Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) clashed on Tuesday as the legislator asked his Republican rival to debate on Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor while Trump threatened Cruz online. “Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad,” Trump posted on Twitter. “Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!” As The Blaze reported, Trump actually posted the threat twice; the original version included Cruz’s Twitter address.
Commenting on Sen. Cruz’s twitter jab, the billionaire businessman said, “And they say I’m the one who plays dirty. Let me tell you something, I understand how my rivals’ minds work. I know they feel like failures with me coming into the race at the last minute and soaring to leadership almost immediately, but you can’t really blame others for something that’s your own fault, now can you? And the way they’re trying to get back at me and bring me down with them is by making it personal, which I’m not afraid to do, as you all know. So, I don’t mind when people like Ted Cruz want to get personal. But see, the thing is, if you wanna play that way, you have got to be ready for the consequences. And I specialize in consequences.”
“My wife is smoking hot, that’s no secret,” Trump boasted. “She was a super model, for God’s sake. Ted’s wife, on the other hand, not so much. I think we all agree on that one. But be that as it may, I’d like to say that Ted Cruz better watch how personal he gets with Melania because he forgot to clean up his own backyard. I mean, I have friends everywhere, in the business world, in media, now also in politics. I can dig up anything about anyone, literally anything about anyone. And let me tell you, Heidi Cruz looks like a woman who likes to take pictures. Combine that with her daddy issues, which she obviously has since she’s married to a pathological liar and traditionalist like Ted Cruz, and you’ve got yourself a selfie-crazy wife, I’m telling you.”
The media mogul went on to repeat his warning: “So I say again – you better watch how far you want to take this Ted, you know I never wear gloves in an argument. I don’t even own gloves, for that matter.” Trump then added one more jab before finishing the interview, saying, “And you know what I think? Heidi’s nudes wouldn’t even be a problem if she was hot like my wife. Then I’d break ‘em out either way. This way, I’m worried about people’s health, there’s going to be a lot of heart attacks and epilepsy seizures if I dig up and post her un-Photoshopped bathroom selfies. And as future President of the United States, it’s my job to worry about the nation’s health. So, Heidi, a little friendly advice: either hit the gym or control your husband.”
