HEIDI TWEET

I am also sick and tired of hearing about him attacking Ted Cruz's wife. First, he retweeted a picture of her that wasn't so flattering next to his wife. Let's remember how this whole thing began now shall we?

Trump was responding to a photo of Melania Trump in GQ magazine nude. The photo was posted with writing on it that said, "Meet Melania Trump, Your Next First Lady, Or, You Could Support Ted Cruz On Tuesday."

Trump Tweeted on March 22, "Lyin' Ted Cruz just used a photo of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin' Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!

He then retweeted that Tweet with two pictures (one of pretty Melania and other of a less than flattering Heidi) that said, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

The next day Ted responded, "Donald, real men don't attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life."

Oh, really. On March 8th, a Cruz supporter and Texas based lobbyist named Andrea McWilliams said on Neil Cavuto:

“If Donald trump is elected, Mrs. Trump will be the first first lady that has ever posed nude; the first first lady that’s the third wife [of the president]; and the first foreign-born first lady in this century.”

Did Ted repudiate her?

Let's go even farther back to August of 2015, prominent Cruz supporter Glenn Beck wrote this in a Facebook post loaded with lies about Donald Trump:

"...the First Lady would be the first to have posed nude in lesbian porno shots;"

https://www.facebook.com/GlennBeck/posts/10153556923133188

Did Ted Cruz ever have Beck disavow this statement or did he disavow this statement prior to accepting his endorsement?

Anyway, moving back to the G.Q. picture. That picture was released by the Make America Awesome Pac run by Liz Mair who used Romney in one of her ads urging people to vote for whoever had the best chance to beat Trump in whatever state. This ad was aimed at Mormon women in Utah.

Ted Cruz said on March 23 on Twitter, "Pic of your wife not from us. Donald, if you try to attack Heidi, you're more of a coward than I thought. #classless https://t.co/0QpKSnjgnE

Ted Cruz is claiming he had no knowledge of the ad. The ad, however, hit the media on March 21 as best I could tell by Google search. No, campaigns aren't supposed to work with Super Pacs, but I saw this ad before Trump Tweeted about it. It was all over the internet. Are you telling me no one alerted Ted to the fact that ad was out there? Ted could have condemned it publicly when he first found out and said he didn't want his name attached to that. Is there any proof Ted ever asked them to take it down?

Further, this is from a Mediaite comment:

"Make America awesome" is the name of the super PAC that ran the ad attacking Trump's wife. One of the official donors is "The Ferry Bridge Group LLC".....a consulting firm out of Alexandria, VA. The managing director of that firm is Bryan McGrath.

Now go to the Breitbart article linked below. There you will find a quote from McGrath stating: 

"Donald Trump is not a Republican......He is a caricature of classless wealth......he is a caricature of the ugly American,"

And.... "McGrath serves as deputy director for the Hudson Institute's Center for American Seapower and is also working for the Cruz campaign.". Get that last part? ".....also working for the Cruz campaign. "

Ted chose Carly Fiorina for his VP, but look what I found:

On Thursday, Carly Fiorina personally emailed her supporters, announcing that she is re-launching Carly for America as a multi-candidate PAC.

Here is where it gets interesting — Make America Awesome and Carly for America have the same mailing address: P.O. Box 26141, Alexandria, VA 22313.

Ted Cruz is not some innocent crusading hero for his wife like some in the media tried to portray hi.

TED CRUZ FATHER

As far as that attack on his father. Trump did not say that unprovoked. Ted Cruz father went after Trump:

Rafael Cruz said Washington didn’t need someone who was willing to buy out people to get things done, referring to his son’s Republican rival, Donald Trump.

“We do not need a deal-maker in Washington,” Rafael Cruz said.

“We need a statesman that will stand on the Constitution, on the rule of law, on limited government, on separation of powers, on making sure that justices that are nominated are faithful to the Constitution and are not going to legislate from the bench,” he continued. “Now, I’m biased; I’m convinced that man is Ted Cruz.”

At one point in his speech, Yaeter noted, Rafael Cruz discussed the four different ways for Christians to decide who to vote for in an election, stressing that to vet a candidate, the voter must look at the candidate’s record, whether he is an able man, a man of truth and if he hates covetousness.

Snip

“If you vote according to the word of God, there’s only one candidate you can vote for; it’s that clear,” Rafael Cruz told the crowd of about 100.

Snip

The Chronicle-Tribune reported Rafael Cruz received a standing ovation when he told the crowd to “stop electing the village idiot” and made numerous jabs against Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s statements on greed and abortion.

“Make sure that instead of voting tradition, you vote conviction,” Rafael Cruz said. “That instead of being swayed by emotionalism, or hot air, or empty words, you look at the record and you vote for the candidates that stand on the principles of the word of God, on the principles of the Constitution.”

AND the day of the primary:

Trump was responding to something that Rafael Cruz said to the American Family Association of Indiana. “I implore every member of the Body of Christ to vote according to the word of God,” he says on a video interview. Then Rafael Cruz went after Trump, saying, “The alternative could be the destruction of America.”

Cruz's dad said Trump could literally destroy our entire country. It's understandable Trump was angry.

Trump referenced an article with a man that looked similar to Cruz's father next to Lee Harvey Oswald. He wondered what he was doing next to him:

"And (Ted Cruz's) father, you know, was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald's, you know, being shot. I mean the whole thing is ridiculous," Trump said in an interview on "Fox and Friends." "I mean what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald, shortly before the death? Before the shooting? It's horrible."

http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/03/politics/donald-trump-rafael-cruz-indiana/

He didn't say Cruz's father was involved in the death or assassination for sure. He saw a picture of what The National Enquirer said was Cruz's dad standing near Lee Harvey Oswald handing out pro-Cuban revolutionary pamphlets shortly before the death and wondered what he was doing there. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this wasn't the day of his death. Trump never said he was there assassinating him.

Despite the fact that the National Enquirer was right about John Edwards and some other things, it is far from a reliable news source. Do I think Trump should have cited that article and went there? No, and there was no benefit to Trump at all from it politically speaking if we are looking at fall out. However, I don't think it's the big deal made out to be by the media.
