After the Washington Post published a political cartoon featuring Ted Cruz and his daughters Caroline, 7, and Catherine, 4, Hillary, the organ grinder, took her “dancing monkey” family for a walk in the Big Apple.
Hillary pounded the pavement with Bill; pro-choice daughter Chelsea, toting a female zygote who, thus far, has successfully survived the first trimester; and cherubic granddaughter Charlotte, who also outlasted the womb and is now a little over a year old.
In addition to the obvious stars of the show, the group dragged along hedge fund/investment banker son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky.
Trying desperately not to call attention to herself, Hillary, while holding onto the baby stroller like a walker, promenaded about, wearing a brightly colored Kashmir Company embroidered jacket she bought in Afghanistan in 2003. The colors on the jacket were so intricate that it actually stirred up images of the carpet fibers found on Clinton friend and associate Vince Foster’s corpse when his body was found dumped in Fort Marcy Park.
Referred to in the press as a “festive walk,” in addition to perusing a bookstore and eating ice cream, the ex-president and his presidential-hopeful wife, the former carpetbagger senator from the State of New York, smiled and waved to admirers.
Unlike 8 million sitting ducks who inhabit a city notorious for strict gun laws, the woman who called gun rights advocates “terrorists” was safely surrounded on all sides by heavily armed security on hand to protect the organ grinder and her quartet of monkeys from being shot at again by Bosnian snipers.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post published and retracted the holiday-themed caricature drawn by editorial cartoonist and Planned Parenthood Award winner Ann Telnaes. Ann’s Christmas cartoon featured Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), dressed like Santa, as an organ grinder, and his two daughters dressed as dancing monkeys.
Prior to the Washington Post pulling the cartoon, Telnaes justified mocking Ted Cruz’s small daughters in the following way:
But when a politician uses his children as political props, as Ted Cruz recently did in his Christmas parody video in which his eldest daughter read (with her father’s dramatic flourish) a passage of an edited Christmas classic, then I figure they are fair game.
The Cruz ad referenced hot-button issues like failed Obamacare, Lois Lerner, and the IRS scandal, as well as a missing server belonging to a certain grandma prancing around New York with a pretentious smile on her face.
That’s why; the liberal syndicated cartoonist was probably motivated more out of anger about the message in the spot-on parody than by the two little girls reading funny political Christmas stories with their dad.
Anyway, if the subject matter is really what the satirist is looking for, instead of drawing pictures of the children of Hispanic politicians as the dancing monkeys of a Mexican organ grinder, how about a cartoon depicting an ISIS sympathizer/San Bernardino jihadi bride named Tashfeen Malik?
Remember Tashfeen? She’s the K-1 fiancée visa chick who slipped by DHS. Then, prior to her and her husband blowing away 14 people at a Christmas buffet, much like a desperate politician using a granddaughter to impress the Baby Boomer set, Tashfeen hid her radicalism from her neighbors by carrying her six-month-old daughter around.
Then again, maybe the woman who calls herself a “pushy Pulitzer prize winning editorial cartoonist” is only looking to portray the family as props and children that like to mimic Mom and Dad. If that’s the case, then Chelsea, Bill, Marc, little Charlotte, and the “clump of cells” due to be born this summer, if all goes well, are “fair game.”
For starters, Ann should definitely take note of Mrs. Mezvinsky.
This is a lady who is an expert at imitating her mother.
Take, for instance, Chelsea, like Hillary, pretending to see a long lost friend in every gathering. Not only that, but before impersonating Mom’s fake smile, and pointing excitedly to a person in the crowd who doesn’t exist, Chelsea always claps along to the song that Hillary struts around in time to.
Granted, unlike Caroline Cruz’s father, Hillary Clinton does not speak with the “dramatic flourish” that is signature Ted. However, Mrs. Clinton does speak with a delayed didactic tone that Chelsea seems to have picked up on and employed while doing things like getting paid $600,000 a year to work as a fake entry-level “special correspondent” at NBC.
Ann did creatively dress Cruz up in a Santa outfit. So why not do a whole series on the grandma in the Afghani coat of many colors under which, if she wanted to, Hillary could hide her Benghazi incompetence, her squeaky-clean server, and all those missing emails?
Then there’s Bill; he’s the grandpa who, when not on Orgy Island with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, or in Chappaqua with the alleged “Energizer Bunny,” protectively steers his granddaughter’s stroller and pretends to enjoy wandering around Manhattan with the woman to whom he is unfaithful.
Ann could also sketch a caricature of straggler-in-law Marc, who, along with Bill, took his rightful place following behind the world’s most famous female organ grinder who, if she stands by her philosophy, should encourage her daughter to hand over baby Charlotte and her baby sister to be raised by the “village.”
With that in mind, Ann Telnaes should be all over the flimflam Clinton family tour, which made the Cruz Christmas ad seem like cold, hard authenticity.
But if none of those ideas ring true, surely Ann Telnaes can come up with at least one cartoon featuring Hillary grinding the organ, while Bill the organ grinder dances on a leash.
Either way, when the cigar smoke clears, imperious Hillary, wearing sunglasses, wrapped in a multi-colored Mao-collared coat, dragging political props on a stage-managed march through Manhattan provided more subject matter for a political cartoon than two sweet little girls ever could.
