The Simpsons zings the heck out of Donald Trump in new clip
Homer and Marge declare themselves as Democrats in a new episode of The Simpsons offering a fairly harsh critique of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The two minute gag, entitled ‘3 a.m.’, shows Homer and Marge watching a late-night infomercial “paid for by people who are really starting to miss Obama”, which goes on to depict Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s different responses in an emergency.
While Hillary gets off relatively unscathed, shown taking the reigns in her relationship with husband and former POTUS Bill, Trump gets a rather more negative treatment, shown curled up in bed reading a book of speeches by Adolf Hitler, continuing his obsessive Twitter beef with Senator for Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren, and later receiving a lengthy ‘makeover’ which entails a whole lot of orange spray and a primped up pooch.
Other blink-and-you’ll miss them details that cracked us up include a glimpse at Trump’s phone call history, which includes Vladimir Putin and Michelle Obama’s speechwriter, and the framed picture of his big-game hunting sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.
Whether the animated clip is an hilarious sendup or liberal propaganda is up to viewer discretion.
New episodes of The Simpsons air Sundays on FOX in the US.
