Friday OMG. The Simpsons knew all along!

The Simpsons seems to have predicted the Donald's presidency... and it didn't end well: Time travel episode from 2000 featured a broke nation reliant on aid from China. Sounds familiar? Some details:

- The episode called Bart to the Future includes vision of the US in 2030
- Lisa Simpson has just been elected president - to succeed Trump
- The nation's financial ruin due to Trump policies is revealed
- In contrast to his 2016 rhetoric, the US is shown taking handouts from China
- Lisa has to institute massive tax hikes in order to dig America out of its hole
- The Simpsons has 'predicted' world events before, including Ebola, the discovery of the Higgs boson particle and the Arab Spring
