Donald Trump Threatens to 'Spill the Beans' on Ted Cruz's Wife
By Victor Morton - The Washington Times
Donald Trump, angry at a Facebook campaign showing a cheesecake photo of his wife, threatened to retaliate against the reputation of Heidi Cruz in multiple tweets Tuesday night.
In the first tweet, Mr. Trump berated rival Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, saying “that is some low level ad you did using a picture Melania in a GQ shoot. Be careful or I will spill the beans on your wife.”
Mr. Trump quickly deleted that tweet, though not before it had been preserved for history by numerous political reporters.
Despite the unusually personal nature of the attack, neither Mr. Cruz nor his wife had anything to do with the ad from the Make America Awesome PAC, an anti-Trump super PAC that is legally barred from any ties to Mr. Cruz or his campaign.
But then Mr. Trump doubled down, adding his epithet for Mr. Cruz, though he did not tag the senator’s own Twitter handle this time.
“Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!” he said in the second tweet.
