“The Simpsons” offers dozens of reasons not to vote to reelect President Trump in a scene appearing in the annual Halloween-themed episode of the long-running animated series airing this Sunday.

Fox confirmed the episode includes a scene in which the cartoon’s bumbling, main protagonist Homer Simpson is depicted as an undecided voter who briefly reflects on Mr. Trump’s presidency.

The scene, first reported by Variety, shows the character voting on Election Day but struggling to decide who to pick for president, prompting his daughter Lisa Simpson to react with disbelief.

“You’re hesitating over president? Dad, by all that’s decent, how can you forget everything that’s happened the last four years?” she says in the scene.

Homer then ponders for several seconds as a list of 50 unflattering claims and facts about Mr. Trump scrolls across the screen, from “Looks lousy in a tennis outfit” to “Destroyed democracy.”

Among the dozens of other items listed include “Said Jewish people who vote Democrat are disloyal,” “Served McDonald’s to Clemson football team” and “Pulled the U.S. out of climate agreement.”

The scene is set to appear in the 31st installment of the show’s annual “Treehouse of Horrors” episode airing Sunday on Fox, the network told The Washington Times following Variety’s report.

Election Day takes place weeks later on Nov. 3.
