The Republican strategist behind the anti-Donald Trump ad featuring the billionaire's wife Melania posing nude for a magazine turned to Twitter Thursday evening to rant against the billionaire.
Liz Mair, who operates the anti-Trump Make America Awesome super PAC, ignited controversy when she targeted Utah Mormon voters with a web ad featuring a naked Melania Trump handcuffed to a bed. The photo was snapped as part of a special for GQ Magazine.
Despite the ad being created by Mair who operates an anti-Trump super PAC (the group is not pro-Ted Cruz, simply anti-Trump), Trump accused the Texas senator of being behind the ad. The billionaire warned Cruz to "be careful" or he would "spill the beans" on his wife. On Wednesday night, Trump posted an unflattering image of Heidi Cruz.
Mair turned to Twitter Thursday evening to knock Trump and address controversy over the ad.
Hey @realDonaldTrump: Our ad came down at 5/6PM local time in UT/AZ on TUESDAY, as originally scheduled.— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458860962.0
Only reason people are still writing+talking abt it is YOU;it hasn't run for DAYS. If you want focus to end, stop talking! @realDonaldTrump— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458861069.0
.@realDonaldTrump must think I'm as dumb as the idiots he hires if he thinks I'd keep an ad targeting Mormon women up past Tuesday.— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458861123.0
Clue up, @realDonaldTrump-- not a lot of Mormon women voting in WI. Though I get your own base has worse view of Melania than me/LDS ladies.— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458861181.0
(BTW we had no idea abt that til the ad got covered we were getting emails saying nasty stuff abt Melania from @realDonaldTrump supporters).— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458861309.0
I guess they didn't teach Common Sense at Wharton when @realDonaldTrump was there. Sad!— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458861344.0
. @realDonaldTrump is shockingly dim when it comes to obvious stuff. Another good reason not to let him near the nuke codes!— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458861435.0
Also: You know what @realDonaldTrump should be asking to be pulled? His supporters' threats of violence against me and my family. He won't!— Liz Mair (@Liz Mair) 1458861509.0
