The dems started it by publishing a rather suggestive pic of Trump's wife.
So more of a case of you reap what you sow...

p.s. It is pretty weird though. Imagine in your home country if lurid pix of candidates spouses started being published in an 'official' way... !

Those pictures are reprints of what Ivana posed in penthouse or some other magazine. That set of photos are apparently "tastefully" done, where she pretends to be a sexy stewardess.

Nobody had to dig for it ...

So something as legal and tastefully done as that by one's spouse = BAD, but having one's spouse boning an intern in the Oval Office = Perfectly fine, 'nothing to see, let's forget all about that' ?

If we're invited to judge candidates on their families' supposed lack of morals: I'm suggesting you might consider the Clinton family vs the Trump family.

One thing both women can be soundly criticized for is their exceptionally poor choices they have made with respect to men. Especially Cruz's wife.

Wah Eagles ah, so jaundice hor. What happened to 'Love is blind'? ;

[Should that be 'Love is blind unless you are a billionaire, minging* or not, and can lure in super-primo hot-totty?].

* English slang. Meaning: Strikingly or shockingly ugly. Pronunciation: Ming(ah), as in Ming vase.
Useage: 'She was a right f***ing minger that one John picked up last night!'... etc

Look forward to Ms Cruz's next outing, when the whole campaign machinery will have gone into making her look more fragrant than Miss Trump... hehe...

She's currently undergoing an extreme makeover / plastic / botax session I suspect.

Saw an article about Ted Cruz's reaction.

And I'm like, "dammit, Ted, what the hell are you smoking and why aren't you sharing?"

Despite Donald Trump's strides - the masses seems skewed to Hillary - I bet my money on Hillary - Trump would give a good fight, better than Ted would, but we love the inspiring, motivational, sugar coated speeches, barring any incidences that would have had you indicted, and thus Hillary will get the votes.

Donald seems to have lost the plot a bit over abortions!!!

http://news.asiaone.com/news/world/trump-women-who-get-illegal-abortions-should-be-punished

WASHINGTON- Women who have illegal abortions should be punished, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said Wednesday (March 30), before backpedaling after a firestorm erupted over his latest controversial comment.

Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton branded Trump's remark "horrific," Bernie Sanders called it "shameful" and even major pro-life groups spoke out strongly against punishing women who have abortions.

Trump's comment came during a combative interview on MSNBC, with host Chris Matthews pressing the billionaire reality TV star to specify how a woman should be punished, if abortion were banned in the United States.

"This is the difficult situation you placed yourself in, by saying you're pro-life you want to ban abortion," Matthews said. "How do you ban abortion without some kind of sanction?" Trump tried to sidestep the question, saying he hadn't determined what kind of punishment a woman should face for having an abortion, but acknowledged "the answer is that there has to be some form of punishment." Asked if the man who gets the woman pregnant should be punished, Trump responded, "I would say no." The 69-year-old Trump, who during his political life has been a Democrat and an independent and is only a recent convert to the "pro-life" anti-abortion position, has been accused in the past of flip-flopping on the hot-button issue.

Clinton wasted little time in voicing her disgust at Trump's remarks, the latest in a series from a candidate accused of peddling misogyny and anti-Muslim sentiment on the campaign trail.

Trump is also struggling badly to attract women voters nationally.

"Just when you thought it couldn't get worse. Horrific and telling," Clinton said in a tweet.

As the outcry grew, the Clinton campaign posted a flurry of tweets saying all women deserve equal access to health care, apparently seeking to capitalize on the momentum.

"We can't let someone with this much contempt for women's rights anywhere near the White House," one posting said.

Clinton and other Democratic lawmakers are defenders of a woman's right to obtain an abortion, a procedure still fiercely opposed by many Republicans, four decades after the US Supreme Court affirmed its legality nationwide.

Even Trump's ultraconservative rival Ted Cruz, an evangelical Texas senator, bashed Trump, accusing the real estate mogul of saying "anything just to get attention." Ohio Governor John Kasich, the third candidate in the Republican race for the White House, also weighed in: "Of course women shouldn't be punished," he told MSNBC.

Women's health provider Planned Parenthood, which conservatives oppose for its abortion practices, said Trump "is now inciting violence against women for making a decision that's theirs to make." The Trump campaign later Wednesday issued a statement on abortion, without mentioning his remarks to MSNBC, but reversing the stance he took in the interview.

If abortion were to become illegal under US law, then the doctor or any other person involved in performing the procedure would be legally responsible, the statement said.

"The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb. My position has not changed - like Ronald Reagan, I am pro-life with exceptions," said the statement.

It was the latest twist for Trump, who has taken contradictory or competing stances on issues including torture, bans on Muslims entering the United States, violence at his rallies and the racist Ku Klux Klan movement.

Despite his success in statewide Republican nominating contests to date, a major challenge for Trump is winning support from women voters.

Trump has called women "fat pigs," "slobs" and "disgusting animals," and most recently was castigated in the media for posting an unflattering photo of Cruz's wife next to a photo of his own wife, an ex-model.

Trump has denied being sexist, saying his remarks are just "show business" and that "nobody respects women more than I do." Wisconsin is the next state to host a primary, on April 5. According to a new poll from Marquette University Law School, 40 per cent of likely voters there said they supported Cruz, compared to 30 per cent for Trump.

Seventy percent of registered voters polled said they have an unfavorable view of Trump, compared to about 22 per cent that have a favorable view.
