Republicans Ban Elmo From Attending Conservative Conference

Seriously … They tweeted about puppets.

The reason? The Twitter account for Big Bird recently shared that the character got the COVID-19 vaccine — which ruffled the feathers of some right-wing Republicans, like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who called the fictional character’s vaccination “propaganda.”

Naturally, Twitter users had thoughts about CPAC’s tweets.

But one person seemed to sum up the situation nicely ― and needed only two letters to do it.

In related news, CPAC organizer Matt Schlapp on Thursday shared that he isn’t happy that “Sesame Street” added an Asian-American muppet to its cast, saying the show is “injecting race” and saying the show won’t stop pushing “for woke politics.”
