Ted Cruz Picks Up a Fight With Big Bird Over Vaccine Tweet —It’s Not Going Well



Ted Cruz

On Saturday, GOP Sen. Ted Cruz decided to pick up a fight with Big Bird, attacking the Sesame Street character for tweeting that he got his COVID-19 shot earlier in the day.

Big Bird’s tweet came after the Sesame Street character appeared on CNN Saturday morning during a family town hall dubbed “The ABCs of Covid Vaccines,” where the network’s chief medical correspondent, Sanjay Gupta, and anchor Erica Hill answered questions about the COVID-19 vaccine for kids.

“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,” Big Bird tweeted Saturday morning.

The tweet appeared to have triggered Ted Cruz, who immediately condemned the message as “government propaganda.”

It didn’t take long for his critics to respond, and mockery ensued. See some of the reactions below:
