This week’s episode of Family Guy included an election-related joke about Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg. Does this mean that the series has boldly attacked the immoral role that Mark Zuckerberg played in? influence the 2020 elections through private funding of polling offices? Obviously not. Instead, the show pushed the ridiculous 5 years states that Facebook data mining rigged the 2016 election for Donald Trump.
In the episode “Peterschmidt Manor”, on Sunday November 14, Lois (Alex Borstein) recalls a childhood conversation with her nanny, Meredith. The nanny offers a unique rendition of the story “The Ugly Duckling”, with Zuckerberg in the role of the duckling.
Meredith: Have you ever heard the story of the ugly duckling?
Meredith: Well, once upon a time there was a young duckling that had a hard time fitting in, just like you. And one day, that duckling went to college and set up a website to rate women. Then he earned $ 100 billion and user data extracted to rig an election.
If the writers had relied on the recent controversies over the use of “Sugar Dollars” in the 2020 election, the bit wouldn’t seem so dated and pathetic. But Family Guy writers will never touch upon such issues around the recent election. Instead, Hollywood condemns the “crazy conspiracy theories” of 2020 while STILL tells them about 2016.
In the past, Family Guy has sometimes it worked when he aimed his gypsies both left and right. But this new fall season since Joe Biden’s election has been lame, making tired jokes about Sean Hannity. In a year when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris got used to humiliation gaffe, creator Seth MacFarlane has chosen to remain loyal to the establishment and obsess over Trump instead of mining the comical gold mine possible by satirizing the current embarrassing presidential administration.
