Because of Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts, there is a concern that cuts to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting could affect such staples as Sesame Street, and a recent parody video by What’s Trending took aim at that by showing the beloved character of Elmo being laid off.
It’s a hilarious parody, including a line in which Elmo talks about his rent having gone up, but even if the budget cuts do go through, Elmo should be safe for a little while longer, since Sesame Street has a contract with HBO.
But that doesn’t mean kids will be able to watch the beloved show, as the budget cuts could force some PBS stations to shut down. The areas most affected would be rural areas.
