An episode of The Simpsons which aired way back in the year 2000 had an ominous warning. 

16-years-ago if you were asked if Donald Trump had a good chance of becoming the next president of the United States of America, you would have fallen over laughing. The idea seemed ridiculous even just years ago. 

The Simpsons, however, managed to predict Trump’s rise over sixteen whole years ago. 

On March 19, 2000, during the episode “Bart to the Future” Bart gets a glimpse at his future adult life. His overachieving sister, Lisa, has grown up to be ‘America’s first straight female president’.

Who was president of the United States before her? Donald Trump! 


Watch the clip below to see the spooky throwback clip, and find out how Donald Trump’s presidency panned out in the world of The Simpsons.
