'Simpsons' On Predicting Trump Presidency: 'Being Right Sucks'

'The Simpsons', which predicted a Donald Trump presidency in grim flash-forward episode, acknowledged being right is not always fun at the beginning of its Sunday episode.

In a nod to its prediction, it began with Bart Simpson writing 'BEING RIGHT SUCKS' over and over again on the school chalkboard.

The 2000 episode titled 'Bart to the Future' depicted America's first straight female President Lisa inheriting a completely broke country from President Trump in 2030.

Dan Greaney, who wrote the episode, said it was meant to be a "warning to America."

"What we needed was for Lisa to have problems that were beyond her fixing, that everything went as bad as it possibly could, and that's why we had Trump be president before her," Greaney told THR. "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."
