In one of the most blatant propaganda segments in recent months, CNN reporter Clarissa Ward joined Sherry Westin from Sesame Workshop and David Miliband from the International Rescue Committee to interview Elmo about the refugee agenda. With carefully worded questions meant to exploit children’s innocence about the matter, the panel asked Elmo about Syrian refugee children and how they compare to American children.
“Did you find that the Syrian little girls and little boys were a lot like your friends here in America,” CNN’s Ward inquired of Elmo. “Yeah, they really were,” he said. “It was very interesting because they like to play and learn just like Elmo and all of his friends at Sesame Street,” he added, in classic third-person referencing himself.
