| Character Information
William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton is the forty-second President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001.
In the '90s, a young Homer Simpson said that there would never be a president worse than Bill Clinton, saying that lying in a deposition in a civil lawsuit is the worst sin a president could commit.
Bill Clinton once answered Lisa Simpson's complaint about a band contest, in which the Springfield Elementary School Band was beaten by the band of Ogdenville school which used an illegal tactic, using visual aids. President Clinton said that he thought their tactic was wrong so overturned the results of the competition personally, giving the prize to Springfield Elementary. He then said he wanted to teach kids a lesson to complain until things go their way. When Marge pointed out that was a lousy lesson, President Clinton said he was a lousy president.
When Superintendent Chalmers was tutoring Bart in American history and showed him an illustration depicting all of the Presidents, Clinton was one of the few that Bart could identify, referring to him as "sex guy".
Bill Clinton was running against Bob Dole in the 1996 presidential election. Shortly before the election, Kang and Kodos started to invade Earth and abducted Clinton and Dole before assuming their identities. The two of them then continued their campaigns until they were eventually unmasked by Homer. However, since the American democracy system is basically a two-party system, the people had to vote for one of them and Kang won.
During Lisa Simpson's term as President, it was revealed that Clinton had kept a stash of pornographic videos at Camp David. The collection was in a large box labeled "Girlies What Ain't Got No Clothes", and Bart's friends went through it when they were supposed to be helping Bart with a "coolness report" to present to Lisa.
Behind the Laughter
- The Bill Clinton character was voiced by Harry Shearer in early episodes, Phil Hartman in "Treehouse of Horror VII" and Karl Wiedergott in episodes since season 10.
- Bart's identifying Clinton as "sex guy" is a reference to the Lewinsky scandal.
