Yesterday in sentences we never thought we’d be writing, GOP front-runner Donald Trump started a Twitter feud with Ted Cruz over a slut-shaming Facebook ad featuring his wife Melania. Though Cruz actually had nothing to do with the ad, Trump said he’d “spill the beans” about Heidi Cruz if the Texas senator wasn’t careful.

Now it appears these mysterious “beans” may be that Trump doesn’t think Heidi is very attractive. On Wednesday night Trump turned to the retweet, his favorite passive-aggressive attack method, to point out the irrefutable truth that Melania is prettier than Heidi (when Heidi screws up her face into some weird pose never seen in real life).

Cruz, who earlier today fulfilled this feud’s pop culture reference requirement by stealing a line from The American President, contributed his own retweet:

Then responded like a true gentleman (or whatever you’d call a presidential candidate fighting with another candidate about his wife on social media).

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s installment, in which Amber Rose and Khloe Kardashian will get involved for some reason.
