The Simpsons” is taking aim at Donald Trump’s presidency for the show’s 31st installment of its series of Halloween episodes.

Variety revealed the long-running cartoon’s latest political bit, from the upcoming episode “Treehouse of Horror XXXI,” on Tuesday. The new scene shows Homer at a polling location, confident in all of his voting decisions sans the presidential vote. A mask-clad Lisa then barges into Homer’s voting booth to ask him if he has forgotten all of the happenings over the last four years. A list of many of the president’s controversial actions and remarks, ranging from calling Mexicans rapists to referring to Apple CEO Tim Cook as Tim Apple,  flashes over the screen.
