The Simpsons Rip Into Donald Trump [VIDEO]

Rolling Stone recaps:

The Simpsons interrupted their summer vacation by posting a two-minute campaign ad that asks Springfield residents whether they would rather have Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in the White House during a national crisis.

While The Simpsons don’t flatly state “I’m With Her,” they’re extremely critical of Clinton’s opponent: Trump is shown in a luxurious bedroom, up late at night tweeting about Elizabeth Warren with a book of Adolf Hitler’s greatest speeches by his side.

  • PickyPecker

    Love the photo on the wall in dRUMPf’s bedroom of his beloved killer sons and a dead leopard. lol

    • Quipster

      I named them Uday and Qusay long before Bill Maher did.

      Apparently narcissistic psychopathy can be genetic.

      • MaryOGrady

        Actually, there is a body of psychological research which says that sociopathy (the newer term for psychopathy) has a heavy genetic component. There also seem to be physiological differences between the brains of sociopaths and non-sociopaths, demonstrated with functional MRI studies.

        • JCF

          (My 2c) I don’t believe sociopathy and psychopathy are the same things. Psychopathy I believe comes w/ hallucinations. Sociopathy is no more hallucinatory than delusions of grandeur! While both lack empathy, in sociopathy, it comes from self-obsession. In psychopathy, delusional fears of the (objectively unreal) Other.

          I pity psychopaths: so often their pathology comes from neurological diseases like schizophrenia. So often, they can’t function in society at all. While sociopaths may have a history of childhood abuse in their backgrounds—THAT, I can pity—their disease usually isn’t so socially dysfunctional (in fact, in capitalist and/or authoritarian systems, they may actually prosper!). Whatever made them BULLIES, they’ve usually been allowed to get away w/ it for years or DECADES before someone calls them on it.

          “sociopathy … has a heavy genetic component”: while that’s certainly possible, I would also think that the “nurture” (i.e., lack of!) would also factor in its continuation: the (sad) cycle of abuse, parent to child, ad nauseum…

    • Joe in PA

      And the book, with “A” Hitler author. Trying to be faux subtle. Love it.

      • GayOldLady

        It is said that his 1st wife, Ivana (yes Ivana, not Ivanka), claimed that he kept Mein Kampf on his nightstand.

        • Joe in PA

          I know! I was reacting to the typical (but perfect() cartoon rendering of a casual (but not so casual) reference. Well done Simpsons.

          • GayOldLady

            Ditto the well done!!!

          • DonnaLee

            If the Simpson’s are against you, you know you’ve done something wrong with your life.

        • Ernest Endevor

          It wasn’t Main Kampf. It was a collection of speeches. I know, You say potato, I say Bergen Belsen.

        • RickCabral

          What did he do with it? Surely he didn’t read it. I doubt the man ever read a book in his life

        • guest

          She DID NOT say that. she said he kept a book of Hitler’s speeches. There is a difference. “Mein Kampf” or “My Life” was the book he wrote in prison and they used as a guide to do what he wanted when he got power. (I guess he could have had that book there, but it was not what she said.)

          And here it is from a right wing site.

          Vanity Fair: Trump Kept a Volume of Hitler’s Speeches By His Bedside
          She said that he admired how Hitler’s speeches could get people to action.

          “However, when Trump was called to the
          carpet and asked about being so enamored with Hitler that Trump kept
          Hitler’s speeches by his beside, Trump dodged the question. According to
          Business Insider, Trump lied and said a Jewish friend gave Trump the book.

            Hitler was (unfortunately) one of the greatest orators of the 20th century, at least if you measure greatness in oratory as the ability to move large numbers of people in the direction you want them to move.

          • guest

            Sad, but true. And at that time period, luckily FDR and Churchill were good too.

            There were some photos found and released about 6 to 8 mo ths ago, or maybe a bit more from the 1920’s with Hitler practicing his speech and body movements that he never wanted to get out. A close look at them and you see the true evil design of his intent to move people.

          • Palmer

            Mein Kampf translates as “My Struggle”, I believe.

          • Mein Drumpf

        • IamM

          No, it really is supposed to be a book of Hitler’s speeches.

