Presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, is about to open up a can of whoop on the very LIBERAL “Washington Post” for attacking his daughters in a recent cartoon post depicting the girls as monkeys on leashes. You don’t mess with a Father’s little girls…and Cruz in a tweet released to public after the incident…had the LAST WORD.
“Not much ticks me off, but making fun of my girls, that will do it,” Cruz told reporters in Tulsa, Okla. His daughters Caroline and Catherine are 7 and 5, respectively.
“Don’t mess with my kids. Don’t mess with Marco’s kids. Don’t mess with Hillary’s kids. Don’t mess with anybody’s kids. Leave kids alone,” Cruz said.
The Post has since taken down the online animated cartoon, by Pulitzer Prize winner Ann Telnaes, which depicted Cruz holding two dancing monkeys on leashes. The headline was, “Ted Cruz uses his kids as political props.”
The Texas Republican fired off a tweet last night – he composed it on his iPhone, he said – slamming the cartoon.
Classy. @washingtonpost makes fun of my girls. Stick w/ attacking me–Caroline & Catherine are out of your league. https://t.co/N61ys6z8w1

Other candidates came to Cruz’s defense on Twitter.
The @washingtonpost, which is the lobbyist (power) for not imposing taxes on #Amazon, today did a nasty cartoon attacking @tedcruz kids. Bad

Wash Post cartoon featuring @tedcruz’s children is disgusting. The Post saying the kids are “fair game” is even worse.

Cruz said he was reminded of a lesson he learned in kindergarten: “Don’t hit little girls,” he said.
Cruz’s campaign sent a fundraising email Wednesday titled, “They attacked my children!”
“You see, there is something that rises up inside a man when his children are attacked — something fierce and unstoppable,” the email read. “It is this same unstoppable force that makes me more determined than ever to fight for you, your family, and American families everywhere. Can I count on you to stand with me?”
Messing with the kids…what a scumbag move. I stand with Cruz.
