This cartoon was drawn by Ann Telnaes and published in the Washington Post.
Here’s her Twitter bio:
Pushy Pulitzer prize winning editorial cartoonist, editorial cartoons for the Washington Post
Now imagine the reaction to her drawing Sasha and Malia Obama in a similar cartoon.
Here’s her explanation:
Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.
From what I can see virtually no one agreed with Telnaes.
Score one for the good guys!
