Ted Cruz Slams Washington Post for Depicting His Daughters as Monkeys in Cartoon
Ted Cruz is blasting the Washington Post after a new cartoon emerged poking fun at his daughters.
The Washington Post has pulled a political cartoon that depicted Senator Ted Cruz as Santa with an organ grinder and his two young daughters as dancing monkeys.
Cruz lashed out on Twitter:
The cartoonist, Ann Telnaes, said she included seven-year-old Caroline Cruz and four-year-old Catherine in the cartoon after they were featured in their dad's Christmas campaign ad. The Washington Post cartoonist tweeted:
Ted Cruz has put his children in a political ad- don't start screaming when editorial cartoonists draw them as well. https://t.co/7hafBacOiKDecember 22, 2015
But the newspaper pulled the cartoon off its website, saying its policy is "to leave children out of it."
Wash Post cartoon featuring @tedcruz’s children is disgusting. The Post saying the kids are “fair game” is even worse.December 23, 2015
Cruz later thanked Rubio on Twitter:
