'Simpsons' Clip Reveals Homer Likes Trump, While Marge Supports Hillary (w/video)
The longest-running series in primetime television is weighing in on who its characters support in the upcoming election. A new clip from The Simpsons titled 3 a.m. finds Homer and Marge getting romantic in bed, but distracted by the question of who'll they'll vote for this November.
They turn on the TV to catch a political ad questioning who they'd want to have answering an emergency phone call at the White House in the middle of the night. The ad shows Bill Clinton confusedly accepting a call summoning him to the Situation Room, before Hillary Clinton reminds her disappointed husband, "from now on, it's always for me."
In the Donald Trump scenario, the would-be president ignores the phone, because he's busy on Twitter. After finally taking the call, a team of assistants is summoned to prepare him with a spray tan, fake, regular-sized hands, and a small dog that he fluffs into his hair.
Homer seems to like Trump, but when Marge questions whether she could be with a Trump supporter, Homer explains, "And that's how I became a Democrat."
The 28th season of The Simpsons is set to premiere on Fox in September. The show might be uniquely qualified to weigh in on the election—an episode from Season 11 predicted a Trump presidency way back in 2000 (video below).
