Biden Campaign Brings Out Elmo During Philly Event

The Biden campaign, during an event, invited an unsuspected guest to their event: Elmo.

In a video that is going viral on X, the Sesame Street character Elmo was seen on the stage dancing with a Biden hired by the Biden campaign.

The Biden campaign is in Philadelphia in an attempt to appeal to black voters in the city of brotherly love.

Per NBC Philadelphia:

During their visit to Philadelphia on Wednesday, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris launched a campaign that aims to invest in Black student organizations, community groups and faith centers across the country.

“Today, Team Biden-Harris is launching Black Voters for Biden Harris, a national organizing program to bolster our continued historic investments in outreach to the backbone of the Biden-Harris coalition – Black voters,” a spokesperson for Biden wrote. “These voters were instrumental in electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in 2020, paving the way for the Biden-Harris Administration to deliver a record low Black unemployment rate, Black wealth increased by 60%, more Black Americans with health care coverage than ever before, and billions forgiven in student loan debt that disproportionately impacts Black borrowers. Now, these same voters will be critical to defeating Trump’s racist and toxic agenda at the ballot box – again.”

President Biden and Vice President Harris launched the campaign during a rally that began at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, at Girard College, an independent college preparatory five-day boarding school on 2101 South College Avenue in Philadelphia. Black leaders from across the country — including Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle Parker and Pennsylvania Lt, Gov. Austin Davis — attended the event, along with local supporters, volunteers and Philadelphia-area influencers.


Previously, Biden tweeted about Elmo.


President Joe Biden quoted Sesame Street’s theme song Tuesday to motivate people whose emotional well-being is struggling.

“I know how hard it is some days to sweep the clouds away and get to sunnier days,” Biden posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “Our friend Elmo is right: We have to be there for each other, offer our help to a neighbor in need and, above all else, ask for help when we need it. Even though it’s hard, you’re never alone.”

The president was replying to a post from Elmo, whose account is “run with the help of Elmo’s mommy and daddy.” The post stated the Muppet is “glad” he asked how X users are feeling this week.

“Elmo learned that it is important to ask a friend how they are doing,” he wrote. “Elmo will check in again soon, friends! Elmo loves you.”
