Imagine for a moment that you are a beautiful woman who is intelligent and talented. Your husband thinks it is a compliment to you to show a picture of you in comparison to a picture of someone who looks a little witchy. Kind of like the picture below.
You don't believe me? Just look up photos of Sarah Palin. There's one Andrew Sullivan used in an April, 2014, column hawked on the Getty Images site (along with others both attractive and unattractive). I won't show it. But, everyone knows Sarah Palin is a beautiful woman. Well, sometimes not so beautiful even in public with all her makeup on and dressed very attractively.
Now imagine how shallow Donald Trump is to think the comparison to the left shows his wife in a positive light.
Further, think how vile Trump is to show another man's wife in an unattractive photo. Heidi Cruz has never done anything to Donald Trump or Melania Trump. But, because she is married to an opponent, he feels justified in presenting Heidi Cruz in a savage light.
Donald Trump is so base that I feel a few twinges of pity for him. All of his "charm" and civility are only a veneer. Even worse he has never felt the need to ask God's forgiveness. Donald Trump has never felt shame for his actions. Not in ditching two wives. Not in committing adultery with other women. Certainly not in his companies going bankrupt on other people's money four times.
Heidi Cruz goes home to a husband who will love her for better or for worse; for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health. She goes home to children she is teaching how to love others first by respecting those others and then maybe even by sacrificing for them.
Poor Melania Trump what does she go home to?
