[video] Did the Simpsons predict Donald Trump becoming President?

Astonishingly this video was posted back in Aug 29, 2015. There are bunch of theories on whether or not Matt Groening and his crew predicted a Trump Presidency and they have spoken out to set the record straight.

Earlier this year Simpsons writer Dan Greaney ex­­plained why they had “predicted” a Trump presidency back in 2000 .

“It was a warning to America,” he said. “That just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was consistent with the vision of America going insane.

“What we needed was for Lisa to have problems beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that’s why we had Trump be president before her.”

 

Show creator Matt Groening said last month: “Back in 2000 Trump was, of course, the most absurd placeholder joke name that we could think of at the time and that’s still true. It’s beyond satire.”

Trump was mocked in another episode of The Simpsons in 2015, aired after he announced he was running for president. Trumptastic Voy­­age had him on an escalator with Homer Simpson – mimicking the real entrance he made to announce his candidacy with wife Melania.

Trump was later accused of hiring actors to cheer for him. So The Simpsons showed onlookers holding PAID signs among VOTE placards. Homer is seen pondering Trump’s “gravity-defying comb-over” and wondering: “If I touch it, will it heal my baldness?”

“Bart makes a short film version of his Angry Dad Web series and is up for an Oscar and other awards, but Homer tries to take all the credit,” executive producer Al Jean tells TV Guide Magazine. “Halle starts talking about herself as she’s presenting. She ad-libbed something she actually dreams about at night that we left in.”
