The Simpsons agree to vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the forthcoming election in a new video clip released by 20th Century Fox.
The standalone clip, entitled 3am, has been made public via YouTube.
Donald Trump is seen with a copy of a book called Great Speeches by A. Hitler in the video.
When Homer Simpson signals that he might vote for Donald Trump, Marge says: “If that’s your vote, I question whether I can ever be with you again.”
He replies: “And that’s how I became a Democrat.”
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are set to face each other in the presidential election, which takes place on November 8.
Marge and Homer Simpson’ discussion comes about when Marge says that she “can’t make love until I’ve decided who to vote for”.
The narrator then poses the question: “It’s 3am and the phone is ringing in the White House – who do you want to answer that call?”
The question is a reference to Hillary Clinton’s political campaign of 2008, which ran an ad featuring a ringing phone at 3am, asking Americans who they wanted leading their country during a time of crisis.
Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are then seen responding to such a phone call.
Donald Trump responds by saying: “Not now, I’m on Twitter.”
The Republican then orders an aide to: “Put my name on the Lincoln memorial, disband NATO… and make me some scrambled eggs on gold plates.”
Former President Bill Clinton is seen initially answering the phone with: “The situation room? I’ll be right there.”
Bill Clinton’s face then falls as he hands the phone to Hillary, saying: “Oh, it’s for you.”
Hillary Clinton replies: “Yes, from now on, it’s always for me.”

The Simpsons’ executive producer Al Jean revealed during a recent conference call that the writers are “working on a script where a character will pass away”.
“We are doing this story for the same reason we do all others – we think it has a good emotional through line,” Al Jean told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, keeping under wraps whether the character would be killed off or pass away.
“The story will be produced this year though it may air in season 26.”

Al Jean hinted that “the actor playing the character won an Emmy” for the role, stopping short of revealing which of the beloved animated gang would not survive.
He told The Hollywood Reporter that the episode would happen sometime in mid- to late-2014.
In its 25 seasons, The Simpsons has killed off seven characters – Homer’s Las Vegas wife, Amber (season 16) and Ned’s wife Maude Flanders (season 11) among them.
Pressed for details, Al Jean would not comment beyond the Emmy clue when asked if the death would lead into a “Who Shot Mr. Burns?”-type story, only noting that he hoped the stunt would get “Breaking Bad-type numbers”.

When the famous cartoon families meet, of course Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin will go head to head over which beer is better – Duff or Pawtucket.
Family matriarchs Marge Simpson and Lois Griffin are apparently set to become pals, whilst Stewie and Bart will bond over their mutual love for pranks.
Fox gave comments on behalf of their characters, with Peter Griffin saying: “Fox hasn’t spent this much money since they took Simon Cowell tight T-shirt shopping,” and Homer Simpson adding: “Finally I can get my hands on this guy!”
The Simpsons, created by Matt Groening, and Family Guy, created by Seth MacFarlane, have never had an official crossover episode.
Seth MacFarlane has appeared in an episode of The Simpsons, and Dan Castellaneta of The Simpsons made an appearance on Family Guy, but that has been the extent of it to date.
The Simpsons has been running for 24 seasons now, while Family Guy is in its 11th season.
