Fake Elmo is sad to learn he’s out of a job because of Trump’s budget cuts.
Controversy has surrounded Donald Trump’s proposed budget, which includes cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which funds both PBS and NPR.
As expected, Elmo is caught completely off-guard, citing his 32 years in the biz. He has rent to pay and insurance he desperately needs. After getting the axe, the person doing the firing suggests applying for government healthcare while he still can because, ya know, that’s being cut too.
