On Tuesday, Democratic nominee Joe Biden announced Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate for the 2020 election this November.
Minutes after the announcement, President Donald Trump's campaign rolled out its first attack ad. From the White House briefing room, Trump decried Harris as "mean" and amplified racist questions of her citizenship.
One particularly sophomoric attack came from Trump campaign legal advisor Jenna Ellis, who tweeted that Senator Harris sounded like Marge Simpson, the matriarch of television's The Simpsons.
The attack largely backfired, and "Marge Simpson" soon began trending on Twitter, with people insisting to Ellis that Marge is one of the most sensible, likable characters on the show.
Now, the fictional character responded to Ellis with a video message tweeted from the show's official account.
Simpson says in the video:
"I usually don't get into politics, but the President's senior advisor Jenna Ellis just said Kamala Harris sounds like me. Lisa says she doesn't mean it as a compliment. If that's so, as an ordinary suburban housewife, I'm starting to feel a little disrespected. I teach my children not to name call, Jenna."
Referring to herself as an "ordinary suburban housewife," Marge takes a subtle dig at Trump's bizarre tweets referring to suburban women as "housewives."
Ellis didn't seem fazed at the video.
But others praised the response.
Others thought 2020 was getting out of control.
Marge ends the video with, "I was gonna say I'm pissed off, but I'm afraid they'd bleep it.
