CNN has hit a new low by deciding to use popular Sesame Street television puppet Elmo as a propaganda tool against President Trump’s temporary travel ban.
Here is the script from CNN, which directly attacks President Trump and his policies:
Popular “Sesame Street” character Elmo sympathized with refugee kids in an interview Monday with CNN, remarking that they are just like kids in America.
Elmo was part of a panel including CNN reporter Clarissa Ward, Sherrie Westin from Sesame Workshop, and David Miliband from the International Rescue Committee.
“Did you find that the Syrian little girls and little boys were a lot like your friends here in America?” Ward asked Elmo.
“Yeah, they really were,” said the “Sesame Street” character. “It was very interesting because they like to play and learn just like Elmo and all of his friends at Sesame Street.”
Miliband also addressed the US Supreme Court’s decision to uphold parts of Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban and the President’s stance on refugees.
“It’s worth saying, perhaps especially today, that this country, the US, receives very few refugees and there’s a lot of fear and loathing being put out.”
CNN, nor Elmo, informed public viewers during the video that Trump’s temporary ban is meant to improve vetting procedures for refugees coming from countries designated by the Obama administration as especially risky when it comes to seeding refugees with terrorists.
