Ted Cruz drew online attention after he shot a barb at a classic Sesame Street character for getting vaccinated.
Sesame Street icon Big Bird wrote Saturday on Twitter, “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.”
However, the tweet drew a lot of attention from conservative commentators, most notably Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
“Government propaganda…for your 5-year-old!” The senator tweeted in response.