      Hah, I thought that was Siegfried & Roy.

          • Joe in PA

            Up vote for ‘schmotz’. πŸ™‚ Being a relative newcomer to PA, the PA dutch version of that is schmutz.

          • David Walker

            Clearly someone should have redd up that schmutz before he got there.

          • Joe in PA

            Clearly. πŸ™‚ Actually when we first heard the word it was describing ‘grease’ or lube if you will. Ahem. But not in a good way. We couldn’t get something to work on our tractor and a local suggested putting some ‘schumutz’ on it. πŸ™‚

            And yes, we’ve been using that word for lube ever since. πŸ™‚

          • David Walker

            Poor Jack never did quite catch on things like “schmutz” or “redd up.” But he came with his Philadelphia/Fishtown linguistics, some of which left me baffled. The thing is, I caught on rather quickly, so I can’t remember any now.

          • Joe in PA

            David! I’ve been meaning to ask how you’ve been. I’ve been thinking about you when I see your frequent up votes. Peace.

          • David Walker

            Doing OK, Joe. We’ve had a couple of “Fill the Dumpster” sessions with some friends. The edict was, “Everything that isn’t on top of the piano or on top of the microwave or…goes.” In spite of that, someone will bring out something and say I should look through it and that sparks some “walk away” moments. At night I could swear I hear him puttering around downstairs or forget and expect him to come home. The cat was not pleased with her new, fairly vacant surroundings, but I think she now realizes there’s more room to romp (when the mood strikes at 2:30am). It’s probably no different than what anyone else goes through. And I don’t wish it on anyone I know.

          • Good Shot Green

            Sounds similar to “schmeg” but not near the same definition.

          • BobSF_94117

            I suspect, if the photo is real (not the manipulation), that the mirror is just old.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        LOL, I always tell her that tea parties are for little girls. I’ve actually pulled out photos of past little girl tea parties. Sadly, she never gets it.

            That is fun! But I doubt that it’s actually a fact.

          • Martin

            It’s a corruption of a Scandinavian word, “svagga.” The word meant, “to rock unsteadily or lurch.” (see also: swagger) It entered English around the 13 century and was first sighted in printed form around the very early 1300s. Eventually the meaning morphed into “loosely hanging, ponderous, or sagging.” and by the late 1700s there came the additional meaning of “treasure or plunder” and “hanging garland”.

        • AtticusP

          Unfortunately, the goobers that support Trump are not going anywhere any time too soon.

          Whether the GOP survives in its present form or not, those people with their grievances – – real or imagined – – are here to stay.

          • JT

            Splinter groups engaging in internecine warfare would be good.

          • marshlc

            Yes, and that’s a real problem. A sizeable percentage of Americans are so mistrustful of their own government, so mistrustful of expertise and experience, so devoid of critical thinking skills, that they seriously back Trump. Those people are citizens of your country, and someone has let them down desperately by allowing them to become this divorced from reality. If this were a physical disease, rather than mental and spiritual malaise, vast resources would be spent to help these people. Not just for the sake of the future of the country, but for the sake of Trump supporters themselves, something has to be done to get reality back into political discourse.

          • AtticusP

            Fox “News” is the prime suspect here.

            Say what you will about Roger Ailes’ moral compass, or the lack thereof.

            With the considerable help of the Murdoch fortune, Ailes was able to assemble a propaganda machine that the Nazis could only have envied.

            And all the while claiming to be “fair and balanced”.

            They have succeeded in creating an alternate reality that an alarming number of poorly educated Americans believe exists.

            The result: Donald Trump is a nominee for the office of President of the United States.

            Seems to me that nothing that ever aired on “The Twilight Zone” is scarier or more outrageous than that.

            Yeah, and that is something that is going to have to be remedied. There has always been, and will always be, a political fringe, but that fringe can’t be half of the country. Sane people are going to have to find a way to reach out, and I have no idea what that would look like.

          I suspect that if he wins, that will be the end of the GOP. If he loses, then perhaps the GOP can have a serious soul searching session, jettison the tea people and the jesus people, and become a sane party.

