‘SNL’ mocks Ted Cruz’s ‘propaganda’ response to Big Bird’s vaccination

“Saturday Night Live” roasted Sen. Ted Cruz in its cold opening Saturday, poking fun at the Texas Republican’s social media beef with Big Bird over the Sesame Street character’s COVID-19 shot.

Aidy Bryant reprised her portrayal of the senator, who has opened a gated community called “Cruz Street” — “where kids are safe from the woke government.”

“When Big Bird said he got vaccinated against this deadly disease, I said ‘Heck No,’” Bryant said, “and I created my own Sesame Street called Cruz Street.”

“As you know, I was mocked for attacking Big Bird on Twitter, simply because I am a human senator and he is an eight-foot-tall fictional bird,” she remarked.

The skit comes a week after Big Bird’s official Twitter account
