But the liberal network truly jumped the shark with its latest stunt. The “Clinton News Network” recruited a special celebrity to attack President Trump’s newly-revived travel ban.
On a strange segment shot in front of a black screen (?), Sesame Street’s Elmo joined a panel of whiny liberals to complain that Trump is now able to keep America safe from terrorists. You can see the bizarro segment below:
CNN somehow got Elmo to say that Syrians are no different from him and his puppet pals in Sesame Street.
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.”

This is truly shameful behavior. Using a childhood icon to promote a political position should never happen. Kids aren’t political props. The characters they watch on TV shouldn’t be either.

Elmo may want to rethink some of his political associations before Trump adds Sesame Street to the travel ban!
