In a viral clip posted over the weekend, The Simpsons portrayed Donald Trump as a Hitler speech-reading, dog hair-having, spray-tanned bozo yelling into a phone, and they weren’t too far from the truth.
In 1990, Ivana Trump told Vanity Fair that her husband kept a book of Hitler’s speeches, My New Order, next to the bed. The gift was reportedly from Trump’s friend, Marty Davis, who gave the book to Trump because he thought Trump might find it “interesting.” Ivana also revealed that John Walter, Trump’s cousin and then-employee, would click his heels together and say, “Heil Hitler” when visiting Trump in his office.
As for Trump’s spray tan, his love of Twitter and yelling, that’s public knowledge. The only secret The Simpsons writers may have revealed is the dog on his head. It’s on Trump to prove that’s not a small terrier perched atop his noggin.
