Megyn Kelly Has Only a One-Word Question for Trump After He Retweets Controversial Criticism of Cruz’s Wife

Megyn Kelly has weighed in on a feud between Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz regarding their wives — and she needed only one word.

“Seriously?” Kelly tweeted in response to a Trump retweet mocking Heidi Cruz’s appearance.

Kelly has been a frequent target of Trump’s Twitter tirades.

The feud between the two GOP candidates began when an anti-Trump super PAC — Make America Awesome — released an ad featuring a risque photo of Trump’s wife, Melania, which they said was targeted at Mormon women in the Utah GOP primary.

Trump blamed Cruz for the ad and threatened to “spill the beans” on Cruz’ wife, Heidi, in response.

“You probably know by now that most of the things that Donald Trump says have no basis in reality,” Heidi Cruz said at a press conference in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Wednesday.

Cruz called Trump’s attack “gutter politics” and said that, given her business background, Heidi “is used to dealing with bullies.”

“Donald Trump doesn’t scare Heidi remotely,” Cruz said at a Wednesday press conference.

Trump retaliated by retweeting a meme mocking Heidi’s appearance, which was the tweet to which Kelly was responding.
