There’s A ‘Simpsons’ Version Of ‘America’ From West Side Story Featuring AOC And Her Squad
Donald Trump and his recent strikes against The Squad have officially gotten the attention of the “The Simpsons.”
In a new clip featured in the Fox animated series, set to return next month on Sept. 29, Trump agonizes over Democratic congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib in a musical rant. The episode comes after a summer of attacks by Trump on the freshman congresswoman whom he recently said should go back to the “totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
The fun clip features Trump and AOC squaring off in a political musical rendition of the West Side Story classic “America.”
The short clip features Trump as he broods over our collapsing economy.
Picking up a picture of the democratic congresswoman, Trump sings a miserable rendition of the beloved Broadway classic.
“They shouldn’t be in America / No one but me in America / No taxes for me in America / This is my natural hair-ica,” he sings to the tune of “America,” he grumbles while signing a song that originally spoke of the struggles immigrants endure in the United States.
Of course, in true Simpsons style, it doesn’t take long for the animated versions of the congresswomen to leap from the picture and strike back.
“Your love life makes us heave,” an animated version of Ocasio-Cortez sings before the group launches into a line that can at best be pretty on point.“You’re Boris Johnson without the class / Can’t wait to see you behind prison glass,” they sing.
The group of congresswoman delivers a few more classic zingers to the president as they give chase to him around the White House. “Your nose is right up Putin’s a** / We say it’s time to impeach you fast,” are just a few more lines from the episode.
Eventually, the song morphs into a bizarre new number of “Can You Can Can?”
Soon enough, Trump is surrounded by animated singing versions of Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren. It doesn’t take long for the president to realize he can’t keep up with the Democratic presidential hopefuls and collapses right on the lawn of the White House.
It’s not much of a comparison to the classic lyrics once sung by Rita Moreno but we’re here for the drag.
The parody is a reminder that AOC and her fellow congresswomen are proving to be a welcome distraction for Trump as he evades rising problems such as our steeply declining economy and virulent trade wars.
The two politicians continue to hit back at each other on a regular basis on Twitter. For some reason, AOC seems to really kid under the skin of the president of the United States’s skin. This is despite the fact that our senate holds 99 other senators for him to focus his attention on. True to what we’ve seen before, something about powerful women of color with strong voices really does irk our sorry president.
