Meanwhile, at South Park Elementary, Strong Woman and PC Principal face a whole new set of challenges in their relationship.
The school shooting's continue as city counsel decides to cut this years Christmas pageant funding, and Mr Hanky is upset, which leads to him making public tweets about citizens in Southpark. Meanwhile, Vice Principal Strong Woman has PC quintuplets and denies PC Principal being the father, as they try to hide their intimate relationship with one another. Mr. Hanky is in denial about his aggressiveness as well as his drug problem with Ambien. While Kyle goes to bat for him to defend him to the community. Mr. Hanky and Kyle put on an on-stage Christmas musical performance, but Mr. Hanky gets upset over the PC babies crying about his micro-aggressions and then gets into a fight with Kyle after Kyle tries to be the voice of reason in public. After Mr. Hanky loses Kyle's support, he is made to leave town in a "Lyft" (Similar to Uber), that the mayor refers to as a "Poober", and is sent to Springfield, to the home of the Simpsons. The episode ends with Apu, bart, and other characters, welcoming Mr. Hanky to Springfield, before the credits reveal Matt and Trey using the hashtag #cancelthesimpsons.
