Buh Bye Big Bird

President Trump announced that his budget for the fed’s 2017-18 fiscal year will not contain funding for several iconic liberal programs.

These programs include Public Broadcasting System (PBS), National Public Radio (NPR) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), as well as the Smithsonian and the National Galleries.

President Donald Trump made good on a long-time conservative goal in his first proposed budget Thursday morning, targeting the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities for complete elimination.

Trump’s budget would zero out the $445 million budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a substantial source of funding for programming and broadcast operations on public TV stations and NPR radio stations nationwide, per the Washington Post.

[...]Additional cuts would affect two tourist mainstays in Washington, D.C., the Smithsonian Institution and the National Gallery of Art.

I’d prefer funding for the Smithsonian and the National Galleries to continue.

Big Bird, Kermit and Cookie Monster can go find jobs and I’d love to have me some Miss Piggy bacon. Elmo hopefully will choose the path of honor and throw himself under a bus; otherwise, I’d love to tickle him with a chainsaw.
