John Oliver questions why Sesame Street characters are more concerned about real dangers of lead than lawmakers and regulatory agencies

On his “Last Week Tonight” show, comedian and social commentator John Oliver questions why — given that so much has been know for so long about the toxicity of lead — Sesame Street characters are more concerned about lead exposure and contamination than most lawmakers and regulatory agencies.
