Ted Cruz Just Took Another Swing at Trump For Going After His Wife--And His Two-Word Blast is a Doozy

Since Trump's retweet of an insulting picture of Heidi Cruz next to his wife Melania on Wednesday night, the feud between him and the Texas senator has gotten personal.

In fact, judging by the way Cruz replied to a reporter today about Trump's attacks, the billionaire is hitting territory that will only heat things up between the two.

Cruz said:

“It's not easy to tick me off. I don't get angry often. But you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that will do it every time.”

Then, he went for the jugular, saying:

“Donald you're a sniveling coward. Leave Heidi the hell alone.”

Trump responded via Twitter:

Donald Trump has provided no proof that the Cruz campaign has coordinated with the “Make America Awesome” PAC. The Senator has denied such an affiliation exists.
