Ted Cruz Starts Toxic Wife Feud By First Posting Photo of Melania and Then Cries Victim When Trump Fires Back

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 ”

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.

  1. You do know a super-PAC unrelated to Cruz posted that initial post, right? It’s an anti-Trump group that Cruz has nothing to do with. Cruz had nothing to do with it until Trump attacked his wife. Cruz is an anti-Muslim bigot who would happily kill scores of innocent people (carpet-bombing), but he didn’t start this.


  2. I love your insight on body language but as the comment above talks about and was general knowledge, it wasn’t Cruz. (Yes, I’m a Cruz supporter.) You always claim to not get involved in politics, only what you observer, Well, this piece makes me wonder about your impartiality. I’d love to read your response to this. -Jim.


    1. There have been so many times she’s taken a political stance. She won’t come out and say it, but she’ll give some sort of attribute to someone that isn’t body language, it’s her assumption to their motives or what they are thinking and it’s not positive when she doesn’t like them. Or it is positive when she does like them. It was a while back but she posted something about someone she didn’t like and would say things like that person having a heavy Neanderthal brow or something like that. It’s glaringly obvious that she disliked that person.

      There was another article here, I think about Trump where she obviously is against him but speaks positively of Cruz. If she really was apolitical in her posts here she wouldn’t do stuff like that. In post after post she does this and I don’t even think she’s aware of it.


      1. Heavy Neanderthal brow is a description and has nothing to do with whether or not I like a person. This is Not political. It is an observation. I am very aware of all that I do and I just report what I see and make my analysis so please don;t read into which candidate I support or do not support based on my observations. I can assure yu that since I have analysed political candidates since the 80’s this has always been the case.


    2. By the way Jim-
      Stating the obvious: Tom Cruz started it–is not being political, it’s more like being a mother and calling out two children and reminding who started what.


  3. Lillian you do not have proof that it was Cruz so this interpretation is not valid and it also has nothing to do with body language. Sorry Lillian, you flopped with this one! I suspected it was Cruz and it may well indeed be him…but we just do not know. End of story.


  4. So the Cruzbots are out. BTW, Cruz at no time asked that those ads STOP. He merely claimed he had nothing to do with it. Just like he had nothing to do by lying to voters that Ben Carson was dropping out of the race, and by sending voters yellow “violation” cards. The Cruz, canadian born, not natural born American, is a liar through and liar. NOT TO BE Trus-ted, Bus-ted over and over for his nefarious ways.


  5. Heidi Cruz was probably found in that state after realizing her husband cheated.
    Also what I find interesting is since the National Enquirer story came out- after media outlets like Breitbart had continuously said they knew about the cheating scandal but passed and it came from Camp Rubio- Cruz is still blaming Donald Trump. Also what I find fascinating is: not once did Cruz ever say, ” I never cheated on my wife”


    1. Someone forwarded me an analysis of the denial by Cruz of the charge of cheating. In summary, it was noted that instead of issuing a simple denial, he went on and on about how this was Trump’s doing, how it has hurt his family, how he is very indignant, etc. Almost all protest and casting blame on someone else rather than a simple denial. The analyst suggested that his responses merit further investigations. And, I certainly agree as I believe that Cruz engaged in those, and perhaps more, affairs. Clinton lied and denied, Ted Haggard lied and denied, John Edwards lied and denied, Gary Hart lied and denied, Bill Cosby lied and denied, and so on.


      1. Yes. They all lied and they were busted lying. Called liars by the media. John Edwards even covered his crotch when he denied his affair and that was observed by… Dr. Lillian Glass

        Edwards went to trial and Clinton.. Well.. When you’re a Clinton and commit a crime.. you know how that works.

        But the attention is on Cruz now. Cruz is a hypocrite.


  6. I should also add, it was a group who supports who I won’t name because they don’t deserve our attention–no, I am not a Trump supporter- I support women. Anyhow, Cruz never once condemned the ad, only went on the defense.


  7. If only 2 people were running for president In some galaxy far far away, I would force down the vomit and vote for Trump before I would vote for Ted Cruz. There isn’t enough space to describe this dangerous and evil man.
