Comedian Kathy Griffin posted a photograph of Trump and Simpson together, captioning the photo: “POTUS with new attorney general???”

Comedian Jeff Ross also weighed in, writing: “OJ for Attorney General!”

Meanwhile, actor and Saturday Night Live Donald Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin went a step further, calling for Simpson to become president.
