The fictional character responded Friday in a video on the official "Simpsons" Twitter account.
"I usually don't get into politics, but the president's senior adviser Jenna Ellis just said Kamala Harris sounds like me," Simpson says.
"Lisa said she doesn't mean it as a compliment," she says, adding that as an "ordinary suburban housewife, I’m starting to feel a little disrespected."
"I teach my children not to name-call, Jenna. I was gonna say I'm pissed off, but I'm afraid they'd bleep it."
