished Online For Trying To Help Spread Trump’s ‘Obamagate’ Conspiracy On Twitter



In an attempt to help spread Donald Trump’s favorite conspiracy theory, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) on Wednesday tried to defend the president’s constant rants about “Obamagate” on Twitter. It backfired spectacularly.

Trump has repeatedly attacked former President Barack Obama, claiming “Obamagate” is the “biggest political crime in American history” without offering any details on what that supposed crime is. When asked to explain earlier this month, Trump simply said “you know what the crime is.”

On Wednesday, MSNBC analyst and editor of The Recount John Heilemann replied to Trump’s latest “Obamagate” tweet with another request for an explanation.

That’s when Cruz stepped in. It didn’t go well.

The Texas senator and failed presidential candidate replied with a conspiracy theory of his own, claiming Obama had “personal involvement in abusing FBI to target Trump.”

Cruz was on the receiving end of wild accusations from Trump himself when the two were rivals for the GOP nomination in 2016 ― including a claim that the senator’s father, Rafael Cruz, was somehow involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Heilemann quickly reminded the senator, who has since became a staunch Trump supporter despite their history.

Others also quickly joined in ― some with similar references to Cruz’s history with Trump:
