It was the Belgian tabloid La Dernière Heure who announced that the famous animated series “The Simpsons” had predicted the arrest of Donald Trump as early as… 1994, according to Radio Free Europe Moldova.
Moreover, in the same episode, the beloved character, who became a symbol of the American dysfunctional family from the beginning of the “90s”, also foretold the release of a new trailer for the movie “Barbie”.
Moreover, when there was talk of Trump’s impeachment, the series had already predicted his election as president of the United States.
29 years later, in April, the 2 predictions came true. Trump has become the first president in U.S. history to face a criminal trial, and the main charge is that he offered $ 130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels for not revealing their 2006 relationship during the presidential campaign.
And also in April, the trailer for the film “Barbie” was released.
As an explanation, a screenwriter for The Simpsons said that, “If you write 700 episodes and you don’t predict anything, then it means you’re kind of stupid. If you shoot enough arrows, you’ll end up hitting in the center of the target.”
The 2 events were mentioned in a 1994 episode entitled “Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy”. Last week, Tuesday, April 4, the trailer for “Barbie,” Greta Gerwi’s new film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, was unveiled, while Donald Trump’s court announced the 34 charges of “falsification of accounting documents” for which he is indicted.
In the 1994 episode titled “Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy,” a TV presenter discusses Lisa Simpson’s campaign to urge the creators of the Barbie doll to come up with a more feminist toy that will give confidence to little girls. The presenter then ends his news bulletin announcing that the president has been arrested.
