A friend shared this with me last night, and I felt compelled to include it here.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I LOVE the Muppets.
I consider the “The Muppet Movie” one of the greatest movies of all time, and I do want to see the current iteration. The Muppets are fully ensconced in our pop culture now, and like any celebrity, their images are often used to further political or social ends. Politics is downstream from pop culture, which is something Kermit is clearly aware of in this clip.
