President Trump episode 'warning to US' says Simpsons writer

6 posts in this topic

It was intended, according to its creator, as a “warning to America”, a horrifying and fantastical vision of the future in which the US – ludicrously – had elected as its president Donald Trump.

But with the property billionaire now the favourite to gain the Republican nomination for the presidency, the episode of The Simpsons that in 2000 foresaw such a laughable outcome has begun looking unnervingly prescient.

A possible future Trump presidency, said the episode’s writer Dan Greaney, “just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane”.

The episode, broadcast almost exactly 16 years ago on 19 March 2000, saw Bart offered a vision of his future in which he is a beer-swilling bum, while his sister Lisa has become president, following Trump’s time in office.

Oh, yeah, 16 years ago they saw this coming?  I call total bs on this. I think the only reason they are saying anything is because they've done too much predicting that came true and they need to do some damage control. Or else the guy is totally psychic.  Go to the link to see the clips and read more.

I see this as being one of three ways.

First option: They are in the know and everything has been planned to f*** us all over and trump cannot be trusted.

Second option: The writers are psychic and predicted it.

Third option: the amount of people watching the simpsons and that episode causes a type of thought form energy wave to permeate the universe. this takes time to form and thus now we have trump running for president.

My bet is on the Third Option!
