Donald Trump on Wednesday night retweeted an image disparaging Heidi Cruz’s physical appearance, the latest jab in a tiff between Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) involving their wives.

Cruz was quick to respond to Trump.
Donald, real men don’t attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life. https://t.co/pprXhIMzUT

The bickering began when Trump on Tuesday night responded to an anti-Trump ad that used a photo of his wife, Melania Trump, in a GQ photo shoot.
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!

In response, Cruz said he had nothing to do with the ad and called Trump a “coward.”
