No, Liberal Media, the Right wouldn’t Draw Obama’s Kids in a Tasteless Political Cartoon

After the Ted Cruz-and-his-children political cartoon uproar [2], where Ted Cruz was portrayed as an organ grinder and his kids were portrayed the dancing monkeys by Washington Post cartoonist Anne Telnaes [3], some on the Left may have thought the Right would do the same for Obama and his children, girls Malia and Sasha.

But, a quick Google search [4] revealed that in many of the Obama political cartoons, only four┬áhave included his daughters. The girls were not depicted in a disparaging or demeaning manner. In fact,┬ánone of the four had any comparison of Obama’s daughters to animals.

The Right isn’t one to use children as political fodder, so take notes, the Left and Liberal Media.
