In the feuding over their wives that erupted this week, Donald Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi, and an aide for the billionaire businessman made good on that promise.
“Spilling the beans is quite simple when it comes to Heidi Cruz,” Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki on Friday.
“Her entire career has been spent working against everything Ted Cruz says that he stands for,” Pierson said, after running through a list of affiliations.
“She 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 said.
The Republican candidates’ feud escalated as Trump reacted to a super PAC ad in Utah featuring a nude photo of his wife Melania by tweeting an unflattering picture of Cruz’s wife. The tweet, with the caption “No need to “spill the beans,” was slammed by the Texas senator who called Trump a “sniveling coward.” Cruz has denied that his campaign had anything to do with the anti-Trump PAC but the GOP front-runner continued to link Cruz to the ad.
“This isn’t about Heidi Cruz,” Pierson noted on MSNBC, “this is about Melania Trump. Melania Trump was the one that was attacked.”
Pierson defended Trump’s attacks on his rival, stating that he “disavowed all super PACs” from the beginning of his campaign and warned other candidates to do the same or they would be held accountable for any attacks.
