Ted Cruz Blasts Washington Post Cartoon of His Age 5 and 7 Year Old Daughters as Monkeys … The Post Says Kids are “Fair Game” is Even Worse



If you ever need any reminder that there is a political double standard when it comes to the media reporting on Democrats and Republicans, one needs to look no further than the WAPO and their disgusting cartoon in going after the young children of GOP presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz. The WAPO thought it perfectly okay to portray Cruz’s two young children as toy monkeys in a cartoon and stated it was perfectly fine to use them like this and called the, “fair game”. Needless to say in the firestorm and backlash that ensued following this tasteless and malicious depiction of Ted Cruz’s daughters, the WAPO removed the cartoon.

This is the same liberal media that will attack Donald Trump for going too far and yet they think its fine to say children are fair game. REALLY?

Sen. Ted Cruz launched an “emergency” appeal seeking to raise $1 million in 24 hours in response to a Washington Post online editorial cartoon depicting his two young daughters as dancing monkeys.

The Republican presidential candidate also criticized the paper for its “tasteless attack” on his children.

“My daughters are not FAIR GAME,” he wrote in a fundraising email sent late Tuesday. “I’m sickened … I knew I’d be facing attacks from day one of my campaign, but I never expected anything like this.”

Cruz accused the “liberal media” of attempting to “attack and destroy me (and my family) by any means necessary.”

UPDATE I: From the WAPO … Sorry you bastards, way too late on the retraction.

The WAPO removed the tasteless cartoon with a lame apology.

Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: 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.

 UPDATE II: This is a new low even for the dirt-bag MSM …

Just curious, is everyone away that the daughters of Ted Cruz are age 5 and 7? I think the media should be asking Hillary Clinton if she thinks this is ok.

Also, i want you to imagine, just imagine if the media had ever done this to Barack Obama’s daughters and what the fire storm would be? People would have lost their jobs.

      The children are fair game for WAPO and other liberal media because their parents are conservatives. If they were part of the liberal plantation, the children would be protected.

      Cruz’s own ad was ridiculous and he should not have had his daughters reading political material they are too young to understand. I feel the same way about any parent who puts a political t shirt on their child- liberal or conservative.
      SM: So then Sasha and Malia should have been political targets when they appeared in political ads for Obama? Please.

      Read my lips .. CHILDREN ARE OFF LIMITS!!!

      Only a scumbag would attack a child.

      Sarah Palin’s whole family was attacked by the obama thug administration and she held up like a true champion while obama whined that his family was off limits. The democrat klantation was and has been protected by the biased media from day one. If Trump get elected i expect this to change dramatically.
