The ongoing Twitter skirmish between President Trump and the so-called “Squad” — the nickname of four Democratic U.S. congresswomen, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — has at times felt like a twisted cartoon version of real life. So, of course, The Simpsons turned the ongoing conflict into an acutal 90-second animated bit dubbed “West Wing Story” this week, in which the already orange-faced Tweeter-in-Chief sings about wanting to exile the four to the tune of “America” from West Side Story.
“They shouldn’t be in America/ No one but me America/ No taxes for me in America/ This is my natural hair-ica!,” a glum Trump sings to a photo of the members of Congress after lamenting “so many problems… tariffs… I need a distraction.” The four outspoken reps then burst out of the photo and chase a scared Trump through the White House on the same day Trump has been widely criticized of using an anti-Semitic trope by accusing Jewish American voters of “great disloyalty” if they vote for Democrats. “We’re more American than your wife,” they sing, as a worried Trump responds, “She’s not a big presence in my life.”
“Your love life makes us heave,” Ocasio-Cortez shoots back as Trump threatens, “You two will never see Tel Aviv” — a reference to his ongonig war of words with Tlaib and Omar over their now-scotched plans to visit Israel. “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.”
By the end, Trump is doing a can-can line dance with all the 2020 democratic presidential candidates while struggling to catch his breath as former Vice President Joe Biden jokes, “Who’s the old man now?” The Simpsons will be back for its 30th season on Sept. 29.
