funny, but don't give Cruz or Fox any ideas
“Saturday Night Live” got sweet revenge for Big Bird after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz attacked him for getting vaccinated against COVID-19 last week.
In the takedown, Aidy Bryant plays Cruz, who’s so irritated by the vaccination that he creates his own creepy version of “Sesame Street” — “Cruz Street” (on the Newsmax Kids channel). It’s got a rifle, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Cecily Strong) and conspiracy theory podcaster Joe Rogan (played by Pete Davidson).
It even has a song: “Cruz-y days, sweeping the libs away.” “For 50 years I stood by as ‘Sesame Street’ taught our kids dangerous ideas like numbers and kindness,” says “Cruz.” “But when Big Bird told children to get vaccinated against a deadly disease, I said, ‘enough’ and I created my own ‘Sesame Street.’”
It’s a “gated community where kids are safe from the woke government,” he explains.
Strong’s Greene shows up packing an AR-15 and explains that the episode is “brought to you by Q — not the letter, the man.”
