Last month, the creators of the Simpsons marked 100 days of President Donald Trump's administration with a parody video. Last weekend they uploaded a new video, this time marking 125 days of the presidency of the man who hasn't stopped providing material for satirists.

The new video centered around the firing of FBI Directory James Comey, for which Trump was once again compared to an American President also known for scandal, Richard Nixon.

Nixon, who resigned from office in 1974 due to the Watergate scandal, appears in the video as a ghost who arrives for a surprise visit in Trump's presidential bedroom. At the same time, Trump asks Comey to destroy all the evidence against him in return for deleting all the tapes that do not exist.

The ghost of Nixon then tells Trump, “Thanks to you, I’m now the 44th best president.”

Among the books resting on Trump's blanket, fictitious of course, are "How to Lose Friends and Piss Off Israel," and "I'm Still Fired," by Bill O'Reilly.
