After Joe Biden unveiled California Senator Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential nominee for the 2020 elections, senior White House legal consultant Jenna Ellis sounded off on Twitter with a typically dignified response.
Well, a Trump administration version of dignified.
Kamala sounds like Marge Simpson.— Jenna Ellis (@Jenna Ellis) 1597267649.0
A couple days later, The Simpsons released a video of Marge Simpson responding to the insult.
Marge's message was pretty non-partisan.
"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."

Conservatives on Twitter were outraged at Marge's message, however.
Many of them expressed their displeasure on Twitter.

Many Trump supporters called for the show to be cancelled.

Trump supporters can't enjoy any show that doesn't blindly support the President.
@TheSimpsons just go off the air already, please, take what meager shreds of dignity you have left and pack it in, its 20 years past due.— 🇻🇦Gio’s Social impressionism Corner🛡🎨👁🌲📉 (@🇻🇦Gio’s Social impressionism Corner🛡🎨👁🌲📉) 1597430330.0
Meanwhile, the President's critics on Twitter loved Marge's message.
