The Simpsons Summed Up The 2016 Election In The Best Way Possible

“It’s just like when you have a bad dream. Except this is real, and will probably ruin your lives.”

Thought this year’s American election was full of surprises? Well, friend, you were WRONG-DIDDLY-WRONG. 

16 years ago, The Simpsons predicted this fucking mess. Why didn’t you listen, America? WHY?

The episode 'Bart To The Future' saw a grown up Lisa Simpson as the incumbent President, who talks about “inheriting quite a budget crunch from President Trump”.

Simpsons creator Matt Groening even admitted in an interview with The Guardian that they used Trump because he was "the most absurd placeholder joke name that we could think of".

AND NOW LOOK WHAT’S HAPPENED. 

 

 

It might have seemed absurd in 2000, but in 2016 President Trump is a crushing reality. One we’re going to have to live with for the next FOUR YEARS. 

All we have left is to turn to the wisdom of Homer Jay Simpson: “It’s just like when you have a bad dream. Except this is real, and will probably ruin your lives.”
