A Certain Vampire From Sesame Street Trends As Trump Screams 'STOP THE COUNT!'

“STOP THE COUNT!” President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday, demanding — in a frenzied bid to retain his presidency — that ballots be dismissed in battleground states such as Pennsylvania and Michigan, which are still tabulating votes. Trump may be howling about the election, but the more creative denizens of Twitter are interpreting his words as a call to stop a certain monocle-sporting, purple-skinned, oddly friendly vampire who hails from a place named Sesame Street.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 5, 2020 Finally someone had the guts to say it https://t.co/id9vml4QPl pic.twitter.com/b7jQOQbYse— Andy Campbell (@AndyBCampbell) November 5, 2020 Tweets featuring The Count — a Muppet character who debuted on season four of “Sesame Street” in 1972 and bears the impressive full moniker of Count Von Count — went viral faster than one could say, “One vote, two votes, three votes, four!” Don’t stop counting!Don’t stop counting! pic.twitter.com/PSmQolMlij— 🍁 Muppet History 🦃 (@HistoryMuppet) November 4, 2020 You can’t stop the count. pic.twitter.com/lhdeNGmHMh— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) November 5, 2020 We need him on a flight from Sesame Street to Nevada ASAPpic.twitter.com/yENovVRuAL— Chico Bean (@chicoBean) November 5, 2020 I love that Sesame Street is trending because a stressed and angy Trump sat on the toilet and tweeted STOP THE COUNT— Will Black (@WillBlackWriter) November 5, 2020 Great.

Or maybe to the biggest, baddest count of all, Count Dracula? Me, a villager, outside of Dracula’s castle after he has stolen my third wife for his harem https://t.co/Gj2XzNzZ1y— Siobhan Thompson, mysterious European heiress (@vornietom) November 4, 2020 Stop the count? Which count? Count Dracula? The Count from Sesame Street? Count Chocula? If #DumbDonald means the vote count, then he’s conceding. trump has conceded everybody! 🎉 🎈 🥳 pic.twitter.com/76atF33W4J— Scary Larry Says #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica 🌊 🇺🇸🗽 (@StompTheGOP) November 5, 2020 Incredibly, this is not the first instance this week that Count von Count has swooped in for a dramatic election appearance. On Wednesday, after Trump falsely declared victory while millions of votes remained to be counted, at least one demonstrator at a rally in Reading, Pennsylvania, held up a sign proudly bearing Sesame Street’s famous ambassador of numbers. “Easy as … 1 2 3!” the sign read. “Count votes”!
