On his Twitter page on Monday, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee blasted the “despicable, insulting, and anti-Semitic ‘cartoon’” put out by The New York Times, saying in a tweet that it was just a reminder to Americans how the media no longer champion journalism.

“The despicable, insulting, and anti-Semitic ‘cartoon’ in the NY Slimes reminds many Americans how the media no longer champions[sic] journalism,” tweeted Mike Huckabee, “but bigotry against those who don’t live in their bubble.”

Mike Huckabee’s tweet came after The New York Times, in the paper’s international edition, published, according to The Jerusalem Post, an anti-Semitic cartoon. The Jerusalem Post, as referenced in Huckabee’s tweet, detailed the cartoon in their piece, stating, “The offensive image was of a blind US President Donald Trump wearing a yarmulke, being walked by a dog with the face of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wearing a Star of David collar.”

n a tweet on April 27, 2019, The New York Times Opinion posted that an Editor’s Note will “appear in Monday’s international edition.” The note, according to the tweet, will read as follows:

“A political cartoon in the international print edition of The New York Times on Thursday included anti-Semitic tropes, depicting the prime minister of Israel as a guide dog with a Star of David collar leading the president of the United States, shown wearing a skullcap. The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it. It was provided by The New York Times News Service and Syndicate, which has since deleted it.”
