Video: Trump threatens to ‘spill the beans’ on Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi responds

Heidi-respondsResponding to an ad put out by the Make America Awesome super PAC that featured a nearly nude Melania Trump, Donald Trump responded with a tweet threatening to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz, Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife.

He referred to Cruz as “lying Ted” and accused him of putting out the ad, which he didn’t.  As many have noted, it’s illegal for campaigns to coordinate ads with PACs.

But like we said, Cruz didn’t put out the ad.

Opponents responded as well:

Heidi was asked about this and said that most of what Trump says “has no basis in reality.’  Here’s video of her comments:

Even when asked if spouses are fair game in a campaign, she stuck to speaking about Cruz’s campaign.

What do you think? Are spouses fair game or is this another distraction and was Trump wrong to threaten Cruz’s wife?
