Watch How ‘The Simpsons’ Reacted to Predicting Donald Trump’s Presidency
During the show’s opening credit sequence on Sunday’s (Nov. 13, 2016) episode, Bart Simpson can be seen writing out “being right sucks” on his class chalkboard, a clear reference to the show’s season 11 prediction back in 2000.
The Simpsons account shared their response on Twitter, too.
In case you missed their prediction, in the episode, titled “Bart to the Future,” we see a peek into adulthood for the Simpson children, with Lisa becoming the country’s “first straight female president.” In it, she discusses how President Trump left the country broke.
“It was a warning to America,” show writer Dan Greaney told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane.”
