Earlier this week Jenna Ellis, Donald Trump’s adviser/lawyer, came under scrutiny after she compared newly announced Joe Biden running mate Kamala Harris to Marge Simpson. And just because she’s a fictional character, that doesn’t mean that Marge Simpson is going to let someone use her name as an insult.

“I usually don’t get into politics,” Marge Simpson states in a video shared on The Simpsons Twitter page. “But the President’s senior adviser Jenna Ellis just said Kamala Harris sounds like me. Lisa says she doesn’t mean it as a compliment. And if that’s so, as an ordinary suburban housewife, I teach my children not to name call, Jenna.“
Wow. Some strong words from one of everyone’s favorite cartoon mothers. This was certainly a direction we didn’t see things going in. But the real question is, why does Marge Simpson sound a lot like actress Julie Kavner?? Hm…
