The Simpsons has a reputation for being astoundingly prophetic.
It predicted Donald Trump as President of the United States, the Ebola outbreak of 2014, Disney's purchase of 20th Century Fox, and the ending of Daenerys Targaryen's storyline in Game Of Thrones and that's just a few examples.
Its most recent prediction is eerie in how accurate it actually is. Remember Kamala Harris's purple suit on Inauguration Day? Well, in an episode of the show, President Lisa Simpson is depicted wearing exactly the same outfit, down to the necklace.
I am only going to say this once: the Simpsons has been going for 32 years. There are bound to be coincidences. https://t.co/E02O3LRuBm— Andy Park (@Andy Park) 1611197956.0
The episode, entitled "Bart To The Future," originally aired in 2000. In it, Lisa inherits an ailing US economy from former President Donald Trump.

Since The Simpsons is satire, the fact that so much of it has come true in the past few years shows just how sharp it is.
We predicted that he [Trump] would be president back in 2000," Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, said to The Guardianin 2016.
"[Trump] was, of course, the most absurd placeholder joke name that we could think of at the time, and that's still true. It's beyond satire."

Other parts of this particular inauguration that The Simpsons predicted include the appearance of Tom Hanks as a host of the evening's events.
"Hello. I'm Tom Hanks. The US government has lost its credibility, so it's borrowing some of mine," he says in the 2007 The Simpsons Movie.
With Tom Hanks hosting tonight’s primetime inauguration special it’s time to remind everyone that The Simpsons neve… https://t.co/HlQMKhcjaK— Justin St. Onge (@Justin St. Onge) 1611171484.0

The Simpsons doesn't predict anything we just haven't fixed any of America's problems since 1989.— Nathan (New Video!) (@Nathan (New Video!)) 1611245989.0
How do the SIMPSONS always predict everything about politics and other stuff ! https://t.co/mb3qkXweKE— Vi333 🗣🗣🗣 (@Vi333 🗣🗣🗣) 1611311723.0
There are 21 more years of The Simpsons episodes since this episode for even more future predictions to come true.
We will be keeping our eyes peeled to see what comes to be.
