When a cartoon can predict the future of American government that is when we know we have a serious problem.

Americans are referencing an old episode of the “The Simpsons” where they predicted a Trump presidency that needed to be cleaned up by America’s first female President.

Many are now realizing that an episode that premiered in March 2000 basically predicted Donald Trump’s victory in this year’s Presidential election.

In “Bart to the Future,” Bart is shown what lies ahead. The scenario includes sister Lisa as the U.S. president cleaning up the mess left by her predecessor, Trump.

Apparently he caused “quite a budget crunch” to the point that the nation went broke. (That bit starts around 2:20.)

Writer, Dan Greaney told the Hollywood Reporter earlier that he wrote “Bart to the Future” as a warning to America.”

“It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane,” he said.

If Greaney is the oracle he appears to be then this is what we have to look forward to in the near future.
