‘The Simpsons’ depicts Trump trying to bribe Mueller

“The Simpsons” released a new video Thursday mocking President Trump that depicts him attempting to bribe special counsel Robert Mueller into not charging him for a crime.
The video, posted to the show’s Twitter account, begins with Attorney General Jeff Sessions picking up Mueller in a limousine. Mueller asks if he’s being taken to meet with Trump.
“Our president would never stay in an overstated, rip-off joint like this,” Sessions says, gesturing out the window as the car pulls up to Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Mueller is escorted through a door marked “Russians Welcome” to meet with Trump.
“Don’t worry, I’m not going to fire you. I wanted to share something with you,” Trump says, before pulling a lever and showering the two characters in cash.
“That’s $750 million, Bob,” Trump says. “There’s never been a bigger one. I do the best bribes, everyone says so — the best! Everyone says so.”
“Mr. President, you have the right to remain silent,” Mueller says, before being interrupted by Trump saying “pardon me.”
“Oh, I’m not talking to you, I tried to pardon myself,” Trump says, to which Mueller replies, “It won’t work.”
After the pair leave the room, a cleaning woman enters. The woman removes her maid’s outfit to reveal herself as San Juan, Puerto Rico, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz (D).
“Finally, Puerto Rico catches a break,” she says, before beginning to vacuum up the cash.
The clip ends with a pleas for viewers to donate to relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
“The Simpsons” has mocked Trump in the past and has used short video clips posted to Twitter to encourage fans to donate to relief efforts in the U.S. territory, which is still reeling from Hurricane Maria.
