This is quite stunning even for a politician as low as Ted Cruz. Senator Cruz has a prime opportunity to highlight the intolerance of the left. Instead he choses to attack Donald Trump:
At a media availability in Chicago, Ted Cruz basically blamed Donald Trump for the violence and protests that occurred earlier in the day at a Donald Trump rally at the University of Illinois-Chicago. The rally had to be cancelled due to safety concerns (link)
Yes, Ted Cruz advocates the political equivalent of her skirt was too short, and she deserved to be raped for it.
Ted Cruz is such a self-serving, self-righteous opportunist that he just doesn't even know when he's making a fool of himself.

But Senator Ted Cruz wasn’t alone taking the opportunity to blame Donald Trump and praise the behavior of leftists, MoveOn.Org, Black Lives Matter, F**k The Police, Occupy Wall Street and professional Anarchists.
Fox News pundits, led by Megyn Kelly, were quick with the narrative to pile on, claiming Donald Trump should reasonably accept the United States no longer allows freedom of association, and free speech should be curtailed in favor of inclusive, more politically sensitive, speech.
After the anarchists were able to shut down the venue, a contingent of the organized faction moved to Trump Tower where they stood and cursed at families entering and exiting the hotel.
Cruz is on tv blaming the violence in Chicago on trump. I just lost all respect for Cruz. I was wrong abt him. I'm disgusted

#Chicago is exactly why people are voting for Trump. "We The People" are fed up with the pandering to groups who are violent & destructive!
