It seems that Donald Trump is being criticized by the media for attacking Ted Cruz’ wife’s looks. But what the media doesn’t mention is that Cruz started this whole debacle by doing a campaign ad where he showed Trump’s wife n a sexy pose done years ago when she was a top model.Cruz’ headline read ” Meet Melania Trump Your Next First Lady.”
Then on the bottom of the ad Cruz says ”
“or you can Support Ted Cruz on Tuesday” as you see in the above photo. It was Cruz’ attempt to take a punch at Trump via his wife indicating that she was a woman of loose morals to pose provocatively in this photo.
In essence Cruz was attempting to pander to the evangelicals who may take offense with this pose. But what Cruz didn’t expect was that his Toxic plan backfired on him as his opponent certainly had something to say about his wife Melania being put up for ridicule in his political opponent’s campaign ad. It should also be noted that Melania’s photo occurred close to a decade ago before she was Mrs. Donald Trump.
So in defense of his wife and to express his displeasure, Donald tweeted “Lyin Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a GQ shoot in his ad. Angered, Trump then went on to warn Ted Cruz to be careful or that he would spill the beans about his wife.
What Trump was most likely referring to was the above headline which indicates that a police officer found Heidi Cruz sitting on an expressway with her head in her hands. Perhaps she may have been having some type of mental breakdown at the time, which was 10 years go. So if Cruz was going to bring up Melania’s photo from 10 years ago, Trump decided that he too, would bring up something from Heidi’s past.
Then Trump decided against “spilling the beans” about Heidi’s issues and just put up a photo of Heidi along side of Melania. What Trump was really saying was that his wife is more beautiful. The meme received a lot of criticism because it was a bad photo of Heidi Cruz, while it was a good photo of Melania in repose.
Then Cruz had the audacity to cry to the press that Donald was awful. Cruz then displayed false bravado and toughness he said” no one messes with my wife or my kids.” If Cruz wanted wives off limits then he shouldn’t have started with Melania un the first place.
In essence, it showed his true character, It showed that of someone who was an Instigator- one of the 30 types of Toxic Terrors I discuss in my best -selling book Toxic People.
Ted Cruz was willing to dish it out and start the dispute. But when someone fought back, Cruz acted Toxic and cried that this was unfair and how mean Donald was being by insulting his wife. Cruze was the one who insulted Melania. It was childish and immature and speaks volumes about his lack of character in this situation.
So Donald Trump retweeted photos of his wife and Heidi Cruz, using a more flattering photo of Heidi, which showed they were both attractive women. This was his gesture and way of wanting to stop the feud and lay off any wife criticism.
But in this entire feud where so many have commented and have pointed a finger at Donald trump, most have failed to realize or recognize that it was Cruz who started it all by first posting a provocative photo of Melania with an equally provocative headline and caption. That is what I wanted to point that out in this blog.
Once again, as a journalist and body language expert who regularly appears in the press to provide my expertise, I want to remind my readers that this blog is not a political statement towards one candidate or another. I remain objective in my reporting and observations.
