Ted Cruz was outraged by a political cartoon depicting his children as trained monkeys, saying his children should be “off limits.” Other candidates have agreed, calling the “liberal” media’s use of any candidate’s children as disgusting. Cruz, however, started the whole thing by using his own children to mock and degrade Hillary Clinton. The Cruz ad depicts his young daughters nestled on the couch between their parents. The girls read from a book entitled “The Grinch Who Lost Her Emails” with a great deal of animation and dramatic flair.
You can bet that this new version of the classic was neither conceived nor written by these children and was practiced to a polished perfection. Cruz broke his own rule and opened the door by publicly using his own daughters in a mean-spirited way for political gain. Why isn’t that “disgusting?” How was Cruz protecting his children when using them to publicly besmirch another candidate?
