The Brief: Sesame Street's Count von Count became a meme on Nov. 4 after President Trump declared issues with counting the remaining 2020 Presidential Election mail-in ballots.
Count von Count of Sesame Street has emerged as a meme while Americans await the final count of the 2020 Presidential Election. The race is a close one — contingent on the final results from just a few states. In Michigan and Pennsylvania, President Trump and his supporters called for ballots to no longer be counted, even if they were mailed-in beforehand. Political analysts believe this is because many of the mail-in ballots are said to be from members of the Democratic Party, which could lead to a win for Biden.
