Fox News host Megyn Kelly can’t believe that Donald Trump is attacking Ted Cruz’s wife on social media.
“Seriously?” she tweeted while quoting a Trump tweet featuring a meme comparing the appearance of Heidi Cruz and Melania Trump.
“No need to spill the beans. The images are worth a thousand words,” the meme, which Trump retweeted, read.
Kelly took time from a family vacation in Florida to express shock at Trump’s tweet. Kelly and Trump have a checkered history stemming from a question regarding Trump’s treatment of women at last summer’s GOP debate.
It all started on Tuesday night when Trump tweeted a cryptic warning to “lyin'” Ted Cruz on Tuesday, threatening to “spill the beans” on the Texas senator’s wife.
In a tweet posted as polls closed during the Western Tuesday primaries, the GOP frontrunner for president wrote, “Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a GQ shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!”
The original tweet was a response to the Super PAC Make America Awesome’s meme, in which Trump’s wife is pictured naked on a fur pelt, accompanied by the words, “Meet Melania Trump, your next first lady. Or you could support Ted Cruz on Tuesday.”
Cruz responded via Twitter moments after Trump’s tweet. “Pic of your wife not from us. Donald, if you try to attack Heidi, you’re more of a coward than I thought. #classless.”
