It opens with a scene involving Sean Spicer and a noose, and it's pretty much downhill from there. The Simpsons on Wednesday released a 96-second clip that weighs in on President Trump's first 100 days in office, with Mashable calling the show's take "scathing." The clip shows Trump in bed, surrounded by books with titles like Florida on $10 Million a Day as he touts his accomplishments, among them, lowering his golf handicap and upping his Twitter followers ... by 700.

Cracks about his TV viewing habits, Ivanka and her clothing line, Russian rubles, and Prozac follow, capping off with a reminder that "we are 6.8% of the way home." The Simpsons has weighed in on Trump before, both relatively recently and in the past: The AP recalls a 2000 episode depicting President Lisa Simpson—who took the office after President Trump.
