Friday OMG. The Simpsons knew all along!


The Simpsons seems to have predicted the Donald's presidency… and it didn't end well: Time travel episode from 2000 featured a broke nation reliant on aid from China. Sounds familiar? Some details:

– The episode called Bart to the Future includes vision of the US in 2030
– Lisa Simpson has just been elected president – to succeed Trump
– The nation's financial ruin due to Trump policies is revealed
– In contrast to his 2016 rhetoric, the US is shown taking handouts from China
– Lisa has to institute massive tax hikes in order to dig America out of its hole
– The Simpsons has 'predicted' world events before, including Ebola, the discovery of the Higgs boson particle and the Arab Spring
