Trump attack on Heidi Cruz plays into Democrats' message

NY Times:
Donald J. Trump has gotten in a skirmish with Senator Ted Cruz over comments he made about Mr. Cruz’s wife, Heidi. Mr. Trump has a history of dismissing and disparaging women and their looks.

Donald J. Trump has gotten in a skirmish with Senator Ted Cruz over comments he made about Mr. Cruz’s wife, Heidi. Mr. Trump has a history of dismissing and disparaging women and their looks.
Donald Trump’s nasty skirmish with Ted Cruz about Mr. Cruz’s wife, Heidi, has played into a Democratic strategy to defeat Mr. Trump in November: to portray him as an unabashed sexist.
It has been a political disaster for Trump on the left and the right.  The rabid Trump  supporters are the only people who seem to think it is a good idea, although there have been some liberal commentators who have been demeaning in their criticism of Cruz's support for his wife.  It has clearly been one of the ugliest political attacks in my memory.
