Celebrities react to Donald Trump’s RNC speech
The long-running animated comedy is currently on hiatus, but it posted a clip to YouTube chiming in on the 2016 presidential election.
The clip features Homer and Marge in bed watching a campaign ad that begins, “It’s 3 a.m. and the phone’s ringing in the White House. Who do you want answering that call?”
First, Bill Clinton is seen picking up the phone and handing it to Hillary. Then, at Trump’s place, the “Apprentice” star is shown ignoring the call to finish a tweet mocking Elizabeth Warren. Beside him in bed is a book of Adolf Hitler’s greatest speeches.
Celebs against Donald Trump
“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,” Trump demands when he finally answers the phone. He then undergoes an hours-long getting ready process — complete with spray-tan and a lapdog toupee — before announcing he’s ready, at which point the crisis has escalated.
The ad’s tagline? “Paid for by Americans Who Are Really Starting to Miss Obama.”
Marge then makes it clear to Homer that voting for Trump won’t fly with her. “And that’s how I became a Democrat,” he says.
