“Being right sucks.”
Sometimes it sucks to be right.
“The Simpsons” recognized its own accurate prediction of a Donald Trump presidency during the show’s opening sequence on Sunday.
Bart Simpson scrawled “being right sucks” on his class chalkboard, in a clear nod to the show’s forecast from the year 2000 that the reality TV personality would one day run the country.
In an episode set in 2030 and entitled “Bart to the Future,” President Lisa Simpson is busy coping with the chaos caused by her predecessor, Trump.
“It was a warning to America,” show writer Dan Greaney told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane.”
