Published Aug 31, 2016The Simpsons have a long-standing relationship with Donald Trump that goes far beyond both parties' weird hair, inaccurate hands and strange, off-putting skin tone. After the show predicted Trump's possible presidency way back in 2000, they've yet to stop lampooning him.
For the show's upcoming 28th season, writers have decided to poke fun at Donald Trump's disastrous for-profit school Trump University.
The episode is called "The Caper Chase," and sees Mr. Burns open his own for-profit university, where he later forces his power plant employees to become professors. We're sort of excited to see Homer become a teacher again — when he did it in 1994, it resulted in one of the show's best-ever episodes.
"I think it holds up if you've heard of Trump University or not," Simpsons showrunner Al Jean said in a statement to the Wall Street Journal. "The for-profit colleges aren't going away. We try to do things that are funny to people watching them then, but I always try to think of things that will be funny five years from now."
In addition to the regular cast, the episode will feature guest voices from Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jason Alexander, Ken Jennings and Suze Orman.
