‘The Simpsons’ Predicted Donald Trump’s Presidency 16 Years Ago

The Simpsons have an uncanny knack for predicting the future, and Trump’s recent presidency only proves it. Sixteen years ago, the show predicted that the reality-TV host would make it to the White House.

The 2000 episode “Bart to the Future” gives Bart a glimpse at what his (pretty pathetic) life will be like at age 40. In the vision, Lisa Simpson is the first “straight female” president. During a scene in the Oval Office, Lisa makes reference to how Trump tanked the American economy.

“As you know, we’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump,” she says.

“The country is broke! How could that be?” she continues before Bart storms in looking for a job.

We should have seen it coming. The Simpsons were trying to warn us all.
