In a tweet that sounded more like it came from a mobster than a U.S. presidential candidate, Donald Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Ted Cruz's wife.
After quickly deleting the tweet, Trump reposted a revised version Tuesday night. Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!” the GOP frontrunner wrote, revealing that he removed the tweet not because he thought better of it, but because he wanted to add "Lyin' Ted Cruz." Trump was seemingly referring to the Facebook ads by anti-Trump super PAC targeting Melania Trump's nude appearance in a GQ spread from years ago. Senator Cruz quickly responded: “Pic of your wife not from us. Donald, if you try to attack Heidi, you’re more of a coward than I thought. #classless”
A judge in Ohio ruled that 17-year-olds who will turn 18 before the general election in the fall can vote in Ohio’s primaries on Tuesday. Obviously, this only includes those who have already preregistered to vote, but according to the Secretary of State in Ohio, 16,000 17-year-olds in the state are already registered. Experts say this boost of young voters could potentially be good news for Bernie Sanders, who has done well among young voters in other states. At least 20 other states in the U.S. allow 17-year-olds to vote in primaries, but Ohio’s election chief had interpreted Ohio’s laws in a way that kept 17-year-old’s presidential votes from counting. The judge's ruling opening the elections back up comes in response to a suit filed by a group of nine 17-year-olds, who disputed the interpretation. "This is a huge victory for 17-year-olds across Ohio," an attorney for Bernie Sanders' campaign told Mashable. Discuss
A handful of protesters were reportedly shoved out of a Trump rally after showing up to protest. During a Donald Trump rally in Louisville, Kentucky, protestors interrupted Trump's 30-minute speech. Local news captured video of the Republican frontrunner saying "go get 'em" in reference to the protestors. The local Courier Journal said,
Trump was interrupted more than half a dozen times by protesters raising signs and shouting.
“Get ‘em the hell out of here. Get out. Get out,” Trump yelled into the microphone as his security team and police officers led people away and the crowd cheered loudly.
“Out. Out. Out.”
The video then shows a crowd of white people shoving around a few black protesters, including a black woman who says she was verbally accosted by Trump supporters yelling racial and gender obscenities. The local news station, WLKY, spoke with the woman on the phone Tuesday night. They did not disclose her name, but they say she is doing well and she is just trying to process everything.
