President Donald Trump demanded today that Sesame Street retract and apologize for repeatedly making 14 the “Number of the Day.”
The move comes on the heels of the Trump campaign demanding that CNN retract and apologize for a poll showing Democrat Joe Biden leading Trump by 14 points.
The Trump campaign sent a formal letter to CNN claiming that the poll in question is “a stunt and a phony poll to cause voter suppression, stifle momentum and enthusiasm for the President, and present a false view generally of the actual support across America for the President” and demanded that CNN publish a “full, fair, and conspicuous retraction, apology, and clarification to correct its misleading conclusions.”
The campaign also alleges that Joe Biden has been colluding with Sesame Street for years, noting that Biden and his wife Jill were honored at the 2010 Sesame Workshop Benefit Gala and that Jill Biden and Michelle Obama met with Sesame Street operatives Elmo, a “gay activist,” and Rosita, an “illegal immigrant advocate,” in 2011.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh MacEnany insisted that both CNN and Sesame Street are “far left media outlets hostile to the president” and that Count von Count, who stars in the “Number of the Day” skits, is “worse than Wolf Blitzer, and almost as scary-looking.”
