"President? That's a stumper!" he muses in the voting booth.

Fortunately his bright and observant daughter Lisa shows up (in her mask) to remind him of 50 reasons NOT to re-elect Donald Trump. The animators helpfully scroll the damning list onscreen for Homer's (and our) edification.

In the end, of course, a nimrod like Homer will figure out his very own peculiar rationale for dumping Trump. D'oh!

"Everyone should compare this terrible Electoral Intrusion with the recent interviews of Sleepy Joe Biden!"
