The Simpsons: Homer unmasks Putin at polls voting for Trump

Posted on

FOX

Voting day is almost here — according to Donald Trump, it’s Nov. 28 — and Homer is ready to cast his vote in a new web short. Who for? Well, that you already know: Hillary Clinton.

This time in the voting booth, there will be no funny business with the machines. Like we said: No funny business. Time for Homer to engage in some friendly banter with the Red Sox fan in front of him in line, who asks him who will get his vote. “The candidate who forgave her husband no matter what he did,” answers Homer, “not the guy who really likes his daughter.” Alas, this guy seems to be pushing hard for Trump: “Good business man, never sleeps. Doesn’t pay his taxes… legally.”

Homer is skeptical about a candidate who has gone bankrupt six times (“That’s two more times than me!”), but Red Sox Fan declares, “But the orange man, he will build a wall to keep out beauty queens who eat too much. Plus, he has a plan to make Russia great again!”

Wait a second, this guy’s accent is starting to seep through. Wait another second: It’s Russian President Vladimir Putin! The next you know, his shirt’s off, a horse is here, and a wrecking ball starts wrecking the Kremlin. Oh, and Grandpa Simpson is in charge of voter identification, so good luck with that whole election thing this year.

The 600th episode of The Simpsons — a.k.a. Treehouse of Horror XXVII — airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
