As desperation sets in, Ted Cruz went on a blistering rant against Donald Trump this morning.
Speaking to reporters in Evansville, Indiana and staring defeat in the face, Cruz rambled,
“This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth,”
The attacks came after Trump repeated a tabloid report tying Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
“Donald Trump is a serial philanderer and he boasts about it,” Cruz said. “This is not a secret, he is proud of being a serial philanderer…Describes his battles with venereal diseases as his own personal Vietnam.”
He continued will Hillary’s line of attack saying that Trump is afraid of strong women and is a “bully” to females.
In response, Trump’s son, Donald Jr., tweeted shortly after Cruz’s morning rant,
That was an impressive meltdown… Desperate but impressive. Reminded me of my 3 year old coming off a sugar high. https://t.co/3lqwHIRWo6

Cruz has not yet answered the question as to whether he would support Trump if he becomes the nominee but the increasingly personal nature of the attacks seem to provide their own answer. He concluded,
“If Indiana does not act, this country could well plunge into the abyss,” Cruz said.
