During the campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Trump called Cruz “Lyin’ Ted,” attacked his wife’s looks and implied that his father was somehow involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The latest digital dustup between the two presidential candidates began Tuesday, stemming from an anti-Trump ad commissioned by a super PAC that is not affiliated with the Cruz campaign. The ad, which appeared on Facebook, shows Trump’s wife, Melania, posing nude in a photo shoot for GQ Magazine.
Trump responded Tuesday by threatening to “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife. Cruz said in a tweet to Trump that the ad was “not from us.”
After a super PAC unrelated to Cruz published an ad using a suggestive photo of Trump’s wife, Melania, from GQ, Trump laid the blame on Cruz anyway.
“Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!”
