This evening:

Ted Cruz @tedcruz
Government propaganda…for your 5 year old!

Big Bird @BigBird
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.

Ms. @EricaRHill even said I’ve been getting vaccines since I was a little bird. I had no idea!

You’re losing big time if you’re trying to take on a giant yellow bird via social media.

There is much hilarity in the responses:

This totally worked for Mitt Romney in 2012 so, please, keep going.

BigBird’s been getting vaccinated since 1972, but you’re just now squalling about it.
You might learn quicker if you had been watching regularly. [….]

He’s gonna be so upset when he learns that there’s a vampire who counts.

Cancun Cruz yells at 6 year old yellow bird…didn’t have that on my bingo card.

Big Bird has supported public health since the 1970’s, bird brain. [….]

Today’s tweet is brought you by the letters F and U. [….]

Big Bird didn’t fly down to Cancun during a blizzard, he stayed and helped his friends on Sesame Street

It must be hard to constantly find things to feign outrage over.

It’s not easy being Ted.

I don’t think 5 year olds have Twitter accounts, Ted.

Welp, you can’t tell us how to get to Sesame Street, but you sure you can tell us how to get to Cancun.

What’s Big Bird’s official position in the government?

Right, because everyone knows five-year-olds make their own decisions when it comes to inoculations.

Right now we are witnessing a sitting U.S. Senator getting mad at a fictional bird

Welcome to America.

Yep. Right up there with programs showing kids how to properly brush their teeth.
