The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company and has aired over 600 episodes since its 1989 debut.

The Simpsons has been cutting right through the nonsense for decades, and in ‘celebration’ of US president Donald Trump completing his first 100 days in office, they released a new video online on Thursday.

Like a lot of the Simpson’s, it’s both biting and rather dark. It opens with White House press secretary Sean Spicer dangling from a noose, and Trump campaign advisor Kellyanne Conway fleeing the scene. Upstairs, Jared Kushner (Trump’s son-in-law, and John Oliver’s latest target) and Steve Bannon are strangling each other.

In bed, Donald Trump reads a list of his accomplishments - lowering his golf handicap, increasing his Twitter followers, making it legal to shoot hibernating bears. When asked to read up on tax reports, he asks if he can just watch Fox News instead.

The video ends with Homer and Marge taking pills to cope.

Interestingly, The Simpsons has called Fox home for over 28 seasons now.

Like we said. Dark.
