Donald Trump has gone to war against the four freshman representatives of color that refer to themselves as the “Squad.” His plan is to paint the four Democrats as the face of the Democratic party and demonize them. He regularly calls them out by name, and as a result, they have had many death threats. Yet, there is a golden gem of satisfaction for the American people.
The Simpsons decided to make fun of Trump with a 90-second clip they just released. It was entitled West Wing Story and featured Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib(D-MI).
In the short, the president decided to declare war on the four women as a “distraction” to keep the voters’ attention away from the faltering economy and his tariff trade war with China.
The wonderful take-off of Stephen Sondheim’s and Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story has the four women and Trump singing to one another to the tune of the song America. The women sing:
‘We’re more American than your wife.’
The president responds:
‘She’s not a big presence in my life.’
The four freshman sing in unison:
‘You’re Boris Johnson without the class.
Can’t wait to see you behind prison glass.
Your nose is right up Putin’s ass.
We say it’s time to impeach you fast.’
This Simpsons clip also included cameos of a handful of 2020 presidential election Democratic candidates. These included:
‘Former Vice President Joe Biden and Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).’
The producers of The Simpsons have resisted digging into the fertile fields of Trump’s flaws. However, they have produced some memorable clips from both before and after the 2016 election starring POTUS’ animated self, and those tend to go viral.
One of those shorts reached into the future and showed a grownup President Lisa Simpson. She had what she called:
‘Quite the budget crunch from President Trump.’
POTUS’ racism ran rampant with the four women as his primary target. He called upon Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to ban the women from Israel in a serious change in international protocol. All freshman representatives have the opportunity to travel to the country in which the U.S. is deeply invested. However, the two Muslim women, Omar and Tlaib, were refused entrance on Trump’s request.
Later, it became known that Tlaib’s grandmother lived on the Israeli-occupied West Bank. At that point, Netanyahu yielded and agreed to let the one congresswoman visit her grandmother, but with such severe restrictions, Tlaib declined.
Trump started out tweeting that the four representatives of color should “go back to” where they came from, according to The New York Times:
‘So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.’
The POTUS added:
‘Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done.’
Three of the women were born in U.S. states: Michigan, Massachusetts, and New York. Only Representative Omar was born abroad in Yeman, which her parents fled from the war. She has been an American citizen much longer than the president’s wife.
