If a Conservative publication published a cartoon depicting Obama’s children as monkeys, the Washington Post would probably be pretty outraged about that. On the other hand, a cartoon depicting Republican Ted Cruz’s children as monkeys… completely okay.
Can I just add something else? That cartoon is incredibly lame. There’s no humor, no irony, no cleverness. Just a hack cartoonist depicting the children of someone she disagrees with as monkeys. Is this what passes for insightful commentary at the Washington Post?
