(TWITCHY) “Kevin Clash is was and will continue to be brilliant, end of story,” says actor Henry Winkler. Sickening. As Twitchy reported, Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo, resigned yesterday in the wake of a second accusation that he had sexually abused a minor boy. Sesame Street grossly called it “a distraction.” And Henry Winkler ups the appalling by defending Clash, no matter what.

Clash, obviously, has not been convicted yet … nor has he been cleared. That makes no difference to Henry Winkler, and his morally bankrupt fellow travelers, who say he’s brilliant forever, end of story. Cased. Closed.
