Our main characters on Twitter yesterday were Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Rosita the “Sesame Street” Muppet.

HAVING A BAD ONE
ROSITA: Jeers greeted the Daily Mail’s report that references to the Latina children’s TV character were entirely scrubbed from Sesame Place, a Philadelphia theme park, after a black family claimed in a $25 million racial discrimination lawsuit that an actor costumed as Rosita ignored their children in a viral video.
