Senator Ted Cruz of Texas completely hammered the Democrats for pushing vaccination of young children through a television show watched by millions of children.
“Sen. Ted Cruz responded to the Left’s latest attempts to vaccinate young children, blasting Sesame Street for patronizing parents and making the iconic muppet Elmo ‘aggressively advocate’ for vaccinating young children with the Chinese coronavirus,” reports Breitbart News.
“Elmo got the COVID vaccine today, just like Elmo’s mommy and daddy!” Elmo’s tweet said.
“Elmo’s daddy had a lot of questions, but Elmo’s doctor said the vaccine would help keep Elmo healthy, and all of Elmo’s friends and family too!” the tweet added.
Sesame Street posted a clip of the conversation between Elmo and his father. Elmo’s father explains that he, too, was skeptical about allowing Elmo to get the vaccine.
“I had a lot of questions about Elmo getting the COVID vaccine. Was it safe? Was it the right decision? I talked to our pediatrician so I could make the right choice,” Elmo’s father said. “I learned that Elmo getting vaccinated is the best way to keep himself, our friends, neighbors, and everyone else healthy and enjoying the things they love.”
“It’s ok to have questions about COVID vaccines for your kids,” a voice says, encouraging parents to speak to their pediatrician.
That’s when Cruz jumped into the conversation about Elmo and his vaccination.
Thanks, @sesamestreet for saying parents are allowed to have questions!
You then have @elmo aggressively advocate for vaccinating children UNDER 5.
