The Simpsons Hilariously Mocks President Donald Trump’s First 100 Days With Sean Spicer

The Simpsons celebrated President Donald Trump’s big accomplishments from his first 100 days in office in a hilarious and depressing new short. From Ivanka Trump to Sean Spicer, the Fox comedy’s upcoming episode will cover all the key elements of the president’s first 100 days in office.
The clip opens with scenes of West Wing chaos as Sean Spicer dangles from a rope in the Briefing Room. Kellyanne Conway walks in and declares, “I am not replacing him.” Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon strangle each other. Meanwhile, Trump lays in bed and scrolls through his phone, as the tiny dog disguised as his hairpiece resettles on his head. When an aide brings him a bill designed to lower taxes just for Republicans, the President groans, “Can’t Fox News read it and I’ll watch what they say?”
Trump has long been a target for Fox’s long-running animated series, which in a 2000 episode jokingly predicted a Trump presidency and has lampooned the now-president several times since.
Here are some reactions to the Simpsons video about Trump. What did you think of the video? What do you think of Trump’s first 100 days in office? Let us know in the comments section.

One of the few Fox programs critical of Donald Trump? https://t.co/6HdtExiX11

This is REALLY dark, makes an inappropriate joke about suicide, and includes the tagline “paid for by ANYBODY ELSE 2020”. https://t.co/P3fUzgBglj

Slightly amusing. I am not a Simpson fan. Not sure how I watched that as a kid. https://t.co/0TxwAQRiWQ

This long-running animated comedy focuses on the eponymous family in the town of Springfield in an unnamed U.S. state. The head of the Simpson family, Homer, is not a typical family man. A nuclear-plant employee, he does his best to lead his family but often finds that they are leading him. The family includes loving, blue-haired matriarch Marge, troublemaking son Bart, overachieving daughter Lisa and baby Maggie. Other Springfield residents include the family’s religious neighbor, Ned Flanders, family physician Dr. Hibbert, Moe the bartender and police chief Clancy Wiggum.
