The Simpsons Predicted The Trump Presidency 16 Years Ago

It’s official: Donald J Trump is the 45th president of the United States. This is a fact most of us are currently struggling to process, since no one predicted with any certainty that the reality TV star businessman (with no previous political experience) could win.

Despite the shock, however, there’s one group of people who’ve known this has been coming for 16 years. Back in March 2000, the Simpsons aired an episode entitled Bart To The Future, which predicted Trump would one day become president, and with it, the world’s most powerful man.

The episode featured Bart looking 30 years into the future, in which a grown up Lisa Simpson was taking over from President Trump as the country’s first female president. Spooky, huh? So if you’re ready to feel well and truly freaked out, head on over to the next page.
