Pompeo tried to mock Pelosi with a 'Simpsons' meme

Pompeo tried to mock Pelosi with a 'Simpsons' meme”

While these actions later faced scrutiny from both, the Democrats and Republicans, the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also "tried" to criticise Pelosi by sharing a Lisa Simpson's photo on February 5 but it "backfired".

Pompeo tweeted a GIF Tuesday night from a season 3 episode of "The Simpsons" - "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington" - showing a crying Lisa Simpson ripping up an essay she wrote for a national contest in response to Pelosi ripping up a copy of Trump's speech.

The tweet came after Pelosi tore up her copy of President Trump's State of the Union speech immediately after he finished addressing a joint session of Congress. Pelosi later told reporters it was "the courteous thing to do given the alternative".

The shot options Lisa Simpson within the episode "Mr. Lisa Is going to Washington", by which Lisa turns into disappointed with govt and tears up her paper at the roots of Democracy. Be a leader and fight you (sic) own fight! "Oh, wait I forgot, you're a follower".

Simpsons fans further questioned whether Pompeo understood the context of the meme he posted.

If Pompeo sees a parallel between Nancy Pelosi last night and Lisa Simpson's shattered faith from that episode, the Speaker should probably see that as a compliment. "But to be clear, Lisa would hate Mike Pompeo more than the fictional politicians she's crying over in this episode", tweeted Allie Goertz, the co-host of the Simpsons podcast Round Springfield. "Such a flawless self-own", @davitydave tweeted accompanied by a hypnotic gif of a Simpsons scene that repeatedly zooms into itself. The tension between the two during Trump's speech initially appeared as Trump snubbed an attempted handshake from Pelosi, and the House Speaker responded to Trump's address by tearing up the transcript , much to the ire of the GOP.

At the end of the episode, Lisa's revised essay exposes the congressman's corruption and he's arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
