The Simpsons predicted the presidency of Donald Trump in 2000.
It was somewhat of a throwaway line at the time, but make no mistake, it was included very much on purpose.
The now infamous "Bart to the Future" episode of "The Simpsons," which aired almost exactly 16 years ago, on March 19, 2000, predicted a Donald Trump presidency. The outlook was not bright.
"It was a warning to America," writer Dan Greaney tells The Hollywood Reporter.
He adds: "And 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."
