‘The Simpsons’ Take on the Presidential Debates in New Online Short

     February 21, 2016


While The Simpsons usually stays out of current affairs, it didn’t want to sit out this debate season entirely, and so they’ve released a short online where Marge can no longer handle the hateful rhetoric among the nominees. It eventually leads to her having an amusing dream, and I won’t spoil any more than that. While The Simpsons may not be the most relevant show on the air (the result of A) being old; B) taking a while for episodes to go from script to finished animation), I’m still glad they put this together, and I hope it’s not the last short they do.

Check out the short below. I’m sure if any political conversation comes up in the comments section, it will be completely polite and respectful of other people’s opinions.
