Ted Cruz Channels Michael Douglas In 'American President' To Defend Wife Heidi

Ted Cruz channelled Michael Douglas during a CNN interview Wednesday to defend wife Heidi amidst his feud with Donald Trump.

This after Trump threatened to "spill the beans" about his wife, accusing the Texas senator of dragging Trump's wife Melania and her nude British GQ shoot into the presidential race.

Cruz responded calling the GOP front-runner a "coward" and repeated Douglas' line from the 1995 film 'The American President' almost verbatim.

"If Donald wants to get in a character fight, he's better off sticking with me because Heidi is way out of his league," Cruz said.

Douglas' President Andrew Shepherd said the line in the 1995 Aaron Sorkin-scripted drama after Richard Dreyfuss' character attacked his love interest, played by Annette Bening.
