"Simpsons" Takes Political Jab in Halloween Episode
Several news reports are noting a pointed political jab in this year’s “Treehouse of Horror” episode of The Simpsons, which is currently scheduled to air on November 5. Apparently, this particular political jab is notable for being made only two days before Election Day in the United States and for airing on the Fox network. Some small segments of the episode may still be cut according to executive producer Al Jean, although not due to pressure from Fox. Jean also laughed off assertions that the episode is an attempt to influence voters.
Spoilers for the episode are in many of the news articles, including some extended quotes from characters on the show.
