Donald Trump isn't letting Ted Cruz's wife out of his crosshairs just yet: On Wednesday night, he retweeted an insult about her looks, reports Mediaite. The tweet reading, "A picture is worth a thousand words" shows side-by-side images of Heidi Cruz and Trump's wife, Melania—the former image unflattering, the latter very flattering. Ted Cruz responded with a tweet of his own: "Donald, real men don't attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life."

All of this comes after an anti-Trump super PAC mocked Melania Trump by using an image of her from a magazine's nude photo shoot. Trump blamed the Cruz campaign—which denied any knowledge of it—and threatened to "spill the beans" about Heidi Cruz. She doesn't seem fazed by the threat, however. "Most of the things Donald Trump says have no basis in reality,” she said on Wednesday, per the Hill. "We are not worried. We’re focusing on our campaign, and we’re going to continue to do that.” (More Donald Trump 2016 stories.)
