An incendiary political cartoon in Wednesday's Boston Herald depicting a White House intruder asking President Obama if he has tried the new watermelon toothpaste is drawing fire for employing an offensive racial stereotype. The cartoon appears to reference an incident last week, when an Army veteran named Omar Gonzalez allegedly scaled the White House fence, overpowered a Secret Service agent to get into the White House, and made it all the way to the East Room before an off-duty guard tackled him. Reps from the Boston Herald could not be reached for comment and the cartoon is still currently live on the newspapers website.
