ALSO, in season 11, "The Simpsons" predicted a Donald Trump presidency in the 2000 episode "Bart to the Future." The year (on the show) was 2030, and the Simpson administration hadinherited "quite a budget crunch" from President Trump.
It wasn't the first time the show predicted the future. It foresaw the plot twist for "Game of Thrones" character Daenerys Targaryen, Bengt R. Holmstrom's Nobel Prize in Economics and even the mass of the Higgs boson particle.
It also predicted coronavirus. In the season four episode "Marge in Chains," it predicted a global flu pandemic known in the show as the “Osaka Flu," and spread by a Japanese factory worker coughing into a package.
That same episode also featured the citizens of Springfield in a desperate search for a cure, demanding one from Springfield’s medical community, only to ignore Dr. Hibbert’s medical advice. While overturning a truck, they unleashed the killer bees inside -- portending the arrival of the Asian Giant Hornet (also known as “Murder Hornets”) into the United States..
