While we’re listening to these clowns defending their wives over nonsense, when is the last time Trump or Cruz spent any significant time talking about poverty in America?
There are nearly 47 million people living in poverty – and 15 million are children. African-Americans lead the poverty rate with 26 percent, Hispanics make up 23.6 percent, for Asians, 12 percent and for non-Hispanic whites 10.1 percent.
Poverty is an issue that has been largely ignored by the GOP candidates on the campaign trail and by Trump and Cruz in particular.
Meanwhile, the much-discussed ad was created by Make America Awesome, the work of GOP strategist Liz Mair, who took credit for the ad. She said Cruz had nothing to do with it.
Cruz took to Twitter in response.
“Pic of your wife not from us,” the U.S. senator from Texas said. “Donald, if you try to attack Heidi, you’re more of a coward than I thought. #classless.”
Later, Cruz appeared on CNN. “He went directly after my wife. If Donald wants to get in a character fight, he’s better off sticking with me because Heidi is way out of his league.”
I didn’t start the fight with Lyin’Ted Cruz over the GQ cover pic of Melania, he did. He knew the PAC was putting it out – hence, Lyin’ Ted!

So when does it end? Tomorrow? Next week? And should Cruz or Trump sit in the White House when they engage in such crude behavior?
Frankly, neither candidate is fit for higher office and, sadly, this is the best of the GOP pack. Stop the shameful schoolyard bickering and leave the wives out of it.
What a shame.
What do you think?