      Yup. MSM is largely responsible for Trump being where he is now. They basically ran his campaign for him which left him free to use his campaign budget on those stupid hats and paying money into all his crap that has his name on it. I mean really, why does everything he own has to have his name on it. Ivanka can’t even take her husband’s name because she has to have Trump’s brand on her (along with who knows what else Trump has had on her).

      • sfbob

        All well and good of course and kudos to Avik Roy for coming to the conclusions he does here. On the other hand, most of us figured this all out a very long time ago. LBJ in fact figured it out in 1965 when he noted that passage of the civil rights bills of 1964 and 1965 meant that the Democratic Party would lose the South for a very long time (I don’t recall the figure he gave but I believe he greatly underestimated it).

        Further, where Roy ponders the idea of a conservative movement not bound to white supremacy, the problem is that conservatism by its very nature requires both an elite and an underclass. The purpose of the elite is to conserve–in other words to protect the status quo and to permit only such changes as will not substantially change who holds power. So while it may be possible to a non-white-supremacist conservative movement, that movement will still be stuck with needing a group to keep down.

        • AtticusP

          I think LBJ said “We have lost the South for a generation.”

          If a generation is considered to be 25 years, I think he was way off in his estimation.

      All a populist ever needs is an audience of the disenfranchised that is easily duped. In a Capitalist government there will always be an Oligarchy that lives off the workers. Trump is that populist and is part of that oligarchy. The charade was inevitable.

    Morning Consult survey has Clinton up by 3 after being down by 4: http://www.nydailynews.com/new
    “When voters were asked to also consider Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson, it proved beneficial for Clinton, who leads Trump by 5 points in a three-way race.” https://morningconsult.com/201

    Don’t exactly know what to make of Reuters. They did 2 polls with different wording, one had Clinton up +6 where people could choose “other” and the other one has them tied with choices of Johnson and Stein. Just seems like a mess to me.

          I remember that the dentist who killed Cecil used food bait and lured him out of the preserve. Also there are canned hunts where you are basically guaranteed a kill. People should despise it for so many reasons.

          • Good Shot Green

            Hunting for sport is immoral, barbaric. Taking your rifle out to shoot deer or moose? As long as you consume the carcass, fine. But if you just want practice your aim and accuracy, that’s why there’s skeet shooting, archery, darts.

            Savages!

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            I don’t hunt but don’t mind people hunting non-endangered animals for food. But for me, I’ve never liked trophy hunting where you preserve part of the carcass like the head or skin w/o eating the meat. There’s something a bit ghoulish about smiling about having killed a beautiful animal, especially if the kill helped push the species to extinction or endangerment.

          • Good Shot Green

            “Ghoulish” yes, that’s what celebrating death is.

    They are many voters out there want to destroy both established party. If these people have a long term vision, this is the best opportunity to destroy GOP by totally leaning towards Democratic Party. Once Hillary get elected they can continue the movement and take out Democratic Party in the next election. Provided nothing changes while she is in the White House.

        What happens if he was to drop out now? I remember Tom Eagleton had to withdraw as the VP nominee in 1972, but has any presidential candidate ever withdrawn after being officially named as their party’s nominee.

        • Lazycrockett

          Total chaos for one, second I would guess that the RNC has some rules or something tucked away incase something like death of candidate would happened. Probably the chairs would get together and vote Ryan in.

          • Bruno

            Ryan would probably beat Hillary at this point. Yuck.

          • johncAtl

            At this point I think that most of the base that supports Trump probably just wouldn’t vote if he’s not the nominee.

          • Martin

            I think that’s right, the vast majority of them was just stay home and many of those might divorce themselves of the GOP permanently, or for at least quite a long while. Perhaps this is why Ryan, Priebus, et al are bending over so far for him, he has the power to cripple the GOP for a generation by simply quitting and they know it.

          • Lazycrockett

            But from what I’ve read the majority of Drumpf supporters are from white working males who aren’t regular republican voters so the GOP really isn’t losing anything if Drumpf leaves, or dies.

          • johncAtl

            What I see at the Trump rallies looks exactly like the GOP/Tea Party base that does vote.

