Courtesy of “The Simpsons,” the ghost of Richard Nixon has offered up a little advice for President Trump: “If you have tapes, burn ‘em.”
“The Simpsons” mocked the POTUS on Friday with a new video short commemorating his 125th day in the Oval Office. It features Vice President Mike Pence scratching off the word “vice” from his nameplate and Trump attempting to squash his beef with former FBI Director James Comey. Trump is laying in a bed surrounded by books including “Two Scoops for Me,” “How to Lose Friends and Piss Off Israel” and “I’m Still Fired” by Bill O’Reilly.
“I want a do-over, I have no tapes, let’s make a deal. You hand over all your notes and I’ll erase the tapes,” the animated Trump said before realizing he contradicted himself. “There are no tapes! No tapes!”
The ghost of Nixon then tells Trump, “Thanks to you, I’m now the 44th best president.”
“The Simpsons” put out a similar video last month for the 100th day of Trump’s presidency, packed with jokes as it delved into the White House, evoking the famous “Treehouse of Horror” Halloween episodes.
Last time, Trump was surrounded by books like “Florida on $10 Million a Day” and “Killing a Good Thing” by Bill O’Reilly. Trump looked back on his “accomplishments” after 100 days. They include “lowering my golf handicap,” boosting Trump’s Twitter following by 700 people, and making it legal to shoot hibernating bears. “My boys will love that,” Trump exclaimed.
