The Simpsons Lists 50 Terrifying Reasons To Vote Against Trump: Watch

The latest Treehouse of Horrors episode finds terror in the voting booth

The Simpsons Lists 50 Reasons To Vote Trump Out
The Simpsons ‘Treehouse of Horror XXXI’

    It’s hard to imagine how a Treehouse of Horror edition from this year could muster up anything scarier than what’s going on outside of Springfield. Appropriately, the next episode of The Simpsons doesn’t even bother trying to toe that line with comedic subtlety.

    In an exclusive Variety preview clip from the 31st (!) installment of the annual Halloween-themed Simpsons episode, Homer is presented with a frightening list of 50 reasons why Trump needs to be voted out on November 3rd. After considering writing in Judge Judy, Lisa comes to the rescue and reminds her father of all the insane bullshit that our president has served over the last four years.

    A literal scrolling list of political atrocities (kids in cages, gutting the E.P.A.) and cringe-worthy moments (serving McDonald’s to the Clemson football team, calling Tim Cook “Tim Apple”) appears on the screen, and after he presumably chooses Trump’s opponent on the ballot, Homer delivers a classic dish of Simpsons self-awareness: “Who you gonna make fun of now, late night comics?”


    Check out the full clip and all 50 items on the list below.

    According to Variety, the upcoming episode will also feature parodies of Toy Story, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and Netflix’s Russian Doll. It premieres on Fox this Sunday October 18th at 8 p.m. ET.
