Joe Biden’s Secretary of State Nominee Tony Blinken Once Went on ‘Sesame Street’ to Talk Refugees

President-elect Joe Biden is moving ahead with cabinet picks and just sort of ignoring President Donald Trump’s flailing legal effort to overturn the election results. The New York Times reports that among Biden’s expected moves is the nomination of Tony Blinken to Secretary of State. Blinken is a well-known advocate for global alliances and worked as deputy secretary of state during President Barack Obama’s administration. He’s got a long resume and can include among his many accomplishments a meeting with delegates from Sesame Street. 

Yes, social media posters were quick to remember Blinken’s 2016 visit with Grover, where he explained what the UN building (not the “un-building”) and talked about the importance of accepting refugees. Real talk: whatever your feelings on Blinken, Grover delivers numerous laugh-out-loud funny lines here.
