THE SIMPSONS PREDICTED IN 2000 THAT AMERICA WOULD 'GO INSANE' AND ELECT TRUMP PRESIDENT.

  Who would have thought back in 2000 that Donald Trump would become president of the United States?
Well, the Simpsons did. 
  Trump appeared in an episode called Bart To The Future 16 years ago and was later referenced in another clip called Trumptastic Voyage. 
The iconic cartoon's creator, Matt Groening, said: '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.' 
Dan Greaney, a writer for the Simpsons also told the Hollywood Reporter that the clip had a dark message behind it. 
He said: 'It was a warning to America. That just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. 
'It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane.’

FOOTNOTE; A $5 bet on the treble of Leicester City winning the Premier League, Britain voting for Brexit and Trump becoming president would have earned a cool $15 million!
