Today (Mar.17/16), a very popular web news outlet stated that an episode of the Simpsons, in which a future Trump presidency was possible, was actually presented on March 19, 2000.
Here’s a quote from that popular source: “..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” (end of quote)
However, Explorer One, a you tube channel, has debunked that claim.
Here’s Explorer’s video.
