Maybe it’s time Mini-Mayor Doomberg concentrated on quality-of-life issues instead of meddling with people’s Second Amendment rights and their choice of beverage. He can start with clearing the streets of these lowlifes dressed as Sesame Street characters shaking down people.

A man who dresses as Cookie Monster in Times Square was hauled into court yesterday to face charges for allegedly pushing a 2-year-old boy to the ground and cursing him and his Bollywood-actress mom in a tip dispute.

Osvaldo Quiroz-Lopez, 33 — wearing a Cookie Monster-blue sweatshirt with white letters that said, “Like What You See?” — was arraigned and held in lieu of $1,000 bail on charges of reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

On Sunday, he screamed at Parmita Katkar, an actress from India and former beauty queen, “Give me money! Give me money! I get $2 for a photo,’’ after he posed for photos with her son, the criminal complaint alleges.

When Katkar told him she didn’t have any cash on her, she “heard the defendant state in substance to her, ‘You are a bitch, your son is a bastard, and your stuff is trash.’

“She then observed the defendant place his hands on her son and push him, causing her son to lose his balance and nearly fall to the ground,’’ the Manhattan court complaint said.

Katkar yesterday said her son Samay is still traumatized.

“All he keeps saying is, ‘I don’t like the Cookie Monster, I don’t like the Cookie Monster,’ ” she told The Post.

Police say Times Square’s costumed characters have become a scourge.

“Complaints have been rising against these characters over the past year,’’ one source said. “They’ve always been a problem, [but] now, they’re becoming a real pain in the butt. These people are scam artists.”

But as long as they’re not consuming a 20-ounce beverage, the Gracie Mansion dictator could care less.
