By now you have all heard about the Trump/Cruz war over 16-year-old nude photos of Melania Trump. The photos were from a GQ shoot and were used in anti-Trump ads targeted at Mormon voters in Utah. The ads, however, were not produced by the Cruz campaign, but instead by a super PAC called “Make America Awesome.” After Trump lost the state, he lost his sh*t on Twitter and threatened Cruz’s wife, but then he took it a step further, What he did next caused CNN anchor Kate Bolduan to completely destroy Trump on Thursday.
On Wednesday evening, Trump retweeted this photo:
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2016
First of all, before I get into what Bolduan said on CNN, let me tell you that even the most attractive people can look horrible if a camera catches them at the wrong time. Furthermore, Melania has A LOT of makeup on in this picture. There is, of course, nothing wrong with that and she is definitely a beautiful woman, but it is unfair to compare a glammed up picture of his wife to a pic of Cruz’s wife with very little makeup on. Cosmetics are an incredible thing, because they can literally transform someone’s face (I’m a woman, I know). Watch this “Power of Makeup” video for more on that if you are curious, but I digress.
So, anyway, on Thursday, while speaking to Trump adviser Stephen Miller, anchor Kate Bolduan said that the Republican frontrunner was “demeaning” his own wife with the nasty tweet, not just Cruz’s:
This retweet coming from your guy has nothing to do with the super PACs, it has nothing to do with donors. This is Donald Trump continuing wanting to talk about this fight after both sides have had their say.
I do wonder why Donald Trump continues to want to talk about this. Because as I look at this retweet as a woman, it’s demeaning to not only Ted Cruz’s wife, it’s demeaning to Melania Trump because she’s got a lot more going for her than just her looks. And you don’t see that in this retweet.
Bolduan is one hundred percent correct, but Miller, of course, goes on to defend his boss and further insult Ted Cruz’s wife.
When I saw this tweet the only thing “spoke” for was Trump’s childish behavior, middle school mentality and misogyny.
