Marge and Homer Simpson reveal their presidential pick in a new Fox Animation video. And it’s not the one you might think from a studio owned by the conservative Murdoch family.
As The Washington Post reported: “Marge tells her husband that she’s conflicted about who to vote for in the upcoming election. Homer helpfully turns on the television and the couple watches a parody of that infamous “3 a.m.” ad that ran during Clinton’s 2008 campaign against then-Sen. Barack Obama.
“In the animated version, Clinton is well prepared to take that early-morning call, but GOP nominee Donald Trump initially rejects it because he is busy tweeting about Elizabeth Warren. Trump answers the phone the second time, but doesn’t bother heading to the Situation Room until he’s undergone an elaborate grooming regimen.”
Among the 5,500 comments on YouTube:
- “Literally the Simpsons is the only thing on Fox which is allowed to make fun of Republicans.”
- “It was kinda funny till the end. but don’t worry fox, we get it. you support Hillary.”
- “Just remember folks. These Hollywood idiots are all playing your fears. Seriously. Trump is doing something right when the Simpsons chime in.”
