Donald Trump First 100 Days Gets Spoofed By ‘The Simpsons’
“The Simpsons” take Donald Trump head on in Season 28.
There is a lot of controversy surrounding President Donald Trump and his actions in office. But with his recent first 100 days being the next target of scrutiny, it’s not just news outlets taking aim. Now with season 28 of “The Simpsons” underway, the trailer for their more recent episode targets the President’s first 100 days in usual humorous fashion. And it’s not just Donald Trump that is targeted in this trailer, so is his staff. Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, and Steve Bannon are also victims of “The Simpsons” parody.
This isn’t the first time that “The Simpsons” have targeted Donald Trump since the election. In season 27 they covered the Simpsons’ reaction to the election using a few of the jokes that we see in this more recent trailer. In the episode titled “3 a.m.” they did their own sort of impromptu campaign ad predicting what it would be like to have Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton as President of the United States. Surprisingly they predicted things accurately regarding Twitter and the lackadaisical attitude of Donald Trump…in an exaggerated fashion.
“The Simpsons” will probably continue to parody Donald Trump throughout their show as the current POTUS is always a relevant subject matter. What has had many talking about “The Simpsons” is their history with the President. Major news outlets have reported how the show has inadvertently predicted the 2016 election results through past episodes citing the famous escalator scene as one of the most significant predictions.
While this Donald Trump parody is sure to grab people’s attention, I’m sure that it will not be the last jab from “The Simpsons.” I would say it is safe to say that we can expect much of the same through 2020…hopefully not longer (*wink*).
