“Dad, by all that’s decent how could you forget all that’s happened in the last four years?!”
That’s what Lisa Simpson asks her father, Homer, in a new promo that’s been released for The Simpsons‘ next ‘Treehouse of Horror’ episode. Going all-in politically, the teaser finds Homer at a polling booth, wondering who it is he should vote for.
“Can I write in Judge Judy?” Homer asks aloud. Lisa interjects, reminding him of the four years that have been under the Trump administration. Cue a scrolling list of Trump moves, from pulling the U.S. out of the Climate Agreement, to “calling White Supremacists ‘fine people,'” to “imitating a disabled reporter.”
It’s not clear who exactly Homer votes for, although it’s safe to assume Trump wasn’t his choice. “Pfft, who you gonna make fun of now late-night comics?” Homer laughs.
