Washington Post cartoonist Ann Telnaes hasn’t apologized for depicting Ted Cruz’s biracial children as monkeys.
In fact she’s doubled down and criticized Cruz for putting his children who are five and seven in a campaign commercial.
Ted Cruz has put his children in a political ad- don't start screaming when editorial cartoonists draw them as well. https://t.co/7hafBacOiK

The Washington Post up their foreign policy reporter to write something about the petty crime childhood of former House staffer Elizabeth Lauten after she criticized the behavior of Obama’s teenage daughters.
The Washington Post has a credibility problem lately that seems to be accelerating. They’ve rehired mentally ill reporter David Weigel who wished death on his conservative subjects and allowed Wesley Lowery to be the stenographer of the Black Lives Matter movement. Lowery repeatedly printed Shaun King’s lies and has yet to suffer any professional consequences.
Telnaes, for her part, wrote a Facebook missive mocking people concerned for the Cruz children’s welfare. She deleted it sometime yesterday but not before GotNews.com could screenshot it. The purpose here is obvious. The commentariat doesn’t want politicians like Cruz running so they’ll go after his children.
Yesterday the Washington Post listed me as the 5th most hated person on the Internet.
The only problem is that they failed to get basic facts right as I quickly corrected on a Facebook message.
The Washington Post’s professionalism is really lacking.
If Jeff Bezos and the rest of the leadership of the Washington Post won’t hold its writers and cartoonists to a higher standard, its audience will.
So without further ado here’s the contact information for Ann Telnaes. Tell her how you feel about going after 5 and 7-year-olds.
The address is
103 2nd St. NE Apt 1
Washington, DC 20002-7318
This isn’t Telnaes’s first offense. She drew an animation of Netanyahu punching a Palestinian infant in the face repeatedly.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is denouncing an animated cartoon on the Washington Post’s You Tube channel depicting Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu repeatedly pounding a baby in the face. The cartoon, titled “Israel pounds Hamas targets”, was produced by Ann Telnaes, an editorial cartoonist for the Post’s Opinion page.
“It is disgusting that the Washington Post would present an animated cartoon that is so profoundly removed from the truth,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Wiesenthal Center. “Millions of Israeli citizensmen, women, and childrenhave been forced into bomb shelters and saferooms by thousands of missiles and rockets targeted at them by Hamas terrorists, whose open and avowed goal is the destruction of the Jewish state,” he continued.
