Elmo From ‘Sesame Street’ Learns He's Fired Because Of Donald Trump’s Budget Cuts

By Mark Pygas

President Donald Trump recently unveiled his first proposed budget. If passed, dozens of government organizations, including the Environmental Protection Agency, National Endowment for the Arts, and the Public Broadcasting Service, would see severe cuts in favor of increased military spending. 

Perhaps one thing that nearly all Americans have in common is Sesame Street. The series has been running since 1969, and has been a pivotal part of most childhoods. But as this hilarious parody video from What’s Trending shows, not even Elmo is safe from budget cuts.
