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.

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.

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

  1. Yuge amounts of class there, Donny.

  2. I am waiting for these hypocrites to renounce circulating pictures mocking Hillary Clinton’s appearance, or attacking her spouse.

  3. That picture is 999 words too many.

  4. Real women don’t need Ted to protect us.

  5. I’m not one to believe violence solves much, and stupid displays of machismo are so lame. However, when someone goes out of their way to disparage your spouse/partner I think society grants the insulted couple broad leeway and forgiveness in how they choose to respond. Taking the high road earns a lot of points. But surrendering to a more primitive response isn’t highly faulted. I think Cruz could literally and figuratively knock Trump out of this race. I’d love to see them meet in a nationally televised setting, one where Trump succumbed to his idiotic misogyny and trashed Heidi somehow, or blurted some rude innuendo. Then right there, on camera, Cruz succinctly announces he’s had enough and cold cocks Trump. Lays him out. I have to believe a few million people would leap off their sofas in joy. I know I would, despite thinking Cruz is Trump’s equal on the odious scale. Who the hell disagrees with defending their spouse’s honor?