          • Bruno

            It’d probably depend if he quit with reason or he was forced out. Forced out? They’d definitely all stay home.

        • Martin

          The rules of the Republican Party authorize the RNC to fill the vacancy either by reconvening a national convention or by having the RNC state representatives vote. The new nominee must receive a majority vote to officially become the party candidate.

          If the candidate were to quit or die between the general election on Nov. 4 but before the electoral college votes on Dec. 15, there is no federal law that mandates how electors must cast their votes; they could vote for the VP candidate, a third-party candidate, or a leading preconvention contender within their own party, or practically anyone, but state laws make this murky given that each state has the power to determine exactly how its electoral votes are to be cast and distributed.

          If the candidate were to quit or die after the election but before the inauguration on Jan 20, the 20th amendment says the vice-president elect assumes his or her spot, however the point at which a candidate officially becomes “president elect is debatable until Jan 6 when a joint session of congress oficially counts the electoral college votes and declares a winner, but the shift could be said to occur immediately after the electoral college vote.

          If a candidate quits or dies after Dec 15 but before Jan. 6, congress, when it convenes, has to decide whether to count the votes cast for him. In 1872, 3 electoral votes cast for the late Horace Greeley were discounted by Congress, but it is unclear if votes cast for a living candidate who subsequently dies or quits would be treated the same way. If congress decides the votes are valid, the presidential succession kicks in and the running mate moves up the ladder, if congress throws out the votes, the the question becomes whether the living candidate can be said to have a majority of the overall electoral votes — if not, then, according to the 12th amendment, the House of Representatives must elect the president from among the three candidates with the most votes.

      His ego won’t allow it at this point and if Pence runs… hoo boy, he’ll get crushed.

        That’s my thinking too – but it sure seems like he’s reaching the end of his patience/rope/meds – SOMETHING that is getting to him. I find it hard to believe on some level that he could stand to go all the way to the end, knowing that he is going to lose. THIS part is fun – but the inevitable is humiliating and he knows that. I just can’t see him doing it.

        • Bruno

          Better hope he sticks it out, because the RNC can just choose whomever the fuck they want if he withdraws.

          • Ninja0980

            Exactly, and if it’s someone like Kasich (who is no better then Trump) they will win the White House, simple as that.

          • Bruno

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        Also if Rmoney can stick it out to the end, Trump will do so just so Rmoney can’t make fun of him for dropping out. Spite will keep him on board. He’ll probably just not bother to do even the small amount of work he’s doing.

      Wow is that a switch for rubio. just the other day he was anti t rump. Grayson is pretty much out due to all the stuff that was released this week about him. That leaves Murphy who is running a good set of commercials here with Mr Obama endorsing him. Murphy has been targeted as someone with little experience and of course a liar by the repubs, but seems to be the best option overall. I still am a bit cautious with Murphy as he has only switched to the democratic party in the past few years. ( a bit unproven imo ) Still. it is way better than the alternative.

        I wish Gwen Graham or Kathy Castor had run instead but I’ll take Murphy over Rubio any day of the week.

        • djcoastermark

          I really like Kathy Castor. She has personally helped me when I was going through a fight over medical insurance when dealing with cancer. She put me in touch with the right people. Not often I can say a rep actually takes notice and does something for the little guy.

      • justmeeeee

        Marco just knows that his party loyalty will be repaid when he tries again in four years. It’s actually scary considering how unpoopular Hillary is–if Marco plays his cards right, he could end up where he wants. So it’s very important that the Dems put all sorts of resources into being sure he loses this senate race, even though Murphy’s pretty much of an ass himself.

      • Lazycrockett

        Well the GOP offered Mario a return to the senate free card, so of course he’s going to tow the party line.

    • I live in Florida. Rubio is actually running against Trump in his ads — and against Clinton of course (clever move on his part). I am amazed his is doing so well in the polls, because he has such bad press here. I got my ballot today for the Democratic Primary and I am going to vote for Murphy. .

      • Ninja0980

        Hopefully Murphy will hit on that in his ads and in the debates that despite what he is saying, Rubio is pushing for Trump to win.

