The Simpsons has been on the air for nearly three decades, but who would have ever thought that the long-running animated show would end up predicting the future?
In 2000, The Simpsons aired an episode in which we see the yellow family in the future. Brainy Lisa is the president of the United States and has succeeded none other than President Donald Trump! That’s right, what was probably meant as a far-out joke for The Simpsons is frighteningly close to reality today.
In the episode, the country is left ravaged from Trump’s reign, having “borrowed [money] from every country in the world” and leaving no funds for anything else. Though the episode hit a bull’s eye with the idea of Donald Trump as president, let’s hope that the rest of the details—Trump actually winning the election and the economy fatality if he does win—will remain outlandish jokes we can once again laugh at!
