A big controversy between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz ensued Tuesday night as Trump threatened to “spill the beans” about Heidi Cruz. He is upset that Cruz allegedly used a picture of Melania Trump in an ad.
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!

The only problem with Trump’s accusation is that it did not come from Cruz, but an anti-Trump Super PAC. Those with the most common knowledge of election ethics know that it is already illegal for any candidate to have any type of communication with a Super PAC.
.@realDonaldTrump Hi Donald, I know you're really upset about that ad, but it was Make America Awesome's, not Ted Cruz's.

Despite this and the fact that Heidi Cruz did nothing to provoke this debate, several Trump supporters still resorted to ad hominem attacks against her.
.@tedcruz We know all about your wife's work for the New World Order! I'll be praying imprecatory prayers that YHWH removes you from office

I thought Trump said he respects all women. Apparently not towards Heidi Cruz.