      • djcoastermark

        I wonder if his ads will change now that he is pro trump?

        • I did not know he is pro Trump now thanks for the heads up.

    • djcoastermark

      I don’t know which is worse rubio or beruff, the multi millionaire , million dollar donator to t rump . Beruff often calls Obama “an animal” in his speeches.

    One of the worldwide trending topics on twitter right now is #TrumpDebateExcuses.

    • Lazycrockett

      Sarcastic Drumpf topics have been trending for the last 4 days. He must be flipping out that twitter has started hate tweeting him.

      • safari

        I don’t think so. The internet is talking about him. And that’s ratings. Doesn’t matter if it is good or bad.

        • Bruno

          I think that’s the type of thing he tells himself when he’s trying to mollify his own temper after reading something said against him.

    • Blake Jordan

      As Sanders came to realize, having your fandom being annoying and unavoidable on Twitter and other social media, does not translate to votes…

      So we might get 100 days of relentless bashing of Drumpf on line, but if these people don’t turn up to the polling stations to vote…

  • sherman
  • SoCalVet

    I think those people are delusional and will always think they are winning…and Trumps ego won’t let him withdraw…so it’s on like Donkey Kong.

  • I am more saddened for my country that Donald Trump is the nominee of the Republican Party, the party of Abraham Lincoln, than frightened for it.

    • johncAtl

      That’s a tough one. I’m sad that so many people believe what he says. And it frightens me that they would vote for him. Who knows what his election would mean for the US. If you had asked me a year ago if I thought Britain would leave the EU I would have laughed at something so preposterous.

      • I also am British (I am a dual citizen). I agree with you. I am stunned about Brexit. I live in the USA now and was born in the USA but spent half my life in West London and Surrey This is why I am worried about Trump. My British friends tell me that Brexit was all about racism and people voting because they were scared about unlimited immigration for what its worth — especially from the Middle East.

        • johncAtl

          A lot of the comments I read following the Brexit vote said that there was a lot of similarity between those in Britain that voted to leave the EU, and the Tea Party voters in the US.

          Scary. I thought it was contained to the US but apparently this special brand of stupid is a global epidemic.

        • One of the interviews about Brexit was someone who voted for but was dismayed/surprised that it passed. I worry that too many Americans think that Trump can’t win and play with their vote.

          • Ninja0980

            If it can happen in Britain, it can happen here.
            I hope our side has realized that with the British vote.

        • djcoastermark

          There’s a sad bit of humor in that all they would have to do instead of building a trump wall is to destroy the chunnel and put up gun turrets around the shores. It is an island (ish) after all.

      oh good lard. go away Do people actually go to those sites?

  • Is there anyone out there who thought that Julian Assange was wonderful at one point — perhaps even thinking that he should have won the Nobel Peace Prize when he was nominated for it in 2011 – and now has changed their mind on him and questioned his “unbiased sense of fair play” and “true motives” even just a wee bit? (yes I am being sarcastic).

    • johncAtl

      It would appear that his motive now is simply to destroy the US.

      • moebym

        He just wants his revenge on Hillary – consequences be damned.

    • djcoastermark

      I thought the premise was cautiously interesting , but now it seems he is a one sided mad man who has gone off the rails.

    • Lazycrockett

      Assange’s problem is that he expected hero worship for his effort, when he wasn’t received as the great wiki hope, he has become increasingly bitter and anger.

    • crankyd

      Asslozenge was always in it for his own self-aggrandization. He carries SERIOUS personality disorder traits.

      WTF. Humpty Dumpty ? That has to be one one of the weirdest legal documents. NC has gone way off the deep end. ( not that we didn’t know that already )

      • coram nobis

        The ACLU should counter with “The Walrus and the Carpenter,” which talks about oysters and deception.

      Dear lard what’s next? Banning little miss muffet from setting on her tuffet ?

      Is this “Liberty””Counsel” handiwork or are the NC GOP lawmakers perfectly capable of hiring local bigot “talent”?

          Fuck. They didn’t even vote on Obama’s pick for SCOTUS, and this was back when he still had a year left in his term
