The Daily Wire reports today that CNN has used popular Sesame Street puppet Elmo as a propaganda tool against U.S. President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban. Elmo was part of a panel on Monday that included CNN reporter Clarissa Ward, Sherrie Westin from Sesame Workshop, and David Miliband from the International Rescue Committee. During the interview, Elmo sympathized with refugee kids stating they are just like kids in America.
Ward asked Elmo, “Did you find that the Syrian little girls and little boys were a lot like your friends here in America?” Elmo replied, “Yeah, they really were. It was very interesting because they like to play and learn just like Elmo and all of his friends at Sesame Street.”
The interview did not cover why the travel ban was created or explain the dangers associated with letting refugees with little or no vetting into the U.S.
