The long-running Simpsons cartoon has made every possible joke as pointed out in the South Park episode “Simpsons Already Did It.” Donald Trump isn’t the first comical candidate to be elected President. Springfield nominated its resident simpleton, Ralph Wiggum (Nancy Cartwright), in “E Pluribus Wiggum.” Executive producer Al Jean tweeted a clip from the episode dubbed “The Simpsons Predicted It!”
“Make this country great again,” says Ralph echoing Trump’s campaign slogan.
The show also mocked the notion of building a wall to keep immigrants out of Springfield in “Coming to Homerica.” The town is inundated with Norwegian workers from Ogdenville. The hardworking foreigners are initially welcomed but eventually blamed for unrelated problems in town. They are deported but not before building the wall themselves!
Trump insists he will similarly get Mexico to pay for the wall. When asked where he gets his military advice, Trump explained, “I watch the shows.” He apparently meant cartoons, which was predicted by his former rival Jeb Bush.
“I don’t know if that’s Saturday morning or Sunday morning,” Bush joked referring to Saturday morning cartoons.
