Senator Ted Cruz went off the rails today, I guess in response to Trump claiming his father murdered JFK, and in a very acidic press conference tore the Donald apart.

Then when he opened it up to reporters, he refused to answer MSNBC's Hallie Jackson's question about whether he'd support Trump as the GOP nominee.

When Ted Cruz wrapped up his presser, he brought up the movie Back To The Future II, and said, "We are looking, potentially, at the Biff Tanner Presidency."

Hallie Jackson jumped in as the first questioner and asked, "Senator, these are some of the strongest words you’ve used against Donald Trump yet. You know I have been with you, I heard you talk about him. Today feels different for you. So, I’m going to ask you a question and you’re going to say I sound like a broken record, and you’re going to say that Donald Trump is not…"

Ted Cruz cut in and said, "If you sound like a broken record, does someone else have a question?"

"But Senator, why not say once and for all..."

Cruz dissed Hallie because he's refusing to say he'll endorse Donald Trump as the nominee.

Good pestering, Hallie.

"You have asked one already, Hallie."

"Will you support him as the nominee? I don’t understand why you won’t answer the question, Senator. If you say he’s a liar, Jess, I’m sorry, but if you say he’s a pathological liar and you say...."

"Hallie, you have asked one already."

"But why not definitively say?"
