An angry Sen. Ted Cruz blasted Republican presidential rival Donald Trump Thursday for posting an unflattering photo of his wife on social media, calling him a “sniveling coward.” “I don’t get angry often,” he told reporters. “But if you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that’ll do it every time.” Then, with pointed finger, he addressed Trump as though he were standing in front of him. “Donald, you’re a sniveling coward and leave Heidi the hell alone.” He wouldn’t answer a reporter’s question as to whether he would support the frontrunner if he becomes the nominee. “I’m going to beat him for the nomination,” he said. The brouhaha began when a Cruz super-PAC targeted Mormons with a photo of Trump’s wife Melania posing nude for a magazine spread just prior to the Iowa primary.
