In the episode named “Bart to the Future”, aired on March 19, 2000, The Simpsons predicted a Donald Trump presidency. It was part of a Bart’s vision of his future life.
He sees that while he is a loser as an adult, his sister Lisa becomes the first female president of the United States. In one of the scenes, she is in the White House talking with her staff, and she says: “As you know, we’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump,” Lisa says. The prediction has now become true.
“It was a warning to America,” writer Dan Greaney told The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
“What we needed was for Lisa to have problems that were beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that’s why we had Trump be president before her,” he added.
