Remember The Simpsons episode in which Bart sees a vision of the year 2030 when he’s a down-on-his-luck rock musician and Lisa is “America’s first straight female president?” It aired 15 years ago and contained an eerie prediction of what we can expect from a Donald Trump presidency.
Surrounded by advisers, including Secretary Milhouse Van Houten, President Lisa Simpson says, “As you know, we’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump.”
“We’re broke,” Milhouse informs Lisa. “Remember when the last administration decided to invest in our nation’s children? Big mistake.”
