Who Did The Simpsons Endorse For President? Well, Not Trump
Whether commenting on lobbyist kickbacks or gun rights, the writing staff of The Simpsons has never shied away from political issues. Less common, though, is getting involved with an in-progress presidential race. That changed tonight. In a new (and rare) standalone short, Homer and Marge try to make their choice by watching how Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would react to the famed “3 a.m. phone call.” Clinton gets off relatively easy, other than a quick jab at the would-be First Gentleman’s extracurricular activities. Trump, though? Not so much. From the tome of Hitler speeches on his bed to the dog on his head (and the photo of his sons’ safari adventure on his wall), the GOP candidate gets the full brunt of the show’s poison pen. It’s times like this you wish Kang and Kodos would throw their hats back in the ring.
