Sesame Street’s Big Bird has been in the presence of political figures for many years now, including former FLOTUS’s Hillary Clinton (left) and Laura Bush. But it’s current Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney who had some bad news for Big Bird and the rest of the Sesame Street gang last night, threatening to cut taxpayer funding of PBS if he were elected. He did say that he “liked” Big Bird though, as well as debate moderator, and PBS personality, Jim Lehrer.
Our friends at WiLD 94.1 in Tampa imagined how it would have gone down if Mitt had actually paid a visit to Sesame Street to make his announcement. Take a listen.
