The right is incensed over this. I don't know why


"The Simpsons" compared White House adviser Kellyanne Conway to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels during its most recent episode.

During Sunday's show, Marge Simpson is elected the first female mayor of Springfield, and her team is finding ways for her to boost her popularity when a political adviser decides to use her husband, Homer, to improve her image.

“I’ll be the Kellyanne Conway of this thing!” the adviser says.

“Kellyanne Conway!” a woman in a focus group says. “I like how she always looks like she just woke up.”


“I think it’s inspiring how now a woman can be Joseph Goebbels,” another woman replies.

Goebbels was the minister of propaganda for the Nazi Party in Germany during and just before World War II.

Conway, who coined the phrase "alternative facts," has been criticized for her defenses of President Trump and his administration, especially on media appearances.

Most recently, Conway defended Trump’s tweet calling Kim Jong Un “short and fat,” saying he only insulted the North Korean dictator because Kim had “insulted him first.”

“I think that was the president just responding the way he does to somebody who insulted him first,” Conway said on ABC’s “This Week.”
