You know what really I’d rather not think about? Ted Cruz’s sex life. You know what I’d like to think about less? Donald Trump’s. And yet here we are in a presidential campaign, with smoke still rising from the terror attacks in Brussels, and the two leading Republican presidential candidates are busy fighting over their wives’ looks, backgrounds, and secret lives. If Ted Cruz and Donald Trump could put down their clubs and Twitter feeds long enough to look in the mirror, they’d see the embarrassing images of modern day cavemen looking back at them.
Let’s start with the disclaimer that Heidi Cruz and Melania Trump are both accomplished, intelligent women. Life is full of mysteries, so I couldn’t tell you why these two professional women chose to marry their respective husbands or why they’ve stayed with them. Has Donald Trump cheated on this current wife? Who knows, but we know from his own prideful declarations that he has cheated before, and bragged about it. Has Ted Cruz cheated on his missus? The National Enquirer wants us to think so, but that Trump ally Roger Stone is impugning his integrity proves nothing.
