As the clock struck midnight in 2024, guess who made a comeback with their extraordinary ability to glimpse into the future? None other than The Simpsons!
From robot presidents to airborne cars, their eccentric predictions often eerily align with reality. This time around, it appears that The Simpsons might have foreseen events that closely resemble what has transpired. Let’s delve into 10 of their most astonishing predictions and see if Springfield’s crystal ball holds any surprises for the upcoming year.
Trump’s 2024 Presidential Run
On November 15, 2022, Donald Trump, the former U.S. President who fell short in his bid for a second term, stepped into the spotlight and announced his candidacy for the 2024 elections. Eager to reclaim the position he lost in 2021, Trump made his declaration. Interestingly, in a 2015 episode titled ‘BART To the Future,’ Homer Simpson is seen flying past a sign reading ‘Trump 2024,’ a prediction that preceded Trump’s presidency.
