RNC Chairman Reince Priebus took a bold stand in favor of free speech on Sunday, specifically, Donald Trump’s freedom to speak about your father and his possible connection to the murder of John F. Kennedy, The Washington Examiner reports.

“He’s got a right to talk about whatever he wants to talk about,” said Priebus when asked about Trump’s comments linking Ted Cruz’s father to Lee Harvey Oswald. “However, I don’t think he was ever saying this was some sort of factual information.”

After inviting Ted Cruz to speak at his own assassination on Wednesday, Trump once again raised the possibility that the elder Cruz was involved in Kennedy’s death.

“All I did was point out the fact that on the cover of the National Enquirer, there was a picture of him and crazy Lee Harvey Oswald having breakfast,” said Trump on Friday, according to CNN. “Now Ted never denied that it was his father.”

But like the 35th President’s shocking murder itself, Priebus thinks Trump’s foray into speculative journalism is all in the past.

“As far as I’m concerned, we can move on from it,” said Priebus on Sunday. “He’s talked about it, he’s gotten off from it.”

I’m sure he has!
