After His Daughters Were Mocked, Ted Cruz Just Fired Back With The PERFECT Cartoon
The controversy started over the weekend, when the Cruz campaign released an advertisement of a comical video segment showing Cruz reading politically themed children’s books to his two young daughters.
The books made fun of Democrats — and Republicans who’ve cooperated with the Obama White House: “How Obamacare Stole Christmas,” “Rudolph the Underemployed Reindeer” and “Frosty: the Speaker of the House” (an implied reference to Paul Ryan’s complicity in passing the massive Omnibus spending bill).
Telnaes is a Pulitzer-prize winning artist who drew a caricature of Cruz as Santa the Organ-Grinder using his two daughters as monkeys to go around soliciting votes and donations. The Washington Post ran the cartoon on Wednesday. The caption under the drawing read, “Cruz uses his children as political props.”
The cartoon got a rise out of Cruz, who put out his own cartoon portraying the Washington Post and The New York Times as lapdogs for Hillary Clinton.
