It’s wasn’t long ago (in March) when Donald Trump made public comments about Heidi Cruz, the wife of fellow presidential candidate Ted Cruz. On Twitter, Trump warned the Texas senator that he should “be careful” or he would “spill the beans on your wife.” Trump was responding to a Facebook ad (paid for by an anti-Trump super PAC, Make America Awesome) which featured his wife Melania posing nude for GQ. In response, Trump retweeted an unflattering photo of Mrs. Cruz, a Harvard Business School graduate and senior executive at Goldman Sachs, next to the glamorous GQ photograph, with the caption “the images are worth a thousand words.” See above.
Cruz defended his wife by shaming Trump: “Real men don’t try to bully women. That’s not an action of strength. That’s an action of weakness. It’s an action of fear. It’s an action of a small and petty man who is intimidated by strong women.” A Trump spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson, did “spill the beans.” Pierson said in an interview: “She [Heidi Cruz] is a Bush operative; she worked for the architect of NAFTA, which has killed millions of jobs in this country; she was a member on the Council on Foreign Relations who — in Sen. Cruz’s own words, called a nest of snakes that seeks to undermine national sovereignty; and she’s been working for Goldman Sachs, the same global bank that Ted Cruz left off of his financial disclosure.” Pierson added: “Her entire career has been spent working against everything Ted Cruz says that he stands for.” Senator Cruz is speaking at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where Trump was just officially voted GOP nominee for president.
