Tool of the Week

The Tool of the Week award goes to Mr. Ted Cruz.

Last weekend, Big Bird tweeted: 

“I got the COVID-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it’ll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy,” and Ted Cruz lost his damn mind! 

Ted Cruz responds, “Government propaganda…for your 5 year old!” 

Sorry, Ted. If it’s true then it’s not propaganda. Follow the science! Big Bird and Sesame Street have been helping kids understand things since November 10, 1969 and Big Bird has been there all along. Vaccines are nothing new to Big Bird: 

High profile figures have been involved in campaigns to encourage people to get vaccinated for a long time. Elvis Presley encouraged people to get the polio vaccine in 1956. In 1988, Roald Dahl, author of children’s books, advocated for the measles vaccine because he lost his daughter to measles in 1962.   

Why attack Big Bird? Wouldn’t it make better sense to take your argument to the makers of Sesame Street? The producers or writers, perhaps? Big Bird is a muppet, for crying out loud! When you attack a beloved children’s character, you’d better believe people are going to make fun of your dumb ass. The Late Show hits back with:

You’ve got to read the comments on the You Tube page for this video! Hilarious!

I just have one question: Why does Ted Cruz follow Big Bird on Twitter?
