The Simpsons managed to accurately predict Donald Trump’s presidential victory in an episode titled “Bart to the Future” in 2000. In response, they have released a teaser video.
“[the episode] was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane.”
“The important thing is that Lisa comes into the presidency when America is on the ropes, and that is the condition left by the Trump presidency… 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.”

“Being right sucks,” Bart writes on the board in the opening — clearly indicating that the show is unhappy with their prediction.
