From the May 4 edition of NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers:

SETH MEYERS (HOST): The worst came Tuesday morning when Trump repeated an offensive conspiracy theory about Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz. Trump cited a completely uncorroborated National Enquirer story that claimed Rafael Cruz was with JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald before Oswald shot JFK. Can you imagine what Trump's going to say about Hillary? I think it's time for Hillary to tell us where she was when Biggie got shot, that's all I'm saying. If she has an alibi, I'd love to hear it. Second, this should be a serious moment of introspection for Republicans. How did they get to the point where they're handing their nomination to a race-baiting, xenophobic, serial liar who peddles conspiracy theories and thinks the National Enquirer is a real newspaper? The answer, this is no accident. It is not a fluke. The Republican Party is the party of Donald Trump and has been for years.
