SEAN HANNITY (HOST): What do you think about -- Ted Cruz just went off on you today, sure you've heard it, I think your campaign actually sent out a statement about it.

DONALD TRUMP: Yeah.

HANNITY: What is your reaction to it?

TRUMP: Well, you know he's losing so badly, he can't take losses, he can't handle pressure, and you know he's not good under pressure. I've watched this during debates and everything else, and he is unhinged. I mean, he's totally unhinged, and this all started on Fox & Friends. I did the show, and they showed me something, Brian and Steve, and you know, the group, they showed me something that was frankly, you know, I thought inappropriate said by the father. And I think it was -- I think most people agree with me, and then -- in the meantime, as you know there was a picture a few weeks ago, and it was all over the place, about Lee Harvey Oswald and his father, a few months before --

HANNITY: Was that verified ever? I saw that somewhere on the internet --

TRUMP: Yeah well, I'll tell you it was a picture put in, and they wouldn't put it in if they could be sued. They would be sued, that I could tell you. They're very big professionals, and it was put in, and by the way -- and Ted Cruz, I don't think denied it at the news conference. But it -- they don't do things unless it can be verified. But if that were true, what was he doing having breakfast or whatever they were doing, three months before the JFK assassination? Why are they doing that? Why is the father meeting with Lee Harvey Oswald?

HANNITY: You know, I have no idea, because I have seen it, but I never thought it was going anywhere. I don't know the truth or veracity of it.
