The Washington Post is taking tons of criticism this morning for a since-removed political cartoon (above) that portrayed Ted Cruz's young daughters as trained monkeys.

The cartoon by Ann Telnaes was meant as a response to a Cruz ad in which he read political stories to 7-year-old Caroline and 4-year-old Catherine.

Telnaes wrote on Twitter: "Ted Cruz has put his children in a political ad- don't start screaming when editorial cartoonists draw them as well."

The cartoon has since been replaced online by a note from editor Fred Hiatt.

"It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it," Hiatt wrote. "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."

Cruz responded on Twitter Tuesday night.

Cruz's rivals have come out forcefully against the cartoon, including Jeb Bush in an interview on "Fox and Friends" this morning. 

Bush said Cruz is "absolutely right to be outraged" and that candidates' families should be "off-limits."
