The Simpsons Predicted Donald Trump Would Become US President 16 Years Ago

The Simpsons predicted that Donald Trump would become President of the United States back in 2000.
He appeared in an episode called Bart To The Future 16 years ago and was later referenced in another clip called Trumptastic Voyage.
The iconic cartoon’s creator, Matt Groening, said: ‘Trump was of course the most absurd placeholder joke name that we could think of at the time, and that’s still true. It’s beyond satire.’


Dan Greaney, a writer for the Simpsons also told The Hollywood Reporter that the clip had a dark message behind it.

He said: ‘It was a warning to America. 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 first clip, Lisa sits in the White House as she says: ‘We’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump. How bad does it get?’
Her staff let her know in graph form that her country is broke due to her predecessor.
Donald Trump marked his world-shaking victory over Hillary Clinton early on Wednesday morning with a dramatic peace-making gesture, saying: ‘We owe her a debt of gratitude and I mean that very sincerely.’


After he sensationally won the White House race, Clinton phoned him at 2:30 a.m. to concede she had lost.
She made the private call shortly after sending her campaign chairman to give her supporters exactly the opposite message, that it was not over.
Clinton is yet to be seen publicly.
