Using Elmo to guilt people out of tax dollars … keep it classy, Lefties.

Sorry muppet, ain’t nobody buying it:
1) He's being paid by HBO…
2) …and by countless millions of dollars of toy licensing.
3) Nice try.

Sesame Street is on HBO. Elmo isn’t employed by the federal government. https://t.co/cl9VWkJaBX

@Mediaite oh, is HBO laying him off?? 🤔

Elmo and the Sesame Street brand make millions of dollars every year, so really this rationale (while surely it cracked a Lefty or two up) is stupid. Forget that it would be HBO firing him, not President Grump.
Silly Lefties, they just don’t understand how most things work.
Also, Elmo is a muppet. https://t.co/CqvJYWSh2C

Wait, we probably don’t want to give the Left any hashtag ideas.

He does look a little like Sam the Eagle:
@Mediaite 1) He's on HBO 2) Sesame Street has been wildly profitable, why would taxpayer $ be needed?

Elmo makes way more than the average American whom he just so happens to be begging for money.
How very typical.
