Ann Telnaes Cartoon: Ted Cruz and Monkey Daughters

Ann Telnaes, editorial cartoonist for the Washington Post, thought mocking the daughters of Ted Cruz was appropriate. The Washington Post agreed and published her cartoon.

Eventually, the Leftist outlet decided the cartoon wasn't appropriate. Fred Hiatt, editor of the editorial page, released the following statement:

It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.

Telnaes believed an "exception to the policy was warranted in this case"?

Like Sarah Palin's children were allowed to be abused by the Leftist media?

I suppose that's what she thought. Of course, a conservative's family would be FAIR GAME. No Democrat's kids would ever be FAIR GAME.

I'm glad the ugliness of Telnaes and those her ilk was exposed.

Here's the Ann Telnaes Washington Post cartoon:

It must have pained Fred Hiatt greatly to remove the cartoon. Had he allowed the cartoon to stand, he would have opened the floodgates when it comes to the "leave children out of it" standard.

Over the years, Obama trotted out his daughters as political props when convenient. Should they be drawn as apes on leashes? Would that be OK?

Without question, Hillary's granddaughter, political prop, would be fair game. Can't have that, can we?

So, after a while, it was determined by the Post that Ted Cruz's daughters should not be depicted as dancing monkeys.

Too late.

The Washington Post is a rag. The Leftists should be required to condemn Telnaes and the newspaper.

Has Hillary denounced Telnaes? Has Bernie Sanders?

And Obama, he should call Ted Cruz immediately. Maybe invite him to the White House. Hug him in the Rose Garden. Something.
