“What’s Trending” has taken it upon themselves to “save PBS.”
The media site’s released a parody video, satirizing what will happen to everybody’s favourite monster following Donald Trump’s latest budget proposal. And the muppet’s not tickled about the President’s plans.
In the video, Elmo ponders how he will pay his rent and what will happen to his healthcare after being laid off by PBS.
“Elmo, it does me no great joy to inform you that due to recent cuts in government funding at PBS, you [are] no longer employed by ‘Sesame Street Workshop’,” a voice off camera says.
Continuing on, the voice adds “The Trump administration is cutting ALL arts and education funding from the new congressional budget.”
The video follows on the heels of Jimmy Kimmel’s spoof showing President Trump “cleaning house at PBS.” Watch below.
