Newsmax host Eric Bolling eagerly jumped aboard the right-wing ragefest over Massive Hen selling vaccines, declaring on Monday that “Sesame Avenue are a bunch of communists” for “hawking the jab to five-year-olds.”

Over the weekend, CNN ran a TV particular on COVID-19 vaccines geared toward youngsters and oldsters, that includes characters from the seminal youngsters’s program Sesame Avenue. With the CDC now recommending youngsters ages 5 to 11 get vaccinated, the particular included consultants just like the U.S. surgeon basic answering questions from children in regards to the security and efficacy of the jab.

On the identical time, Massive Hen—whose character is supposed to be six years outdated, thoughts you—famous that he had gotten the shot, as he had solely just lately turn into eligible. And as soon as the Twitter account representing the long-lasting character (who’s, once more, a fictional speaking chicken performed by an individual inside a big costume) posted that he was vaccinated and that “it will give my physique an additional protecting enhance that retains me and others wholesome,” the right-wing freakout began.

Throughout his afternoon Newsmax present on Monday, Bolling added his title to the rising refrain of right-wing pundits indignant {that a} fictional character is telling children that it’s okay to get vaccinated. (One thing the 8-foot-tall puppet has done for nearly 50 years now.)

Whereas the community isn’t requiring all of its staff to get the shot, it should mandate that any unvaccinated staffers be subjected to weekly COVID-19 testing, in keeping with the Biden administration’s office guidelines.

“Talking of COVID, there was a ton of push again to the Biden mandates over the weekend,” Bolling declared. “Massive Hen is now hawking the jab for five-year-olds on Sesame Avenue!”

Enjoying a clip from the CNN particular, full with over-the-top mockery from Bolling, the Newsmax host then raged in opposition to the pro-vaccine message delivered by the outsized puppet.

“I advised you 15 years in the past that Sesame Avenue are a bunch of communists! And so they’re proving it as soon as once more,” Bolling exclaimed. “Once more, I stand by that evaluation.”

Earlier than he was ousted from Fox Information, Bolling ranted in 2016 that the kids’s present wanted to “transfer away from the left-wing communist diatribe they put out each single day.” 5 years earlier, during a Fox Business segment, he likened the Muppets to “Communist China.”
