Senator Ted Cruz’s war on Sesame Street resumed Tuesday after the Texas Republican saw that the fictional doll Elmo had been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Thanks, @sesamestreet for saying that it allows parents to ask questions! Next, you have elmo aggressively advocating the vaccination of children under five,” Cruz tweeted. “But you cite any scientific evidence for this.”
Elmo, who has been a Sesame Street character for decades, is only 3 years old.
The Sesame Street Twitter account posted a video earlier Tuesday that encouraged parents to speak to pediatricians if they have concerns about vaccinating young children, as that footage became available earlier this month.
Senator Ted Cruz’s war on Sesame Street resumed Tuesday after the Texas Republican saw the fictional doll Elmo had been vaccinated against COVID-19.
Senator Ted Cruz and other Republican lawmakers have questioned the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to approve COVID-19 vaccines for children under five, noting that they are at little risk of severe COVID illness.
In November, Texas Republicans took issue with Sesame Street’s promotion of COVID-19 vaccines. “Government propaganda… for your 5-year-old!” After Big Bird volunteered, he wrote that he had been vaccinated
The video uses Elmo and his father, Louie, discussing Louie’s decision to vaccinate his son.
It’s OK to have questions about COVID-19 vaccines for kids! Elmo Lowe’s father spoke to his pediatrician, and he knew that receiving a vaccine was the best way to keep him safe and the health of his entire neighborhood! Tweet said.
Cruz referred people to his website and a letter he and other Republican lawmakers wrote in early June questioning Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Robert Califf and members of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee about the need for COVID vaccines for those under five. Approved under an emergency use license.
Among the questions GOP lawmakers wanted answered was, “How will the FDA evaluate potential trade-offs for serious vaccine infections versus dangerous COVID outcomes?”
Cruz’s tweet on Tuesday comes after he said in November that Sesame Street is spreading “Government propaganda… for your 5-year-old!”
The crime then was a tweet sent by Big Bird, which revealed that he had been vaccinated.
You got your COVID-19 vaccine today! “My wing feels a little sore, but it will give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy,” Big Bird said, adding that he had been told he had been vaccinated against diseases since I was a little bird.
‘I have no idea!’ Big Bird volunteered.
Soon Senator Ted Cruz’s dropping of Big Bird was a Saturday Night Live parody with Eddie Bryant (right) playing the Texas Republican and Pete Davidson (left) while Joe Rogan stops as Cruise Street to bring “horse medicine” to the Big Baird and zinc to treat COVID-19
It was Cruz’s attempt to take down Big Bird sneer quickly Saturday Night Live.
“I’m the Texas Senator and the last person invited to Thanksgiving is Ted Cruz,” said cast member Eddie Bryant. “For 50 years I have stood idly by while Sesame Street has taught our children dangerous ideas like numbers and kindness, but when Big Bird asked children to be vaccinated against a deadly disease, I said enough.”
Bryant Cruz created ‘Cruz Street’.
“It’s a gated community, where children are safe from the awakened government,” said the SNL member. “Get an eagle and a gun!” She added while singing with the Cruz Street kids’ band.
Later in the sitcom, Pete Davidson appeared as controversial podcast host Joe Rogan selling “horse medicine” and zinc to a Big Bird complaining about vaccine side effects.
