Last week, Ted Cruz attacked the most cherished of US institutions — Sesame Street’s Big Bird. After the big yellow bird encouraged children to get vaccinated, Cruz tweeted that Sesame Street’s Big Bird receiving the Covid-19 vaccine was “Government propaganda…for your 5-year-old.”

In this timely SNL spoof, Senator Ted Cruz (Aidy Bryant) introduces his new show ‘Cruz Street’ and its residents (Cecily Strong, Kyle Mooney, Pete Davidson, Alex Moffat, Mikey Day, Chris Redd, Chloe Fineman, Aristotle Athari).

Naturally, Big Bird makes an appearance.
