Like many other Republicans, fellow GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz has offered faint condemnation for Donald Trump’s encouragement of violence but, like all the others, he still says he’ll support Trump in the general election.
The only thing that could change that, Cruz says, is if Trump shoots someone.
CRUZ: “I can give you one example of where I would no longer support Donald Trump. If, for example, he were to go out on Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody I would not be willing to support him.”
No word on if this rule would apply if one of Trump’s brownshirts shoots someone on Fifth Avenue, but I assume it doesn’t.
