Groenig’s The Simpsons Attacks Trump, Still No Epstein Jokes

This is just one more reason I’ve become so disenchanted with the Simpsons cartoon, and largely avoided it for over a dozen years now. Matt Groening and his animation staff have taken the side of 4-5 awful Democrats in a musical video, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and even Joe Biden:

 

 

 

“So many problems, tariffs — I need a distraction,” Trump sings at the beginning of the 90-second clip titled “West [Wing] Story.”

“They shouldn’t be in America,” the cartoon President Trump sings while holding up a photo of the Democrat women. “No one but me in America. No taxes for me in America. This is my natural hair-ica.”

“We’re more American than your wife,” Omar says.

“She’s not a big presence in my life” the cartoon Trump responds while running away from the four women.

“Your love life makes us heave,” Ocasio-Cortez says.

“You two will never see Tel Aviv,” Trump replies, a nod to Israel officially barring Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from entering the country.

“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,” the women all sing.

The clip ends with the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates shoulder-to-shoulder performing a Rockettes-esque high-kick routine that Trump joins in on. “Ha ha. Who’s the old man now,” Joe Biden digs at Trump, who’s out of breath and face down on the ground.

I must sadly conclude this hints where Groening and company stand on Israel too? Well, even in its first decade, they did have at least a few filthy jokes in episodes I’d rather not revisit again. And how offensive can they get towards Melania Trump? Not to mention it’s insulting to the foreigners they supposedly wanted to join the populace in the USA. For these leftists, if an immigrant is a Republican supporter, he/she is taboo. To imply Melania’s inferior as an immigrant to someone of Omar’s standing is reprehensible in the extreme.

And no sooner did this news come about, so too did the additionally disturbing news that series creator Matt Groening used to be pals with the now deceased child rapist Jeffrey Epstein, even riding with him in a private jet allegedly while receiving foot massages from an underage girl:

 

One of Jeffrey Epstein’s public accusers claims she had to give a foot massage to The Simpsons creator Matt Groening while on the rich criminal’s private jet, though she was repulsed by the cartoonist’s “crusty toes,” according to newly-released court documents.

Hours prior to Epstein’s August 10th death, more than 2,000 pages of documents were released, related to a since-settled lawsuit against Epstein’s ex-girlfriend by Virginia Giuffre, one of his accusers. The records contain graphic allegations against Epstein, as well as the transcript of a 2016 deposition of the millionaire in which he repeatedly refused to answer questions to avoid incriminating himself. According to the documents, Giuffre alleges she met Groening aboard Epstein’s private plane, dubbed elsewhere as the “Lolita Express,” and that he asked her to give the cartoonist a foot massage during their flight from Carmel, California, to Los Angeles. Giuffre, 35, claims the incident occurred roughly 20 years ago, when she was 16.

“I was enjoying our conversation, when Jeffrey insisted that I give Matt a foot massage throughout the duration of the short flight,” Giuffre alleges in the documents. “I never turned down a client but when I saw the shape of his feet, I nearly threw up at the thought of having to touch them.”

“He had yellow crusty toenails that even someone with a chainsaw would’ve had troubles cutting through and then there was the fluffy balls of leftover pieces of sock wedged between the crevices of his sweaty toes, now that was the real icing on the cake for me, no way could I attempt this I thought,” she added. “Then I had an idea. I went to the back of the plane and rinsed a wash cloth in warm soapy water and returned for his dreaded foot massage but not before attempting to clean them first.”

Groening has not publicly addressed Giuffre’s allegations. The producer’s Simpsons series is the longest-running sitcom in history; the 31st season will premiere this September on Fox. Groening has gone on to create two other animated shows with similar art styles: the sci-fi Futurama ran on Fox and Cartoon Network and, just last year, his fantasy-themed Disenchantment debuted on Netflix.

 

While there’s no evidence so far Groening ever took part in the same kind of ghastly parties Epstein arranged or knew what lay beneath the mask, Groening’s associations with the repellent monster do not help his reputation in light of this new politically motivated cartoon video. And it makes me ever more discouraged from bothering about watching the Simpsons again, and feel glad I hadn’t watched much of Futurama. As for Disenchantment, the title says it all. Still, this news about Groening’s toes does suggest he got the idea to make the cartoon cast so emphatically yellow from looking down at his feet, ditto the name for Krusty the Clown.

 

A terrible shame he has to be so obsessed with his political positions.

 

This kind of partisan attack is not going to age well as it turns off half the audience.
