Trivia

While this episode does parody Donald Trump to an extent, as he was one of the headers of the infamous "Birther Movement" that plagued Obama in 2008, it also managed to parody his 2016 election campaign, (despite the show being cancelled three years before he announced his running). For example, Nixon promises (and is shown in the future to build) a wall around the solar system to keep illegal aliens from entering - not unlike the wall Donald Trump proposed to build at the Mexican border to keep illegal immigrants out.

Goofs

Bender goes on about since how the robot uprising never occurred, Travers was never sent back into the past, and then Travers disappears and his campaign disappears and Nixon is reported on the news as having won with no opposition, yet Hermes acts surprised by it, Bender knew what happened and so did everybody else. But by the same token Bender talked about, none of them would know any of that happened at all. The Travers campaign would never have happened and they would never have met Travers and they would not have the memories about it at all. See more »

One Long Political Ad - And Nothing But a Political Ad
4 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen a lot of TV shows with current political issues. And I'm a long time Futurama fan and always will be. But this particular episode was one long thought about Barack Obama. From his Nobel Prize to the birth certificate issue, to Harvard to being from Kenya and much more. I have no particular problem with anyone having a political opinion or issue. But there are places for political ads and interviews. And to turn a TV episode into one long political ad is to betray the loyal fans. Also taking on political issues with so little respect as to showcase it in a half hour animated series,. is absurd. In every way this episode is a loser. It was one long political ad and nothing but a political ad.
