Mitt Romney has resumed his malicious campaign against Big Bird, forcing the fabulously feathered Sesame Street favourite to take up residence in the White House protected by the Secret Service.

None of that is true.

Big Bird was at the White House to promote Michelle Obama's Let's Move healthy eating and exercise campaign.

Despite the name, Big Bird is an excellent role model for healthy eating having kept a consistent weight for nearly 5 decades

Big Bird became a big feature of the 2012 presidential elections when Romney threatened to cut funding for PBS, the television network that runs Sesame Street.

Barack Obama's campaign were quick to mock him running a spoof campaign commercial portraying Big Bird as a "big, yellow menace to our economy".
