The Simpsons know all.

In a season 11 episode from March 19, 2000, the long-running animated series The Simpsons essentially predicted Donald Trump’s soon-to-be presidency.

The episode, titled “Bart to the Future,” has a Native American oracle give Bart a glimpse into his future. The vision eventually takes Bart to the White House where his sister Lisa is the nation’s “first straight female president.”

Around the 2:20 in the clip above, Lisa is seen in the Oval Office discussing the inheritance of “quite a budget crunch from President Trump,” which has left the country “broke.”
