First Lady Dr. Jill Biden had conservatives totally up in arms when she made a trip down to Sesame Street this week to talk about the importance of being kind and courteous to others.
The word of the day was “kindness” and Dr. Biden, along with Gabrielle, Elmo, and Tango, discussed how doing nice things for people makes the world a better place.
Much like that time she delivered freshly baked cookies to troops or bought chocolate for her husband on Valentine’s Day, Dr. Biden pissed off conservatives with her act of generosity. Both she and Sesame Street ignited a firestorm when they shared the clip on their Twitter pages.
Check out some of the responses…
There was a time when all people could watch Sesame Street. It was free on public television. Now only people who can afford cable subscriptions get to watch Sesame Street. What a shame.

Today’s word of the day should be Laptop. As in Hunter Biden’s Laptop.

Was the Word of the Day “inflation”?

Your husband is letting thousands of innocent people and CHILDREN be killed daily. He should have help them on the first day of the attack. He is useless. How is he going to talk at NATO? He thinks Harris is First Lady and sometimes he calls her president. He will start WWIII.

When someone has a “Kindness Matters” sign in their yard, I know they are the meanest, least tolerant person around. 🤷♀️

Kamala should be on there to explain the war in Ukraine.

History will not be kind to her.
She should have never put the nation through this awful time.

Wouldn’t a “small act of kindness” be to allow ALL invited Covid Negative guests to eat, drink, and mingle? https://t.co/Z6RycYFH8w

Let’s face it Jill has put on a kindness mask for 48 years, could you imagine waking up to joe for that long 🤷🏽♂️

Who knew promoting kindness could trigger such vitriol?
