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

"But Elmo's rent just went up!"

Elmo... laid off??? 

A new parody video from What’s Trending shows what could happen if President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts reached “Sesame Street.”

Since the show isn’t directly funded by the corporation and has a contract with HBO, Elmo is probably safe... at least for now. 

But some children may no longer be able to watch the show as the cuts could force some PBS stations to shut down, especially in rural areas.
