The Washington Post is pulling a controversial cartoon which depicts Senator Ted Cruz dressed like Santa Claus accompanied by his two daughters who are attached to strings and wearing red outfits looking like "trained monkeys".
The cartoon has been heavily criticized. Ted Cruz himself commented on it, writing on Twitter "Classy @washingtonpost makes fun of my girls. Stick w/ attacking me--Caroline & Catherine are out of your league".
Marco Rubio called the cartoon "disgusting". The paper´s editorial page editor said he "failed to look at this cartoon before it was published".
