Classic American comedy, "The Simpsons," teased the first couple of minutes of their next episode on Wednesday, chock-full of cracks at Donald Trump's first 100 days in office.

The clip opens on a dark and stormy night outside the White House, where we quickly discover that Sean Spicer has hung himself in the briefing room while Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon strangle one another in the hallway.

Upstairs, Trump sits comfortably in a regal White House bed, admiring positive coverage of himself on a cellphone. His hair (simultaneously a dog and a robot) has a life of its own.

Trump avoids doing his job while his daughter, Ivanka, takes over Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court.

The trailer then cuts to Marge and Homer Simpson as they watch the news at home. Marge realizes that she doesn't have enough medication to get through the next four years, a crack at Trump's war on Obamacare, as Grandpa gets arrested and deported by men in paramilitary uniform.

The Simpsons poked fun at Trump during his 2016 campaign, but has been relatively quiet since the inauguration.

The full episode airs on Sunday.
