Sesame Street’s New Character Mushroom Cloud the former Nuclear Warhead

Meet Mushroom Cloud a former nuclear warhead that just wants to be your friend. 

In an attempt to help the Corporation for Public Broadcasting keep its federal funding, Sesame Street has created a new character that teaches young boys and girls the importance of increasing military spending.

By creating Mushroom Cloud, Sesame Street is hoping that the Trump administration will reconsider eliminating funding for public broadcasting since the show will now be helping promote part of the administration’s budget plans.
