Washington Post Cartoonist Depicts Cruz Children as Toy Monkeys claiming ‘They Are Fair Game’

Can you imagine what would happen if a national cartoonist created a cartoon of Obama’s daughters as toy monkeys?

Washington Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes created a GIF early Tuesday evening depicting Cruz’s young daughters as toy monkeys being played with and arguing that “they are fair game.”

In attempting to explain her arguably racist GIF, Telnaes argued that because daughters Caroline and Catherine appeared in a humorous Christmas-themed ad, they have decided “to indulge in grown-up activities” and allowed their father to play them “as political props.”

Under other, unspecified circumstances, Telnaes lectured that “[t]here’s an an unspoken rule in editorial cartooning that a politician’s children are off-limits” since “[p]eople don’t get to choose their family members so obviously it’s unfair to ridicule kids for their parent’s behavior while in office or on the campaign trail- besides, they’re children.”

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
