A couple of days ago the ever classy Donald Trump delivered one of his trademarked Twitter threats to Ted Cruz.
Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!

What brought this on was a very low budget, anti-Trump super PAC called Make America Awesome using a 20 year old GQ photo of Melania (Knauss) Trump in a very un-First-Lady-ish pose. Somehow, inside of Trump’s mind, this third party attack became an attack perpetrated by Ted Cruz.
Anyway, today the Trump campaign made good on its threat to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz:
Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson rattled off a list of attacks three days after Trump first made the threat.
“Spilling the beans is quite simple when it comes to Heidi Cruz,” Pierson said in an interview with MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki.
“She is a Bush operative; she worked for the architect of NAFTA, which has killed millions of jobs in this country; she was a member on the Council on Foreign Relations who — in Sen. Cruz’s own words, called a nest of snakes that seeks to undermine national sovereignty; and she’s been working for Goldman Sachs, the same global bank that Ted Cruz left off of his financial disclosure,” Pierson said.
“Her entire career has been spent working against everything Ted Cruz says that he stands for,” she added.
This is the interview. I refuse to transcribe it as my health plan doesn’t cover spontaneous cerebral combustion:
Let’s see. Ted Cruz was a “Bush operative.” That’s how they met. The rest of the statement is simply a dog whistling exercise for anti-Semites (the Goldman Sachs association has nothing to do with her employer, per se, and everything to do with the Jewish-sounding surnames) and the black helicopter crowd (NAFTA and Council on Foreign Relations). If you weren’t aware of anything in this statement you really should wake up more often.
This crap just demonstrates the intellectual vacuousness of both Pierson, who apparently auctioned her soul on eBay for this job, and the Trump campaign. That a woman accomplishing something is a smear in their eyes tells you all you need to know about the man at the top of the campaign.
