As if things between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz couldn’t get any more heated … it just rose another 100 degrees.
Late Tuesday night and before the results of the Arizona primary, which found Trump notch another victory, he fired off an angry tweet at his closest rival that accused Cruz of using a provocative picture of his wife Melania in a campaign ad.
The Republican presidential front-runner threatened to “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife, Heidi.
Trump deleted the tweet quickly but then reposted a similar one with the same threat.
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!

Cruz responded and called Trump a “coward” and “classless.”

The interesting part is that Cruz is not responsible for the ad that had Trump so miffed.
It was produced by a super PAC called Make America Awesome Again and was targeted at Mormon voters in Utah and featured a near naked picture Melania took for GQ Magazine years ago.
Another twist in the saga of the 2016 Republican presidential race.
