First Lady Dr. Jill Biden made a visit to Sesame Street this week and conservatives pleased.
The word of the day was "kindness." Dr. Biden helped the Sesame Street cast learn about being respectful of others and doing nice things.
She reminded the Sesame Street characters to be kind to "people, animals and the environment" and even stressed "it's important to be kind to monsters."
Sesame Street regulars Gabrielle and Elmo joined her in watering some plants and playing fetch with a dog. Elmo gifted Dr. Biden a hand-drawn picture.
All, said Dr. Biden, were examples of kindness.
Check the video out below.
Both Dr. Biden and Sesame Street posted the prerecorded video on Twitter.
The video is short and wholesome, but some responses online to are a little less than kind.
Reactions to the video were generally positive...
Wonderful to see a kind, smart, caring woman in the Whitehouse, finally.— jill Reynolds-Johann (@jill Reynolds-Johann) 1647900796
Some folks on the left replied with how some policy items would be a kindness.
Student Debt forgiveness was a kindness that your husband campaigned on. So was free community college for everyone. Do you know how kind that would have been. He would have been forever cemented as one of the best ever.— John Smithanwhiskers (@John Smithanwhiskers) 1647904788
Conservatives on the other hand took Dr. Biden's video as an opportunity to spread some unkindness.
Many were not thrilled about Dr. Biden's choice to visit Sesame Street.

History will not be kind to her. \n\nShe should have never put the nation through this awful time.— Pearl Stones (@Pearl Stones) 1647929144
This person thought teaching kids about kindness is "indoctrinating" them with a liberal agenda.
Are they stating conservatives are inherently unkind?
Used to like Sesame Street until they started indoctrinating our young children into believing what liberals want them to believe!— MamaSox (@MamaSox) 1647950496
Some folks thought it was a good moment to try to dunk on President Biden.

Others used it as an opportunity to spread some conspiracy theories and misinformation.

Dr. Biden and Sesame Street probably didn't expect kindness to be such a controversial topic.
