The Simpsons Skewer the Debates With Zany Glee


In a standalone clip, The Simpsons takes aim at the Kafkaesque absurdity of this year's presidential election and the coterie of characters who vie for the most powerful position in the Western Hemisphere. Marge has an awful dream in which the presidential hopefuls gather and join hands in song and dance, though their friendly reverie is, of course, a ruse. Rubio is a robot spitting our generic rhetoric, Trump is a monster with slimy tendrils for hair, and Hillary uses her very expensive pearl necklace to choke Bernie to death. When Marge awakes, Homer wisely says, "I'm sorry, honey. I guess dreaming doesn't work."
