The Simpsons attacks Trump staffers

We should've known, it would only be a matter of time before a cartoon series that turned out to be overrated would end up demonizing a member of Donald Trump's staff in the worst way possible, as the series writers compare Kelly Anne Conway to the nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels:
Sunday’s episode saw Marge Simpson defeat “sexist” Mayor Quimby to become Springfield’s first female mayor. When Marge’s favorability begins to tank, a political advisor convenes a focus group and discovers “throwing” Homer Simpson “under the bus” is the key to boosting Marge’s popularity with voters.

“I’ll be the Kellyanne Conway of this thing!” the political adviser tells her strategists and a room full of focus group participants.

“Kellyanne Conway!” one woman in a focus group says. “I like how she always looks like she just woke up.”

“I think it’s inspiring how now a woman can be Joseph Goebbels,” another woman in the focus group says, while the entire room mumbles in agreement.
A few months before the recent episode, there was another one depicting Sean Spicer in a most nasty manner. The Family Guy was no better in its own depictions of Conway.

Stuff like this makes me glad I quit watching the Simpsons back in the mid-2000s.

Goebbels told big lies as part of a large Master Plan; Conway lies to cover for her boss. There is a difference.
