On Monday, CNN ran a story that was meant to criticize President Trump’s refugee policy by using the Sesame Street character, Elmo. In the propaganda piece, Elmo described his “wonderful” a refugee camp in Syria, where he concludes that “refugee kids are just like us.”
“They like to play and learn just like Elmo and all his friends at Sesame Street,” Elmo said during an interview with CNN.. “Elmo thinks it’s important to know that everybody is the same deep down and that’s very important.”
“It was really sad because Elmo’s new friends told Elmo that they had to leave their homes because it wasn’t safe for them to stay,” he continued. “And that made Elmo really sad and sometimes a bit scared.”
See how they use that word, “scared”? They just can’t stop stroking fear in the hearts of their constituents.
