Donald Trump and Ted Cruz exchanged barbs on Twitter Tuesday night after a pro-Cruz PAC ran an ad targeting Trump’s wife Melania.
The ad was released by the Make America Awesome PAC and first reported by Buzzfeed on Monday. The group, headed by Liz Mair, says it is targeting Mormon voters with the Facebook ads.
The ad showed Melania Trump from a GQ photo-shoot.
In response to the ad, Donald Trump tweeted a warning to Ted Cruz.
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!

Trump added this warning: “Be careful Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife.”
On Wednesday, Heidi Cruz attacked Donald Trump saying, “Most of the things he says are not based in reality.”
Heidi Cruz: As you probably know by now most of the things Donald Trump says are not based on reality. I have one job in this campaign and that is helping Ted win this race.”
Last night Donald Trump responded by retweeting this photo of Melania Trump and Heidi Cruz.

Today the Cruzers, Megyn Kelly, the #NeverTrump crowd lost it.
As predicted, the Cruzers and #NeverTrump people are now attacking Donald Trump for responding to Cruz PAC’s and Heidi Cruz’s attacks on Melania and Donald.
You just knew this was coming.
