The Simpsons Enlists Brainy Trio for Donald Trump Parody in Season 28

Following this summer’s Donald Trump-skewering viral short, The Simpsons is once again targeting the Republican presidential candidate in its upcoming 28th season — with a little help from a few familiar names.

Financial guru Suze Orman, renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and famed screenwriter Robert McKee will serve as a “super team of educators” at a new school founded by C. Montgomery Burns, executive producer Al Jean tells TVLine.

“We have a great episode where Burns goes to Yale and discovers, much to his horror, how politically correct it is,” Jean says. “So he starts his own college, Burns University, which is similar to another billionaire’s university you might have heard of lately.”

And although The Simpsons never got a response from Trump’s camp (re: that pro-Hillary Clinton short I mentioned earlier), Trump is well aware that a version of himself exists in Springfield.

“There’s a photo of him signing a poster which was [made from] the first spot we did on him a year ago, which was not so flattering,” Jean says. “But he’s autographing it for somebody. I think his problem is that he doesn’t like criticism, but of course, he’s opened himself up for more than any human will ever get in all of history.”

Will you be applying to Burns University when The Simpsons returns Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8/7c? Drop a comment with your hopes for Season 28 below.

    Seriously, cancel this show. It seems so desperate to try to stay relevant doing stuff like this. (I´m not a Trump supporter, I just thing this show jump the shark years ago.

  2. Make lots of more Simpsons season they brilliant the episodes

    I wouldn’t necessarily argue that the short was pro-Clinton. I thought that it painted Clinton a bit of a shrew and resentful of her husband. Granted, the portion that made fun of Trump was far longer.

      Well Trump keeps giving material by the boatloads. Clinton’s got plenty of stuff to make fun of, from the Best of the 90s to more recent ‘hits’ such as the implications that the DNC establishment was basically pushing the game in her favor, the FBI flat out accusing her of being a brazen liar, Clinton Foundation questionable funding, her inability to properly address the idea that opinions and understanding of things change over time (most politicians have this problem but man she seems really bad at this), and then there’s all the conspiracy stuff with Benghazi and the concussion… Still given how Trump seems to daily, well, trump something stupid or baffling he says, it’s kind of a shotgun versus machine gun situation.

      • JScout says:

        All the Clinton stuff is ridiculous. She’s been exonerated (by Republicans, special prosecutor, Congressional committees, and Republican FBI director) on all counts. The rest is just silly conspiracy nonsense.

    I don’t think Trump’s problem is that he doesn’t like criticism, I think his problem is that any attention is good attention whether it be negative or positive. He also has multitudes of other problems but this is not the space to talk about them.
