  • Why aren't they specific and say a Texas Senator named Ted Cruz will abandon the state during a statewide freeze and blackouts for Cancun in 2021. They are really trying to hard to convince us they are prophets. Prophets are never wrong and Simpsons have thousands of years and thirty years of false predictions

The writers sold their souls long ago for the one power to predict all the stupid things...well all stupid things stupid people do😂😂😂 Why they will out live us all😂😂

  • Guys, the segment where President Lisa is discussing with her cabinet about the budget crisis was making fun of the then popular third party, the Reform Party, whom Trump gave his support at the time. Don’t rely on the Simpsons predicting future events, life is filled with coincidences and surprises.

    • @Gabriel Rodriguez clearly you don’t know anything about texas’ energy, because renewable energy makes up a tiny percent of the state’s energy. texas gets its energy mostly from nonrenewable sources like natural gas and oil and has its own power grid, because the stupid republicans think that operating their own power grid instead of being interconnected with other states is smart. terrible republican leadership in texas, can’t wait to see it flip blue someday.

  • Ok so this is a common mis conception about the simpsons, so they didn't actually predict Trumps presidency those came out near his presidential candidacy and his presidency, also this was probably not even talking about Ted Cruz also in the clip it is a epidemic not a snow storm, as well as the fac in the description that they call it a scandal is truly pitiful what happened with Gov. Cuomo is a scandal, what Sen. Cruz did was really stupid and insensitive but it wasn't a scandal
