Tickle Me Elmo Gets The Jab

In the left’s latest attempt to indoctrinate your children, “Sesame Street’s” three-year-old little Elmo is given the COVID vaccine during the children’s program.



Below is a rushed transcript from the Todd Starnes Show, which airs nationwide live from noon to 3 p.m. EST:

STARNES: [01:27:54] Now, Grace Baker, Sen. Ted Cruz is very upset with Elmo. [01:27:59][5.0]

BAKER: [01:28:01] I was going to say the border. [01:28:01][0.5]

STARNES: Biden’s Cornbread is not Done in the Middle

STARNES: [01:28:02] The Sesame Street Muppet. So Elmo, is there more than one Elmo? Because The Washington Post describes the puppet this way. “Young puppet Elmo.” [01:28:13][11.8]

BAKER: [01:28:15] I don’t know why they describe it that way. I mean, there’s like a mom and a dad, Elmo, maybe? And that’s why? [01:28:20][5.4]

STARNES: Sorry Girls, You Got Beat By a Transgender Skateboarder

STARNES: [01:28:21] Okay. Oh, well, it is. I didn’t realize. Yes. Little Elmo has a father muppet called Louie, and so Elmo is three and a half years old in the Sesame Street lore and little Elmo just got his, oh, this is big. Little Elmo just got his China virus vaccine. So anyway, now Ted Cruz is very upset because he says there’s no scientific backing here to say that three-and-a-half-year-old Muppets need to be getting China virus vaccines, Grace Baker. [01:28:59][37.9]

Are children's TV shows going woke?

BAKER: [01:28:59] That’s a fair point. I mean, is there data to support a muppet getting a vaccine? I didn’t know they needed a vaccine. [01:29:04][5.3]

STARNES: [01:29:05] So this is really all about indoctrination and propaganda. Alright, so we’ve got this audio here? [01:29:11][6.9]

BAKER: [01:29:12] Yes, we have the audio. [01:29:12][0.0]

STARNES: [01:29:13] Alright, so this is little Elmo talking to his father, Louie, about getting the China virus vaccine. Let’s listen. [01:29:20][7.2]

STARNES: Thanks to Trump’s Supreme Court, Christians Can Come Out of the Closet

LITTLE ELMO IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:29:22] Look Daddy, super duper bandages, just like Elmo. [01:29:22][0.3]

ELMO’S DAD IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:29:25] You were super duper today – getting your COVID vaccine, Elmo. [01:29:27][2.1]

LITTLE ELMO IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:29:29] Yeah, there was a little pinch but it was okay. Elmo was really glad to have Daddy and baby David there with him. Baby David, where are you? [01:29:37][7.7]

ELMO’S DAD IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:29:39] I had a lot of questions about Elmo getting the COVID vaccine. Was it safe? Was it the right decision? I talked to our pediatrician so I could make the right choice. I learned that Elmo getting vaccinated is the best way to keep himself, our friends, neighbors and everyone else healthy and enjoying the things they love. [01:30:00][20.8]

LITTLE ELMO IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:30:00] Oh, Daddy, Elmo and baby David have a question. Can we have a hug? [01:30:05][4.5]

ELMO’S DAD IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:30:05] Oh, come here, son. [01:30:06][0.7]

LITTLE ELMO IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:30:08] Elmo loves you, Daddy. [01:30:09][0.4]

ELMO’S DAD IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:30:09] I love you too. [01:30:10][0.8]

NARRATOR IN AUDIO CLIP: [01:30:11] It’s okay to have questions about COVID vaccines for your kids. Get the latest facts by speaking to your pediatrician or health care provider. [01:30:18][6.8]

STARNES: [01:30:20] I have a question. I have a question, Grace Baker. [01:30:23][3.0]

Cheney Declares War on MAGA World; Reagan Rolling Over in His Grave

BAKER: [01:30:24] Well, you’re not a parent, but go ahead. You can ask a question. [01:30:26][2.1]

STARNES: [01:30:26] So, I have a question here about this vaccine. [01:30:35][9.0]

STARNES: [01:30:36] Thank you. Did little Elmo sound like that before he got the vaccine? [01:30:42][6.1]

BAKER: [01:30:45] I think so. Sources say yes. [01:30:46][1.5]

STARNES: [01:30:47] That is a frightening voice. I don’t know. That just sounds weird. [01:30:56][8.6]

BAKER: [01:30:57] That’s just Elmo for you. [01:30:58][1.1]

STARNES: [01:30:58] All right. Is that one that goes around tickling people? [01:31:00][2.0]

BAKER: [01:31:00] Yeah. Tickle me Elmo. [01:31:01][0.8]

STARNES: [01:31:02] Okay, yeah. [01:31:03][1.2]

BAKER: [01:31:04] We all knew there was a problem when they came out with a toy called Tickle me Elmo. [01:31:08][3.2]

STARNES: [01:31:08] Yeah, especially in today’s age. [01:31:10][1.7]

BAKER: [01:31:11] It was actually years ago. [01:31:11][0.0]

STARNES: [01:31:12] Oh, was it? Alright, I don’t keep up. [01:31:13][1.2]

BAKER: [01:31:14] That’s where it all started. [01:31:15][0.8]

STARNES: [01:31:16] I see. So, Elmo as a three and a half year old, is now getting the vaccine. [01:31:21][5.0]

BAKER: [01:31:21] Yes. And he’s very glad he did it. [01:31:23][1.9]

STARNES: [01:31:24] Well, it does make you wonder, what happens, Grace Baker, when they unleash the monkey pox. I mean, can you imagine what they’re going to be doing over at Sesame Street when that happens? [01:31:33][9.8]

BAKER: [01:31:34] It’s going to be pandemonium. [01:31:35][0.6]

STARNES: [01:31:35] It’s pandemonium. [01:31:36][0.9]

BAKER: [01:31:38] Yeah. [01:31:38][0.0]

STARNES: [01:31:38] Alright. Well, it’ll be interesting. We’ll see. Okay, so there you go folks, Sesame Street now telling three and a half year olds that you’ve got to get the vaccine and then your voice will never change. [01:31:50][12.0]
