TRUMP PRESIDENCY PREDICTED BY SIMPSONS IN 2000
The now infamous "Bart to the Future" episode of "The Simpsons," which aired almost exactly 16 years ago, on March 19, 2000, predicted a Donald Trump presidency. The outlook was not bright.
"It was a warning to America," writer Dan Greaney tells The Hollywood Reporter.
He adds: "And that just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane."
In the episode, Bart is shown a vision of his life. As an adult, he is pretty much a loser. Lisa, on the other hand, becomes the first "straight female" president of the United States. Enter the possible prediction.
"As you know, we've inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump," Lisa says to her staff, who inform her the country is broke due to her predecessor. In actuality, Trump will likely be the 2016 GOP presidential nominee.
