'The Simpsons' Lampoon Donald Trump in Campaign Ad

With November’s presidential election nearing, The Simpsons shared a campaign ad asking, “Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?” 

The Simpsons are known for their political satire. In February, the producers shared an animated clip that mocked the candidates in the 2016 presidential primaries. This new ad opens with Homer and Marge Simpson in bed, when Marge says, “I can’t. I can’t. I can’t make love until I’ve decided who to vote for.” “Yep, it’s the American way,” Homer replies.

The “3 a.m.” campaign is not entirely a pro-Clinton ad, but it’s very critical of Trump. The Trump caricature answers a phone call from the “Situation Room” only to say, “Put my name on the Lincoln Memorial, make Chris Christie eat a worm just for laughs, disband NATO and make me some scrambled eggs on a gold plate.” 

The ad ends with pillow talk between Marge and Homer about who they are going to vote for. “Trump, right?” Homer asks. Marge angrily retorts, “If that’s your vote, I question whether I can ever be with you again.”
