‘Sniveling coward . . . leave her the hell alone’: Cruz is mad now

Powered by Topple

An angry Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Republican presidential rival Donald Trump Thursday for posting an unflattering photo of his wife on social media, calling him a “sniveling coward.”

“I don’t get angry often,” he told reporters. “But if you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that’ll do it every time.”

Then, with a pointed finger, he addressed Trump as though he were standing in front of him.

“Donald, you’re a sniveling coward and leave Heidi the hell alone.”

He wouldn’t answer a reporter’s question as to whether he would support the front-runner if he became the nominee.

“I’m going to beat him for the nomination,” he said.

The brouhaha began when a Cruz super PAC targeted Mormons with a photo of Trump’s wife Melania posing nude for a magazine spread just prior to the Utah primary.

“Donald does seem to have an issue with women. Donald doesn’t like strong women,” he said, calling him a “loud, New York bully.”

“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.”

Trump responded Thursday to the attack in a posting on Twitter that offered no apology for his actions, and even blamed his rival for starting the fight.
