Fox’s Family Guy took another shot at MAGA republicans in its latest episode, portraying Trump supporters as the evil creatures featured in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 horror classic The Birds.
In the Sunday episode, the Griffith family take a cross-country road trip to Oregon to visit the last remaining Blockbuster Video store.
During the journey, the family makes a pit stop at a Midwestern diner, finding themselves surrounded by Trump supporters, who are all wearing MAGA hats.
The show makes reference to The Birds’ final scene as the Griffith family slowly retreats to their car as the endless sea of Trump supporters watched their every move while squawking “Trump.”
Over the last few years, Family Guy has taken numerous shots at Donald Trump and his supporters, including one episode following the 2020 election in which imagined then-President Trump, his wife Melania, and Vice President Mike Pence hanging themselves in prison.
In a 2019 episode, Peter Griffin becomes Trump’s press secretary and witnesses the Trump character assaulting his daughter by grabbing her genitals.
It’s also important to note that despite President Joe Biden showing obvious signs of cognitive decline, Family guy seems uninterested in the comedic potential.
Instead, the show appears more interested in mocking Trump supporters.
It doesn’t come as a surprise that the creator of Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane, does not like Trump.
According to a Breitbart report, MacFarlane came out as one of Hollywood’s most prominent supporters of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, donating a large sum to a PAC affiliated with the 17-term politician.
MacFarlane signed a $200 million deal in 2020 with NBCUniversal, jumping ship from 20th Century Fox Television.
